Believing in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior meant early Christians faced numerous challenges as they determined how their new faith informed their daily lives. For many, it meant rethinking choices and behaviors that the culture at large considered acceptable. The Christians in the city of Corinth had many questions they sent to the Apostle Paul for his wisdom. The letter we now call 1 Corinthians contains Paul’s response. By studying Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church, we can learn valuable lessons for living our life, acting godly, and making faith-informed choices. We can also take comfort in his emphatic message that we find our identity in Christ. In this Groundwork series, join us in examining Paul’s teachings on God’s wisdom, power and authority in the church, sex, Christian freedom, spiritual gifts, and the resurrection. And discover what our identity in Christ means for how we live out our own faith in light of the challenges we continue to face today.
