So That You May Know
1 John 5:1-21
David Morelli

Shaky faith happens and that’s okay. What matters is what you do when you experience it.

Living Proof
1 John 4:11-21
Lyndon Plett

According to the Apostle John, one of the ways we know that we live in God, and he lives in us is that he has given us his Spirit. For those of us that like things to be tangible, this might leave us asking numerous questions, not the least of which is "So What?!".  How does the fact that God has given us his Holy Spirit affect my everyday existence as I step into 2024?

This is Love
1 John 4:7-10
David Morelli

As humans, we will look for what we long for; it’s part of who we are and how we live. But what if this season we stopped looking at the people and places we normally do and started looking at what happened at the first Christmas? We’d find what we’ve been looking for all along: a love that will last and we can never lose.

Test the Spirits
1 John 4:1-6
Nathan Archer

John assumes a world where the power and presence of God is tangibly at work. By contrast, much of our world today feels spiritually flat. How might we participate in the work of the Spirit? For John, the answer lies in the gift of discernment.

Hearts at Rest
1 John 3:19-23
David Morelli

Both our external and internal worlds can leave us feeling unsettled and like we are on shaky ground. With this going on in us and around us, 1 John gives us a pathway to experience a heart at rest.

Love and Generosity
1 John 3:11-18
David Morelli

The need to consume and the drive to accumulate more is a reality each and every one of us encounters daily and experiences personally. Jesus knows this and yet he invites us into something greater: a lifestyle of generous love.

See What Great Love
1 John 2:28-3:10
Nathan Archer

Our world is infatuated with identity. It dominates our political conversations, our relational dynamics, and our personal wrestling. It's also one of Jesus' highest priorities: giving us a new identity.

The Last Hour
1 John 2:18-27
David Morelli

We are living in what John calls ‘the last hour’, a time marked by what is good and
beautiful but also what is opposed to that. How do you live in a time like this? In this
next teaching from 1 John, we’ll find that has to do with the person, presence, and
activity of the Spirit who gives us what we need to thrive in the last hour.

Do Not Love The World
I John 2:15-17
Nathan Archer

If we want to both experience and display the love of God, we must renounce the world. How do we do that? Hear the wisdom of 1 John 2:15-17 for our day.

Let Me Clarify
1 John 2:12-14

Lyndon Plett

As a first hand witness of the life and teaching of Jesus, John doesn't mince words. Some of what he writes could be a little overwhelming and intimidating for his readers, especially for those who are sincerely seeking to be faithful to Jesus and to John's message. In 1 John 2:12-14 John reassures the faithful..."Before I go any further, let's make sure we get a few things straight!"

I John 2:7-11

David Morelli

It’s an inescapable reality right now: there is so much hate and darkness in the world right now. It’s everywhere we look. The question is: how does the community of Jesus called the church live in world like this? In this next teaching from our series in 1 John we’ll see the answer is: love one another.

The Way of Obedience
I John 2:3-6

David Morelli

Obedience is a word that comes with a lot of baggage, especially in a culture that adheres to the belief that the best life comes when there’s no one telling me what to do. In this teaching from 1 John, we’re going to unpack the tension we feel with this and explore the idea that maybe, just maybe, doing what Jesus says is a pathway to loving him more and a way to find the rest we long for.

The Beginning
I John 1:1-4

David Morelli

Within a world of deep division, increasing isolation, and growing uncertainty about the future lives the church;  God’s people, the community of faith, hope, and love who follow Jesus and live by his ways. But what happens when fractures are forming, and faith is getting shaky among God’s people? You go back to the beginning and the one who is the living heartbeat of the church: Jesus.
