At the start each year, I preach on a topic of theology.
This series, I will be teaching on the subject of Heaven.
This is a part of the larger doctrine we call, “Eschatology” (the doctrine of last things.)
Early Christians were enthralled with heaven.
Roman Catacombs, where the bodies of many martyred Christians were buried, contain tombs with inscriptions:
“In Christ, Alexander is not dead, but alive.”
“One who lies with God.”
“He was taken up into his eternal home.”
“Pictures on the catacomb walls portray heaven with beautiful landscapes, children playing, and people feasting at banquets.”
We will cover topics like:
- What is the new earth?
- Will I have a body?
- Where are the dead now?
- Do we die and wait for the day of Resurrection at the Second Coming, or are we raised to life instantly after death?
- Can people in heaven see what’s happening on earth?
- What about children who die, do they appear in heaven as adults or do they grow up?
- Jesus said there’s no marriage in heaven, what is my relationship with my spouse from earth like?
- What are a the first things I’ll see in heaven?
On Tuesdays, we come together to dissect the Word of God,
to Fellowship with one another, and to grow with our peers
as we come to know God more fully.
We have 4 Discipleship Groups that gather together after the Bible Study:
John reads a letter that he wrote to Palms that shows just how deep of an impact Christians can have when they trust the Holy Spirit's guidance
His Letter to the Church
"Then I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding. "
"Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord!"
"For though I be free from all men, yet I have made myself a servant."
1 Corinthians 9:19
We would love to meet you and your family! Come as you are! Suit and tie or board shorts, it doesn't matter. God desires a relationship with YOU, not your clothes, and we do too!
