Name Above All Names

LIFE GROUP SERIES - Fall 2022

Am I believing, receiving and experiencing Christ in all the ways He has revealed himself?  In this 8 week series we will study the names and titles of Jesus and enter into a deeper understanding of who he is and what He came to do in our lives. As we study his names and titles, that we would know him better, experience Him deeper, and accept him more fully in all the ways He has revealed himself.  That He would become first in our thoughts and first in our heart and that we would be enabled to trust Him and treasure him more we ever have before.

‘But to all who did receive Him, who believed in his Name, he gave the right to become children of God”. John 1:12

 

“Therefore, God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the Name that is above every Name, so that at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  Phil 2:9-11
