Ongoing Bible Study

Currently every Wednesday, 12:00-1:30 PM

 

United Methodists share with other Christians the conviction that Scripture is the primary source and criterion for Christian doctrine.  Through Scripture, the living Christ meets us in the experience of redeeming grace.  We are convinced that Jesus Christ is the living Word of God in our midst whom we trust in life and death.

 

The bibilical authors, illumined by the Holy Spirit, bear witness that in Christ the world is reconciled to God.  The Bible bears authentic testimony to God’s self-disclosure in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ as well as in God’s work of creation, in the pilgrimage of Israel, and in the Holy Spirit’s ongoing activity in human history.

 

As we open our minds and hearts to the Word of God through the words of human beings inspired by the Holy Spirit, faith is born and nourished, our understanding is deepened, and the possibilities for transforming the world become apparent to us.
