We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God

the discussion of doctrine
The Discussion Of Doctrine
  • What is doctrine?
  • Why is it important for us to know?
  • Define the different doctrines of the Christian faith
  • Define the Doctrine Of Christ
  • How does it differ from the other doctrines?
  • Relate to Christology

The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God the Father almighty,

maker of heaven and earth;

and in Jesus Christ

his only Son our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

suffered under Pontius Pilate,

was crucified, dead, and buried:

he descended into hell;

the third day he rose again from the dead;

he ascended into heaven,

and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father almighty;

from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit;

the holy catholic church;

the communion of saints;

the forgiveness of sins;

the resurrection of the body,

and the life everlasting.

doctrine is
Doctrine is :

A statement of what we believe to be true about our Faith.

It is shaped by theological reflection.

Theology simply means “the study of God.” It is reflection upon the nature, person, and works of God.

The goal of theology is not to confuse but to clarify. Doctrine is intended to sharpen our understanding of faith, not to dull it.

. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that: a crucifixion.

Kingdom Community


The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,


he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor.

He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind,

to let the oppressed go free,

(Lk 4:18)..

liberation continued

Four Groups of people need liberation:

  • The Poor (those who lack the basics of life
  • The Captives (those held prisoner spirit/ Emotion)
  • The Blind (those blind to spiritual truth)
  • The Oppressed ( those under pressure)

the act by which God restores a relationship of harmony and unity between Himself and human beings. The word can be broken into three parts that express this great truth in simple but profound terms:“at-one-ment.”Through God’s atoning grace and forgiveness, we are reinstated to a relationship of at-one-ment with God, in spite of our sin.

atonement continued
Atonement (continued)
  • The Hebrew term frequently translated “atone” has the basic meaning “to wipe out,” “to erase, “to cover,” or perhaps more generally “to remove.” In the kjv it is translated by such expressions as “to make atonement,” “forgive,” “appease,” “pacify,” “pardon,” “purge,” “put off,” and “reconcile.”
  • What is it?
  • Why was it Necessary?
  • How was it achieved?
  • What does the Bible have to say about It.
  • What value is it to us?

it is the judicial act of God, by which he pardons all the sins of those who believe in Christ, and accounts, accepts, and treats them as righteous in the eye of the law, i.e., as conformed to all its demands.

In addition to the pardon (q.v.) of sin, justification declares that all the claims of the law are satisfied in respect of the justified. It is the act of a judge and not of a sovereign. The law is not relaxed or set aside, but is declared to be fulfilled in the strictest sense; and so the person justified is declared to be entitled to all the advantages and rewards arising from perfect obedience to the law :

jesus does not apply the word to himself
Jesus Does Not Apply The Word to Himself
  • Matt 20 ;28

Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Luke 4:18

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
