John 6:59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
John 6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
John 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
When Jesus Christ taught, many of His teachings were difficult to accept. When you attend a service with us, you are bound to hear things that you’ve never heard before. You will probably find some of our teachings surprising. Why is this? Simply because we base our teachings on the Bible. The Bible can be difficult to understand. In order to truly understand what the Bible teaches, we use the following principles:
- The Bible interprets the Bible;
- Clear texts interpret difficult texts (not the other way around);
- God revealed Himself over an extended period of history. Therefore, we must use the most recent revelation to interpret the older.
While we are confident that God has revealed His truth to us, we know that full truth comes over time. We, therefore, remain open to continuous learning. We welcome the opportunity to engage in public and open dialog about our teachings. If you’d like to dialog with us about one or more of our beliefs, please contact us.
