John 3:1-21 Born-again Christians

We come now in our study to one of the most familiar passages in the Scripture in the third chapter of John. Hear now the inerrant, infallible word of God:

“Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews; this man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, ‘Rabbi, we know that You have come from...

Apostles' Creed

John 3:1-16 I believe in the Life Everlasting

If you have your Bibles, I'd invite you to turn with me to John, chapter three. We've come to our final lesson in our study of the Apostles’ Creed, and we will look at the final clause, “I believe in the life everlasting.” We want to look at what the Bible calls eternal life and ask ourselves, what do we...

Found: When Ordinary People Meet Jesus

Let me begin by thanking you again for coming to our evening service, especially if you are here at the invitation of a friend.  We’re so very glad that you are here.  In the pockets in the pews in front of you, you will find copies of the Bible.  If you would, please take one in your hands and turn with me to page 887 to John’s gospel...

First, we see earthly questions. And the first question comes from a Pharisee named Nicodemus. Now most of us are probably more familiar with Nicodemus' background than we are with maybe some of our close friends. You know, it's a regular occurrence here around First Pres that you will be talking with someone that you have known for many years and it comes up in conversation and you...

The Word Became Flesh

Well, it’s almost here!  For some of you the excitement is at fever pitch; for others of you you’re holding on until the day after.  There’s still a lot of cooking and a lot of preparation and in-laws are descending upon you and yet it’s almost here, with all the joys that it brings.  You’ve watched the piles of presents under the tree grow over the last few...

If you have your Bibles, I’d invite you to turn with me to the gospel of John.  We’re taking a break from our series in the book of Hebrews to look at the Gospel - what is the Gospel?  There are wonderful summarizing statements of the Gospel all through the New Testament; there is none more familiar, more beloved, or clearer than this one.  This passage comes in...

Monday Morning Quarterback

A Biblical commentator tells the story of God’s love from an incident that occurred during World War I. During the darkest times of that conflict, a conflict that took the lives of a shocking number of English sons, a man took his little boy out for a walk at night. The boy noticed that some of the houses had stars in the windows. “That comes from this terrible...


John 3:22-26 Trust or Reject Him

Please open your Bibles to John 3:22, as we continue our study of John's gospel.

“After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He was spending time with them baptizing. John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there; and people were coming and were being baptized— John had not...

John 4:1-26 Temptation at the Well

Please turn with me to the gospel of John, chapter 4.

The Pharisees heard that Jesus was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John, although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but His disciples. When the Lord learned of this, He left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. Now He had to go through Samaria. So He came...

Found: When Ordinary People Meet Jesus

Each week over the last several Sunday evenings we’ve been looking at some of the encounters between Jesus and ordinary people in the Gospel stories.  These people come from different backgrounds, different ethnicities even.  Their problems, as we’ve begun to see, are complex; they are varied.  But in each case so far, they leave their meeting with Jesus changed forever.  Tonight we’re going to be thinking about what...

“Our Loving God and His Going Son!”

John 4:1-42

The Reverend Mr. Elbert McGowan, Jr.

(Brian Sorgenfrei) We’re going to be reading from John 4. Starting in verse 1:

“Now when Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that...

Maybe some of you are coupon clippers; you’re bargain shoppers. You like a good deal! But then you hear those dreaded words, “Some exclusions apply.” It’s not going to be as good of a deal as you once thought. I came across a department store coupon the other day that was $10 off for every $25 you spend; sounds like a pretty good deal, but “Some exclusions apply.” And...

Good morning. What a joy it is to worship together. Let me ask you to take your hymnals in hand and prepare to sing. As we hear God's call to worship, turn to No. 52.

O come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker, for He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, the flock...

John 4:1-30

“A Shady Lady”

Rev. Billy Joseph

If you have your Bible, turn with me to John chapter 4 Now, you all know that the series we're doing this summer was assigned to us by Derek. I've yet to figure out why I got this assignment. He also assigned me the title, and I haven't figured that part out yet...
