Sunday Worship Series

Sunday, April 7. 1 John 1:1 – 2:3. Walking in the Light of God. Light represents that which is good, pure, true, holy, and reliable. Darkness represents that which is sinful and evil. God' is "light" and in Him there is no darkness at all. Those who know God, walk with Him, are of the light and walk in the light. Jesus said, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. Just what all this means will be the focus of this message.
 

Sunday, April 14. 1 John 3:1-7. And that is what we Are. As believers, our sense of worth is based on the fact that God loves us and calls us His children. We are His children now, not just sometime in the distant future. Knowing that we are His children motivates us to live as Jesus did. The Christian life is a process of living more and more like Christ. This process will not be complete until we see Christ face to face.

Sunday, April 21. 1 John 3:16-24 & 1 John 4:7-21. Loving Like the Savior. Real love is not merely a feeling; it shows itself in action. It produces selfless, sacrificial living – giving of oneself for others, serving others with no thought of anything in return. This involves putting others first, just as Jesus did. How clearly do your actions say that you truly love others?
 

Sunday, April 28. 1 John 4:1-6. Don’t Believe Everything You Hear. We are not to believe everyone who claims to speak for Christ. We are to put what they say to the test to see if their message is truly from the Lord. How do we do that. We check to see if their words match with what God says in the Bible. Other tests include their commitment to the body of believers (2:9), their lifestyles (3:23-24), and the fruit of their ministries (4:6). But the most important test of all, says John, is what they believe and say about Jesus. Do they teach that Jesus is fully God and fully man? Our world is filled with voices claiming to speak for God. Put them to the test to see if they are indeed speaking God's truth.

Sunday, May 5. 1 John 5:1-11. We are Overcomers. We can draw strength and encouragement from Scripture, knowing that the ultimate, eternal victory has already been accomplished in Jesus. The victory is won—past tense—through our union with Christ and our identification with Him. But we continue to overcome this world in our daily life experiences by walking in faith in Jesus Christ, trusting in “the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” to be with us and carry us through all that may come our way. We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

Sunday, May 12. 1 John 5:13-21. Beyond A Shadow of Doubt. John tells us that we can be absolutely certain of our salvation. So many who identify as Christians live in uncertainty. Most often this is because they fail to put all their hope and faith in Jesus. While they believe that Jesus died for them, they also treat the cross as a plus sign by believing that they must still be "good enough" to get into heaven. In order to be certain of our salvation beyond a shadow of doubt, we must trust in Christ, crucified and risen from the dead, and Him alone.

Sunday, May 19, Pentecost Sunday. Acts 2:1-21. A Day of Celebration. Most Christians could not imagine having a year go by without celebrating the holidays of Christmas and Easter. It is understood by all Christians, no matter how long or short their relationship with God and the church has been, that no Christian calendar is complete without the observance of these two events. However, there is a third holiday, a third observance, a third sacred event that is just as central to our understanding of what it means to be a Christian and what it means to belong to the church -- Pentecost. Pentecost was a great celebration for the Jews and is a day of great celebration for all NT believers. We'll dig into why this is true as we celebrate this day, the birthday of the Church, together.

Sunday, May 26. Acts 2:14a, 22-36, 2 Corinthians 13:14. Behold Your God. We often gloss over the doctrine of the Trinity saying that it is simply too difficult to understand. But we should not do so. The truth is that without the doctrine of the Trinity there would be no salvation. Without the Triune God there would be no prayer, there would be no worship, there would be no love, no joy, no holiness in our lives. The Trinity is not an appendix to the body of Christian doctrine; it is the pulsing heart of the Christian gospel. On this Trinity Sunday, we will dig into just why this is true.
