Titans Clash

Check out this great video from The Gospel Coalition on Vimeo.

The video features three highly influential evangelical thinkers in a frank, hard hitting roundtable discussion: Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, and Joshua Harris. Driscoll presses Chan to discuss his recent departure as pastor of Cornerstone Church, and in so doing, lures Chan into revealing his ecclesiological  views as well. Watch this clip to get into the heads of three movers and shakers in American evangelicalism!

Thanks Matt B. for the link!

Jews for Jesus Night

Come worship with us this Friday (4/2) at Crossroads Bible Church (1670 Moorpark, San Jose, CA 95128) at 7PM for a celebration of the Passover. Jews for Jesus will be hosting Christ in the Passover in which they will teach us how Christ is present in the Old Testament rituals. I am so excited to see how Christ revealed Himself to the Ancient Hebrews!

Afterwards, Worship Ministries will be hosting a pizza party for us as we help them construct a tomb for the Easter play.
