Efrem Smith Preaches 'Uncomfortable' Message on Christians Marginalizing the Marginalized, Wanting Success Without Suffering Exponential West Conference Speaker Asks Leaders to Rethink Evangelism Efrem Smith, preacher, author and urban ministry advocate, delivered a challenging, uncomfortable and anointed message about evangelism, according to some of the thousands who attended or tuned in via a live webcast to the Exponential West Conference at Saddleback Church on Tuesday. Smith, president and CEO of World Impact and author of The Post-Black and Post-White Church, preached a message titled "Rethinking Evangelism Through the Suffering," making the case that the atrocities and painful conditions people experience today require a refocused approached to doing outreach. He began by reading to the thousands in person and likely thousands more watching online, the description of the multi-ethnic and multi-lingual kingdom of God described in Revelation 7, specifically verses 9-17.

So I was feeling overwhelmed with matters of the heart and life itself when I took out my bible and some notes I had taken at Saddleback Church this past Sunday. God is so amazing. He always knows what's ahead and what u will need to get through it. Notes... It is ur job to ask, it is not ur job to worry about how God is going to do it! "U do not have, because u do not ask God." James 4:2b "Since God did not spare even his own Son but gave Him up for us all, won't He who gave us Christ, also give us everything else we need?" Romans 8:32 Notes... Stop comparing and enjoy what I have right now. My happiness should no be based on my happenings! "Obey God and be at peace with Him; this is the way to happiness." Job 22:21 Notes... Talk to God about everything. If it's not worth praying about, it's not worth worrying about. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present ur requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will .. ...

Part II of our exclusive interview Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Southern California. Rick talks about the expansion of his ministry abroad, th...
There is coming a one world religion promises an end to war, and world peace because it will merge all the world’s religions. One of the tenets of the coming one world religion is that all religions and religious paths lead to God as long as you are sincere. Things are clearly headed towards a "unification" of all faiths as is outlined in the scriptures regarding the last days. And many who now (only) seek "peace on earth" at the expense of having a false peace with God will and are "joining" in this movement. These are from articles that show this effort to be a coming reality.                 "Last month at the Global Peace Forum at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, which featured Rick Warren and special guest, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, Rick Warren spoke about his global P.E.A.C.E. Plan and Tony Blair spoke about the inter-faith Tony Blair Foundation. Tony Blair is preparing to launch a “faith offensive” across the United States over the next year, after building up ...
Help the Helpless by Rick Warren When you help the poor and the needy, the Bible says it's like loaning money to God. And God says, "I'm watching to see if you are a blessing to other people. If you are, I will bless you." Psalm 41 says this, "God blesses those who are kind to the poor and helpless. He helps them out of their own troubles. He protects them and keeps them alive; he publicly honors them and destroys the power of their enemies." (Psalm 41:1-2 TLB) If you want God's blessing in your life, start looking for other people less fortunate than you to help. God says if you do that he will pour out his blessing on you. This is a principle I learned a long time ago: the more I help people who are less fortunate, the more God blesses my life. We lived out this principle at Saddleback Church a few years ago when we decided the church would feed every homeless person in Orange County three meals a day for 40 days. I want to challenge you today - this is your action point - donate a bag of groceries to a ...
It was dubbed that by Dan Savage, in honor of Saddleback Church, headed by Rick Warren.
God Is Not Ashamed of You by Rick Warren “Jesus and the people he makes holy all belong to the same family. That is why he isn’t ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters.” (Hebrews 2:11 CEV) Did you know that Jesus calls you his sister or his brother? That’s a pretty amazing thing. Jesus isn’t ashamed to call you his brother or sister, no matter how messed up your life is, because you belong to God’s family. As a member of the family of God, your sin doesn’t define you anymore. It’s the difference between Alcoholics Anonymous and Celebrate Recovery. Alcoholics Anonymous is a very good program. But I think Celebrate Recovery, which was started at Saddleback Church, is a whole lot better for a number of reasons. Most importantly, it’s Christ-centered, so it stresses that your sin does not define you. If you were to go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, you would stand up and say, “Hi, my name is Rick, and I’m an alcoholic,” and you would say it for the rest of your life. You le ...

Thank you all for the prayers, calls, texts, and posts! Jeff and the boys feel truly blessed by your care and support!

