The purpose of this website is to introduce all people to the person of the Lord Jesus Christ so that they may become members of the Ecclesia, the true body of Christ. The Lord Jesus in Matthew 16:18 said, "Thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church," the Ecclesia. Baptism, communion, confirmation, church membership are not guarantees you will be in heaven, but membership in the Ecclesia does make you a member of the body of Christ, the "called out ones." The Ecclesia refers to all people from Pentecost until His return in I Thessalonians 4:13-18 who have been bought with His blood, Acts 20:28. Jews and Gentiles are called into one body, Ephesians 2:14-16, Romans 10:12, with Christ as the head.
The continued purpose of this website is to teach the Word of God to help true Christians grow in your faith with a verse by verse study of various books of the Bible. From time to time under topical studies, you may check into some subjects that I have been asked to address.
Please feel free to print out the material and use in your personal ministry. The introduction can be used as a soul winner's guide. I Thessalonians is intended for new Christians and II Corinthians for those who are growing in their faith. A study in James is being presented because of its practical application of faith to every day life experience.
We have begun a study in Isaiah to help all in the family of God develop a good foundation of Old Testament truth. To understand Bible prophecy, twenty-five percent was prophecy when written, one-half of this has already been fulfilled, this foundation is essential to New Testament understanding of prophetic truth.
May the Holy Spirit guide us all in the study of His Word, I John 2:27. Feel free to e-mail us at InternetBibleStudies.org with any comments or suggestions.
