There are a handful of questions that most people will ask at least once in their life. Usually, it goes something like this: Is there a God, can He be known and if so, does He have a plan for me? Well, we would say a resounding "Yes!" to all three, and as we finish-out the series, "Scars", Pastor Chris delivers what could possibly be one of his best teachings yet on knowing God and knowing His Will. This is a fast-paced message, packed with relevant scriptures, memorable and "Tweetable" tag lines, and solid life applications to help get your feet planted firmly on the path that God has laid out for you. If you, or someone you know, struggles with really knowing God and His Plan and Will for their life, this is the message you've been waiting for! Thank you so much for taking the time to join us for this series. Be sure to follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/destinychurchjax) and share us with your friends and family.

It's probably no coincidence that this message comes at a season when civility, respect, and mercy in our popular culture seem to be at all-time-low. As we wrestle and wrangle over political leanings, gender identity issues, and myriad social concerns, our public discourse seems to lack the grace it once had. And as Pastor Chris demonstrates, in this latest installment of our series "Scars", God's Grace, expressed through His Church, has the power to transform our lives, our culture, and ultimately the nations. Do you really want to begin living like Jesus lived? This message is a great place start!

Do you ever look at the weakest or what you feel are the worst parts about you and consider them a gift to be shared with the world? More to the point, do you ever see your scars as something to be ashamed of; something to be concealed for fear of what others may think? This week in our new series, "Scars", Pastor Chris reminds us that scars are, among many things, a sign that we can heal. The story behind your pain is the first healing step for someone else, but you have to share that story. You have to let your scars show, and this message can be a real encouragement for you or someone that you know who needs to share their story.

Scars come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes they are shown-off like a badge of honor, and other times they are hidden or covered out of shame or guilt. They can be physical, emotional, and spiritual. They can be the result of our own actions, or the careless or violent actions of others. Regardless, each scar has a story attached to it, and as Pastor Chris points out in the first message of the brand new series "Scars", each story can be used by God to redeem and reclaim those stories for His Glory and Purpose. Maybe you or someone you know needs to know that their story isn't over, that God is in the business of restoration and redemption. We encourage you to make time to listen to this powerful message and pass it along!

As you will hear today, the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus have collectively made him the single most influential figure in human history. Even as our own culture is moving into a post-modern age, it is still Christ asking "Who do you say that I am?". This Easter, we invite you to know Jesus and to know His purpose, peace and plan for your life. All of us here at Destiny Church of Jacksonville are so happy that you've chosen to join us today!

I'm pretty sure that the title of today's message is no stranger to you. We've all experienced those seasons of life that are unpredictable, exciting, scary, and even difficult. It's just how life is! With that in mind, we invite you to join us and one of our favorite guest teachers, Aaron Maners, to explore some of the reasons and purposes behind some of the situations we often find ourselves in. So get your Bible and journal handy and hang on as we explore those "Crazy Seasons".

Passage: John 4:3-42
Duration: 41 mins 38 secs
Either in the mirror or in the lives around you, you see it every day; the pursuit of fulfillment. We speed off in our cars toward it, rush from store to store in search of it, move from relationship to relationship hoping to find it. But the story of the Samaritan woman and Jesus at the well shows us how God longs for us to look to Him for that ultimate fulfillment, and today, missionaries and guest teachers Miles and Melanie Phelps, give us some real-life examples of lives being transformed by God's Love and the Message of hope that The Gospel brings. So get ready to challenged and encouraged!

If you live in the Jacksonville area or are just visiting, we would love for you to join us for one of our Sunday morning worship services.

With all of the communications technology that we enjoy on a daily basis, it may surprise you just how isolated a lot of people feel. We can work from home, we can text, email, tweet and snap to get our best face out there, but for many people, the human connection is missing. God made us to be in community, and in this installment of our series "Lift", Pastor Chris breaks down the modern myth of independence and shows that now, more than ever, community is vital to our social, physical, and spiritual health. In short, we need each other. So grab a friend or two and join us today!
