The Apostle Paul sends his young protégé Timothy to the church in Ephesus with a specific mission: Teach God’s Word and bring the church back to health, sound doctrine, and the power of the gospel.
The letter of 1 Timothy is Paul writing to encourage and equip Timothy for that mission. Today, this great letter still stands as the blueprint for what a healthy church looks like and how it behaves. Any church would be wise to study this letter and apply its principles to the body of Christ for the most significant impact within the Kingdom of God.
1 Timothy is refreshingly practical and tenaciously gospel-centered. It’s a manual for pastors and Christians on how a healthy church must behave in a godless culture for God’s name to be glorified and for people to experience Christ through his Church.
