Ironman Bible Study
6:00am – 7:15am
Location: , Sterling, VA 20165
Proverbs 27:17 "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another".
2 Timothy 2:2 "The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesseses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also."
This two verses vividly illustrate the heart of discipleship envisioned for the local church. The pinnacle of Christian maturity is not simply a head full of orthodox doctrine. Nor is it a well-ordered, Christian walk that's only concerned about oneself and one's immediate family. Christian maturity demonstrates itself by a knowlege of sound doctrine, obedient living, and a love for Christ that skillfully brings the Word of God to others in evangelistic outreach, establishment, and Christian growth. In other words, mature Christians are not cul-de-sacs of sound doctrine, but conduits of God's grace to others' lives, maturing and multiply disciples in fulfillment of the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20).
The Ironman Bible study is for those men who are willing and able to invest their time and energy into becoming mature, disciple-making disciples.
Particular attention will be given to: sharpening conviction of sound doctrine; refining character that accompanies a true understanding of sound doctrine; and training in various ministry capabilities to speak and minister God's Truth skillfully in the lives of others.
Starting in September, the Ironman Bible study will begin meeting weekly for approximately one-hour, with an additional hour of homework/preparation in between.
We invite all men who are serious and interested to be a part of this focused time of discipleship and training. For more information about the Ironman Bible Study, please email Pastor Jeff Casali: firstname.lastname@example.org
