Have you ever felt like you’ve had make a choice between living what you know is true and compromising that truth to show someone love? Join our Groundwork discussion as we dig into 2 John to discover what it really means to live our faith in truth and love and why both are crucial to defending our faith against the antichrist.
As the church began to form, the Apostles often wrote letters to new and existing churches when they could not visit in person. The letters celebrated faithfulness to the gospel, encouraged steadfast living, and corrected wayward teachings. This Groundwork series studies the four shortest letters in the New Testament: Philemon, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude to discover what these succinct memos teach us about living faithfully for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Have you ever wanted to ask God questions like: are You listening to me? God, why don’t You answer me? God, why did You do that? Why don’t You fix this? In the biblical book of Habakkuk, the prophet asks God these questions and in his discourse we find answers to our questions about how evil can exist if we have a just God, how we should respond to unanswered prayers, and where we can find continued hope.
Christians refer to the Bible as the Word of God. It's the book that informs our faith. Yet many still wonder, is the Bible true? Is it a historical book? Is it accurate to say there are no errors in it or that it is 100% true? In this Groundwork series we discuss the trustworthiness of the Bible by studying what Jesus says about scripture, what the Bible says about itself, and the impact this has on our faith.
