July 2 marks 3-years since we started Abundant Grace Bible Fellowship. When people ask about church the first question is always: How many are you running? This is by far the most common question because success in religion is always measured in seats filled. It is unfortunate that most Christians feel this way. It's been said that "Success is NOT measured in the seats filled but in the doctrine taught" It's no wonder this thought never comes to mind for Christians today. It's because Christians join churches today for the music, coffee in the foyer and the programs not the teaching. By the way, if its all about the numbers we might as well all join Joel Osteens church online. I completely understand grace churches are typically small in comparison to the churches teaching tradition. Right division creates mature, stable and equipped Christians that have a proper understanding of the things many Christians struggle with. We are finishing up a series of lessons showing that if you removed Paul's books from the Bible that prophecy continues uninterrupted throughout scripture. Wrapping up this lesson this Sunday we will review some of the things a person will have a proper understanding of if they would have attended our small group of Bible believers for the last 3 years. Here's a sampling of those things.
