Theme: Perfecting Holiness

Key Verse: 2 Corinthians 7:1

Theme Explanation:
This year’s theme is “Perfecting Holiness”.  Our theme this year comes from the passage in 2 Corinthians 7:1 and commands that we “cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”

In the verses leading up to our theme verse (6:11-18), Paul is urging the church at Corinth to separate themselves from those of the world.  He even points out in 6:14, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.  For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?”  So Paul concludes his thought in 7:1 by saying that we should get rid of the filthiness and of the flesh and spirit and perfect holiness.  The idea there is to complete the process of setting ourselves aside for the goal of serving God.

Lessons will be presented the first Sunday of each month centered on our theme.
