The book of 1 John draws the line in the sand between genuine faith in Christ and everything else. We hope that the juxtaposed picture of faith aside all else will fill the believer the with assurance of  faith, while challenging the unbeliever to consider what they know about God and how they respond to that knowledge through love and good deeds.

Sermons From series

Genuine Faith Rests

Speaker:

In the final installment of our Genuine Faith series, Pastor John O. shows how a confident relationship with God leads to confident requests from God. We can expect great things from our great God, but our prayers shouldn’t just be for us, but for our brothers and sisters as well. We have confidence that the One who died for us and intercedes for us will also protect us. When we go in the wrong direction, God will pull us back.

Genuine Faith Overcomes

Speaker:

No one overcomes the world who does not have faith in Christ. No one has life apart from Him. But all who are in Him have victory. In this addition to our Genuine Faith series, Pastor John Martyn shares how we overcome the world in Christ.

Genuine Faith Commits

Speaker:

Why does genuine faith commit to loving one another? Dhati explores what it means to commit to each other in love, and why it’s essential to our faith, using 1 John 4:7-21.

Genuine Faith Scrutinizes

Speaker:

D.A. Horton shares how genuine faith is: 1) critical in testing the spirits and discerning false teaching; 2) careful in emphasizing the incarnation; and 3) confident in the Holy Spirit’s leading. Those who have genuine faith are from God and acknowledge his word as the source of truth.

Genuine Faith: Must Manifest

Speaker:

Genuine Faith Abides

In the latest installment of our Genuine Faith series, we see what it means to abide in Christ. 1 John shows that our lives should be defined by Christ’s life, pursuing Him rather than sin.

As we continue our series, Genuine Faith, Pastor Dhati challenges our view of what it means not to “love the world” and calls us to pursue a genuine faith worth living for!

Genuine Faith Loves

Speaker:

As we continue our series, Genuine Faith, we learn that assurance of our salvation is an ongoing journey directly connected to our obedience to Jesus’ commands to love one another.

Speaker:

As we continue in 1 John, we look at the role that repentance plays in the life of someone who has genuine faith in Christ’s offer of salvation.

Genuine Faith Proclaims
