One Exception - A Series in 1 Corinthians
“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2
This Series focuses on the power available to the church through the foolishness of preaching and teaching Christ crucified. Paul resolved to know nothing while he was with the Corinthians, but the powerful message of the cross. This message that has been revealed by the Spirit in all its deep wisdom and glorious truth..
When the life of the church is focused and centred around this message, the church is protected from all sorts of dangers, dangers that were far too obvious in the dysfunctional Corinthians. So to protect the health of the Corinthian church, Paul calls them (and by extension us) back to this message.
The message of the cross protects us from division, leads us in holiness, empowers us for servant leadership and sends us out to offer this message to the world.
Join us each week as we explore what it means for us to be a healthy church who only have One Exception.
