The local church is responsible for evangelizing within the community and reaching out to those who don’t know Christ. The church must go out and share the Gospel and the love of Christ. This can be done through outreaches and functions planned to draw the unsaved to the church. As the church we are
We often hear of the “Great Commission” being the true representation of what the church is to do. Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” This is Christ himself telling us what we must do; in today’s society how many churches actually follow this? The church is a gift of God, and He desires to see all humanity in communion. The only way to see this happen is to go and spread the Gospel with every person on this glorious earth, which is the foundation for every church.
Many Christians use the Bible when making a moral decision because they believe it is the word of God spoken to the Bible writers. It is God’s guidance to human and has absolute authority in decision making. Secondly, it contains the teachings of Jesus on how to live. They should follow his teachings about moral decision making e.g. the Sermon on the Mount is Jesus explaining the Ten Commandments.
Majority of people depend on the church teachings. They know their lives and hope depends on the word of God. The church must be on the front line towards integral development of its people. As social agent of change we must listen to the voices such as: what are they saying? What is not adding up in people’s lives, what is the church doing?
ii) Those who believe in Christ become sons of God (John1:10, 12) and they will not be condemned (John3:16-18), the believers are entitled for eternal life. iii) INCARNATION: How Christ the Word became flesh/man and came to dwell among mankind. (John 10)Though many dispute the deity of Christ, it is the truth. God himself at Jesus baptism attested to Jesus as his only begotten son (Matthew 3:14, 15). IV) Justification Doctrine: The believer should learn and eternalize the message of redemption and justification.
This is something that needs to be addressed in order for the furthering and advancement of our Trinitarian understanding of God’s redemptive story. A thorough examination of Scripture with the commentating aid of evangelic theologians is how I plan on approaching this topic. However, just like in the interpretation of any Scripture, context is key. Thus a chronological examination of the role of the Holy Spirit in the redemption of mankind is in order: beginning with the life and ministry of Christ, transitioning to his death, the time in which He was dead, and ending with His glorious resurrection. In order for us to properly interpret the roles of the Holy Spirit some context is necessary, which leads us to the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.
Christian Education is a part of God’s purpose to put everything in Creation under the feet of Christ; it serves as part of His purpose to subdue people from all nations to the glory of God. I also think a Christian Education is a better education, because it feed the soul as well as the mind. It addresses the whole human being; it involves the body, sprit and the mind. One important goal of Christian Education is to teach the student to reason biblically. If each adult person or the parents of younger student took it upon themselves to be more Christ-like and build their foundation of education to glorify God, they would choose the Christian Education over the Public Education, which is controlled by the state.
Through the divinity and humanity of the Christ, Christians and believers share the stories through word of mouth. The Son of God is also evident from the sacred texts of the Gospel testimonies which include the wonders and recoveries on people achieved by Jesus, and from the witness to his death, resurrection and ascension into heaven by his followers and other eyewitnesses. The beliefs of the divinity recognise his relationship to God as Son. Jesus’s divinity showed Jesus’ role to be the salvation of humanity and to resurrect and rise to defeat death. In the Gospel of John 1:14 “The Word became
The Holy Spirit is important in causing the change and the Word of God is the source of helping the client to become Christ -like. According to Adams (1986), this change must be toward God and must be “from the heart outward” (p. 7). If not, then the change is just superficial and it will eventually lead the client further astray. The very backbone of his counseling is 2 Timothy 3:16, which states: ," But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work"(NIV, 2010).
The first key to spiritual growth is the scripture. Studying, knowing, applying the scripture to one’s Christian life is absolutely necessary if there is going to be any spiritual growth. The scriptures are the “word of God” as it says in 1 Thessalonians 2:13. In all reality the scripture originated with and are the product of God. Not only is the scripture God’s word, but also it is accompanied with God’s power to “perform its work”.
