1st John Series • 3. How Do We Know? – 1st John 2:3-11 (January 17, 2021) Elder Bryce continues teaching how we are to find joy in our lives even though the whole world lies in wickedness. Today’s message shows the way that we know we are chosen in Christ is when we live like Christ. In keeping Christ’s commandment to love, we show that the love of God is in us. This assures us that we were chosen by God in the covenant of election. In knowing we have this eternal life, we have true joy.

1st John Series • 2. The First Step to Finding Joy. 1/10/21 (1st John 1:4-2:2) John told his readers that his purpose for writing to them is so that they could live a joyful life even though the whole world lies in wickedness. In this message, Elder Bryce shows us that John faithfully tells us how Jesus designed for us to find that joy. In order to have a joyful walk with God from day to day we must see sin as God sees sin. We must repent of it and walk more like Jesus.

1st John Series • Two Things We Know (January 3, 2021) /1st John 5:19/ Elder Lowrance preaches a New Year’s message from several passages in 1st John. He focuses on one of the final verses where we see that there are two things “we know.” We know that we are “of God” and that “the whole world lieth in wickedness.” In this introductory sermon to 1st John, Elder Bryce charges us to understand these two things and to have the resolution to live the abundant, joyful life that God intended for us.
