Pastor Dean started paraphrasing scriptures several years ago because he wanted the people of his congregation to better understand the Word of God. He always says, “God makes things simple” and in his desire to make the Word “simple” to understand he wrote the Street Version Gospels and Proverbs. We, as a church, cherish these paraphrases given in such a profound but simple way and we are growing! We know you will too. Here is an excerpt from the Gospel of John:


John 15:1-8

The true and living vine

1-2 “I am the true and living vine and the Father is the chief gardener. He removes every branch that does not produce and prunes those that do so they can bear more fruit.” 

3-8 “You have already been pruned because of the words I have spoken to you. Stay connected to Me and I will stay connected to you. A branch cannot bear fruit if it is not attached; and you cannot be fruitful without staying connected in a vital way. Yes, I am the vine and you are the branches. Stay connected and you will produce much fruit, but without the connection to Me you are worthless. Those who are disconnected from Me will dry up and then be gathered up and burned. If you will simply remain connected, you will ask what you will and it will be done. Those who produce much fruit are My true disciples and it brings great glory to the Father.”
