Essential Church—Be Merciful to those who doubt

Loved this concept when you encounter people struggling with their faith...let’s go to Jesus. What do you think of Him? And there is a positive response...well I think He’s great. Hang onto that...let’s go with that for a little bit. That’s the central part of our faith, not the side issues that can derail us. How that would change every conversation with someone struggling and show love and mercy.

Essential Church

Today’s interview with Pastor Ray Johnston was a thrill for me. I’m in the military and have twice been stationed near Sacramento. On both occasions, my family and I attended Bayside Church. Previously, when stationed in Colorado, I also attended New Life. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to see two churches that have poured so much into my family connect with each other. Keep up the great podcast!

Be Merciful to Thos Who Doubt

I just listened to this podcast by my Pastors, Glenn Packiam and Andrew Arndt, and do the BEST JOB, BY FAR, of addressing the recent news of Josh Harris and Marty Sampson, those in the church who are dealing with uncertainty about faith and Christianity, as well as those in the church who need to understand how to deal with people who are having those doubts, and I MUST SAY, what they are saying and the articles they are writing on this subject are really what we need to hear the church saying right now....this is probably the best, most important essential church podcast I have heard so far, the first one in the 5th season. Please listen to this 25 minute podcast and read their articles... because they are SO ON POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to have myself another listen. This is relevant to ALL OF US!

An ESSENTIAL in my Podcast Collection

This podcast feels like the leadership team of NewLife Church just turns on a microphone in their meetings and conversations to allow anyone access to what they are thinking and where they see the church going. As a leader in my early 20s I LOVE tuning in each week because I know I am going to hear an honest, honoring, and humble conversation about what is going on in THE Church and what this team sees going right, and how they are ACTIVELY addressing things that are not so great. The Essential Church Podcast is an Essential listen if you want a behind the scenes look at the church!

The Heart of the Matter

I have been listening for the past few months and so appreciate the topics you cover, but more than that, the way you speak about such topics. It is clear that your desire is for church leaders to have a heart after God, to be faithful, and to be thoughtful about how we pastor. Your conversations resonate deeply in my soul, and I’m grateful to be on this journey with you all. Grace and peace.

Thoughtful yet Constructive

I listen to a lot of podcasts, most of them Christian or Biblical in some way. Many are “encouraging” and “constructive” but are overly simplistic, others are thoughtfully critical and intriguing, yet deconstructive and somewhat discouraging. This might be the only podcast that is thoughtfully critical yet constructive. They look at the issue in all of its complexity, yet they look for a way forward for the Church. Thank you New Life! Cheers!

Amazing

It’s an awesome podcast that is well organized in its presentation and even though it’s pointed to pastors everyone can get something out of it.

Simplicity of the Gospel

This podcast has been a true blessing to me. It is a stripped-down, honest look at the simplicity of the gospel. Additionally, it has given me a new appreciation for the work of the minister. I am grateful to be a part of a church like New Life and am thankful for people who are simply pursuing God and leading us in this long obedience in the same direction.

Insightful. Informative. Invaluable.

I’m not a pastor, but as a NLC member and small group leader, I have found this so refreshing and insightful to hear from our pastors. I love their intentionality in evaluating and verbalizing every aspect of the church, instead of going through the motions to just get another Sunday out of the way. I believe they are honest and passionate about serving and teaching with genuine fear and trembling before God, taking their stewardship of God’s people very seriously (James 3:1). And I deeply appreciate their convictions and dedication to rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). I will continue to listen to these over and over.

Not JUST for Church

This podcast is helpful for anyone who's in a leadership role. Biblical principles are universal - church, finances, business, relationships, etc. The dialogue in each episode is heart felt and not scripted...it's real. If you deal with people, and we all do, this is all relatable. Short, sweet, meaty and applicable. Could easliy be titled The Essential Life (A biblical perspective)
