THE TARGET OF TEACHING IS PREPARATION
In Matthew 5:1-2 it says: Now when Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to Him, and He began to teach them.
The heart behind the Teaching Ministry at theCross is to encourage and allow people to engage with the Bible, which is God’s inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word.
Quite simply, the goal of this ministry is discipleship; we want people to follow Jesus well. Discipleship takes place as people participate in Bible Studies and Small Groups to learn to read and study the Bible, understand what it means, discover what it means for them personally, and then apply it to their lives. Disciples then apply God’s Word in their lives by serving others and serving their church. We refer to anyone who serves at theCross as the Dream Team.
In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, we read: All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
We are passionate about helping people discover the truth, grace, and power contained in Scripture.
Bottom line: We need God’s inspired Word because it is full of life-giving and life-transforming power, and the amazing thing is that His Word is available to all of us.
