New Sermon Series: κατηχέω

Join us for a new sermon series this Sunday that we are calling: "κατηχέω." This word, pronounced "katēcheō," in Greek means, "to instruct." As we conclude our study of the Book of Acts, let me remind you of a very important aspect of the early church:
   And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, and to the breaking of bread and the prayers. (Acts 2:42)

     What specifically was the apostles' teaching? Yes, they taught the Jesus has risen from the dead. Yes, they taught that forgiveness of sins comes through faith alone. Yes, they taught Jesus will return to fully realize the Kingdom of God here on earth. But the question is how did they teach these truths?

     Early Christian formularies reveal that early church focused on three things when instructing new converts to the faith. These include the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten Commandments.

     Therefore, I am very excited to announce that over the course of this next year we will embark on a journey through these essential components of the Christian faith. We will be preaching primarily from the Scriptures, and we will have the Anglican Church in North America's Catechism, To Be A Christian, as a companion on this journey.
