Our Messages

1 John 4:12-21

Today, as John continues to focus on abiding in God and God abiding in us, he speaks primarily about our love for one another. As we will see, if we don’t love our brother, it is impossible to love God.

CANcelled

Jesus is an example of ultimate cancel culture. His message didn't fit in their idea of who God was and what he wanted and they tried to cancel him. But he provided a way that we CAN be saved, CAN be healed, and CAN spread the good news!

1 John 4:1-11

John clarifies what the Antichrist is and encourages us in the love of God. He reminds us of the proof of that love is His only Son's appearance here on the earth. John continues to exhort us to love one another.

1 John 3:11-24

There are some key differences between children of the devil and children of God. Children of God have stepped out of death and into life whereas children of the Devil remain in death. Children of God love whereas the children of the devil hate. In addition, children of God abide in the Father, and the Father abides in them. As a result of this, we are different, and how we live our lives should be a reflection of this. Our lives should be characterized by love. And not just saying we love, but there should be actual evidence of our love in our deeds and actions.

1 John 3:1-10

When you are born again, you have the right to say you are a child of God. This is more than an honorary title. It means we have been changed, and as such, we should live differently. No one who is born of God makes a practice of sinning.

1 John 2:15-29

John continues encouraging us in our devotion to the kingdom of God because the world is not permanent. He explains how to identify the "antichrist," reminding us of the promise of eternal life. We are to "abide in Him" in order to discern the truth.

1 John 2:1-14

As we study the first part of chapter 2, John is addressing something that all Christians need to understand. It is something that is just as relevant to us as it was to these believers 1900 years ago. Christians should not sin. We are to walk in the light and we are to obedient to Him.

1 John 1:1-10

John is writing a group of believers that have been assaulted with false teachings of claims contradicting the deity or humanity of Jesus. In addition some were claiming that they were not sinners or that sin didn't matter. John begins refuting these claims in this first chapter.

True Love, A Fruit of the Spirit

The world's idea of love is not the same as God's requirements. We can't produce it on our own. We need the Holy Spirit. The fruit produced is eternal and effective.

His Way, My Way

All too often, we limit who God is by our experiences. We think that God will be like our natural father or we think God behave like what we see on TV or in the movies. We limit what we think God can do by what “we” think is possible. But, His ways are not our ways. He may well, and often does, do things in ways that are totally different to how we would have or would like them done.

Supernatural

Today, particularly in the U.S., we are ruled by science. In other words, if it can't be sensed, understood, and explained by our natural senses, we are skeptical, or even downright negative towards it. However, we serve God who is in the business of the supernatural. If we want to see God move in spectacular ways, we have to be open to the supernatural working of God.

Eyes Wide Forward

As we enter the new year, resolutions are on everyone’s mind. We are all focused on a new future. Turns out, Christianity is always looking towards the future. We let go of our past because it has already been paid for. We look towards the future, to who we are in Christ, and not who we were.
