Study Introduction

Wrapping up over a thousand teachings through God’s Word, Pastor Tom Fuller gives us the 10 things each Christian should know and practice in order to have a full rich life as a follower of Jesus Christ.

There are three reactions to immediate stress in our lives: flight, fight, or freeze. Paul the Apostle uses those three in giving the Thessalonians and us some sound advice on what to do in times of crisis.

What do many of the people surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus have in common? It might surprise you and give you hope when challenges seem to overwhelm you.

Who is the Antichrist, how does he come on the scene, what will he be like and how does he shape up against the Lord Jesus? An important and timely topic in a world very much on the brink of major change.

How can you tell whether your faith is flourishing or languishing? Paul gives us two keys to unlock the secret of doing well as a believer, along with some warnings for those who reject the gospel.

Want to know the four keys to success as a Christian and in a church? Paul lays them out in abbreviated fashion at the end of 1 Thessalonians. Get ready to be encouraged and challenged!

What’s the state of the world today? Are we moving towards peace and security or what? And what should Christians do in light of current events. Pastor Tom explores this as we study Paul’s letter to anxious Thessalonians.

What happens after death? Do you know? Do you care? If you have ever experienced the death of a loved one you have thought about it. Today Pastor Tom Fuller brings us an insightful message on what to expect if you are a Christian, and what to dread if you have not trusted Jesus.

Having restrain - doing only the things you want to do - is something we’d all like to aspire to. The problem is that this is easier said than done. Today Pastor Tom Fuller offers some theological as well as practical advice on how to be the person you want to be.

You might not be aware of it (in fact you probably are not) but there are three plots against every Christian being hatched against you. In this study we identify what those tactics are of Satan, and what to do about them.
