TEN World Changers

"The Ten Who changed the World" looks at missionaries and leaders who followed God in faith and the repercussions of that following faith which are still being felt today. The lives of most believers rarely escape the routine schedules, routine interests, the familiarity of life. But the trajectory of our faith should be one that is constantly sending us outward to unfamiliar places, uncomfortable environments, and new challenges. All due to a message that God first extended to us…so we may extend that same message to others. For a chosen few who have allowed the familiar to take a backseat and followed God with faith He has changed the world. 

The Ten Who have Changed the World is by no means an exhaustive list of men and women who have dared to follow God, but hopefully will be enough of a list that we too may desire to lay aside our fear and follow God in faith. From Edmond to Everywhere.

Explore the Bible Series: Acts

Winter 2017-18: Acts 13-28
Acts is the second part of a two-volume work by the same writer. He did not identify himself by name; however, clues within the book and it's connection to the Gospel of Luke have led most evangelical Bible scholars to conclude that Luke, and physician and missionary associate of Paul, wrote both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts. He addressed both works to one named Theophilus, and in Acts 1:1-2 he referred to the Gospel as his "first narrative" about "all that Jesus began to do and teach" until He ascended to heaven. At the end of Luke's Gospel, the apostles are told to remain in the city until they are clothed with power. At the beginning of Acts we find them waiting in Jerusalem as instructed. Acts is a sequel to the Third Gospel.

This study is open to everyone and also great for anyone who wants to get a head start on the Connection Group lesson for the upcoming Sunday morning Bible study or if you will be out and don’t want to miss a lesson. 

  • Led by Jerry Miller
  • Meet in Room 201 located on the second floor above the main Church Office.

Loving God and Others: The Heart of True Faith

What Does God Really Want from You? It’s easy to get confused about how to please God. One Bible teacher details a long list of the commands you should be keeping. The next teacher says only grace matters. Who is right?

Centuries ago, in answer to this question, Jesus simplified all the rules and regulations of the Law into just two great commands: love God and love people.

Loving God and Others looks at how these two commands define the heart of Christian faith. As you rest in the certain knowledge of what God calls you to, you will be challenged to live these commands out - and discover how obeying Jesus’ simple commands will transform not only your life but also the lives of those around you.

  • Led by the efbcWOMEN Leadership Team, you may join this class at any time.
