Through the Bible (1 Corinthians 1)
16 March 2011
1 Corinthians 1
As we begin a new book tonight, we spend some time learning about the historical city of Corinth. Often called Carnal Corinth, the church in this city faced some serious challenges. Paul begins his letter with greetings to the church, commendations for the things they were doing well, a challenge to unity and encouragement regarding their position as believers.
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
