1 Corinthians: Life Together in the Local Church

February 2016 —

Over the course of Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, Paul teaches us what true ministry ought to look like (ch. 1–4), what purity and holiness is (ch. 5–7), how to love one another for the glory of God (ch. 8–10), what church gatherings out to look like (ch. 11–14), and the resurrection (ch. 15). The following messages come from Occoquan Bible Church from 2016–17.
