Welcome to heaven! Chapter 3 ended the timeline of the church age, and immediately “after this” we are in the presence of our Lord! Join us for an in-depth study as to why we believe in a pre-tribulation rapture. See the first sights, hear the first sounds, and become a tour guide for the believer’s eternal home.
Peter writes to exhort the elders in feeding the flock. Learn a brief outline of church leadership as we study the roles of elders, bishops and pastors. Recognize what Biblical leadership looks like and how it applies to our walk with Jesus. Here we are called to submit to our elders and be subject one to another, humble. Consider what it means to be a feeder of the flock and the non-fading reward therein. It is in grace we stand, God’s riches at Christ’s expense.
Tonight, we dig deeper into Titus 1 as we learn some background information about Titus, and Paul’s relationship with Titus. Paul writes about church organization and the importance of simplicity.
Tonight, we study 1 Timothy 3, where Paul takes a closer look at the importance of elders in the church, what the role of an elder should look like and the qualifications of an elder. Pastor Brett talks about how the elders at Athey Creek are appointed and what the Bible says about this process.
Tonight, we begin Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi. We see that this letter is a word of encouragement and gladness. Brett gives us a bit of a background on the Philippian church.
In Galatians 5, Paul continues to speak to the church at Galatia about legalism and grace. Paul specifically talks about circumcision - a controversial topic of his day.
As we examine the letter to the church at Laodicea, we find there are many similarities to the church today. This teaching highlights the dangers of relativism and liberalism within the church, which seem to be growing trends. What is the solution? We need to make sure Jesus is at home, not only in our hearts, but in our churches as well.
In Revelation 4:1-4, we find the word “meta tauta” meaning “after these things”. Brett begins to talk about what John writes after the history of the church. We see the doors of heaven open, a trumpet sound, John caught up in the spirit, the majesty of God’s throne and 24 elders around the throne.
We cover the end of Paul’s first missionary journey. It wasn‘t an easy one as he and Barnabas were met with extreme reactions. On the one hand, some gave them praise and exultation they neither wanted, nor sought. On the other end of the spectrum, they faced fierce opposition and even stoning. In all of this, the gospel was taught faithfully and brought about much fruit.
