BIBLE STUDIES

Equipping Frontline Missionaries

Our emphasis this year is Equiping Frontline Missionaries with the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:34-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
 
We are children of God, baptized into His family for His special purpose. We celebrate this renewed identity by living in His call to Mission for eternity. Our faith and witness is nurtured by the Holy Spirit to actively follow Him into the places He is working to redeem and restore His relationships. This Mission starts at home and moves with us wherever we go.
 
We desire to nurture a revolutionary attitude in believers for ministry in a world that has minimized churches yet seeks an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ and His people. We encourage spiritual formation and authentic community while engaging our culture with God’s love and truth through Jesus Christ.
 
Our Bible studies and small groups support this church wide emphasis. Together we nurture relationships where God’s love prevails through:

1. The Bible where the saving love of God for us in Jesus Christ is revealed

2. Prayer were our hearts align with God

3. People whom He sends us out to meet and share the the life-saving message of Jesus Christ

 
Christian life is a journey. Jesus leads and we follow. For the journey, we’ve been given a roadmap called the Bible. Prince of Peace offers a wide array of Bible studies each Sunday and throughout the week.

The Meaning of Marriage

Do you have a soul mate? Is romance the most important part of marriage? Is divorce the best solution when your needs are not met or conflict appears in your home? According to the Bible, these assumptions miss what marriage is all about.

The Meaning of Marriage neither idealizes nor rejects the sacred union. It points us to the relationship between God and man. The result is a vision for marriage that is refreshingly frank and unsentimental, yet hopeful and beautiful. The cost for the book is $15.
