The Importance of Biblical teaching

Home > Home, Minister's Blog > The Importance of Biblical teaching

What helps a new-born baby to grow strong? What is the stable diet of the young infant? It is milk. It is the same throughout much of the animal kingdom, the young needs the milk from the mother to grow strong.

In a similar fashion, when someone becomes a Christian, they become “as unto babes in Christ” (1 Cor 3:1), and need “the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2). Milk

A person who has been saved by God’s grace, needs to ‘grow strong’ as a Christian. But how are they to do this? They do so by reading, studying, praying over, and practicing the Word of God in their life.

How do I know if I should shop on a Sunday? What qualities should I look for in a husband/wife? What type of Church should I attend? What is so important about the Lord’s Supper?

All these questions and millions more are answered by the Word of God.

Sadly, much of the professing Christian Church has departed from teaching the Bible in favour of ‘entertainment’ in the Church services.

The consequence has been that Christians are not ‘growing strong’ in their faith. They are lacking knowledge and understanding of Biblical truths. This results in tragic consequences with many falling into sin, spiritual depression, and having no assurance of salvation or genuine walk with the Lord.

Have you been struggling for years in your faith and felt like you are going nowhere? Has your church replaced the teaching of God’s Word with entertainment? Are you being taught the Word properly?

What is the answer then?

We must say like the Psalmist in Psalm 119:169  “let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word”.

To this end, we endeavour to be a faithful, Bible teaching Church. It is our desire as believers to ‘grow’ in the Lord. We realise that to do this, we MUST be taught the precious Word of God, and practice it in our lives.
