The Apostle Paul had a very strong interest in the church at Corinth, as he and his companions established it and brought it through its early development. But, Corinth was a church embedded in the worst social conditions imaginable in the highly sexualized and paganized Greek city. As such, there is much in common to our church and theirs. Paul will directly address numerous issues in his two letters to Corinth that will directly relate to our own cultural needs.
He furthermore gave numerous instructions to the young church that serve as general "Church 101" training for the church in all ages. We will go through seven chapters of 1 Corinthians through the end of this year in several series. See the Sermon Calendar page for a full listing.
We are presently in a "series of series'" where Paul will deal with several different church issues; including wrong attitudes, church discipline, disputes, sex and marriage. We will continue through 1 Corinthians verse by verse from chapters 4-7 as Paul addresses each.
