I AM THE VINE

by CLC_Staff on April 7, 2014

I am the Vine- WebIn older translations of John 15 the key word is “abide”. In the NIV and other more recent translations the key word is translated as “remain”. We want to know some basics with this because it is difficult to get around John 15:5, “apart from me you can do nothing”. Learn what it means to remain in Jesus. He is the vine, we are the branches.

Scripture Reference: John 15

I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE

by CLC_Staff on March 31, 2014

I am the Resurrection - WebScripture References: John 14: 1-10

This passage includes one of the most controversial statements in the Bible, at least to people outside of the church: “I am the Way the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This verse is connecting to the Old Testament. We will look at those verses to uncover a bit more about what Jesus meant. More troubling to people today is the thought that there even exists “The Way”, “The Truth”, “The Life”.

So how do we speak to what we believe into a skeptical and hostile modern world view? Join us this Sunday to find out.

I AM THE GOOD SHEPHERD

by CLC_Staff on March 25, 2014

I am the Good Shepherd - Web2This week we will focus on 2 ideas: the shepherd lays down his life for the sheep and the sheep hear his voice. This is a very often overlooked statement and a marker of a Christian… Do we hear the voice of the shepherd? If not, as Christians we need to seriously grapple with Jesus here. He said, “the sheep listen to his (the shepherd) voice”.

Scripture Reference: John 10: 1-20

I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

by CLC_Staff on March 17, 2014

I am the Light of the World - WebWeek 2 of our I Am Series – There are lots of theories about Jesus. There are lots of theories about who people think that Jesus thought He was. It seems pretty clear in this passage that Jesus harbored no doubts about this. I want people to interact with who Jesus says He is. He is the Light of the World! Many others claim to illuminate and guide in this world. I wish to push back with these thoughts and claims and put Jesus again forward as the Light.

Scripture Passage: John 8:12 and John 9

RIGHTEOUSNESS REVEALED

February 11, 2014

The idea of righteousness changes from the Old to New Testament. In Romans Paul explains a little more about the gospel and the new righteousness, or new path to righteousness, i.e. faith, as opposed to keeping the law perfectly.
