We are embarking on a sermon series through the Gospel of John. While the characters are rich and the stories compelling, the book's purpose in transformational. John wrote his Gospel so that we would believe in Jesus. Trusting in Jesus is not simply a one time event. We are called to a life-surrendering, ongoing faith in the God-made flesh Jesus who offers us abundant life.

Week 32

John’s gospel has lead us to this moment when the tomb breaks open and resurrection life emerges. This Sunday we celebrated this Truth through baptism. If you weren't able to make it, watch along at 6 people publicly shared their faith in Jesus!


Our journey through John’s Gospel brings us this week to the crucifixion, death, and burial of Jesus. Follow along to Pastor Matt explain what this means for all of us!


If you didn't get a chance to see it on Sunday, check out this week of our Believe series where Pastor Eric takes us through Jesus' betrayal in John 18!

Watch along as Pastor Eric shows us what Jesus had in store for us in John 16.

WEEk 27

Jesus said in John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” The promise is that if we stay connected, "Abide," then Christ will bring about fruit in our lives. Watch along as Pastor Matt explains what it means to abide in Jesus!


Last Sunday we navigated through John 14 and discovered that we have an eternal destination (a mansion with many rooms), a clearly marked street (Jesus as the only way), and a heavenly guide (the Holy Spirit)! Watch along to learn more about Jesus' words in this chapter.


We discovered in this week’s passage that Jesus calls us to a new commandment: “…to love one another; just as I have loved you, you also are to love another." Watch Pastor Matt explain this truth to us, and show us through a unique perspective how to live out this commandment.


We have read thus far in John’s gospel that Jesus is the living water, bread of life, and the Great I AM! And then we come to this week’s passage in John 13 where Jesus got down on the floor and washed his disciples feet! Wait a minute! Jesus just strolled into Jerusalem as the King and now he’s on the floor looking like servant?! But that is why Jesus came. He came to serve. He came to wash. He came to do the dirty job so that we might have life. Watch along with this weeks sermon and learn how we can serve like Jesus does.


Jesus' motivation on earth were to be lifted up, be the light of the world and to save the world. Do we live our lives with those same motivations to lift up the name of Jesus? Follow along with Pastor Eric as he takes us through John 12:27-50.


This week we looked at a passage in John 12 where Jesus tells us after a triumphant entry into Jerusalem: if you love our life in this world you will lose it, but if you hate our life in this world, you will keep it for eternity. Follow along to hear Pastor Eric unpack this scripture and what it means for us!


This week, we turned to the twelfth chapter of John’s Gospel to find a beautiful picture of how Lazarus’ sister, Mary, responded to Jesus after her brother was raised from the dead.This grateful woman poured out the finest and most costly of perfume on the feet of Jesus. She held nothing back. Follow along with Pastor Eric has he helps unpack Mary's response to Jesus!


This week, Pastor Matt took us through the passage in John 11:1-44! Check out this week to see Jesus bring people to belief in Him through raising Lazarus from the dead.


This past Sunday we wrestled with John 10:22-42 where Jesus tells the religious crew surrounding him that he is the one who gives eternal life and no one can snatch the sheep out of his hand. What great security and hope in that simple statement. Even though there is a thief that wants to steal our hearts…Jesus tells us that no one can snatch us from his hand.


Friends, we have a real enemy who desires to kill, steal, and destroy the good things that are happening around us. But Jesus is the Good Shepherd leading us to pastures filled with good things. Let’s keep listening to His voice and following His lead!


Have you ever had a relationship where you feel like the person is wearing headphones? What about your relationship with God? You can't hear him because there is something in your ears that needs to be cleaned out. This week, Pastor Eric walked us through the last bit of John 8. Follow along to see what you might be missing!


