Our lessons are focused around how each one of us can reach out to the lost to bring them into the fold, also how one church reaches for the ONE Christ, also how each one of us is a part of the one body.

Topic: Breaking Down the Walls
“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:28 NIV
Christ broke down the walls the Jews held that separated them from the Gentiles. Christ said that in Christ there is NO Jew nor Gentile for all are one in Christ. Christ said that there is NO slave nor free for all are one in Christ. Christ said there is NO male or female for all are one in Christ.
With Christ there is no status, no classes, no hierarchy, no politics.
Matthew Ch 7 Judge not
“So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.”
Galatians 5:16 NIV
Our flesh (also called sinful nature) wants separation, walls and things that we feel secure in. Things that make use feel “right”. But we should feel secure in our faith in Christ not in our status, money, self righteousness, knowledge of the Bible, etc.
We should welcome all to our services. We should show love to all. Not just those we feel comfortable around. Not just those who are like us. All. We show them the love of Christ and watch their faith grow and change them.
