No one has affected the human race over the last few thousand years more than Jesus. Napoleon said at the end of his life, "I marvel that whereas the ambitious dreams of myself, Caesar, and Alexander should have vanished into thin air, a Judean peasant named Jesus should be able to stretch his hand across the centuries and control the destinies of men and nations." So many authors and pastors try to describe who Jesus is, and often miss the mark! Should church be like a romantic comedy or an action adventure movie? To most, Jesus seems either distant or weak; the nicest man in the world, surrounded by children. This series gives us a more realistic look at who Jesus was then. One thing is for certain: Jesus is good, but not safe. Was he a Wildman?
Matthew 28:16-20 talks about the wild, crazy plan that Jesus has for us. Pastor Chris describes how Jesus gave the bold Great Commission to the disciples on a mountaintop as his final farewell. Chris applies it to us as a church, breaking down how we can fulfill the Great Commission here at North Coast.
