Everybody believes in something: the promises of others, the patient information leaflet that comes with your pills, and what we are told by good friends. Someone once wrote these words to his friend:
“You keep to the teaching you have been given and the things of which you are certain,
conscious of who has been your teacher…”
(Paul’s 2nd letter to Timothy 3:14-15)
At this point we could all tell our individual stories and then continue on our ways. All stays the same.
in a story which puts our personal experience into a new perspective. We can continue to read the Bible quotation above and learn that there is more. We are invited to learn from the Holy Scriptures “… which are able to make you wise to salvation, through faith in Christ Jesus.”
God wants to make a new covenant with us. This is made possible through Jesus Christ who won the victory over death. The Bible points to him. And whenever faith is expressed by deed, we’ll find love and hope for this life and beyond (1st Corinthians 13:13).
Religious traditions and peculiar teachings often become rampant and separate people from one another. We have discovered that a living faith is able to connect us and need not be complicated.
By using the word of the Bible alone as standard in matters of faith, we would like to do our part toward Christian unity as Jesus wants it (Gospel of John 17:20-21; Ephesians 4:3-6).
We don’t pursue a return to the past. We are looking forward to the future, to the day when Jesus comes back. Until then we want to contend “for the faith which has been given to the saints once and for ever” (Letter to Jude, verse 3) and you are invited as well.
Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We like to be there for you!
