Jesus has a radical view of forgiveness. Do it every time, no matter how big the hurt, no matter how frequent the slight. He also seems to think we can't be forgiven unless we forgive.

Pastor Kyle opens up the parable of the ungrateful servant to answer these questions.

In this first sermon in our series on the Apostles' Creed, we talk about what it means to believe at all. What does it mean to have a creed and is that only for religious people? What does it really mean to believe in God? What does it look like to have faith?
