The Gospel and Singleness

This week, we ask how the gospel informs singleness.  The Bible teaches that singleness is a unique gift in that it grants the individual the opportunity to remain fully devoted to the Lord without the additional relational responsibilities of marriage.  Whatever our relationship status, it is important to remember that God is able to use us in a way that is pleasing to Him.   Discussion Questions How do you generally view singleness?  Positively or negatively? Do you often find yourself…

The Gospel and Marriage

Section 8: The Church Week 2: The Church’s Authority and Power Day 1: The Church’s Authority and Power is an Extension of Christ’s Authority and Power Acts 1:1-11 We saw last week that Christ gave the Church a mission.

The Church Fulfills Its Mission by Transforming People into Christ’s Image

Section 8: The Church Week 1: The Nature of the Church and It’s Mission Day 5: The Church Fulfills Its Mission by Transforming People into Christ’s Image Eph. 4:11-16 Earlier we discussed the need to worship God with all of our lives.
