April 23 - June 04, 2017

No one has ever come close to the influence and impact Jesus made and is still making today. No one has been studied more, talked about more, even ridiculed more than Jesus. And yet, when it comes to answering the question, “Who is Jesus,” you’ll get all sorts of competing thoughts and answers and ideas. In this series, we’ll answer the question, “Who is Jesus,” not based upon what WE think, but based on Jesus in His Own Words. Seven weeks, Seven I AM Statements Jesus made in the book of John, will give you fresh perspective and a deeper understanding of Who Jesus is and how KNOWING HIM changes everything.

Week 7: I Am the Vine

4 words expressing 2 powerful ideas. There is power in and through I Am. Even the name is power. That power emanates from one source, much as a vine supplies branches. As branches are pruned more strength from the vine remains. Abiding in the vine is strength.

Week 6: I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life

In John 14:6, Jesus unequivocally states, with authority and no misunderstanding, that He is the only way to get to God and Heaven. What gives Him the audaciousness to make such a claim that can be so divisive in our culture?

Week 5: I AM the Resurrection and the Life

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”

Week 4: I AM the Gate

In this message, Pastor Chad uses Jesus’ word in John 10 to challenge men to embrace the high call of leadership and sacrifice that God has placed upon them.

Week 3: I AM the Good Shepherd

Two times in seven, Jesus uses the analogy of shepherd and sheep when defining himself. First, He declared, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.” And in defining Himself as Shepherd, He is also defining us as sheep.

Week 2: I AM the Light Of The World

When Jesus spoke again to the people, He said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

Week 1: I AM the Bread of Life

In John 6, Jesus declares, “I am the Bread of Life.” What does it mean? And why does it matter to us today?
