Over six weeks, we are going to see Paul show Timothy and us how to restore order and purpose to the church. There are many situations and people that cause disruption in the church and hinders the impact of gospel work. In 1 Timothy, we read a holistic vision of the nature and mission of the church. Many bad, wannabe teachers, shared false theology and confused believers. Paul instructs Timothy on how to address these teachers and lead the church effectively. Throughout the book, we see that what a church believes will directly shape how its members live and behave, our belief and behavior.
The church's theology and beliefs must constantly be critiqued and formed by scriptures and the good news about Jesus. How the church is perceived in public is also very important. It should be known for its devotion to the risen King Jesus as it models integrity, good works and serving the poor and most vulnerable. Join us as we take an in-depth look at this letter to Timothy and apply the truth, so that we can truly grow in Christ and make an impact for the kingdom!
