Our current series "Abide" is a fitting follow-up to our previous series on the book of Galatians. In that study the Apostle Paul encouraged the church of Galatia to "live by the Spirit" (5:16), "be led by the Spirit" (5:18), and "keep in step with the Spirit" (5:25). 1 John gives us direction on how this is to occur, namely, by abiding in Christ. The word abide or it's synonyms appear repeatedly throughout John's letter. 

Additionally, we will see how John combated some of the major heresies the church was facing at the time and how applicable the truths contained in John's writings are for today. 

We will answer questions such as: 

    How can you know you have eternal life?

    What are you to do when your heart condemns you?

    Does your belief about Jesus Christ match what 1 John teaches about Him?

    What does it look like to abide in Christ, and how do we abide?

Our hope is that we get a taste of the 'living water' that Jesus promises and that it becomes in us a spring of water welling up to eternal life.
