Special Message: How to Be a World Changer

In this Sunday morning message, Pastor Greg Laurie takes a look at men and women of faith, whose lives are recorded in Hebrews 11. These heroes of the faith overcame adverse circumstances through faith, and we’ll learn what we can do when we exercise bold faith in our world.

Take a listen and learn “How to Be a World Changer.”


  • It was said of the First Century church that they “turned their world upside down.” 
  • We need genuine World Changers today. 
  • The people in Hebrews 11 were not perfect. 
  • They are not in the Heroes Hall of Faith because they were great people; they are there because they had faith in a great God! 
  • These winners didn’t always collect medals . . . sometimes they collected scars.
  • They were looked at for what they became, not what they were.
  • Read: Hebrews 11:1

1. World Changers have an active—not a passive—faith.

  • The more you use your faith, the more faith you have.
  • Faith means doing things!
  • Praying. Staying. Keeping.

2. World Changers do things with their faith.

  • A faith with no works is a faith that does not work! 

3. The faith we need as a World Changer grows stronger through testing.

4. Where do you get faith?

  • By hearing and obeying God’s Word.

5. Faith can make the difference between something happening or not happening. 

  • It is impossible to please God without faith. 
  • God is not limited by your circumstances; He is limited by your unbelief.
  • Read: Hebrews 11:33–35

6. World Changers are indestructible until God is done with them.

  • We will never know, this side of Heaven, the significant role angels have played.

7. World Changers are never alone.

  • God will always grade temptation to the fiber of our lives.
  • You are not alone in life!

8. World Changers apply their faith and pray!

  • We must remember that all the heroes of faith were just like us!

9. Even World Changers get depressed at times.

  • God made these believers strong in battle, not strong before battle.
  • The first group of World Changers glorified God through escaping.
  • The second group of World Changers glorified God by enduring.
  • Read: Hebrews 11:35–39

10. World Changers are often not appreciated and are instead persecuted.

11. World Changers have a reward waiting that will make it all worth it!

  • God will restore what you have lost as well.


  • Jude 1:20–21

Fact-Checking Your Lifestyle – Part A

In this age of information overload and misinformation, it's difficult to know which sources to trust-especially in a crisis. Fact-checking is common as we try to prove and disprove reports and then decide what to believe.

In this series, Skip Heitzig explores the heroes of faith in Hebrews 11 so we can learn from and follow their example. It's time to fact-check your fear with faith.
