Pastor Jarrod begins a new series walking us through the seven famous "I AM" statements Jesus made about himself in the Gospel of John. In this first message, we discover what Jesus mean when he said, "I AM the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst" (John 6:35).
This Easter we kicked off a new sermon series called Stuff Christians Believe, highlighting some of the foundational beliefs and practices of Christians throughout the centuries. On Easter Sunday we talked about how to categorize Jesus. Pop culture accepts Jesus as a good moral teacher, but in this message we show why Jesus cannot be just a good moral teacher. In an adaptation of C. S. Lewis' classic argument, we show that Jesus must be either a Liar, a Lunatic, a Legend, or the Lord. What do you do with Jesus?
Homosexuality has become an explosive and divisive issue in our society. Culture demands full acceptance and legitimization, claiming that homosexuals are born that way and have a right to live however they want. Conservative Christians are attacked as bigots and homophobes, and in response many congregations and denominations have redefined Scripture and what the Church has taught on this issue for thousands of years. But what does the Bible really say about homosexuality? And what should our response be? We’ll find out as we continue the Too Hot To Handle series.
