James expressed it this way,
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says(bold mine.) Anyone who listens to the word but does not dowhat it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. (James 1:22, NIV, bold mine)
Our five core Theology & Practice courses examine the biblical theology for why the church exists as found in Acts 2:42-47. This beautiful passage portrays how these early Christians spent their time and energies. Our five core courses are Theology and Practice of . . . worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and evangelism/missions. Students develop a systematic biblical understanding of theology, but they also learn how to put those biblical foundations into practice in their unique ministry context.
Pastors and church ministers are called to lead others. People need to know “why,” but they also must be taught “how.” It is important to tell believers to be engaged in discipleship, evangelism, and the other tasks of the Church, but unless leaders give people the tools for practicing their faith, doctrinal teaching will have little impact on the lives of others.
We spray our sunbursts directly onto the wood as opposed to tinting the finish and having the stain sit on top of the wood. Here’s a close up of a Red Spruce top that shows how the stain naturally soaks into the wood grains.
Every year we build guitars that are gifts from one person to another. Often times the gift needs to be “given” before the guitar is even started, so the lucky receiver can decide what they want. Would you rather be gifted a guitar ready for you to design, or a finished guitar ready for you to strum?
As we approach the end of another year and with that also the end of another school year, many may be asking what’s the next step?
