What the Bible Teaches Us2018-12-21T20:17:09+00:00

What Can We Learn?

We believe that the Bible is our source and authority for what we teach.  We believe that God is using the Holy Bible to communicate and teach us.  We use the word Holy because it is different than any other book.  There is power in God’s word.  We have experienced it in our lives and we want the same for you, too.

The Holy Bible

  • We preach what the Bible teaches

  • All scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man (or women) of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16
  • For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thought and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

    • Teach (2 Timothy 2:2)
    • Walk in/Practice/Work. The Bible talks many times about walking in, practicing, and even of our works.  These are not at all to earn anything from God from which we have received all because of His love for us.  We walk, practice, and work in response to all that God has done for us. As we do, we are contradicting the way of the world around and speaking freedom to those caught in it. (James 2:14-26, Philippians 4:9, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Romans 6:16, 2 John 6)
