ORDINARY PEOPLE, EXTRAORDINARY FAITH
Leader: FRANCIS CROWDER
12 Week Study
NO MATERIAL COSTS
What is faith? To find the perfect description of faith, there is no better place to look in the Bible than Hebrews, chapter 11. Not only is faith defined for us but we are shown specific people who were remarkable for their faith - the heroes of faith. In this study from Hebrews 11, Ordinary People - Extraordinary Faith, Dr. David Jeremiah helps us understand more fully what faith is, but also who these "heroes" were - and through their stories we learn how ordinary people can do great things through faith in God.

Paul the Apostle was educated in the Temple at Jerusalem and because a part of the Pharisee leadership. Then, in what was one of the most amazing cases of corporate personnel raiding, God lifted him out of the mire of Temple politics and sent him on the road to bring His message to the world. Travel along with Paul as he spreads the new Gospel across the known world with his friends Barnabus, Silas, Timothy, John-Mark, and Doctor Luke. Learn the whole story, just as the scriptures tell it.
a righteousness not my own
Leader: rev. chase stone and larry stone
6 week study
no material costs
Room: SE 102
"For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith..." (Rom. 1:17). When Martin Luther read these words in the year 1517 it changed his life and the Christian faith forever. He realized that salvation does come through righteousness, not his own righteousness, but the righteousness of Jesus. This revelation opened his mind to a better understanding of who God is, and from that understanding came these five pillars of the reformation: GRACE ALONE, FAITH ALONE, CHRIST ALONE, SCRIPTURE ALONE, and to GOD'S GLORY ALONE.
Join us as we take a closer look at these five fundamental scriptural truths and the freedom found in them. It's a powerful message of how people can be forgiven of sin through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and receive eternal life with God by way of a righteousness not their own.
