Through the Bible (James 1)
07 November 2012
In this study we began James with a short introduction to the book, its authorship and general subject. In Chapter 1 we saw James, the brother of Jesus, hold out to us the blessing of trials and temptations and saw how God uses them in our life to mature us and grow us in our faith. We were exhorted not just to be hearers of God’s Word, but to be doers of it, showing that our religion is genuine and not fake.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
