4 CGBC Vision Statement The CGBC Vision~ To TRANSFORM the world for Christ by DEVELOPING a new generation of disciple-leaders who passionately REPLICATE the character, ministry and mission of Jesus Christ.

5 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 1 But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brothers, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.”

6 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 2 And after Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and debate with them, Paul and Barnabas and some of the others were appointed to go up to Jerusalem to the apostles and the elders about this question.

7 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 3 So, being sent on their way by the church, they passed through both Phoenicia and Samaria, describing in detail the conversion of the Gentiles, and brought great joy to all the brothers.

8 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 4 When they came to Jerusalem, they were welcomed by the church and the apostles and the elders, and they declared all that God had done with them.

9 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 5 But some believers who belonged to the party of the Pharisees rose up and said, “It is necessary to circumcise them and to order them to keep the law of Moses.”

10 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 6 The apostles and the elders were gathered together to consider this matter.

11 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 7 And after there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said to them, “Brothers, you know that in the early days God made a choice among you, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe.

12 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 8 And God, who knows the heart, bore witness to them, by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us, 9 and he made no distinction between us and them, having cleansed their hearts by faith.

13 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 10 Now, therefore, why are you putting God to the test by placing a yoke on the neck of the disciples that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?

14 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 11 But we believe that we will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will.” 12 And all the assembly fell silent, and they listened to Barnabas and Paul as they related what signs and wonders God had done through them among the Gentiles.

15 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 13 After they finished speaking, James replied, “Brothers, listen to me. 14 Simeon has related how God first visited the Gentiles, to take from them a people for his name. 15 And with this the words of the prophets agree, just as it is written,

16 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 16 “‘After this I will return, and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen; I will rebuild its ruins, and I will restore it,

17 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 17 that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles who are called by my name, says the Lord, who makes these things 18 known from of old.’

18 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 19 Therefore my judgment is that we should not trouble those of the Gentiles who turn to God, 20 but should write to them to abstain from the things polluted by idols, and from sexual immorality, and from what has been strangled, and from blood.

19 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 21 For from ancient generations Moses has had in every city those who proclaim him, for he is read every Sabbath in the synagogues.”

20 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 22 Then it seemed good to the apostles and the elders, with the whole church, to choose men from among them and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They sent Judas called Barsabbas, and Silas, leading men among the brothers,

21 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 23 with the following letter: “The brothers, both the apostles and the elders, to the brothers who are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia, greetings.

22 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 24 Since we have heard that some persons have gone out from us and troubled you with words, unsettling your minds, although we gave them no instructions,

23 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 25 it has seemed good to us, having come to one accord, to choose men and send them to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, 26 men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

24 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 27 We have therefore sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will tell you the same things by word of mouth. 28 For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements:

25 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 29 that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.”

26 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 30 So when they were sent off, they went down to Antioch, and having gathered the congregation together, they delivered the letter. 31 And when they had read it, they rejoiced because of its encouragement.

27 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 32 And Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets, encouraged and strengthened the brothers with many words.

28 Acts 15:1-35 (ESV) 33 And after they had spent some time, they were sent off in peace by the brothers to those who had sent them. 35 But Paul and Barnabas remained in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of the Lord, with many others also.

29 I.The Spiritual Lesson: Salvation Is By Grace Through Faith Alone

30 Acts 15:1-2 (ESV) 1 But some men came down from Judea and were teaching the brothers, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.”

31 Acts 15:1-2 (ESV) 2 And after Paul and Barnabas had no small dissension and debate with them, Paul and Barnabas and some of the others were appointed to go up to Jerusalem to the apostles and the elders about this question.

32 Acts 15:10-11 (ESV) 10 Now, therefore, why are you putting God to the test by placing a yoke on the neck of the disciples that neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?

33 Acts 15:10-11 (ESV) 11 But we believe that we will be saved through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will.”

34 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV) 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

35 Colossians 1:13-14 (ESV) 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

36 Ephesians 1:7 (ESV) 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,

37 Galatians 3:11 (ESV) 11 Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”

38 Romans 11:36 (ESV) 36 For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

44 II.The Relational Lesson: Provide For Preferences, Protect The Truth

45 Acts 15:19-21 (ESV) 19 Therefore my judgment is that we should not trouble those of the Gentiles who turn to God, 20 but should write to them to abstain from the things polluted by idols, and from sexual immorality, and from what has been strangled, and from blood.

46 Acts 15:19-21 (ESV) 21 For from ancient generations Moses has had in every city those who proclaim him, for he is read every Sabbath in the synagogues.”

73 CGBC’s Values Unity We aspire to be a church that works together. We believe that the gospel has made us one body in Christ (Ephesians 4:3-6; Romans 12:3-5).

74 Ephesians 4:3-6 (ESV) 3 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit— just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—

75 Ephesians 4:3-6 (ESV) 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

76 Romans 12:3-5 (ESV) 3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

77 Romans 12:3-5 (ESV) 4 For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, 5 so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

78 CGBC’s Values Service We aspire to be a church that serves one another. We believe that God wants us to serve one another so that the Body of Christ may grow in unity and maturity (1 Corinthians 14:1-5; Eph. 4:11-13).

79 Corinthians 14:1-5 (ESV) 1 Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. 2 For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit.

80 Corinthians 14:1-5 (ESV) 3 On the other hand, the one who prophesies speaks to people for their upbuilding and encouragement and consolation. 4 The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophesies builds up the church.

81 Corinthians 14:1-5 (ESV) 5 Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be built up.

82 Ephesians 4:11-13 (ESV) 11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,

83 Ephesians 4:11-13 (ESV) 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ,
