Confident Faith #14: The Testimony Concerning Jesus

John identifies multiple witnesses that provide their testimony concerning Jesus the Christ, the Son of God. We look at WHO provides the testimony, WHAT the testimony is, and WHY the testimony is important.

Confident Faith #13: The “Born” Identity

In this paragraph John offers three clues describing those who have been born of God. Those who have been born of God believe that Jesus is the Christ, love the children of God, and overcome the world.

Confident Faith #12: With Love there is No Fear

We can have confidence of our salvation because we have been given the Holy Spirit. As a result we see the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, the first being love. And when we have the love of God there is no fear or eternal judgment.

Confident Faith #11: God is Love!

The truth that “God is love” is a life-changer. To know how that love was shown through God sending His only Son to die for our sins affects everything about our lives. The more we know the Father the better we can love one another.

Confident Faith #10: Don’t Believe Everything

Don’t believe everything you see, hear or read. This is John’s warning in 1 John 4:1-6. Satan works hard to deceive Christians to get them off track in their faith. Remember, Jesus is God and everything should be tested according to the Word of God.

Confident Faith #8: Living Out the Faith

God desires for His children to walk consistently with who they are. When we sin we are living like we are not His children. The way we show that we love God is by loving our brothers and sisters. Love is shown when we meet needs with our generosity.

Confident Faith #7: Living in Light of His Appearing

One of the reasons we have such a hard time loving others is because we haven’t really connected with how deeply God loves us . Imagine how much better life would be if we lived loved by God.

Confident Faith #6: Beware of Antichrists!

Beware of the antichrists in our world! There are many who say they they believe in God but deny Jesus Christ. We must remain committed to the Word of God and submitted to the Spirit of God if we want to maintain a confident faith.

Confident Faith #3: Knowing That You Know Him

The older I get the more I love the metaphor of walking to describe the Christian life. Walking is not as spectacular or fast as running, leaping, or flying, but it is a steady, sure movement in one direction. The same is true in living for Jesus Christ.

Confident Faith #2: True Confessions

How hard is it for you to admit your sin? Do you tend to deny or ignore your sin? Do you minimize it or rationalize it? Or Do you confess it? Confessing sin is one of the greatest evidences of those who are walking in the light.

Confident Faith #1: The Real Jesus

John testifies to the truth of the incarnation of Jesus Christ. If you deny the incarnation of Jesus Christ, then the cross loses its significance. If Jesus wasn’t a man, he couldn’t be our substitute and die in our place.

Let’s Talk About Baptism

Jesus commanded for His followers to be baptized therefore it is a critical part of the life of every believer. In Acts 8 we see a story of a man from Africa who trusted in Jesus and then immediately wanted to be baptized.

Easter 2016

May the truth of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ fill our hearts with living hope and ignite our passion to love and serve Jesus for the rest of our eternal life.

Deeper #12: Deeper Into Love

Jesus tells his followers to love each other the way he loves us. In order to love others like Jesus, we must believe and live out of the depth of God’s love for us. It is only then that love flows freely.

Deeper #11: Going Deeper in our Unity

Throughout the Scripture we see that God takes his people’s unity very seriously. In Phil 2:1-4 we see why we should pursue unity and we see how to do it. As our church becomes more diverse we will need to carefully pursue unity for God’s glory.

Deeper #10: Deeper Community – The Church as a Family

Another picture the New Testament uses of the church is that of a family. This message explores some of the similarities and differences between the church and families and considers some of the practical implications of viewing the church as a family.

Deeper #9: The Building, Body and Bride of Christ

If we want to go deeper in our relationship with Jesus then we will value what he values and love what he loves. Jesus highly values and deeply loves his church. This truth should not only raise our value for but also deepen our commitment to the church.

Deeper #7: Deeply Committed to His Church

While our relationship with Jesus Christ is personal, God never intends for it to be private. We are called not only to be connected to his Church but also to be committed. We are not called simply to be an attenders but members.

Deeper #6: Deeper Through Serving

If we want to go deeper in our relationship with Jesus Christ, then we need to serve as Jesus served. For Jesus tells us that serving is the key to true greatness and happiness.

Deeper #5: Deeply Rooted in Prayer

If we want to go deeper in our relationship with Christ, we need to pray more than we do. W.H. Griffith Thomas once said, “It is only through a strong prayer life that we find God’s presence real, His power felt, His will clear, and His service easy.”

Deeper #4: Deep Worship

What is worship and how can we deepen our relationship with God through true spiritual worship? The heartbeat of white-hot worship is not our ministry for God, but rather our ministry to God as we seek to bless the Lord with all that we are.

Deeper #3: Deeply Rooted in His Word

How can we turn our knowledge about God into knowledge of God? By taking the truths we learn about God, meditating on them and turning them into praise and worship to God. We will work through this process using Colossians 1:15-20 as an example.

Deeper #1: Deeply Rooted in Jesus Christ

Becoming a fully devoted follower of Christ involves going deeper. We cannot afford to live shallow lives as Christians. In order to be healthy, growing and strong, we must become deeply rooted in Christ.

An overview of the storyline of the entire Bible, using a couple of silly, weird pictures to help remember it.

Explore God #6: Is the Bible Reliable?
