Central Passage
Jude 1-5
Description

Overview of service:

Jude, the half brother of Jesus wrote to the Christian believers about contending for the faith that had once been delivered to them. We know that this epistle was directed at the children of of God because Jude states, "to them that are sanctified by God the Father and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called." The Word of God was written for the children of God (those who have been called out of this world into the work and family of God), and the children of God are to take it to the world. 

To be sanctified is to be set apart. So to be santified in Christ is to be set apart from the things of this world and to be focused on Jesus Christ Himself. Sanctification is the process of becoming more like God. Christians to to seek God for santification. Only He can rid us of the sin in our lives. 

The common salvation is the same salvation for everyone (the Jew, the Gentile white, black, etc.) Salvation is for everyone.

Jude found it necessary to write to the children of God to contend for the faith that was once delivered unto the saints. The faith of today's church is not the same faith that was delivered to the early church. Jude is exhorting us to fight for the faith that once was. If we had the faith of the early church, shouldn't we ernestly contend to do what God wants us to do?

From the Pastor

   "Freedom Worship Center"

Our foundation is laid upon the principles of biblical holiness. Even before the church experienced the outpouring of the Holy Ghost, it's roots were set in the holiness revival of the past century.  It was and is, a holiness church--holiness in fact and holiness in name. The passing of 18 years has not diminished our holiness position or convictions. The years have, instead, strengthened our knowledge that without holiness it is impossible to please God. We hereby remind ourselves that the Scriptures enjoin us at all times to examine our own hearts. Conditions of our day desperately require it. The basic doctrines of the church have remained constant since the inception of the church."

  --ONE NATION UNDER GOD--

  God's law is supreme, however we are to obey the laws of our country insofar as they are not in conflict with obedience to God (Acts 5:29). When it becomes necessary to disagree with practices and requirements of government, we should do so out of a concern for the promotion of righteousness and not out of delight in discord and controversy.
