Summer Scripture Series: Foundational Beliefs of Our Faith
Every Tuesday, from 06/09/2020 to 07/28/2020, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Date: Jul 28, 2020
Join us for this four-session exploration of the foundational beliefs of our faith. In June, we will explore the two foundational beliefs about Jesus: the incarnation (who Jesus is) and the atonement (what Jesus did). Then in July, we will explore our understanding of salvation both as Christians and as Methodists.
June 9: Who Jesus was as God (the Incarnation)
As Christians, we affirm that Jesus was not only human but that in some way he was God, one of the three members of the Trinity. But how did this belief arise? And what does it mean? We will explore these questions in this session.
June 30: What Jesus Did (the Atonement)
What does it mean to say that Jesus died for our sins? What did Jesus actually do, and how does that actually impact our lives today? These are the questions we will explore in our second session.
July 14: What Does it Mean to be ‘Saved?’
What is “salvation?” What is justification, sanctification, or prevenient grace? In this session, we will explore our New Testament understanding of our relationship with God and what God did in Jesus.
July 28: What Is Our Role in Salvation?
We will end our series on the foundational beliefs of our faith by focusing on the two main views of salvation today: Calvinism and Arminianism. This will include the issues of predestination and free will as well as whether salvation is by “God alone” or whether we have a role in our own salvation.
