– Is God sovereign over salvation? What does that even mean?
– Did I choose God or did God choose me?
– Did God predestine me to salvation? What’s the deal with election?
– Can I lose my salvation?
– Did the cross simply make my salvation possible or did it actually accomplish my salvation?
Find out the answers to these questions and more at the next Doctrine 101 class where we will be taking a look at the doctrines of grace.
This class will happen during the first service in the conference room at Woodland. All are welcome! It is expected that you will attend the service after attending Doctrine 101.
Here are 4 reasons why doctrine is so important:
Because we love God. And if we love God, we’ll want to know all about him – about his nature, his character, his purposes, his commandments; about the work he’s doing in the world, about his work in saving people, about his plans for the future.
Because what you believe will shape your spiritual life. The way you think about God will affect the way you relate to God.
Because without it we won’t understand the world in which we live. A thorough knowledge of Bible doctrine will give you the tools to sort out all the practical problems of living in this complex fallen world – even in matters where the Bible doesn’t speak directly.
Because without it we won’t know what to say to unsaved people we meet. Peter tells us that we must be ‘prepared to give to every man a reason for the hope that is within us’ (1 Peter 3:15). We have to be competent to answer questions.
