The Gospel and The Local Church
We have spent the first part of the year exploring the multi-faceted nature of the Gospel. Our first two months were given to a narrative approach in an attempt to construct a foundation for a deeper conversation. Then, we spent 40 days studying the Gospel of Matthew. This last leg of our journey was focused on the more classical topics normally associated with a study of the Atonement.
Now, we will give our attention to how the Gospel is lived out in a local church. This will offer me the opportunity to set forth the theological foundation, vision and calling of our church.
We are in the midst of the first phase of our Master Plan. You have been incredibly gracious and generous in your support of the Blessing the Generations Campaign. Now we are going to spend a few weeks reminding ourselves of why we are doing all of this in the first place.
