Foundations: The Basics of the Christian Faith
Wednesdays at 7:15 a.m. in the Prayer Chapel
Taught by Pastor Seth
Jesus says we are to build
our lives on a solid foundation—Jesus’ words as found in the Bible, God’s
Word. God’s Word reveals God’s
character, promises, and will—how we are to grow in our faith and live in a
relationship with our Heavenly Father.
One way of building a solid
foundation in our lives is to understand and live out, the core truths of the
Christian faith. These core truths are
often referred to as “Doctrine,” “Systematic Theology,” and/or “Apologetics.” While these titles can be daunting, and even
brushed aside as the “stuff” only pastors deal with, this is not so. Biblical and doctrinal truths are the
foundation upon which we build our lives so that we are able to live lives of
freedom, hope, and contentment.
This study will explore ten,
core doctrines of the Christian faith that will build a solid foundation in our
lives as we understand and live out these truths of the Christian faith:
‘God’s Word’ or a ‘Good Book?’”
“The Trinity: One
God or Three?”
“Salvation: Saved not Just From Hell but For Life!”
"Sanctification: Growing Up in Christ "
The Word Proclaimed and the Sacraments
Coming of Jesus"
Every week, the Wednesday
morning Bible study begins with Worship, as we sing some of the classic songs
of faith. We then pray together, lifting
up to our Heavenly Father our needs and the needs of others. Finally, we dig into God’s Word as it is
addressed to us through Law and Gospel.
This study is open to men and women of all ages, and, if you don’t know
much about the Bible—this is a perfect place for you! Bring your Bible (if you don’t have one,
we’ll get one for you)!
