Wednesday Night Adult Class: 2 Timothy Series
OUR VISION: “TO RAISE THE NEXT GENERATION OF CHRISTIAN LEADERS WHO WILL HONOR GOD IN OUR THEOLOGY, CULTURE AND PRACTICE OF THE GOSPEL.”
Then he came to Derbe and Lystra. And behold, a certain disciple was there, named Timothy, the son of a certain Jewish woman who believed, but his father was Greek. 2 He was well spoken of by the brethren who were at Lystra and Iconium. (Acts 16:1-2)
Paul had previously written to Timothy explaining that the local church is the “pillar and ground” for God’s truth (1 Tim. 3:15). He had said that the purpose of the local church is the proclamation of God’s truth in the world. He had also said that the purpose of church leaders is the exposition of God’s truth in the church. Conditions facing the church had worsened considerably since he had written 1 Timothy. Characteristics of the last days were becoming increasingly obvious (2 Tim. 3:1-7). Godlessness and worldliness were invading the church. If the church failed to fulfill its purpose, God’s truth would cease to go out into the world. The church would fail if its leaders failed to expound God’s truth to the saints in the church. Consequently, Paul wrote this letter to encourage Timothy to fulfill his responsibility as a leader in the church. This epistle, therefore, is particularly for church leaders and deals mainly with their duties.
