Simply Following Christ

1 Timothy

The book of 1 Timothy is the first of the “Pastoral” letters written by Paul.  Paul explains the purpose of the letter in Chapter 3, verse 15:  “so that … you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household”…    This fall, we will be seeking to learn some important principles of proper conduct through this personal letter of an older man to a young man.  Below is a general outline of the passages we will be studying.
