The Danger of Becoming Self-Righteous | Francis Chan
35:19

If you were to ask someone right now, “Are you a good person?” what response would you expect to hear? For the vast majority of people in America, we would determine how “good” we are by comparing ourselves to others rather than to Jesus, Himself. In this  classic teaching, Francis Chan confronts the sin of pride by taking a look at the Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector found in Luke 18. He reminds us that, in order to guard against over confidence and self-righteousness, we need to remember who is ultimately our final Judge.

Shallow Prayer...Shallow Church | Francis Chan
30:25

Imagine someone offers to pray for you, what would be the first thing you’d request prayer for? Many  times, the focus of our prayers is on our physical needs or our relationships. But how often do we pray with the depth and fervor of the Apostle Paul? In this this week’s episode, Pastor Francis Chan expounds on the prayer of Paul found in Ephesians chapter 1. We pray that you would be inspired to pray like Paul for all the saints and the local churches across the globe. This message was taken from Forerunner Christian Church on November 27, 2021.

God’s Love in Action | Francis Chan
27:11

How do you know that God loves you? And what is the proof that His love is alive in you? In this week’s message, Pastor Francis Chan reminds us that the evidence of God’s Spirit in our lives is fruit – outer works that reveal the Father’s love overflowing to those in need around us. When we become doers of His Word, and not just hearers, we will find true joy. This message was taken from Forerunner Christian Church on June 12, 2021.

God’s Transforming Love | Francis Chan
34:02

If you watch the news and consider the current state of the world, it’s obvious that we are in desperate need of the Spirit of God. But what is it that creates an atmosphere for His Spirit to move? Is it a perfectly manicured church service or a clever sermon? Is it a big budget and a large campus? Or do we need something deeper? In this week’s episode, Pastor Francis explains the powerful change that can take place as we receive the love and mercy of God and extend that love to others. This message was taken from Forerunner Christian Church on May 1st, 2021.

The Beginning of Wisdom
25:37

In this week’s episode, Pastor Francis Chan poses a sobering question to all Christians. Do you believe the truth of Scripture above your own thoughts and feelings? And if so, do your actions reflect it? In a culture that is drifting further and further away from God, Pastor Francis reminds us that now is the time to simply, and lovingly, speak His truth to the world. This message is from the Azusa Pacific University Chapel on December 9, 2019.

The Power of the Word of God | Francis Chan
44:08

When we read scripture, there is a clear difference between when man is speaking and when God is speaking. Hebrews 4:12 describes the Word of God as living and active. While good sermon messages from powerful preachers can be helpful and encouraging, it is only God’s words that have the ability to change us in a way that far surpasses the thoughts of man. In this week’s episode Paster Francis Chan shows us how abiding in His Word has the power to change how we see the world and our role within it.

Describing God | Francis Chan
26:32

When you think of God, what comes to mind? Does it align with how the Bible describes God? AW Tozer said, “The most important thing about you is what you think about when you think about GOD” In this week’s episode, Pastor Francis Chan encourages us to look at God through the lens of Scripture with reverence and a holy fear. We learn  that an accurate picture of what God is like can change not only the way you pray, but also your entire way of life.

The Great Commission and the Next Generation - Part 2 | Andy Byrd
51:00

Last week we started a two-part sermon series from our friend in the ministry, Andy Byrd of YWAM Kona. In this week’s episode, Andy continues his message on the current state of evangelism and missions in the 21st century. In this powerful teaching, he explains that the way to see the next spiritual awakening in the US and around the world is when the strategy of the Great Commission connects to the heart of the Great Commission.

31:07

An Update from Francis Chan
21:05

As many of you know, near the beginning of 2020, Pastor Francis Chan and his family followed God's lead and moved to Asia to work with the local church there. In this week's episode we sit down with Pastor Francis Chan as he provides us with an update on what's been going on this past year from his time in Hong Kong to his transition back into the US. He also shares with us a few of the things God has put on his heart along the journey he's currently on regarding unity in the church across the greater Body of Christ.

A New Season of Power in the Church | Francis Chan
25:12

When you woke up this morning, did you come to God with an expectation for Him to move in power today? In this week’s episode, Pastor Francis Chan shares the importance of approaching God with expectation and faith. He explains how he believes there is a new season at hand for the Church in America where faith is tested and worship is elevated. Now is not the time to compromise on our worship towards God. He deserves and expects our very best, wanting to see unity in His body. This message was taken from Forerunner Christian Church on May 8th, 2021.

The Unity of Communion | Francis Chan
49:39

When you think about “church”, how do you imagine it looking like? What do you actually believe about “church” and the body of Christ? Have you ever thought about how you’ve reached those conclusions? Is it based on what you were taught or maybe your own prior experiences? Or is it founded on what we see in the Word of God? In this week's episode, Pastor Francis Chan challenges the Church to not settle for an unsatisfying imitation of the real thing, but rather to pursue unity and Christ's vision for his bride. This message was from the We Are Church gathering at the FOX Theatre on October 17.

The Intimacy of Communion | Francis Chan
43:54

There is a deep intimacy that takes place when we come together, in unity, at the Lord's table. God's desire is to commune with His Body, not just a collection of individuals. When we put aside our differences and join together to receive the Body and the Blood, something very special occurs.

The Sacredness of Communion | Francis Chan
56:13

For many Christians, the sacredness, holiness, and presence of God is thought to be more intense in the Old Testament compared to how one might assume God is in the New Testament. In this weeks episode, Pastor Francis Chan confronts this misconception as he continues on the topic of Communion. We learn that we have greater access to the power and presence of God today by our participation and partaking of the “Lord’s Supper”. He explains how we desperately need the Church body to come together for the institution of this holy sacrament. This message was from the We Are Church gathering at the Fox Theatre on October 3rd.

The Centrality of Communion | Francis Chan
54:19

For the early church, communion was the main reason to gather. Pastor Francis Chan speaks on the importance and the power that takes place when we partake in the Lord’s supper. Our hope and prayer is that communion would no longer be an afterthought in the church, but the presence of Christ and the breaking of bread would be central.

Rethinking Church
52:41
Francis Chan shares at the Rethinking Church | Rethinking Mission conference at McLean Bible Church on Oct. 12, 2018. In one of his most powerful sermons on the church, Francis talks about the nonnegotiable aspects of the church according to Scripture and what it means for the modern church.
