Rob Reinow Session Notes D62013

In the early church family ministry was not just parenting ministry.

2 Timothy 3:14-17
The Bible is true; and it is enough.

Teaching - how to think right
reproof - how not to think wrong
Correction - how not to act wrong
training in righteousness - how to act right

Four levels of scripture

1. Doctrine - the truth of God
2. Righteousness - the will of God
3. Methodology - the ways of God
4. Jurisdiction - the call of God

The Jurisdiction Principle
When a larger jurisdiction usurps responsibility from a lesser jurisdiction
1. the crisis will not be solved
2. the proper jurisdiction is robbed of motivation, time. and resources to do the job

3 theological foundations
1.  the sufficiency of scripture
2. the doctrine of jurisdiction
3. the patterns and commands for the early church. given to us by God in the Bible, sre to be followed by us today

Children were included in the corporate worship service of the early church
There is scripture for every ministry in our churches. I tried to capture everything mentioned; here are the examples used below.
-Colossians 3
-Ephesians 6
-Acts 20
-Titus 2:4-5
-Titus 1
-1Timothy 3

Global Missions begins with Genesis 1:28... "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth..."

How does evangelism fit into family ministry?
- The early church shared their faith in the marketplace
- The early church shared their faith in their home, through meals and hospitality
