The Kingdom Within

Like A Child

Elder Curtis Myers

Our culture is constantly comparing performances to identify greatness. This has shaped our values from inward heart humility to outward performance anxiety.  However the Father is more concerned with our motives than performance.  He speaks to us from a place of acceptance then transforms us through His word & the Holy Spirit.  This heart change characterizes the Kingdom Within.

Healing the Orphaned Heart

Pastor Kevin Brown

Humanity became orphaned in the garden.  We rejected our spiritual relationship with our Heavenly Father in the first generation of our existence in the earth.  Orphaned hearts are the greatest and most destructive curse in our lives and the earth today. We must be healed by the grace of God our Father or we will end in destruction.

Defeating the Spirit of Divorce

Elder Mike Dixon

One of the most critical elements to the advancement of the Kingdom of God is the covenant of marriage and the formation of the family unit. Uncontrolled anger and lust are weapons the enemy uses to mitigate divorce and thereby destroy the family. We must recognize the destructiveness of divorce – mentally, emotionally, socially, financially, spiritually and generationally and use everything within heaven’s love arsenal to defeat the spirit of divorce.

Breaking the Addiction to Lust

Pastor Kevin Brown

Jesus continues to establish His "Kingdom Within" by rescuing us from the eternally destructive power of illicit sexual desire. The enemy of lust has caused more destruction to lives, families, children and society than almost anything that can be named -- second only to anger, contempt and violent judgement. We must break the addiction to lust or it will irreparably break us.

Unsurrendered Anger Is The Kiss of Death

Pastor Kevin Brown

Anger is not a result of the fall nor is it a sin to be angry. God gave us emotions and anger is a part of those emotions. But anger, left unsurrendered to God and acted upon is the kiss of death. A person in the habit of becoming angry and claiming the right to do whatever comes next because someone made them angry, is the person Jesus had in mind when He declared they are in danger of "the judgement, the council and hell fire." Anger left unsurrendered destroys the personality, character and heart of the person. Unsurrendered anger is the kiss of death.

The Kingdom Within: The Power of Community

Elder Curtis Myers

The Kingdom of God calls us into relationship with Him and with one another. Living in community transforms us through the blessings and challenges of interpersonal relationships. As we esteem one another we follow God’s prescription that brings healing into our lives and into the lives of others. It is critical that we live in healthy community in order to extend the Kingdom of God. Quite simply-we need each other.

Becoming the Woman God Made: A Celebration of the Office of Woman

By Mary Jackson, Angela M. Brown, LeToyja Averhart

Innate to the woman God made upon creation is the ability to mother. Whether or not we have children of our own, inherent to us is the ability to help, nurture, incubate, problem-solve, adapt, protect, hold up and hold it down! Women are not only the rib, in many cases we're the backbone, because if we fall apart, so does everything else. This Mother’s Day Message celebrates all women, highlighting the unique abilities God has graced women with, to not only be restored to the woman God made, but for women to play a role in the restoration of mankind as she serves in the home, in the marketplace and in ministry.

Overcoming the Kiss of Death

By Elder Pastor Kevin Brown

Jesus begins the work of His Kingdom Within by addressing the Kingdom inhibiting and destructive nature of anger.  Anger left unsurrendered to God becomes contempt and ultimately violent judging of individuals and entire people groups.  Anger becomes the kiss of death in our lives when we don't allow it to be the alarm it was meant to be, pointing us to the assumed rights, judgments and ungodly attitudes we carry within.

Being Disruptive Light

By Elder Curtis Myers

Being the salt & light in our world requires disruptive action lead by the Holy Spirit. We must see needs and be willing to be inconvenienced to bring about His will in the earth. As we reflect His light we become ambassadors of reconciliation in the role God has called us-sons & daughters.

The Kingdom Within - Making Ander Bow and Confess

By Pastor Kevin Brown

What if being a follower of Jesus went beyond repeating a prayer, attending a weekly service and giving as an act of worship?  What if our adherence to the scriptures went beyond groupthink and shared norms?  What if the Kingdom of God was within us and God wanted to shape every aspect of our lives individually and interpersonally? Those revolutionary thoughts are exactly what Jesus taught and demonstrated to be true.  They're what He died to prove and was resurrected to establish.  The Kingdom Within. 


Jesus did not come to begin a new religion -- a faith characterized by rules and systems -- as much as He came to ignite a revolution -- a fundamental change in power and structures igniting an uprising against accepted norms. Jesus was a revolutionary, who came to establish a revolution in the heart of each of His followers. He came to establish -- The Kingdom Within.
