7 Churches

The book of Revelation begins with a vision of the Son of Man in all his glory. The vision is followed by seven letters to seven churches that existed in John's day. Through those letters Christ reveals his presence with and his care for his people. A seven-week series out of Revelation on the letters to the seven churches.

7 Churches: Laodicea | Revelation 3:14-22

In the final letter in Revelation, Jesus is called "the ruler of all creation"... he's the one who is in control. But what happens when, instead, we try to take control?

7 Churches: Philadelphia | Revelation 3:7-13
November 16, 2014 | Pastor Mike

Jesus introduces himself to the church in Philadelphia with an interesting picture: He is the one who holds the key to the door. What door is He talking about? And what does it all mean?

7 Churches: Sardis | Revelation 3:1-6
November 9, 2014 | Pastor Mike

The church in Sardis was one that, compared to the others who received John's letter, had a lot going for it. Virtually no persecution. And yet, Jesus' letter to them was a scathing rebuke. 

7 Churches: Thyatira | Revelation 2:18-29
November 2, 2014 | Pastor Mike

In our world of technology, it can sometimes seem like somebody is always watching you. But nobody is really watching everything I do... right? Actually, as Jesus reminds his church, he's always watching.

7 Churches: Pergamum | Revelation 2:12-17
October 26, 2014 | Pastor Mike

What do you do when the world around you is presurring you to participate? And does it even matter? The third letter in Revelation reminds us that it does matter, and there is a Judge watching.

7 Churches: Smyrna | Revelation 2:8-11
October 19, 2014 | Pastor Mike

What do you say to someone who is suffering? What do you say to someone going through a crisis? Christ's second letter in the book of revelation is written to a group of people who are going through just such a crisis. 

7 Churches: Ephesus | Revelation 2:1-7
October 5, 2014 | Pastor Mike

In the first week of our new series, we take a peek into the writing and recording of the book of Revelation, and introduce the letters to the seven churches. And then we set our sights on the first letter, to the church in Ephesus, which still as as much truth about God's presence as in did in the first century.
