1 JohnHow do you guard yourself from those who try to lead you astray?
How can a church ensure that it is holding to the truth of Jesus, even if people inside and outside claim to have the "right' or "true" message?

1 John points us in the direction of an answer!

So, fortunately for us, our "Life in the Light" teaching series in 1 John commences on August 6!  We will be looking together at four sections from the Apostle John's first letter to Christians in the first Century AD.  There is much in 1 John that is profitable for us today, especially the importance that John places on the person and work of Jesus.  If we understand Jesus rightly, we know and understand God.  Conversely, if we get Jesus wrong, we'll find ourselves far from God.

This teaching series is split, divided by a short series from the Sermon on the Mount, and a one-off talk on same-sex attraction.  An additional study guide is included in the booklet if groups need an extra study to stay in sync with the Sunday teaching.
