..and you shall know that I am the LORD your God,
who brought you out from under the burdens…
Once man begins to understand that God has actively pursued him and is trying to have relationship with him the next act of God is to give man a knowledge of His salvation. In the Old Testament whenever someone wanted to know what God was like they went to God’s covenant. Since that time God has had the greatest desire to give us a knowledge of Him that is written not only in books, but upon our hearts. This knowledge is what transforms someone into a new creation in Christ, a new understanding brings about a new kind of person. We believe that the Church is longing for strong teaching when it comes to the Word of God which is the Holy Scriptures. We frequently deal with the “dusty corners” of the Bible believing that all of scripture has something to teach us. We also deal with original biblical languages i.e. ancient Hebrew and Koine Greek. Our lessons are constructed with the idea that God want’s your whole being and that includes your mind.
Questions we ask ourselves about knowledge:
What is God teaching me?
How is this knowledge shaping my action?
