Current Sermon Series

Join us this Sunday, October 24, for Pastor Nate’s sermon,
I Am the Door, as we look at
John 10:1-10.

Who is Jesus? There may not be a more important question to have answered than this one, because how we receive the true answer to this question is the difference between eternal life and eternal death.

Many of Jesus’ contemporaries misunderstood him to be everything from a prophet, a merely human king, a teacher, to even a blasphemous liar who posed a danger to his people. Today, people see Jesus as everything from a prophet, a teacher, an example, a myth, to one among many ways to get to or understand the divine.

In the face of those misconceptions, Jesus speaks, “I am!”  
In that little phrase, He reveals His true identity and purpose, as the eternal God of the universe, who stepped into history to be our one and only way to salvation.

Join us this fall, as we meet Jesus once again by hearing His voice in the “I Am” statements of the Gospel of John, and come face-to-face with the God of history and our salvation.

To help you prepare, the scripture for Sunday will be:

John 10:1-10 (ESV)

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter the sheepfold by the door but climbs in by another way, that man is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. A stranger they will not follow, but they will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers.” This figure of speech Jesus used with them, but they did not understand what he was saying to them.

So Jesus again said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
