Bible Teaching Program
Christ is our life.
Evangelical Christianity is not about morality and legality; it is new life in Christ. Religions can unite on moral grounds but only those who have received new life in Christ can be one in Christ. Being anti-gay marriage or anti-abortion is not the message of the gospel. The gospel is found in 2 Corinthians 5:17 'If anyone is in Christ he or she is a new creation, old things have passed away behold all things have become new.'
Last year, 2012, was the 150th anniversary of Isaac Sharp and Asbjorn Kloster's mission to the Faroe Islands.
During the 8 weeks they were in the Faroe Islands (April 23 - June 17), Isaac Sharp and Asbjorn Kloster sowed the seeds of the gospel on all 17 inhabited islands.
One third of the population attended their meetings. Only eternity will reveal the impact of this mission which was held some years before William Gibson Sloan (1838-1914) founded the Brethren Church on the Islands.
The courses on the Bible Teaching Program are designed to help those who desire to teach within a local church environment. Courses will be continuously updated.
The daily verses can also be used to provide topics for short messages. New Testament Verses.
The church in the book of Acts preached Christ. The believers were filled with His life; endued with His power; walked in His love; and gave themselves to His word. They held truth to be more important than the need for acceptance or recognition. They were filled with joy and excitement. They eagerly told others about Jesus because they had experienced Him. They preached because they had a message that brought life to whosoever believes.
Example of teaching from the Bible Teaching Program
Meaning of Repentance
Repentance means ‘to change our thinking’.
Repentance moves us from carnality to Christ.
In Christ we find life where we are brought out of the carnal mind and into the spiritual mind.
The carnal mind is rooted in all things associated with self; Works of the flesh
(1) sexual immorality both active and in the mind;
(2) religious, atheistic and materialistic idolatry which includes all the religions and philosophies of the world;
(3) self enthronement and the armoury of self that defends the so called rights of self; and
(4) the fast lane of the carnal mind where one lets go of inhibitions through excessive drink; drugs; or through the influence of others.
In the spiritual mind we grow in Christ and we put on Christ. The fruit of the Spirit is produced by growth in Christ; the armour of God must be put on. The evidence of new life in Christ is the shift from the carnal mind to the spiritual mind.
Teaching on worship
New Testament worship is not led by musicians; it is a lifestyle. The instruments of our worship are obedience; love; and joy. The Holy Spirit will be the conductor of our worship as long as we are sensitive to follow His leading.
