 Only Jesus Christ

Who is the way, the truth, the life?
Who is the Holy Word of light?
Who is the vision to our eyes?
Who is the love that will abide?

 Only Jesus, only Jesus
Who is truest life?
Only Jesus Christ
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Who is lifted high?
Only Jesus Christ

 Who the purpose of our days?
Who is our hope that doesn’t fade?
Who is our courage and our strength?
Who is the fullness of our faith?

 Only Jesus, only Jesus
Who is truest life?
Only Jesus Christ
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Who is lifted high?
Only Jesus Christ
Only Jesus, only Jesus

 You are The Way, The Truth, and The Life
You are The Blood, The Water, The Vine
You are The Word and You are The Light
Only Jesus, only Jesus

 You are The Way, The Truth, and The Life
You are The Blood, The Water, The Vine
You are The Word and You are The Light
Only Jesus
Only Jesus, only Jesus

 Who is truest life?
Only Jesus Christ
Only Jesus, only Jesus
Who is lifted high?
Only Jesus Christ

 You are The Way, The Truth, and The Life
You are The Blood, The Water, The Vine
You are The Word and You are The Light
Only Jesus, only Jesus

 You are The Way, The Truth, and The Life
You are The Blood, The Water, The Vine
You are The Word and You are The Light
Only Jesus, only Jesus

 
Manifesto
We believe in the one true God
We believe in Father, Spirit, Son
We believe that good has won
And all of the people of God sing along
 
Amen, amen
Amen, amen
 
We are free, He died and lives again
We will be a people freed from sin
We'll be free, a kingdom with no end
And all of the people of God sing along
 Amen, amen
Amen, amen
Amen, amen, yeah
 
Our father who art in Heaven, hallowed by Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven
'Give us our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who have trespassed against us
 
Lord, lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil
For Thine is the kingdom, power, and the glory forever
 
We're singing Amen, amen
Amen, amen
Amen, amen, yeah
  
Who You Say I Am

Who am I that the highest King
Would welcome me
I was lost but He brought me in
Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

Free at last
He has ransomed me
His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin
Jesus died for me
Yes He died for me

Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am
In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am

 

Blessed Assurance

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood

This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long

Perfect submission, perfect delight
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love

Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blessed
Watching and waiting, looking above
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love

This is our story, this is our song
Praising our savior all the day long
This is our story, this is our song
Praising our savior all the day long

 

Goodness of God

 I love You Lord
Oh Your mercy never fails me
All my days
I've been held in Your hands
From the moment that I wake up
Until I lay my head
I will sing of the goodness of God

All my life You have been faithful
All my life You have been so, so good
With every breath that I am able
I will sing of the goodness of God

I love Your voice
You have led me through the fire
In darkest nights
You are close like no other
I've known You as a father
I've known You as a friend
I have lived in the goodness of God

Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me
With my life laid down, I’m surrendered now, I give You everything
Your goodness is running after, it’s running after me

 

King of Kings

 In the darkness we were waiting
Without hope without light
Till from heaven You came running
There was mercy in Your eyes

To fulfil the law and prophets
To a virgin came the Word
From a throne of endless glory
To a cradle in the dirt

Praise the Father
Praise the Son
Praise the Spirit three in one
God of glory
Majesty
Praise forever to the King of Kings

To reveal the kingdom coming
And to reconcile the lost
To redeem the whole creation
You did not despise the cross

For even in Your suffering
You saw to the other side
Knowing this was our salvation
Jesus for our sake You died

And the morning that You rose
All of heaven held its breath
Till that stone was moved for good
For the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs
And the angels stood in awe
For the souls of all who’d come
To the Father are restored

And the Church of Christ was born
Then the Spirit lit the flame
Now this gospel truth of old
Shall not kneel shall not faint

By His blood and in His Name
In His freedom I am free
For the love of Jesus Christ
Who has resurrected me

COVID-19 Update
Apr 05, 2021
City of God Family,
 
Recently, Governor Eric Holcomb announced that Indiana’s mask mandate would transition to a mask advisory on April 6. How will this announcement impact worship services at City of God? The following changes will go into effect this Sunday based on the Governor’s directives and conversations with the medical professionals at City of God.
 
Beginning this Sunday:
 
  • Our 9:45 and our 11:00 services will transition to a “masks recommended but not required” policy.
  • We will continue to require masks at our 8:30 service as an option for those who are not comfortable attending at 9:45 or 11:00. 
  • We will continue to ask people to register for services through the end of April. We are not requiring registrations for our Celebration Sunday Service on May 2, and following that Sunday, we will no longer require registrations. 
  • On May 9, we will transition to our summer schedule. As of now, those services will take place at 9:00 and 10:30 and, barring further announcements, will both operate under a “masks recommended but not required” policy.
 
Over the course of the past year, our elders committed to making decisions based on the directives of our elected officials and the advice of the medical professionals at City of God. Both of those groups are now instructing us that this is a reasonable course of action moving forward. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out. It was great to see so many of you at our Easter service yesterday, and we’re excited to see what God has in store for us in the coming months.
 
-       Pastor Eric

New Sermon: Warnings & Witnessing
Mar 22, 2021

What is the book of Revelation trying to teach us through the seven judgments of God that accompany the blowing of the "trumpets?" There are times when God's judgments are actually warnings to his creation to wake up before it is too late to turn back to him. If this is God's heart, how should the church respond?

New Sermon: Making Sense of Suffering
Mar 14, 2021

At some point, everyone wrestles with an important question. If there is an all-powerful, all-knowing, and good God over all things, how can there be so much suffering and evil in our world? Revelation 6-8 attempts to help us make sense of suffering. How can we make the most of the time we have here, and what might the purposes and plans of God be behind our current experiences?

You can listen to our latest sermon below:
