Fall Schedule for Attributes of God Study

The issue of having a correct theology is critically important.  That’s why I am teaching a course on the Attributes of God.  During our Fall 2018 semester of Equip, we will be looking at a different attribute of God every week.  Attributes of God are the foundational beliefs about who God is and what he is like that comes from Scripture. You can’t worship a God fully if you only know Him partially.   If you would like to know…

Attributes of God [Fall 2018 Equip Study]

A. W. Tozer was a brilliant theologian and pastor of the twentieth century. In his book, The Knowledge of the Holy, he presented a thesis statement that signifies the importance of addressing the issue of theology. He wrote: “What comes to your mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you.” On the first read, that statement may seem a bit dramatic, but is he on to something here?

Praying the Lord’s Prayer as a Church

Jesus taught us to pray in what we call the Lord’s Prayer.  Have you ever thought about how you can use this prayer as a template to pray for our church? Here’s how Jesus taught His disciples to pray: 9 Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. 10 Your kingdom come, your will be done,     on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and forgive us our debts,     as we also…
