Wiki

Jesus, the King of the universe, asked us to learn everything He taught (Matthew 28:19-20). It was the last thing He said before ascending to heaven (Luke 24:51), being the Great Commission for all believers. The best way to fulfill this is to personally read the Bible, starting with the New Testament and then reading the Old Testament (John 17:17). To help with interpretation, we also provide a list of articles that explain what God’s Word has to say about every topic in the world. Instead of reading every page in order, we encourage you to save this page and read specific topics whenever you are struggling to answer a problem in your life.

The Basics

Get started by understanding the most crucial aspects of following Jesus Christ.

Grace of Salvation

“Call on the name of the Lord” Jesus in love (Matthew 22:37-38) without hate (Matthew 8:29) to start a relationship with God (Romans 10:13). Read more…

Confidence before God

Sin & Character

Sin hurts ourselves and others, and character helps us to not do them. All sin falls under lust or pride (I John 2:16). These sins manifest themselves in 9 primary ways and can be destroyed by the character of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).

Lust & Contentment

Lust makes us feel like we need various pleasures, such as gluttony, greed, and sexual immorality, but God has given us the ability to be content (Philippians 4:11-13). Read more…

Pride & Humility

Our life should not be about fighting for our rights (I Corinthians 9:15,19) but becoming a servant to all (Mark 10:43-45), bearing with the weak (Galatians 6:2). This is because we know we can do nothing good on our own (Isaiah 64:6), and are fully indebted to God in gratitude (I Thessalonians 5:18). Read more…

Hate & Love

Unhealthy disgust becomes resentment and hate. All commandments can be simplified by loving God and others, the 2 greatest commandments (Matthew 22:36-40). Read more…

Depression & Joy

Unhealthy sadness becomes depression, but only through sadness can we be healed (Matthew 5:4; Ecclesiastes 7:3) and find a deep source of joy (Philippians 4:4). Read more…

Anxiety & Peace

Unhealthy fear leads to anxiously worrying, but peace leads to courage that erases all shame and guilt (Philippians 3:12-14).

Wrath & Patience

Unhealthy anger becomes wrath.

Laziness & Kindness

Apathy leads to laziness, but healthy ambition is kindness in a compassionate direction.

Hypocrisy & Goodness

A liar tends to hypocritically condemn, while a good person honestly seeks pure righteousness through judgment (John 7:24). Everyone does what is right/good in their own eyes so the root of unrighteousness is hypocrisy.

Idolatry & Faithfulness

The idolatrous seek self-worth from temporary sources, such as the approval of others, while the faithful seek after God alone.

Manipulation & Gentleness

Manipulators hurt others for their own benefit, but the gentle know how to benefit others and themselves.

Weakness & Self-control

The weak can’t do what they want, but the self-controlled can do anything God wants them to.

Your Purpose

Good works are what you should do to fulfill your purpose (Ephesians 2:10). 

Good Works

proves real faith (James 2:24), shown to others (Matthew 5:14-16; James 2:18) as a personal example (I Corinthians 11:1) without boasting (Proverbs 27:2), by faith not law (Romans 3:27), balancing joy and helping others (attach article), all done in excellence (Romans 12:2)

Reconciliation and Restoration

can’t offer gift (really spiritual gift) if you’re unreconciled; living in harmony

Determining your Gifts

Each Christian is given a different manifestation of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 12:7) for the purpose of working together in unity (I Peter 4:10). Learn more about spiritual gifts.

Unity

Eagerly seek to unify with other Christians (Ephesians 4:2-3) who share the same definition of the Gospel of Salvation (Titus 3:3-11) and deity of Jesus (I John 4:2-3). Read more…

Discipleship

Ultimately the greatest work we can do is to lead other people to serve Jesus (Matthew 28:19-20). There is no greater deed than leading someone to say they are sorry for their sins (Luke 15:7). Always remember that for any good work that you do, it doesn’t matter if many people are coming to your church or if many people like you. If they don’t eventually commit their life to Jesus, your work is in vain (Galatians 4:9,11).

War

When should I fight (Matthew 10:34), or when should I live in peace (Romans 12:18)? Why are physical wars a necessary evil (Luke 22:38) but spiritual warfare something to encourage (II Corinthians 10:4)?
