Sometimes the opinions and beliefs of the world around us—culture, religion, and even our own experiences—may feel like truth. But when they don’t align with scripture, how can we find the will to release those beliefs and cling to the unchanging word of God? He welcomes our doubts and concerns, and we can find safety, clarity, and restoration in Him! Find out how to contend for the faith and stay anchored to God amid the storms of life.

Matthew 24:6-14 NIV
“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, BUT THE ONE WHO STANDS FIRM TO THE END WILL BE SAVED.”

Matthew 24:10-14 NIV
Many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, BUT THE ONE WHO STANDS FIRM TO THE END WILL BE SAVED.”

DECONSTRUCTION = A tearing down of what has been constructed; A growing disenchantment with at least some of the beliefs one grew up with; A redefining of Christian faith; A leaving of the faith

Top 5 Reasons for Deconstruction

  1. Painful Experience with Church
  • Poor Teaching
  • Wanting to sin without guilt
  • Wanting to be liked

Matthew 13:20-21 NIV
The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

  • Demonic influence

There are a lot of people leaving CHRISTIANITY when they just need to leave THAT CHURCH

“Ecclesia reformata, semper reformanda” // The Church reformed and always being reformed

Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended to the dead; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Hebrews 2:1 NIV
We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.
