Sunday Mornings

John’s Gospel is an invitation for you to find life and live it abundantly. When we encounter Jesus we find fulfillment, forgiveness, and freedom that only He can give.

Sunday Evenings

The Book of Exodus is key to understanding Jesus. It is an exciting story, a historical story, and it points us to and inspires us to worship Jesus, it is our story.



Systematic Theology can be daunting. Often times the lay person, who desires to serve the Lord, feels he or she is not well enough educated to confidently discuss topics such as the atonement, ecclesiology, or eschatology.                              

The Engaging The Mind Podcast seeks to  simplify some of the academic rigor of Systematic Theology. Look for new episodes every week. In addition to those listed below, visit PODCASTS for all episodes.

Reflecting on the Word of God

A 40-Day Devotional
Written from a compilation of sermons Pastor Blake Gideon preached from Matthew and Mark, this devotional will help you to reflect on the Word of God. Each day's entry explains the meaning of a short passage of scripture and helps you to apply it to your life that day. Along with the scriptures and prayer, this book will help you have a fruitful quiet time.

Soaring With The Eagles           

The Priority of Prayer
You are not alone. This book sets out to empower you to soar with the eagles and take your prayers to a whole new level. Using Biblical, theological, historical, and personal viewpoints, each aspect of prayer is unraveled. Starting with the family altar, you will learn practical steps to use in your prayer life to give you hope, sustaining power, and preparedness for spiritual warfare and intercession.     

Your struggle can be over. You can learn how to effectively increase your understanding and hunger for prayer today.


Unvarnished Truth

Life's Greatest Story
What is truth? A lot of people have asked that question through the ages. Unfortunately, our own opinions or desires often obscure the truth. For many, truth can become whatever we want to believe.

In much the same way as a person strips away the layers of old paint or varnish to get the original beauty of a priceless antique, this book seeks to remove all the layers of lies and opinions that clog our culture, to get to the unvarnished truth of what really matters. Through this process, we'll see that the truth in Christ becomes our greatest story.

It is time to rediscover the unvarnished truth about God and accept Jesus' challenge to share the truth with others.



Living Your Life With Influential Purpose
I believe the first step for any Christian is to know who they are in Christ. If this first step is missed or perhaps later forgotten, it can lead to a life of continual frustration, disappointment, and even depression.

Every human being on the face of the earth has an established identity—and that means you. I am not talking about your name, social security number, or even your fingerprint; I'm talking about the way you see yourself and the words you speak to yourself.  Because of the sin of mankind, we as humans tend to compare ourselves to others and speak self-defeating words in our mind

But I have great news for you: your internal negative dialogue can change! And this is what this book is all about.
