Why You Need the Church and the Church Needs You: A Blessing to Believers

Think of your last family gathering. Did you watch from a distance or were you part of the conversation? Were you seated at the table, or did you observe from the next room? Did you stay for dessert or sneak out early? Family gatherings aren’t spectator sports. Everyone is a part. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out church is a family gathering of believers . . . and everyone has a part to play. We’ll see how we need the Church, and the Church needs us.

Faith 101 | Fighting Victoriously

If there’s a war raging, and someone mistakenly stumbles into the middle of it, the warriors don’t suddenly stop and say, ‘Hey, wait a minute, fellas, this guy isn’t part of it. Let’s wait ‘til he gets outta the way. No people who stumble into battle unaware often get caught in the crossfire. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie wants to make sure that doesn’t happen to us. He points out that we’re surrounded by spiritual warfare, and we need to be prepared to fight, and fight victoriously.

Faith 101 | Back to Basics

A pilot said, “the basics of aviation are really quite simple. You push the control stick forward and the houses get real big; you pull it back and the houses get real small.” But imagine if a pilot did lose track of the basics—can’t remember what those switches do, or even why they’re important. Well, today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us with a refresher course on the basics of the Christian faith. It’s a good reminder of the fundamentals that’ll keep us all from crashing and burning.

What to Do When the Odds Are Against You | God's Provision

Sometimes we may think that our effort, by itself, does count for much. Maybe we’re the only believer in our family ... or the only Christian at work ... or the only one in our group of friends at school. The odds are against us. Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to one of the most encouraging stories in the Old Testament. We’ll catch up with a military leader about to fight a battle, when God told him to send most of his army home so that God alone would get credit for the victory.
