The Christian statement known as The Apostles’ Creed traces its origins farther back in church history than any other creed or confession. And it’s a Trinitarian creed with one section each for the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Let's spend some time thinking about and discussing that third Person in God: the Holy Spirit.

What the Bible Says about Itself

Checking a person's credibility usually means asking others what they know about the person. Similarly, when we check the credibility of a source we do things like verify authorship and compare with other reputable sources. So as we discuss the trustworthiness of the Bible, it might seem odd to go to the Bible itself. However, different letter writers in the New Testament give us the simila...2 Timothy 3:10-17, 2 Peter 1:16-21

Some years ago a number of books and articles were written around what some called “The Battle for the Bible.” Theologians and others were debating what kinds of words we should use to describe scripture. Is it inerrant? Infallible? Authoritative? Trustworthy? The arguments can sometimes seem like hair-splitting, but the basic issue is an important one: can we believe the Bible?

He Remains Faithful

Do you need encouragement to endure in your faith? Are you discouraged and feel like maybe God abandoned you and you're wondering why? Paul says "Remember, he remains faithful." Join this Groundwork discussion as we explore this faithful saying and discover how it reminds us of our baptism, being joined with Christ in his death and his life, and why it means we can count on God's faithf...2 Timothy 2:11-13

The Value of Godliness

June 26th, 2015

Most of us understand the value of physical training and exercise, whether we possess the discipline to do it or not! But the Apostle Paul would argue that's all well and good, but there's something better. In fact, think about what you personally find valuable in your life; Paul would probably still say, well that's good...but godliness is better. Join us on Groundwork as we study ...1 Timothy 4:8-10

A Noble Task

June 19th, 2015

In 1 Timothy 3:1-7 Paul affirms that serving the Lord is a noble, admirable task. But are you willing to live a life worthy of that noble task? What are the qualities of a good leader serving the Lord? On Groundwork we discuss this second trustworthy saying from Paul to help us evaluate our own life goals and aspirations.
