Why Does Biblical Teaching Matter?

Humans glimpse God’s great knowledge and wisdom, His awesome power and creativity by observing the world around them. But much more can be learned about God through reading The Bible. It is there that we learn about His mercy, grace, love, and righteousness. It is there that He reveals how it is possible for us to experience a close and eternal relationship with Him, and it is there that we learn how we are to live and what we are to live for. It is through the Bible, that God ministers to our souls.

For these reasons, The Bible is held in very high esteem as a source of God’s wisdom at Lakeshore Baptist Church. Teaching is focused on lovingly helping people understand what The Bible is saying, and how to apply its wisdom to our lives in today’s society.

“The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the judgments of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether. They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.” Psalm 19:7-10 NASB
