The Pastor’s Bible Study
The Gospel According to Jesus
a faith that restores all things
Mondays at 6:30 pm

This is a nine-week study based on the best-selling book by Chris Seay.  Here are the notes from the book’s cover:

Imagine a church where 84% of Christians are completely unfamiliar with the essential tenets of their faith, with a crippling misunderstanding of the word righteousness and, in turn, the gospel of Jesus. According to a survey conducted by Chris Seay and Barna Research Group, this is not just speculation; it’s the reality for the church today.

The Gospel According to Jesus takes an in-depth look at this research study, which examines our understanding of the command, “Seek first the kingdom and His righteousness.” Most Christians define righteousness as morality. This means that what’s being preached by the church is not at all the gospel Jesus intended for His followers.

Through personal stories, interviews with today’s church leaders, and a detailed study of the Book of Romans, Chris uncovers a staggering disconnect between the gospel according to Christians and the gospel according to Jesus – the redeeming, restorative gospel that a broken world so desperately needs. Our role, he says, is to join Jesus in restoring the world. Will you?
