FILTER YOUR THOUGHTS

FILTER YOUR THOUGHTS

I often find myself saying to the Isla Vista Church family: Not all your thoughts are your own thoughts. For some people this is new information; for others, it serves as a reminder that the battle is real and the enemy is a liar. Jesus said clearly in John... read more

HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS?

No amount of Facebook friends, Instagram followers, or tweets on Twitter can heal the soul or validate our success in life. No matter how many cool hash tags you have, or how many likes you get, social media can not fulfill you nor give you the approval you are... read more
