A little while ago, we launched TTS Essentials - a brisk walk through some foundational Biblical truths, aimed at the busy believer who'd find Sunday evenings tricky to attend, or the Foundations course too big a commitment.
I've been really grateful to all those who have made it so far. Last night we looked at the doctrine of the Trinity. It's such a privilege to study these things at length. We've got one more Essentials session scheduled between now and the end of our summer term - we'll be meeting on Wed 3rd July at Freedom Church, from 7.15pm. If you've not been before, we'd love to see you!
So far I've not uploaded any notes for the Essentials sessions, primarily because they offer a modified version of what is taught in the longer Foundations course. However, after being asked about it last night, I've realised that it might actually be helpful to provide the notes here. Find below a copy of everything we've looked at so far!
After a bit of an unintended hiatus due to Church events in Chester, we met for another Foundations session on Sunday evening - our focus? Our own testimonies, but from God's perspective!
Every Christian has a story about how Jesus saved them. For some it'll be dramatic; for others God will have used ordinary circumstances. For some it'll be memorable; for others it'll be difficult to pin-point an exact moment. This is true throughout all of Church history - God is in the business of finding the lost, and Scripture promises that regardless of what your own story looks like, it's still a miracle, every time.
We have been regenerated and united to Christ - born again according to his likeness. We have been justified by faith alone in Christ - he takes our sinfulness, but we get his righteousness. We are being sanctified in Christ - conformed to his image. And we will be glorified in Christ - when at last God will be made all in all, he will be a bridegroom for a bride, and we will be a new humanity, in and for Jesus.
It's an amazing story of God's victory over Satan, sin, death and hell. "In Christ alone, my hope is found!" Find notes below, as well as that same Getty hymn, which perfectly encapsulates what we've established during this five-part series.
