Hope Changes Your Present
We go through most of our lives thinking either of the past or the future. We hardly ever think about the present. And that causes us to miss out on the happiness, the hope, and the purpose that God wants us to have. Listen in as we learn from Titus 2:11-14 how Hope Changes Your Present.
Hope Changes Your Past
We all have something in our past we wish we could go back and undo. The guilt and the regret hang onto us like an anchor dragging us down. But this week we learn how hope changes your past. Your life and your past mistakes are gone. You have a new life. So live it, compelled by the love of Christ.
I AM the Vine
In the last week of our 'I AM' sermon series, we look at John 15, where Jesus tells us that he is the true vine, and we are the branches. And when we remain in him, he promises us that his complete love will fill us with complete joy.
I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life
"Christianity is too exclusive. How can you believe there is only one way to be saved?" We've probably all heard some form of this objection to Christianity at some point in our lives. But where does that idea really come from? And how can we respond to it? Find out in this week's sermon, based on John 14:1-14.
I AM the Good Shepherd
There are a lot of voices competing for our attention right now. These voices tell us that we need to forge our own path in life. They tell us that we're in control of what happens to us. But there's only one voice that leads to a truly full life: the voice of our Good Shepherd. Today, we're going to be encouraged by Jesus' words in John 10 to Follow the Good Shepherd.
I AM the Light of the World
There are certain things in life everyone has to have an opinion on. Perhaps the most important of these is the answer to the question: Who is Jesus? That's the question we're going to answer in this sermon, which begins a new series called I AM. In this series we'll take a look at four of Jesus' I AM statements as recorded in the Gospel of John.
