God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24)

About

The Eastside church of Christ
“Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us.” - Phil 3:17
  • In our daily lives this is our first and highest goal. We do not want to be merely speakers and hearers of the word, but doers of it throughout our lives. (James 1:25, Philippians 4:9). Where the Bible looses we want to loose, where it binds then so do we.

  • When we teach the Bible we want to speak not from our own think-so, but from the word of God (1 Peter 4:11). The Holy Spirit has revealed in the word the bounds and the liberty that God has established for the faith. So we earnestly want to “accurately handle the word of truth” when we speak (2 Timothy 2:15); to know that we are speaking in accordance with God’s will.

  • This idea protects both the liberty of the Christian and the mission of the church. While the church as a collective is bound to operate by its mandate; the Christian is set at liberty to do all good works (as defined by God). We desire then to not exceed what is written (1 Corinthians 4:6), keeping us from going too far (2 John 9) and straying from the truth of God. (see also: 2 Timothy 2:16, 23)

  • We seek to honor the will of God even in how He calls things (1 Corinthians 11:1; Colossians 3:17). Primarily this protects us from being deceived over time by subtle manipulations of meaning. This requires constant vigilance, but it is worth the effort as this moves us always to look to the text and its context to understand the truth and the terms used to define truth(2 Timothy 3:16–17). (see also: Psalm 119:37, 40, 93)
