Wearing Jesus Out
Lots of people treat Christianity like it’s an outfit you hang in your closet six days a week, then take out and wear on Sunday. It doesn’t work that way. Jesus is something you put on and wear out there in the world every day.
Resist
If someone put a gun to your head and said, “If you want to live, call Jesus a liar,” what would you do? Such personally apocalyptic scenarios are thankfully rare in the west. But in some parts of the world, average people have found the courage to reach deep into their faith and hold on even at the cost of their lives. I actually think most of us would surprise ourselves were we to face such a moment. What may be harder is to resist the little compromises we face every day.
The Struggle is Real
What do you say to someone who is enduring a terrible struggle – one that is about to get a lot worse? That depends, of course, on who you are, how close your relationship to the person in pain is, how much you know about that particular kind of struggle and about a thousand other factors. But if you’re Jesus – here’s what you say.
Where is the Love?
What would Jesus say to a church that was known for its hard work in the community, its perseverance in the face of persecution and for its strong, biblical teaching? He’d start with “Way to go!” But then he’d point to one glaring problem and ask, “What’s up with that?”
Of Course He Isn’t Safe
Jesus. More books have been written about him than any other figure in history. He is the most enduring icon ever. And that’s the problem. He has become an icon. A pliable image easily turned into a marketing device or mascot for everything from tee shirts to television shows, political movements to motion pictures. He can be your homeboy, your good buddy or your boyfriend. He is useful, attractive, and he sells; which suggests that somewhere along the line we missed something really important. God intended for us to be conformed to the image of Christ, not the other way around.
Imagine Yourself Celebrated
I attended a funeral this week. Family and friends celebrated the life of the departed with words of praise, gratitude and love. Do you ever wonder what they’ll say at your funeral? Want to know how to make sure you to are celebrated? Join us as we close out the Imagine series with a final look at two very important and powerful words.
Imagine Yourself Innocent
Do you blush less often than you used to? Do things you used to find offensive hardly raise an eyebrow anymore? Would you listen to your favorite music if your mom was riding in the car with you? We live in a coarse culture. And if you play in the yard, you’re going to track in some dirt. This week, we take a look at how we have become accustomed to impurity.
Imagine Yourself Righteous
When you choose to do the right thing – what’s behind that? Why do you sometimes say “Yes,” when you’d rather say “No,” because in that moment, saying “Yes,” is the right thing to do? Why do you sometimes stay when you’d rather run – or run when you’d rather stay? In this sermon, I’ll show you how your answer probably has something to do with marbles.
Imagine Yourself Respected
Shark Week will soon show up on the Discovery Channel. We’ll learn all there is to know about these fearsome predators. Here’s a question – why doesn’t Discovery do Dolphin Week? Dolphins are so much nicer. There’s actually a lesson there – fear and respect are as different from each other as sharks and dolphins. Lots of people think the way to win respect is to intimidate, bully and instill fear. Lots of people are wrong. Listen to today's lesson and learn how to earn genuine respect, how to keep it and what to do if you’ve lost it.
Imagine Yourself Real
A long time ago, a politician named Pilate asked a prisoner named Jesus this question: “What is truth?” The answer a lot of people would give these days is, “Whatever you want it to be.” Is truth really that squishy? What does it mean to be authentic? We’ll get into those questions and more in this message.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

As someone who has been a member of Twickenham since the beginning, there is no place that I would rather be. I appreciate that we have an eldership that bases decisions on biblical principles rather than tradition. There is a broad spectrum of people who come from different backgrounds than those of us who were raised in the church of Christ and I feel that it has been beneficial. I like that Twickenham has been a part of the community instead of isolating ourselves from other denominations.

The many ministry opportunities that members can find to participate in. The uplifting worship services; the praise team is wonderful! The children's programs. I love that we have young families as well as older members worshipping together!

. . . this church has been a HUGE blessing to our family. When we came to Twickenham, I felt like we were spiritually dying on the vine. Since coming to Twickenham, God has had us on an amazing journey that is sometimes hard and sometimes beautiful - but either way I know we are both diving deeper into Him! Yay!
