    God’s Good News – The Gospels

    4 Week Series

    The story of Jesus is so important that only one account of His life would not seem to be enough. Just as there are four points on a compass and four seasons to a complete year, it took four accounts to give us a complete picture of the life of Christ. Matthew portrays Jesus as King, Mark reveals Jesus as a Servant, Luke upholds Jesus as the Son of Man, and John demonstrates Christ to be the Son of God.

    1. Jesus is The King: Matthew 1-28
    2. Jesus is the Servant: Mark 1-16
    3. Jesus is the Son of Man: Luke 1-24
    4. Jesus is the Son of God: John 1-21

    The Acts of the Holy Spirit – The Early Church

    2 Week Series

    Acts provides the bridge between the ministry of Jesus Christ and the letters of the Apostles. As is suggested by the title, Acts is a book about what God accomplished through these early believers. It is a book of action more than a book of doctrine, as the Holy Spirit works through the Apostles to spread the Gospel message and establish the Church.

    1. The Acts of the Holy Spirit: Acts 1-12
    2. To the Ends of the Earth: Acts 13-28

    Life Changing Letters 1 – Letters of Paul

Romans lays out the message of hope proclaimed by the Church. The letters to Corinth address general problems that arose in the Church. Galatians strikes at the heart of the most deadly problem: confusion about the Gospel of grace. Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians describe the Triumph of Christ for and through the Church.

    2. Salvation Applied: Romans 9-16
    3. Paul’s Guidance for Confused Christians: 1 Corinthians

    Life Changing Letters 3 – General Letters

    7 Week Series

    Unlike the majority of Paul’s letters written to specific churches, most of the recipients of these eight letters were either churches that covered a large geographic area or are all Christians. In general, James and 1 Peter call believers to a holy walk with the Savior. Second Peter and Jude warn believers against the presence of false teachers and call them to contend for the faith. Hebrews and John’s letters primarily call Christians to abide in Christ as God’s final revelation.

    2. A Better Way, Part 2: Hebrews 8-11

    Brighten Your Light – The Revelation of Jesus Christ

    1. Seeing God’s Passion: Revelation 1-3
    2. Understanding God’s Judgment: Revelation 4-18
    3. Envisioning God’s Plan: Revelation 19-22
