Sermon Series: Blueprints of a Healthy Church

Our vision is to be for the gospel and for the city. What does that kind of church look like? What’s it known for in the community? How does it pray for its community? What impact does it make on leadership, government, culture, business, family life, and recreation?

Thankfully, Jesus has given us a detailed blueprint. Join us this fall as we teach, verse-by-verse, through the book of 1st Timothy, and learn how His good news, the gospel, has the power to transform our church and our city.

Going Deeper

Download Study Notes

We are excited to offer this in-depth study of 1 Timothy to complement our sermon series. This Going Deeper study can be used in your personal devotional life or studied and discussed together in a group.

1 Timothy has passages that are encouraging as well as challenging. Paul instructs Timothy to structure this church so that it emphasizes the Gospel and fights against false teaching. Paul also acts as a spiritual father as he encourages and disciples this young pastor. As a church and as individuals, we have much to learn from this book.
