The Enduring Character of Love

At the Last Supper, Jesus appoints his disciples to produce fruit that will last. Our desire on the Dominican Republic mission trip was to live out Christ’s commands and leave fruit in the Dominican Republic that would remain and outlast us. In this message, Pastor Karl shares some stories from the mission trip, the fruit that was left, as well as their visit to meet the Compassion Child his family sponsors.

Compassion Like God

We get a beautiful picture of who God is by looking at the life of Christ. Being LIKE Christ is something else entirely. One of the most difficult areas of our faith to grasp is compassion. It's easy to have compassion on a little child who is hurt, but it's much harder to have compassion on your annoying co-worker, roommate, friend, or even your own spouse. It's easy to think to ourselves "well, that's not my gifting" but God deserves more than that and so does his creation. Compassion Like God      Download       Play

Fight the Good Fight

The fastest growing sport in America, with a passionate following among young people, is Ultimate Fighting. There is something in all of us that attracts us to fighting. Many like to watch, but few want to actually fight!
It may seem counter-intuitive that the word "fight" is a significant command in the New Testament, but it is! It is essential that as Christians we are fighters. We must learn to fight. We must learn to fight the good fight, or we will simply waste away and our faith will die. Fight the Good Fight      Download       Play

Eternity

It is easy to forget--amid all the challenges and troubles of life, all of the background noise of the world, and all of the injustices we see around us--ETERNITY! We easily forget what is really at stake. We easily lose sight of what we cannot see, and instead, take hold of what we feel and experience from day-to-day. Soon we are clinging to a reality that is not our true reality.

My hope is that this series will give you a boost of fresh encouragement, hope and renewed perspective to carry you through the challenges of life.

2016 Rock Parenting Conference

When you think of your child as an adult, what do you envision? What do you want your child to become? Proverbs teaches that a “foolish child is a calamity to a father” but it also teaches us that “Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child.” How will you train and parent your child to leave behind their foolishness and become a man or woman of responsibility?

The Rock’s 2016 Parenting Conference will address these questions and specifically how to train our kids to be responsible. You’ll hear from four different fathers who are in various stages of raising responsible children.

May our children grow up to be responsible in each area of their lives – as a child of God, as a person, at their jobs, as a friend, and in their future marriage and families. Sowing the seeds of future responsibility starts now!

Knowing God

Since the very dawn of man, the devil's single greatest tactic has been to discredit God, to distort and deceive our view and understanding of God's very character. He did this to Adam and Eve, and it brought death and chaos to all humankind as a result. There is nothing more valuable, more significant to a Christian than knowing God! To really know and undestand who God is and what God is like is our greatest source of strength and joy.

Go the Old Way, Live Long and Prosper

You have heard people say, "They sure don't make things like they used to." Their are many times that saying proves true. They aren't making furniture like they used to; they aren't making dishwashers like they used to; they aren't making marriages like they used to; they aren't making kids like they used to.

Everyone desires the new. But in many cases, the new is killing us! The modern diet--killing us! The modern morality--killing us! Modern religion--it leaves us empty and cold. In so very many ways, the new ways are ruining lives. Is their a better way? Is their a way to live a long, prosperous and enriching life?

There is! There honestly, truly is. Join me, Pastor Mark Darling this Friday as we discover THE OLD WAY, LIVE LONG AND PROSPER.

Tapping into God

Many Christians find themselves struggling to live the Christian life. They are trying—sincerely trying—to do the right thing. They are sincerely trying to please God, but they find themselves burdened. They feel a weight and a strain as they seek to follow Christ. They feel as though they are constantly walking through thick mud, trudging along the Christian path.

What if there was a way to change this reality? What if there is truly something missing in the Christian experience? What if there is a way to tap into a greater power? Join us at The Rock for our new series, "Tapping into God," as we discover how to experience the power and joy God offers in the Christian life.

Exiles - Great Hope in Daunting Times

We are living in unprecedented times. For the first time in American history, Christians are the marginalized minority. Biblical values are no longer the majority view. But it’s gone further. True believers are being openly ridiculed, scorned, and resented. Our nation once was based on Biblical principles, but now those same beliefs are treated with disdain. America is transitioning to an anti-Christian nation. We are beginning to experience what true Christians have always lived through—being the ostracized minority in a hostile culture. We are now exiles and aliens in our own nation. Yet, true believers in the past lived with great hope in daunting times. And so can we. Please join us for three captivating weekends at your location. This year, we are bringing UNITE to you by bringing in speaking pastors from our other locations.

The Bible People Who Shaped Me

All of us, when we reach a certain age in our lives, must make a decision as to who we allow to shape and influence our lives—who becomes our heroes and who becomes the people we aspire to be like. This choice has a major impact on the person we will become. Before I began to follow Jesus Christ, I had specific people I wanted to be like. I listened to their music, I read their books or articles written about them, I emulated the ir hairstyles, and I wore their style of clothes. When I began to follow Jesus Christ in 1975, I knew it was critical to my spiritual life and to the success of my spiritual journey to develop new mentors and immerse myself in the lives of people I wanted to become like. I longed for new heroes. This is my story—of the bible people who shaped me. Join me, Pastor Mark Darling, for this new series “The Bible People Who Shaped Me."

Rekindling your spiritual fire

We have all just finished the year , and a new one has begun. For many , the last year brought many challenges, and difficulties. For some the year ended in discouragement and the fading of their spiritual fire and enthusiasm for their faith. Others look back and have found that though they had great intentions last year, they ended the year lukewarm and dealing with the same spiritual ruts  they have always struggled with. This is a great time to rekindle our spiritual fires. It is a good time , in the middle of the cold minnesota winter to add some wood to our fire and get our spiritual fires roaring  and blazing  again in our christian faith. Just how do we rekindle our spiritual fire? How  can we renew  our spiritual vigor? How can we avoid those spiritual killers, and keep our fire red hot?

What does Christmas tell us about God?

For thousands of years the Christmas story has been celebrated around the world. All of us have grown up celebrating Christmas in one way or another. Many Christmas celebrations included going to a church service, exchanging gifts, eating lots of food, watching lots of football, or all of the above. We have heard the Christmas story many times-- of Joseph and Mary, of the baby born in the manger, the wise men, the star, and shepherds. We've even seen it reenacted on a stage! But what does Christmas tell us about God? The answers are amazing!

Instructions for Aliens{1 Peter}

Did you realize that as Christians we are aliens in this world? We really do not belong in this world. We are human, but divine. We are mortal, but immortal. We eat physical food, but cannot survive without spiritual food. We are weak, but possess incredible, supernatural power. What makes the residents of this world happy, brings us sorrow. What brings us happiness, they cannot stand!

How do we survive and thrive in this strange world? How, as aliens, do we live in this evil world? How should we conduct ourselves as people of God on this dying planet?

Believe it or not, there are divine instructions and principles that only we aliens can grasp and understand. These instructions are life to us. They teach us to thrive in this world where everything dies.
