11. Christ Our Atonement

11. Christ Our Atonement

Genesis 3

Today, our series “Who is Jesus?” leads us to the book of Genesis. In Genesis 1 we see the wonderful work of God in His creation and in Genesis 2 we see God’s special favor towards man emphasized. But in Genesis 3, we come to the saddest moment in human history, when sin entered the world. This is something that the Word of God takes with absolute seriousness. There is nothing insignificant and there's nothing frivolous in this passage. Every word...

9. Our Union in Christ

9. Our Union in Christ

Romans 6:1-14 

As the Scripture reveals to us the awesomeness of Jesus, it establishes in Romans 5:12-21 and Romans 6:5 that true believers have a union with Christ: “We have been united with him in a death like his...” God established this union between Christ and all true believers so that what happened to Christ is counted by God as happening to us. In other words, His death is our death. It was God that established this union. 1 Corinthians 1:30 says...

8. Justification

8. Justification

Matthew 5:17-48 

As we continue in our "Who is Jesus?” series, we plan to take some time to discuss Jesus' role in the first part of our salvation. Our salvation actually has three basic parts. Justification, sanctification, and glorification. But all to often our justification becomes a small dot in the review mirror of our Christian walk. When in fact it is the very foundation on which our Christian faith is built...

7. God’s Gift of Righteousness in Jesus

7. God’s Gift of Righteousness in Jesus

Job 9:2; Romans 3:21-25 

As we continue our series on “Who is Jesus?” Our goal is for you is not only to know who Jesus is, His work and His person but for Him to be the focal point of your life. And that you would be so deeply in love with Jesus that you’ll have a deep desire to grow in His likeness and knowledge of Him.

Over the past 6 weeks, we have seen from God’s Word “Who Jesus is”. He’s God...

6. The Evidence of Jesus’ Deity

6. The Evidence of Jesus’ Deity

John 5:30-47 

Last week we were able to see from God’s Word that Jesus was fully man. For the first 30 years of His life, Jesus lived a human life that was so ordinary the people of Nazareth who knew him best were amazed He could teach with authority and work miracles. They knew him. He was one of them. He was “the carpenter’s son” (Matthew 13:55), and He was himself “the carpenter” (Mark 6:3). He was so ordinary they...

4. The Birth and Early Years of Jesus

4. The Birth and Early Years of Jesus

Luke 2:1-52 

As a church we should count it an honor and privilege to know “Who Jesus is.” It is an honor to share His love with our community and our world. However we cannot expect an unbeliever to accept our testimony concerning “Who Jesus is” when we cannot describe to them His deity, His character or the work of His salvation. So, we are continuing to speak on “Who is Jesus?” to help each...

2. Does The World Need A Savior?

2. Does The World Need A Savior?

Romans 1:18-21, Assorted Scriptures 

Our Vision and Purpose statement tells you who we are and why we exist: “CrossBridge Church exist to bring Glory to God by Making Gospel Disciples and Sharing the Love of Christ with our community and our world!”

If we are going to fulfill our Vision and Purpose statement, we must know “Who Jesus is”! This is vitally important before we can bring any glory to God or even attempt to make Gospel Disciples... 

1. Who Is Jesus Historically?

1. Who Is Jesus Historically?

John 1:1-5a; Genesis 1:1 

In Matthew 16:13-17, Jesus was speaking to his disciples and asked them...

“...Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven.”...
