Bible Doctrine is a grace-oriented Christian Bible-teaching ministry. The sole intention of this ministry is to expedite the dissemination of Bible Doctrine via the internet. Everything on this website is absolutely free and without obligation, started to assist you, a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, begin your study of Bible Doctrine—the body of teaching drawn from literal interpretation of the Scriptures—so that you may absorb enough Bible Doctrine to develop the momentum for spiritual self-sustainment as you progress toward spiritual maturity.
Purpose . . .
The purpose of this ministry is to disseminate Bible Doctrine in its various forms and formats including: audio and video recordings of Bible classes, lectures, and sermons taught by spiritually gifted Bible teachers; books, articles, and publications written by spiritually gifted Bible teachers; diagrams drawn by spiritually gifted Bible teachers; and other audio, visual, and written forms.
Thrust . . .
The thrust of this ministry is to make Bible Doctrine available to all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to the end that each believer might become spiritually self-sustaining; till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a spiritually mature individual, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:13-16)
Freedom and Privacy . . .
The study of the Word of God is a private matter between you and God. A personal study will allow you the freedom and privacy to study Bible Doctrine at your own pace, wherever you are, and through your own volition (Psalms 119:45). Nonetheless, you are encouraged to supplement your personal study with the assembling of other believers for the purposes of exhortation (Hebrews 10:25), edification (Ephesians 2:19-22, 4:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; Proverbs 27:17), and establishing continuity of mind (1 Corinthians 1:10).
“Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11, NASB)
“not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25, NKJV)
The Word is Very Near You . . .
You are commanded as believers in Christ in this present Church Age dispensation to saturate your soul with the entire content of the Word of God [which is found only in the Holy Bible] and the entire realm of Bible Doctrine [which is communicated only by spiritually gifted Bible teachers]. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind the Word of God around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Show that you are a letter from Christ, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (2 Peter 3:18; Psalms 19:14; Proverbs 3:3; 2 Corinthians 3:3)
Enlighten, Inspire, and Empower . . .
Let the Holy Spirit enlighten, inspire, and empower you to find the answers [absolute objective truth] that you are looking for (Psalms 119:105), to be spiritually motivated to advance toward spiritual maturity [through the daily intake of the Word of God and Bible Doctrine, making the absorption of the Word of God and Bible Doctrine your highest priority in life] (2 Peter 3:18), and to develop the capacity to live the supernatural, unique Christian way of life for the remainder of your allotted time on the earth [a life dictated by the consistent thinking of divine viewpoint and the consistent expression of Christ-like behavior and attitude]. (Galatians 5:22-25; Luke 14:25-33; Colossians 1:23-29)
Personal Accountability and Responsibility . . .
As a believer in the Church Age, you are your own priest (1 Peter 2:9). As a royal priest, you are personally accountable to God (Romans 14:1-13) and personally responsible to grow up spiritually (2 Peter 3:18).
The End Goal . . .
“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:19-22, NKJV)
As spiritually mature believers, we each continually maintain our occupation with Christ with the result that we each continually have instilled in us life, love, and perfect happiness distinctive of the unique Christian way of life (Romans 14:8). Through the function of our continual, individual occupation with Christ, we each continually manifest virtue love, the epitome of the spiritual life.
“And now [continually] abide faith, hope, [virtue] love, these three; but the greatest of these is [virtue] love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13, NKJV)
The accumulation of our individual statuses as spiritually mature believers will transpire in the fulfillment of our end goals: to be indispensable witnesses for the resolution of the angelic conflict, to be reconciled back to God, and to share in His glory.
“Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:3, NASB)
“Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.” (2 Corinthians 5:18, NKJV)
“For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.” (Colossians 1:19-20, NKJV)
“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” (Romans 8:16-17, NIV)
Man is reconciled to himself when he is reconciled to God.
