In this 8-part series, Dr. Tony Evans challenges Christians who have grown comfortable and complacent in their faith. Fellowship with God is the essence of our faith, and Tony walks through 1, 2 & 3 John to paint a picture of love, obedience, and truth. In a world that hates Jesus, we are called to love Him and His people with a fierce love.

Dr. Tony Evans is Founder and Senior Pastor of the 10,000 member Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, President of The Urban Alternative, and Chaplain of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. His radio broadcast, The Alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, can be heard on nearly 1,000 U.S. radio outlets daily and in more than 130 countries. Tony was the first African-American to graduate with a doctoral degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. He has authored over 100 books including Oneness Embraced, The Kingdom Agenda, Raising Kingdom Kids, Victories in Spiritual Warfare, Kingdom Woman, and Kingdom Man. Tony and his wife, Lois, have four adult children.

We can have a relationship with God and His family, and not enjoy it. We can live secure in the promise of eternal life, but still find the everyday worries of this world crushing our spirits. The apostle John wrote his short letters so that we could have the same thriving and life-giving relationship that he had with Jesus Himself while the Savior walked the earth.

Listen to Tony's encouragement to leaders:

As you dive into the epistles of John, take heart! You and your group are already part of the family of God if you've trusted in His Son. This study—and the experience of the truths in the study—will challenge you to grow in relationship with each other and with God. 

You're part of the family of God. It's time to really enjoy it.