Right off the bat, we hear Jesus’ words: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Sometimes in the midst of our culture, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the darkness that surrounds us. We live in a world that loves the darkness. But we see in John 8, that the only path to freedom and life is through belief in Jesus. Lets boldly proclaim this week, that Jesus is the source of freedom from sin, and who he sets free is free indeed!

week 15

"There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." This is absolutely life-changing news! Can you imagine? No shame, no guilt, no fear, and no condemnation! When we come to Jesus and lay our hearts before him, He stretches out over us and covers us with His love. Watch along to see Jesus interact with the woman caught in adultery found in John 8.


In John 7, Jesus tells the people around him, "if anyone thirsts let him come to me and drink." Jesus gives us an open invitation to drink from living water and trust in Him. Is their something stopping you this week from trusting in Jesus?


In John 6, Jesus tells us that He is the bread of life! Watch this weeks sermon to learn how Jesus satisfies our deepest longings!


Last Sunday, we looked at the story found in John 6:1-15 when Jesus feeds a multitude of people with the contents of a boy’s lunch basket. When we look in our own lunch baskets we find limited abilities to be a husband/wife, a parent, a friend, a neighbor, etc. But, it’s amazing what God can do when we give him what we’ve got! Like with the 5 loaves and 2 fish, God uses our small offering to do big things!


In John 5, we see Jesus show compassion and care for people who are unrepentant, uninformed, and will harm Him in the long run. Are we a people who show compassion like Jesus did even when if could hurt us? Follow along, as Pastor Matt walk us through this passage and shows us how Jesus loved others throughout the chapter.


This week, we continued in John 4, where we see Jesus heal an official's son. Follow along with Pastor Eric to learn how miracles and signs can enhance the kingdom of God, but can also can distract us from following Jesus.


Have you ever wondered why we call our Sunday morning gathering a “worship service?" We pray, sing songs, and read scripture and like to consider this our worship. But Jesus shows us that "Worship" should be much bigger than just a time and a place on Sunday morning. This idea is at the heart of what Jesus teaches a thirsty woman in John 4. Jesus told a Samaritan woman that true worship is not limited to a time and place but true worship happens in spirit and in truth!

Week 8

You know those movie quotes or witty comments in conversations that stick? Dorothy said, “There’s no place like home.” Forest Gump famously quipped, “Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates, never know what you’re gonna get.” These lines stick with us because somewhere in there they connect with what we know to be true. If there was ever a one-liner that captured the essence of what it means to be a Christian, it just might be what John the Baptist told his disciples in John 3:30. In referring to Jesus, John told his own followers, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” Watch this week of Believe to learn how we can reflect this in our own lives!


This week in our Believe Series, we interacted with one of the most familiar passages in scripture, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." -John 3:16. Watch along to see Nicodemus' story unfold in a new way.


Jesus wasn’t impressed with the big Temple complex or the ritual practices that Israel had developed over the years. All the pomp, cultural pride, and religion had caused people to place their hopes, trust, and respect in a human structure and institution, but not in God the Father. And Jesus was going to change all of that.


Have you ever been to a party and the host ran out of food? Have you ever been to a reception and the cake table was empty by the time you arrived? We turn this weekend to John chapter 2 where we find Jesus at a wedding in Cana. When the host runs out of wine, Jesus chooses, of all places, a wedding reception surrounded by friends and family to perform his first public sign/miracle.


This week in John 1, Philip invited Nathanael to “come and see” who Jesus was. Because of Philip's desire to see people know Christ, he found someone to share Him with. Is there someone in your life just waiting for the invitation to experience who Jesus is?


Pastor Eric took us through John 1:19-24 this past Sunday. Follow along and see how we can make it easier for people to experience Christ through the things we say and the ways we act.


John tells us that Jesus is the true light. But when we live in a broken culture it's easy for our eyes to grow accustomed the darkness. Don't settle for darkness, let Jesus be the light that we want to pursue.


God reveals in John 1 that there is life in His word. Jesus is a light that the darkness cannot touch! Whatever you're going through today, let this be a reminder that Jesus is a hope that we can cling to!
