2 Timothy 2:2
….what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
Rooted 2:2 is one of Redeemer’s responses to 2 Tim 2:2. Is it enough to ‘believe?’ What is faith? Is your faith the faith of which the Bible speaks? The modern church seems to have left the faith of old. Are we free to develop the Christian faith any way we choose? We would answer “No.” There is a body of doctrine which is to be believed by each generation of believer then passed on to the next
To train others (both men and women) in the faith once handed down to the saints takes intentionality and devotion. Our main vehicle for discipleship is Life Group. Rooted 2:2 will go deeper. Seasonal studies will be offered in systematic theology, Biblical community, homiletics, apologetics, and church history.
Who is a candidate? Someone who has interest in the things of faith enough to devote time and energy to prepare the work and make attending sessions a priority i.e. ministry leaders, lay leaders, postulants for Holy Orders. Ministers and leaders from other churches and denominations are always welcome.
Rooted 2:2 is not a replacement for seminary but it could help prepare one for seminary or be a good basic training for those who have no seminary training.
Beginning Saturday, February 4 7:00 to 8:30 am. We will begin with Michael Horton’s Pilgrim Theology. Follow the link to purchase your copy. Session 1 will be overview and introduction.
