The Common Faith – Item 4 – Christ Died for Our Sins

By becoming a man, God accomplished a great thing: He died for our sins. Our sins were like a debt we could not pay. So, Christ came and paid it for us. In doing this, He has reclaimed ownership over us and has brought us back to Him. Today, we appreciate this wonderful fact by believing in Him and confessing our sins!

Fall 2020 Reading Challenge – 1 & 2 Thessalonians

This fall, we are going to be getting into 1st and 2nd Thessalonians.  In these letters, the apostle Paul touches some very serious points which have to do with serving God, how to conduct ourselves, and the Lord’s second coming. In 2nd Thessalonians, the apostle encourages and even corrects the believers in Thessalonica. We hope that everyone will set aside a time each week to read a chapter, either by themselves or with others.

The following is a schedule for our reading this semester:

Week 1: 9/12-9/18: 1 Thess. Chapter 1

Week 2: 9/19-9/25: 1 Thess. Chapter 2

Week 3: 9/26-10/2: 1 Thess. Chapter 3

Week 4: 10/3-10/9: 1 Thess. Chapter 4

Week 5: 10/10-10/16: 1 Thess. Chapter 5

Week 6: 10/17-10/23: 2 Thess. Chapter 1

Week 7: 10/24-10/30: 2 Thess. Chapter 2

Week 8: 10/31-11/6: 2 Thess. Chapter 3

You can also use this link to join a Bible tracker where you’ll be emailed the chapter each week and also check it off!

The Common Faith – Item 3 – God Becoming a Man

The third matter of the common faith is that God Himself became a man (Jesus Christ). Do you remember from last week that God is inseparable? Thus, when He became a man, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit also became a man. Today’s verses will help us see this wonderful fact!

Gospel Meeting: A World in Crisis

This next hour may change your life. It’s all about Jesus Christ.

He is the fountain that never runs dry. When we believe in Him, He comes to live in us and satisfies our deepest thirst. He really does!

For My people have committed two evils: / They have forsaken Me, / The fountain of living waters, / To hew out for themselves cisterns, / Broken cisterns, / Which hold no water.  – Jeremiah 2:13

We are pleased to share this good-news-video with you! It comes from the church in Irvine, California. Watch, Open your Heart, and See how Jesus Christ is such a fountain, and how He can be yours, too!

The Common Faith – Item 2 – The Triune God

For this second item of the common faith we come to the Triune God. First, we’ll see that God is one. Then we’ll see that God is Triune. Although we can’t really explain how He can be one and three at the same time, yet we don’t say that the Bible contradicts itself. Rather, we believe the Bible and receive the truth found in it. Let’s see how the mystery of the Triune God is revealed in the Bible.

The Common Faith – Item 1 – The Bible

The Common Faith - Item 1For our Bible study on the common faith, the first item we cover is the Bible. The Bible is where we find the word of God and the contents of our faith.  Although we may use ministry books that open the Bible to us and help us to understand the Bible, the Bible is always the final authority on any matter.

We should be able to answer questions about the Bible. Using verses in the Bible, can you show what the origin of the Bible is? How about this question: Is the Bible really that good? What can it do for us? The attached slides reveal the answers.
