The first responsibility of the church and its Pastors and Teachers is to faithfully teach and preach the word of God. This is how the Body grows!
Matt. 28:20 “…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”
Acts 2:42 “They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching…
Acts 5:42 “Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.”
I Cor. 1:21 “…God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.”
II Tim. 4:1-5 “…I give you this charge: Preach the Word; ... For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”
