The city of Ephesus and Portland have a ton of things in common. Both were/are port cities, highly spiritual and sexually charged. Join us on Sundays at 9 or 11 a.m. as we discover how Paul instructs the church in Ephesus and what that can mean for us today.
Part 1: The Return
Whatever captivates our hearts, controls our destiny. In this teaching, Pastor Mike kicks off our Ephesians series by diving into the circumstances that surrounded the beginning of the church in Ephesus.
Part 2: Irresistible Allure
If God does not captivate your heart, it will be captivated by something else. Does God hold my attention? In this teaching, we dive into what God wants to do to captivate our hearts.

Understanding who we are in Christ determines the direction of our lives. In this teaching, we consider how we live in response to God in us and how that guards us from spiritual apathy or spiritual gluttony.

Contrast often defines the capacity of something. When we understand how offensive our sin is, we understand the depth of God’s love. In this teaching, we continue our dive into the book of Ephesians and how it expresses these truths to the early church.

We are God’s masterpiece. God has designed each of us to play a distinct role and accomplish a specific purpose. Our understanding of forgiveness, purpose, and community all play a critical role in understanding.

Most of us attach our identity to our past. But God attaches our identity to the future He has given us. In this teaching, we look at how we live towards who we are in Christ.

Part 11: Submit
What does foolishness, filters, submission, and a happy marriage all have in common? More than you might think. In this teaching, we explore how to live a life that is oriented around Christ and the ways that find expression in our relationships.
