Marked By The Gospel

Have you ever wondered if you can know for sure if you are going to heaven? Maybe you know someone who is questioning this in his/her own life and don't know how to provide assurance. Join in as Pastor Ron steps through 5 distinct marks that characterize an authentic follower and learner of Jesus in his study "Marked by the Gospel". You'll walk away with your own assurance of salvation and be equipped to help others identify for themselves, in full confidence, how they, too, can know if they are saved.


A rancher's brand distinguishes ownership. How does God identify His flock? Join in as Pastor Ron answers this question by stepping through 1 John 1 and identifying 2 marks of an authentic follower of Jesus. Have you been "Marked by the Gospel"?


1 John 1:1-10

1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we looked upon and have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life— the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us— that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (ESV)

John 1:1-4

1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. (ESV)

1 John 5:13

13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life. (ESV)
