Pastor Tom starts a brand new series this week on the book of 1st Corinthians. This week's message is titled The Power of Unity. He starts his message off by reading 2 Kings 4:38-41, which is a parable for mixing the old with the new, thus setting the stage for 1st Corinthians.
He follows with a history of the birth of the Church of Corinth found in Acts 18.
Pastor Tom points out that 1 Corinthians 1:10 is the theme of the whole book. "Now I plead with you brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment."
He tells us that unity is the heartbeat of the church and that the common theme running through 1st Corinthians is the church gathering together in a spiritual community.
Please watch this message and follow Pastor Tom as he delves into the book of 1st Corinthians.
