Auckland Bible Discussion Group - Rejoicing
Our topic this week: REJOICING Come join us to learn more about our faith in God and share your opinions and views. We are open and keen to hear your thoughts, regardless of religiously or not. This is a free event, everyone is welcome. We established a warm, polite and safe place for everyone to share their thoughts and experience. We pray and provide support to people who are struggling in life in all three aspects: spiritually, mentally and spiritually. Our devotion, total commitment and ultimate loyalties are to God the Father, who is over all and in all and through all; to Jesus the Son, who has been declared both Lord and Christ; and to the Holy Spirit, who lives in us and empowers us to overcome the workings of the sinful nature (Acts 2:22-36, Romans 8:12-28). Our salvation totally depends on the work of God and nothing of our own merit. That work of God is one of mercy and grace. That work redeems those who hear, believe and accept the Gospel message and are baptized into Christ through their faith in God’s power (Romans 2:7, Acts 2:22-37, Ephesians 2:8-10, Colossians 2:12). Our motivation to love God, love each other and love the lost is prompted by God’s love for us, demonstrated in its greatest form by the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on a cross for our behalf (2 Corinthians 5:14-21, 1 John 3:16, Luke 10:27). As disciples of the Jesus, we surrender our lives to his Lordship. We rejoice in our adoption as God’s children and each accept the call to be holy and follow the example of Jesus. Our holiness in daily living is a command from God. We are called to be set apart from the world and the ways of the world (sanctified) and live as saints of God (Ephesians 1:1, Ephesians 2:1-4, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8, 1 John 2:15-17). We are committed to remembering the poor by demonstrating compassion to those who suffer by regularly doing whatever we can to lessen their burdens (Galatians 2:10). We stand by women having a ministry role in the teaching and training of other women. We believe that any congregation has the right to financially support these women in the ministry. We also recognize their value and influence in the lives of men in the church (1 Corinthians 9:5, Titus 2:3-4, Acts 18:24-26, Romans 16:1-15). Our communication within the church and outside of our brotherhood should always be genuine, respectful and never antagonistic (1 Peter 2:17).
