Bible and Doctrine

The ministry of Family Worship Center recognizes the importance of the the Bible as God’s revelation to us and for us.  II Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:  That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”  The regulative principle of worship teaches us that the worship of God is not according to our way, but according to God’s will and instruction.  The Bible teaches us how to appropriately worship God and live the more abundant life that Jesus taught (John 10:10).  The Bible is the authority by which we live and form doctrine.

Doctrine is the principles and positions that guide a belief system.  Family Worship Center is guided by the Bible to teach us and live the principles that God gives us for salvation (Jesus Christ) and in living for Him.  Doctrine guides Family Worship Center in its ministry or sharing the gospel, the worship of God, training and equipping the church, sand showing forth the character of Jesus Christ.

The preaching and teaching of God’s word (the Bible) is a very significant part of the ministry of Family Worship Center.  For this reason, Pastor Gary Zigner preaches expository messages (that which explains the text within context and Biblical culture) to gain great understanding of the proper usage of the scripture.  You can listen to some of the Pastor’s messages by clicking here.
