KEY MESSAGE:

The key message of this series is JESUS.
The Series "JESUS TO CHRIST" is designed "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, you may have life in His name."

THE 6-WEEK SERIES

Take a journey with Jesus to the Cross and Beyond. This is an invitation to all ordinary members and followers of Jesus to reflect on the extraordinary journey of His last days, as told in the Gospel of John.

The 6-week series is designed to answer the question: "Who do you say I am?" From Jesus to Christ is not about focusing on when did Jesus become Christ. Instead, the series will focus on when did people and His disciples know that Jesus was Christ and Lord.
