AKINA Community Church


 
Welcome to
 
AKINA Communty Church
 
AKINA is an Ojibwe word for “everyone”. At Akina
 
 Community Church everyone is welcome; all ages,
 
cultures and backgrounds. We gather every week to
 
do what is difficult to do on our own and that is to
 
honor our Creator by giving our full attention (our
 
mind, heart & soul) to Him. We were never meant to
 
walk this trail alone but together. It is our desire that
 
Akina would be a place where you can connect with
 
God and others on this journey. We meet every
 
Sunday 10:45am. We look forward to meeting you.

The Whole Bible

Read Jeremiah 40:1 through 42:22; 2 Timothy 3:1–17

From infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).

The apostle Paul wrote these words to a young minister that he mentored and loved as a son. Timothy’s mother was a Jew, and apparently she made sure her son was given a firm foundation through exposure to the Law and the Prophets, our Old Testament.

The New Testament we have today was not yet recognized as Scripture or even complete when Paul wrote to Timothy. The Scriptures that could make one “wise for salvation” that Paul was referring to was the Old Testament.

Sometimes Christians bypass Old Testament books as though they have little importance for today. However, these books point to Christ and His salvation. Having a solid Old Testament foundation paves the way for a better understanding of the New.

How is your knowledge of the Old Testament? Do you know what it has to say about Christ? Have you searched the prophets in order to apply their wisdom and truths to your walk with God?

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, help me to study all of Your Word in a balanced way.

--Quicklook: 2 Timothy 3:10–16 --
