From young children to senior adults, our pastors and volunteers share scripture in a way that each person can understand how they can apply it in their life. The Bible - a 2,000 year old book - is still being explained and applied to our current culture in a way that changes lives.
"We all love stories of when God shows up and does amazing things at a specific point in time. You have a health need, and God heals. You have a need for wisdom, and God gives guidance. We have a need for strength, and God prompts a fellow believer to encourage us. I certainly have specific examples of all of these things. But the thing that astonishes me is that God speaks clearly through Pastor Gregg and Pastor Malcolm and through our Life Bible Study teachers every week as they explain God's Word to me and to my family.
From young children to senior adults, our pastors and volunteers share scripture in a way that each person can understand how they can apply it in their life. Just thinking about the number of people who spent time this week preparing to explain God's Word this coming Sunday is amazing. God is currently speaking to them about what they are to communicate to us. Consider the scale of that occurring across all of our campuses each and every week. God is active at our church! Certainly Pastor Gregg is a gifted teacher. So are all of our campus pastors. So are the hundreds of Life Bible Study teachers who volunteer each week. This 2,000 year old book is still being explained and applied to our current culture in a way that changes our lives.
Our recent family mission trip to Israel was a great example of this. Pastor Gregg climbed up in a tree and shared about how the crowds gathered to hear from Jesus while we were standing in Galilee. He explained God's ability to bring peace in the midst of life's storms while we were in a boat on the Sea of Galilee. ertainly my head understood the truth of what he was teaching, but Pastor Gregg shares it in a way that my heart could feel it. I could trust it. It's hard to describe, but it's real, and this quality of teaching occurs week in and week out across all of our campuses. When our culture questions what is truth, I find truth being taught at Houston's First."
