God Is Love – 1 John 4:1-21

Christians are called to both a true confession of faith, that Jesus is God who came in the flesh, and to love. We need not fear God's judgment because God is love. God demonstrated his love by sending his Son into the world, so that by his atoning death our sins might be forgiven and that we might have life. Faith then is both in what we confess and in what we do, and it is only possible because of what Christ has said and what Christ has done.

Two Kinds of Righteousness – 1 John 3:11-24

This week, as we look at the remainder of 1 John, chapter 3, we see clearly that God loves us and we are to love one another. We are called to love others as Jesus has loved us. But this is a pretty tall order. Where do we get the power to do that? Come hear about two kinds of righteousness that flow from the same place - the cross.

Children of Hope – 1 John 2:28-3:10

This week, as we get back into the book of 1 John, we hear the Apostle sharing some very hope-filled words and also some very troubling words. The question then, is who are these words for? Should I be comforted by what John writes or should I be afflicted by his words? Join us as we see what it means to be children of hope!

Hold Fast! Stay True! —- 1 John 2:15-27

John tells us that the last hour is upon us (1 John 2:18). There are many forces working against the Gospel that would entice Christians away from the faith: the love of the world and false teaching. John calls Christians to hold fast to Christ and stay true to the Word. But this does not come of our own strength or will, it is simply by abiding in Christ, as Christ holds us fast and enables us to stay true!

It Is Finished! Now What? – 1 John 2:1-14
Sermons

It Is Finished! Now What? – 1 John 2:1-14

This Sunday, as we get into the 2nd chapter of 1 John, we begin to look at what happens once our sins are forgiven through Christ. At that point, once we have been cleansed of all our unrighteousness, is it up to us and our power to keep ourselves clean? Or, is there another, greater power available to us? Are the rest of the words in 1 John meant to make us question our faith, or give us assurance? Come hear what John has to say to us, the Beloved.

The Life and Light of Christ – 1 John 1:1-10

This Sunday we begin a new series in the book of 1 John. Throughout this letter, we will see that John is correcting heretical teaching that has worked its way into the Church. In the first chapter, we will see him address a wrong view of who Jesus is and a wrong view of who we are. And we will see that his teaching is just as applicable for us as it was in the day he wrote it. Come hear about both the life and light of Christ.
