From January through July 2017 East Woods Presbyterian will journey as a whole church, from the little ones to the most seasoned members, to believe the core truths of the Bible and to become more like Jesus every day.
We will embark on a holistic study called “BELIEVE”. Grounded in Scripture, BELIEVE is a unique discipleship experience that helps Christians of all ages become more like Jesus in their beliefs, actions, and character. This topical, abridge Bible illuminates the core beliefs of the Christian faith to help you think, act, and be more like Christ.
Over 30 weeks we will dive into BELIEVE and unpack 30 big ideas of the Bible. Everyone in the church will be touched by this study. Children and Family Ministries, Youth Ministries, Adult Ministries, Connecting Time and our sermons will emphasize the lesson for each week.
Our syllabus of study:
10 Key Beliefs of the Christian Faith to “Think Like Jesus”
The first ten chapters of Believe detail the core Beliefs of the Christian life. Together they answer the question, “What do I believe?”
10 Key Practices of a Jesus-follower to “Act Like Jesus”
The second ten chapters discuss the core Practices of the Christian life. Together they answer the question, “What should I do?”
10 Key Virtues of a Person Who is Becoming More Like Jesus to “Be Like Jesus”
The final ten chapters contain the core Virtues of the Christian life. Together they answer the question, “Who am I becoming?”
This is an exciting opportunity for East Woods. We will grow together in belief, practice and virtue.
