The tomb is empty! On Resurrection Sunday, we remember and celebrate the central truth of the Christian faith: Christ is risen, He is risen indeed! During this final message of our “I AM” series, Pastor Josh Scott reminds us that resurrection means that we should never stop hoping, because God does his best work when everything seems to be hopeless.

In the Jewish Temple there was a curtain that separated the rest of the Temple from the “Most Holy Place,” which is the place where the presence of God was believed to dwell. After Jesus dies on the cross, this curtain is torn in two, from top to bottom. During this message Pastor Josh Scott explains the significance of this moment for us today, and invites us to embrace what it means for us.

For our Palm Sunday worship experience, Pastor Josh Scott discusses another “I AM” statement of Jesus; “I am the True Vine.” He explains how the vine is always the source of where life must come from, and how when we are not connected to this Vine, the life that God has for us withers away. But the Vine that we have the opportunity to be transplanted with has a life full of good works that He has prepared for us.

Jesus claims in the book of John that He is “The Way.”  Pastor Josh Scott explains in this sermon how “The Way” is exclusively inclusive; that while Jesus is the only way, He accepts anyone who desires to follow Him. We also learn that this Way is more than a ticket to heaven, and is more about the way of life that Jesus has given to us. The early Christians were known as “The Way” in many passages in the book of Acts, because they were known to act in the way that Jesus did before He died. Are you a part of The Way that Christ has set out for us?

This week Pastor Josh continues our “I AM” series by looking at Jesus’ claim to be the “Good Shepherd.” In this teaching, Josh explores what this idea of “good” means, and what it means for us to be the sheep and Christ to be our Shepherd.

When Jesus says “I am the Gate,” why does this change our lives? This week of our Lent series, “I AM,” pastor Josh Scott explains how the Shepherd requires that the sheep enter into this specific gate. Those who try to enter in another way are robbers, but the sheep don’t listen to them. Our Shepherd wants us to enter into His way of abundant life. The question that we have to deal with is “Have I entered into this Gate?”

Having light is something that we cannot live without. It’s what got things started “In the beginning” and it keeps things going even now. This week, Pastor Josh Scott explains the significance of Jesus’ claim as the Light, and how we are told to “shine your light before all men.”

When Jesus claims to be “The Bread of Life”, what is He saying? Bread is such a common theme through scripture, and this week, Pastor Josh Scott explains why Jesus claiming to be this “Bread” is such a big deal. Christ wants us to look to Him for daily bread, but we find it in so many other places. But He is the Bread of Life, an abundant, overflowing life.

At MCC, Lent is always a very special time that we spend preparing ourselves for Resurrection Sunday. For Week 1 of our “I AM” Lent series, Josh Scott explains just why the claims of Christ about his identity are so controversial. The religious leaders thought he was crazy, and deserved to be stoned to death! But “I AM” had a purpose much larger than causing a local riot. He came to fulfill all that God had put into motion since He revealed Himself in a burning bush to Moses; to come down and offer freedom to His people.
