Lost & Found

What’s the point of the local church? Making better citizens? Feeding and clothing the poor? Performing miracles? Inspiring people to be better? Instilling fear or guilt or shame? So many people have so many ideas, and we find ourselves with many kinds of churches. As followers of Jesus, it seems we should be confident about the central purpose of the church. If it has been lost over the past 2,000 years, can we reclaim it? Join us as Rich Barrett clarifies the mission and vision of Access Church.

Better Decisions, Fewer Regrets, part 3 – The Legacy Question

Your life is more than random, disconnected events.
It’s a story being written.
Whether it’s a thoughtful response or an emotionally fueled reaction,
we write the stories of our lives one decision at a time.
