i Believe Week 13 – Things I Believe About My Ethos
Series: i Believe

i-Believe-sermon-header

The word “theology” most simply means “the study of God.” Christian theology is digging into God’s Word – the Bible – to discover what He has revealed about Himself. When we do this, we come to know Him as Creator of all things, Sustainer of all things, and Judge of all things. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and end of all things.  This summer we will be exploring the basic, foundational beliefs of who we are as Grace Family Church.

Today we conclude our 3-month journey through what we believe as a church family by looking at our Ethos, our ways and habits of living.  Too often, it is easy to accumulate more knowledge without being transformed by that knowledge. We look at three different times Jesus talked about what we should do differently if we are following Him.

    Today we finish our journey of looking at the area of theology sometimes called Eschatology, or "Things I Believe About the End Times."  Without an over-emphasis (mania) or a fear (phobia) of this topic, we discuss a basic timeline of events for the end times, focusing mostly on the truth that God has determined the end, that Jesus will return one day, and that God is in control.

    Today we continue our journey by looking at the area of theology sometimes called Ecclesiology, or "Things I Believe About the Church."  We discuss the basis of how God desires for His people to function as a called out gathering of Jesus followers.  The church is not a building, a denomination, or even a social club ... the church is the living, breathing Body that Jesus lived and died to save.

    Today we continue our journey by looking at the area of theology sometimes called Hamartiology, or "Things I Believe About Sin."  We discuss the nature of sin, how it affects us and others, and from where it originates.  Succinctly put, unless we believe and teach the severity of sin, we cannot live or proclaim the gospel to be amazingly good news that it is.

    Today we continue our journey by looking at the area of theology sometimes called Anthropology, or "Things I Believe About Mankind."  We discuss the glorious truth that humanity is uniquely and specially designed in the image and likeness of the Divine, that it is that image that gives us value over every other thing in all of creation and that radically impacts how we choose to act in regard to other people.

    Today we continue our journey by looking at the area of theology sometimes called Angelology, or "Things I Believe About Angels, Demons, & Satan."  We discuss the (often) unseen spiritual world around us, with a focus on both not sensationalizing nor trivializing it.  Often misunderstood and sometimes abused, our discussion of the spiritual world points us back to Jesus Christ who established the victory over all things by His death, burial, and resurrection.

    Today we continue our journey by looking at the area of theology sometimes called Christology, or "Things I Believe About Jesus."  We discuss who Jesus is, how He could be both fully God and fully human, and what His life, death, and resurrection accomplished for those who follow Him.  In the end, everything we believe as Christians hinges on who it is we believe Jesus Christ really is.
