Past Bible Studies

The Great Ends of the Church


Transitional Pastor Ted Land led a study of The Great Ends of the Church beginning back in September 2020. The Great Ends of the Church are a part of the Foundations of Presbyterianism found in The Book of Order. He explored the Biblical warrants behind each of the Great Ends, how they have been lived in the life of the church in the past, and how they are being lived out today.
