Pillars of Christian Faith

Pillars of Reformed Christian Faith is an examination of the biblical truths that inform and instruct believers about what they should believe and how they should live. Class meetings begin with a lecture by R.C. Sproul from his famous series, Foundations; An Overview of Systematic Theology, and continue with discussion in seminar format.

The general subjects of Parts I and II were God’s revelation and God’s nature. The general subject of Part III is sin and redemption, comprising lectures entitled Angels & Demons, The Creation of Man, The Nature of Sin, Original Sin, Transmission of Sin, The Covenants, The Christ of the Bible, The Christ of the Creeds, The Names of Christ, The States of Christ, The Offices of Christ, The Substitutionary Atonement, Why Did Christ Die?, and The Extent of the Atonement.

The Book of Acts (Begins January 21)

The Book of Acts was written by Luke—with the Apostle Paul’s extensive assistance—to defend Paul on the occasion of his pending trial before Nero and to bring the most important news in world history to the capital of the Empire, to the Roman hierarchy, to Nero himself, and to the Gentile world. (Acts 20:24 23:11, 25:10-11, 26:32,27:24).

This class, taught by First Pres member John Mauck, meets in the Dining Room. It will provide the following takeaways:

New understanding of how Acts can help us understand the present-day conflicts over Jewishness, Islam, Christianity, and American political, social and moral issues.

New evidence for the resurrection of Jesus, and the historicity of Acts.

John Mauck is a long time teacher at FPCE, a lawyer, and the author of the award winning Paul on Trial which, together with the Bible, will be the texts for the anticipated 23 Winter and Spring class sessions.

Specific meeting dates of the class are posted in the online calendar.

The adult education class on the Book of Acts will begin January 21 and meets in the Dining Room.
