Thank you for joining us for this series about Social Media Ministries. Hopefully, you are familiar with our Mission and what we are working to accomplish. In this video, we dig into one of our core beliefs and values.
We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God. That includes both the Old Testament and the New Testament. They are both written revelations directly from God. These words are alive, active, infallible, and were written for our benefit.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
1 Thessalonians 2:13
Hey everyone, my name is Spencer Coffman with Social Media Ministries. Welcome to the About Us video series. Today we are talking about our first core belief and value, and it is that the Bible is the divinely inspired word of God.
We believe that the Bible was divinely inspired. God gave it as a revelation to humankind, these humans wrote it down and it is alive and active, it is the living Word of God and God wrote each and every word in the Bible, both the Old and the New Testament were written revelations from God to man or to humans, to mankind. It is living, it is active, it is infallible, it is our owner’s manual for life, it is our guide to life. You read this book, you stay in the Word and your life will be a lot easier than if you neglect this.
Now as I said in our introduction or our overview video of our core beliefs, each one of our core beliefs is supported by a few verses or some scripture. Now for all of you logical fallacy people out there, you believe that you can’t use something to support something else. We’re not. We’re not going in that direction. That’s a rabbit hole we are not going to chase.
We believe that the Word of God is living and active. That the Bible is divinely inspired. If that is something you don’t believe, you can comment below, you can find evidence somewhere else, you can go elsewhere. If you do believe that, then keep watching and listening and we hope that we can reach you. If you don’t believe this that you will be able to at least open up your mind, take a look at the Bible, and understand why it is that we believe that this is the divinely inspired word of God.
We have a couple of core verses that go with this. Number one is 2 Timothy 3:16-17, ‘All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.’
Now we take that to heart and we use that. We need to say, hey this Bible is useful for us to help other people, so when we preach our sermons they come from the Bible. We preach right out of the Bible because it is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, and that it equips us as servants of God for every good work.
The next verse that we have is 1 Thessalonians 2:13, ‘And we also thank God continually because when you receive the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it. Not as human word, but as it actually is the word of God which is indeed at work in you who believe.’
It’s basically worth thanking God all the time. When you receive the word of God through one of our sermons, through someone else, it doesn’t even have to be from us, but the verse says from us because you accepted it not as just words from us, from Social Media Ministries or from some other church, but you took it as the word of God.
You understand that any verses or scripture that we present to you is more than us, it doesn’t come from us, it is coming from God. It is the divinely inspired Word of God and it is going to you and you accept it as it is, as the living and active Word of God which is at work in you who believes in God.
So if that’s something you believe in, if you believe in the Bible, or if you want to know more about it and you can get behind that, then we hope that you will follow us on social media. That you will support us. That you will pray for us that we can accomplish our mission each and every day. That we can reach more people and that means if you want to help out with that feel free to follow us on social media, comment on our videos, like our videos, subscribe to our channels.
In addition, pray for us also. We would love to have your financial support as well because we have great things that we want to do and it takes money to get there. So if that is something that you would like to do, all of that is available on our website. You can check everything out in the description below. Thank you.
