Through the Bible (1 Peter 4)

09 January 2013



1 Peter 4


We saw in this study that the struggle in the Christian life is part of the sanctifying process that God uses to refine and purify us. Instead of seeking to avoid suffering, the Christian is to embrace it for God’s glory. Peter exhorted us to possess clear thinking and spiritual-mindedness in the midst of our trials and to be given fervently to Christian love and service, following Christ’s example.

Senior Pastor
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.
