Through the Bible (James 2-3)
14 November 2012
In this study we covered James 2-3. In James 2 we did some review of Sunday studies and were reminded that God is impartial in dispensing love and judgment and were reminded of the precedent that Jesus gave us of being generous to the poor. We ended chapter 2 looking at the relationship between faith and works and saw that the good works that follow faith are the fruit or evidence of true conversion. James 3 had many strong exhortations and warnings, especially as it regards our words and tongue.
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.
