Since the giving of the Great Commission, the ultimate responsibility of the church has been to proclaim the Gospel to every end of the earth and to transform the believer’s inward character in order to manifest the character of Christ. We are not called to help people find themselves. The church is not a social community where we all “live our best lives now”. We’re not here to design programs and ministries that make us rich or bring us popularity and fame. The church has been designed and empowered by God to teach and instruct biblical truth so that people are transformed in their motives, desires, activities, and attitudes in order to become more and more like Christ. The church’s mission is to teach every believer sound biblical doctrine in order to build up corporate maturity so that we all may minister and serve one another in love.

A blog can serve many purposes, but at its core a blog is meant to provide information and knowledge on various topics for a target audience. In starting a blog at Twin Cities Bible Church, we want to focus the blog on what is really important: ministering to our local church body and giving glory to God. With those motives in place, the blog ministry purpose became crystal clear: to edify those in our local body and glorify the Lord Jesus by teaching His truth with clarity and passion

Our Perfect King image

Last time we looked at the second chapter of Luke’s gospel where the angel Gabriel tells Mary that she will conceive in her womb and bear a son (Luke 2:31). But what we didn’t look at was the second half of Gabriel’s message to Mary where he declares that Jesus will also be king:

“He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end” (Luke 2:32-33).
