Book of the Month
September’s book of the month is Profiting From the Word by A. W. Pink ($6). This book includes ten chapters about the effects that Bible reading ought to have on the Christian’s life. It is an excellent supplement to what our church will be learning through Build and Wellspring in the coming months. Please see the booktable servants for a reading guide with a suggested one-month reading plan.
Restoration and Church Discipline (Matthew 18:15-17)
Jesus directs the church to patiently and gently pursue its sinning believers that they may be won back from their sin. In cases where the professing Christian refuses to repent of sin, Jesus directs the church to remove the unrepentant one from the church family and fellowship. GBC practices church discipline as prescribed by its bylaws in accordance with Matthew 18:15-17. Regular attendance at GBC is considered affirmation of this biblical practice. If you have any questions regarding church discipline please listen to our sermon titled “The Heart of Christ for our Holiness” located on our website (www.gbcaz.org/sermon/111013-sermon/). The elders are also available to answer any questions.
