Who should study with us?
Every Christian, All Believers, All Pastors, Elders, Deacons and prospective office bearers. Why?
The Lord writes to every Christian how to care for one another. For example, to provide for one another’s spiritual needs, Scripture reads in Galatians 6:1,2
Brethren, even if a man be overtaken in any trespass (sin), you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; looking to yourself, lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
This is Christ living in you!
Pastors and elders are especially called by the Lord and charged by Him to shepherd the souls of the Lord’s people. You ought to be fully armed with the knowledge of God. You are to be prepared and skilled and thus, with the enabling help of the Holy Spirit, apply the Spiritual Truth to your own life and to those who are in spiritual need. In God’s sight, you who are ordained to the work of shepherding His people are His professionals! That, in the final analysis is what counts. Pastors and elders, don’t be cowed. Growingly do what God requires of you and He will bless. God expects us to counsel effectively. He calls upon Timothy (and us all) to work assiduously at becoming more and more proficient at our ministry
1 Timothy 4:12-16. Let no man look down on your youth; but be an example for those that believe, in word, in manner of life, in love, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give heed to the public reading of the Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. Do not neglect the spiritual gift that is within you, which was given to you by prophetic utterance with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Be diligent in these things; give yourself wholly to them; that your progress may be evident to all. Pay close attention to yourself, and to your teaching. Persevere in these things; for in doing this you will insure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.
This is the Lord’s charge for you!
This course is for all believers. Enrich your knowledge in the Scriptures, and gain very practical insights in the way the Lord determined how we ought to live. The Lord requires us all to discipline ourselves to Godliness (1 Tim 4:7,8) and be our brothers keeper (Matthew 18:15-35).
This is the Lord’s grace working in and through you!
We look forward to hearing from you.