A reception will follow immediately after the service on the Saddleback campus. In lieu of flowers a memorial fund is being set up at Wells Fargo Bank in the name of "The Pirtle Children."
As this weekend draws to a close, I just need to send a few shout outs to some friends who make my life so rich: To all the people of AKA Angels, especially Toni Tutt, thank you. Too many others to name and fear of leaving someone out so just know my heart is so full to have reconnected with all of you. All the photos only tell half the story of the paths we took to be where we are today. One message is clear - in the end, we are all one. Jill Wood, our dinner and conversation and surroundings could not have been more perfect. The commitment we share towards this friendship took several steps forward. Thank you. LOVE my GGW partner! And to my TLC family, we began the day sharing in communion. Then 7 of us went to Saddleback Church to hear Nick Vujicic speak and got our socks blessed off! To God goes the glory. Thank you everyone. I love you all so much!
How to Stand Against Popular Opinion In 1979 I was finishing up seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, and I felt like God was calling me to Southern California to start Saddleback Church. So I phoned a guy that I respected a lot and told him what I thought God wanted me to do. You know what he told me? “Rick, that’s the dumbest idea I ever heard. You go out to California, and you’ll never be heard from again. It’s not going to happen.” He poured cold water all over my dream! Any time you get serious about using your life the way God wants you to use it, there are going to be people who oppose it. You’re going to have friends and maybe even family members who oppose you, because Satan is going to throw everything he can at you to keep you from fulfilling your calling. One reason why so few people actually fulfill God’s calling is because they are unwilling to go against popular opinion. If you want to follow God’s calling on your life, you must be willing to reject negative advice, no matter who i ...

Great message from Nick Vujicic at Saddleback Church. We were blessed in a major way.

Saddleback Church's "Faith Outreach Pastor" Abraham Meulenberg, teaches the concept of "Kingdom Circles" that teaches that members of any religion can be saved without professing Jesus Christ as the Son of God. Wicked!
Beautiful and inspiring message from Nick Vujicic today. @ Saddleback Church
Couldn't be in Cali without going to Sunday Night service Church!
The Catholic Church alone was started by Jesus Christ in 33 A.D. and can trace her line of popes back 2000 years. History shows that all other churches were founded by different men throughout history who either broke away from the Catholic Church or just invented their own. The Coptic Church broke away from the Catholic Church in the 5th century while the Orthodox Church broke away in 1054AD. Martin Luther broke away in 1517AD. The Anglican church began in 1534 with King Henry VIII. The Presbyterian Church began in 1560 by John Knox. The Congregational church started in 1582 by Robert Brown. The Episcopalian church is an offshoot of the Anglican Church and was started by Samuel Seabury. The "Baptists" were started by John Smyth in 1606. The Methodist Church began in 1774 with John and Charles Wesley. Theophilus Lindley started the Unitarian Universalists 1774. "Mormons" (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), was invented by Joseph Smith in 1829. The Church of Christ, and its offshoots ...
A little bit of father-daughter bonding at the OC Photo Summit on site at Saddleback Church. The primary purpose was to hear Jasmine Star speak, but there were several breakout sessions for photographers. We had a great time.

Wondering what I've been up to?

New insights that Rick Warren has with his wife now having cancer and him having "wealth" from the book sales. This is an absolutely incredible short interview with Rick Warren , "Purpose Driven Life " author and pastor of Saddleback Church in California. In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said: "People ask me, What is the purpose of life?" And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body--but not the end of me. I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act - the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity. We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn't going to make sense. Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, you're just coming out of one, or you're getting ready ...
Let me share you this. After the Kid's Conference that we attended last Saturday, May 03,2014 courtesy of the Saddleback Church Kid's Ministry. We felt God has mandated us the responsibility to continue equipping the leaders and teachers to shepherd those who have accepted Jesus. Please help us pray for more determined Teachers who will care and shepherd their flock. This I pray in Your Mighty Name, O Jesus. Amen.
Looking forward to speaking at Saddleback Church this weekends. Saturday 4pm and 6pm and Sunday 9am and 11am. Gonna be packed, get there early. Bring friends who don't really go to church, could be a cool opportunity to get them some encouragement.
Attending the 9 a.m. service at Saddleback Church Los Angeles tomorrow with Tim Vizzi. Want to come??
