    Who Is Jesus? And Why Does It Matter?
    We may pass the test of confession, morality and sacrificial love, but the most important test to define a believer is "Who is Jesus?" Answering that quesetion correctly is a matter of eternal life. John is very clear that Jesus is the Christ, fully divine, yet fully human. However, this test question is not just answered intellectually, it is answered by how we live.

    Getting Away With Murder
    God’s character is loving, so the character of his children ought to be loving. But love is not something just spoken of, it is something acted out – first by God, and then by his children. Failure to love is just as harmful as taking the person’s life.

    Who’s Your Daddy?
    Sermon Passing the Test of FaithWe live in an age when it is epidemic that young people do not bear a sense of identity because they do not know who their father is. That same lack of identity can also be found in the church. BIG IDEA: As children of God we are on a journey to live a life that imitates the character of our Father.  To do less denies our lineage and brings shame on ourselves.
