John writes to a church (or group of churches) struggling to live out the reality of their faith. Although only a generation or so since Jesus was crucified and resurrected, the freshness of the message is wearing off, and heresy has infected the church’s teaching.
This class is an interactive consideration of John’s words to them and how to live out those words ourselves, putting our love in action as we fellowship with the Father and with each other.

Some important questions Christians have about their future, eternal home are:
Dr. David Jeremiah’s recorded messages (and workbook) will provide answers to such questions, hoping to make our eternal home as real “on earth as it is in heaven.” No matter your age, please join us to explore what God says about the place He has prepared for us.

Within a mere four centuries, Christianity went from a fledgling group of followers of the risen Christ to being the official religion of the world-wide Roman Empire. The faithful in the early Church struggled with division and persecution from the outside and error and heresy from inside. However, such struggles brought clarity to faith and doctrine. Over the time, clarity also came in organization and worship. The apostles had used the Jewish synagogue as a model, but a strong, distinctly Christian identity emerged. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, many faithful believers had a powerful, positive influence on the surrounding Greek and Roman cultures. Overall, how these early Christians lived and worshipped will be explored through Bible references, a class booklet, transparencies, video presentations, artifacts and class discussion. Our heritage from the early believers is rich, so join us to see how we believe and worship today emerged from the faith and practice of the early Church.
