Forward – Campus Plan Video

We were so excited to share many plans as we go forward!  With all the items we shared at Waypoint, some of the news regarded campus plans.  Check out this video to get the summarized version.  We have all the information in a document at the church office and we will share more on here in the days to come for how you can get involved!

The Word Reading Plan [Week 13]

The Word Bible reading plan is a chronological 100-day guide that focuses on 50 pivotal Old Testament readings and 50 pivotal New Testament readings.  As we go through “The Word” series, our Sunday sermons will focus on the passage for that day.  During the week, our church will be reading through the rest of the passages to gain a fuller understanding of the grand narrative of Scripture. In addition, we have a Bible study for adults and students on Wednesdays…

Interpreting Acts

The Book of Acts is a unique book in all of Scripture.  Being the only narrative-based book in the New Testament that isn’t a Gospel, extra hermeneutical precaution must be made. Download Handout – Session 10 – Interpreting Acts Narrative Reminders In reading biblical narratives, we must be aware of the three levels: Top Level – the complete universal plan of the Sovereign God being worked through His creation Middle Level – key aspects of God’s plan centering around God’s people…

The 5 Solas [Simplified]

The Protestant Reformation was a major 16th century European movement aimed initially at reforming the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church.  This movement literally changed the world.  This year, we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation’s birth when Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses on the Castle Church in Wittenberg. As a result of the Protestant Reformation, Protestant denominations were born (Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, etc.).  Much of the doctrine that is accepted by evangelical Christians was reinstated during that time…

Interpreting the Gospels

As we approach the New Testament, the first hermeneutical task is to learn how to study the Gospels.  The Gospels are the accounts written to portray the person and work of Jesus Christ. The four Gospels all tell the same story but from different perspectives and to different audiences. Download Handout – Session 9 – Interpreting the Gospels How Were the Gospels Composed? The Gospels are books about Jesus but not by Jesus. The Gospels contain narrative portions as well as…

Interpreting the Prophets

Interpreting the Old Testament prophets is an important hermeneutics’ skill. While the prophets are historical literature, they are more like sermons commenting on the events than detailed reporting of the events. Download Handout – Session 8 – Interpreting the Prophets The Prophets’ Contents Most of the prophets’ messages focused on current disobedience and consequential impending judgment. Only a small percentage of Old Testament prophecy foretells future events. Instead of providing new commands, the prophets warned about disobedience to the old commands.…
