The task of Christian doctrine is like the task of telling a good story: God’s story. Our community is committed to following the example of the early Church as found in the Book of Acts where it says,
“… they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” –Acts 2:42
When we study God’s Word the supernatural happens. In II Timothy 3:16, 17, the Apostle Paul writes,
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Firstly, doctrine matters because how we tell God’s story of redemption really matters.
Secondly, for the Believer, faith precedes understanding. Christian faith by its’ very nature should be an inquiring faith which seeks this understanding. We confidently ask our questions because of a grounded faith in the only God who answers. Our faith is enriched in the process.
