Explore Your Faith Series

Teaching and Equipping in the Word

The Bible instructs us to "always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have". (1 Pe. 3:15).

The EXPLORE YOUR FAITH Series is designed for just such a purpose. Prepared and presented by Pastor Joseph Rodrigues, it brings excitement, meaning and purpose to our understanding of the Christian walk.

Jesus emphatically stated that "…the truth shall set you free" (Jn.8:32).The standard he referred to as the measure of truth is the absolute standard of God's Word, because God is Truth. It is the standard that identifies what is false. However 'knowing truth' does not simply involve an accumulation of facts; it involves understanding. The Bible exhorts us to have knowledge and understanding. Jesus often rebuked the Scribes and the Pharisees (the 'learned' men) for their lack of understanding, even though none could dispute their ability to quote Scripture word for word!

At the very heart of the EXPLORE YOUR FAITH series is the intention to bring understanding, so that we can be effective in the things God has called us to be and to do.
Therefore this series is intended to help the Christian:-
-to know what you believe
--to know in whom you believe
--to know why you believe
--to live like you believe

How it is structured and coverage
The series is essentially a biblically based Teaching Series. It is designed to equip the saints and bring them to maturity in Christ through the exposition of the Word. It is an open-ended, topical series. The series covers both Old Testament and New Testaments concepts, helping the individual to come to grips with the whole of God's plan for mankind as progressively revealed in his dealings with mankind in history, and also the promised events yet to unfold in the future. The series presents biblical truths in simple layman's language with particular emphasis on their relevance to and application in daily Christian living. The teaching necessarily addresses false teachings, so as to lay a solid foundation for further spiritual growth.

The series comprises wholesome material for Christians, regardless of their level of maturity.

The series will soon be available as audio and video presentations (as finance permits) with a view to the serious bible study group that is not satisfied with milk but would have the meat.
