Are Our Headlights Out? (July 26, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 10:16 PM

What should we believe about God’s Word? What does God’s Word tell us about itself? How should we approach it if people have used God’s Word to hurt us? Those are questions we turn to as we dig into the next subject of “Pieces of Faith:” God’s Word.

Grace from Fall (July 19, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 7:00 PM

Do I see myself as I am? Do I see how God sees me? Tonight on Steadfast, we look at those important questions and how God turns the “Fall from Grace” on its head.

God Keeps the Water Running (July 12, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 7:00 PM

Why did God create me? How does understanding who God is help us to better understand His love for us? As we begin a new series looking at core beliefs the Bible teaches, we start at the one who starts everything: God. (If you’re interested, we’re working our way through the Little Hills/FaithTree statement of faith — you can check that out and then we’ll cover a portion of it each week by looking at what the Bible teaches on that subject.)

Will I Pass the Final Exam? (July 5, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 7:00 PM

Jesus tells us He will return and judge the world. What does that really mean? Should we be afraid? As we wrap up “the Future is Here,” these are the questions I delve into.

Church's Got Talent (June 28, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 9:03 PM

What does waiting for Jesus’s return look like? Are we just trying to “make it through” until the end? This week we turn to Matthew 25:14-30, looking at the “Parable of the Talents” and what it says to us about what God calls us to do with our lives right now. (Tonight’s live stream was interesting to say the least — part of the system crashed midway through the livestream. The stream kept going, but it was definitely stressful! 😬)

Announcing FaithTree Grow

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 10:17 PM

20 Years ago today, FaithTree.com launched as the world’s first (and, I think, still only) customizable Christian portal. 🎉 At the time, I didn’t really think about what it would be like if I were still developing it two decades later, but here we are. The original concept for FaithTree was modeled after classic portal sites such as My Yahoo and My Netscape. Over time, it also became a full fledge RSS news feed reader and, later, spun into an outreach ministry, FaithTree Christian Fellowship.

20 years is too big of deal to let go by without a major celebration, don’t you think?

This month I’ve been adding new features to celebrate this special milestone, starting a few weeks ago with the all new FaithTree WeatherDesk, with free forecasts all around the world and the unique “Weather in the Bible” feature that shows you a verse that ties into your current weather.

I have a few more planned in the coming days of celebration, but one I cannot wait to share with you launches RIGHT NOW on the anniversary day itself: FaithTree Grow.

FaithTree Grow brings together sermons, devotionals and articles from friends of FaithTree (including Bible Baptist Church, Little Hills Church and Harvester Christian Church) alongside FaithTree’s Bible search tool that lets you explore God’s Word and find messages related to the passages you look up. I hope you take a look and that this new feature blesses you as you explore how God is speaking through believers around our community!

The Midnight Oil (June 21, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:35 PM

What makes us foolish vs. wise in God’s eyes? That’s the question of the night as we dig into Matthew 25:1-13 (The Wise and Foolish Virgins). Got a few minutes? Please join me. :-)

When Do I Need to Start Loving Cubs Fans? (June 14, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 9:24 PM

The Weak Get Going? (June 7, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 8:53 PM

Persecution is a difficult topic to preach on. I don’t want to be persecuted, so saying, “That’s something God said would happen,” isn’t exactly a message I want to hear. But, when we understand how God works and what He calls us to do, at least the difficulties we face start to make more sense.

Phishers of Men (May 31, 2021)

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 6:28 PM

As we continue our series “the Future is Here,” looking at the “Little Apocalypse” of Matthew 24-25, we dig into Jesus’s warnings about those who will lead many astray — false Messiahs and false prophets. Today, we have false pastors, politicians and more who often fit into those roles. Who are we prone to listening to whom we should not?
