1 John

With any teaching or text it is helpful to ask the questions:

What did I learn about God?

What did I learn about man?

How can I apply this to my life this week?

Who can I talk to about what I’ve learned this week?


February 3: The Light of Christ

Pastor Andy looks at John's reason for writing this letter, and the unique authority John had to speak about Jesus. Andy then explains John's  teaching on who God is, who people are, and who Jesus is. Andy concludes his message saying that we are defined by Christ’s light and not our darkness.

February 10: Live as God's Children

Pastor Andy continues our series in 1 John, by examining how to protect ourselves from false teaching and how to live an abundant life as God’s children, who are forgiven and loved. 

February 17: Called to Love

Gregory Hyde discusses the nature of love as we continue our series through 1 John. How love shapes our relationship with God, our relationships with each other, and our view of the gospel.

February 24: Overcoming Spiritual ADD

As we continue through 1 John, Pastor Andy teaches that the more time we spend in God's presence, the more we overcome Spiritual ADD (Assurance Deficit Disorder) as it relates to Spiritual Truth, God's Perfect Love, and the Holy Spirit.

March 3: God is Life

Pastor Andy closes our series by showing how John wanted his readers to understand that Jesus is the True God, and having shown that God is Light and God is Love , the Apostle John makes a clear case that God is Life in chapter 5. Because Jesus is Life, faith in Him overcomes the World.
