Even areas like working, playing, and social media are considered based on the counsel of God's Word. We'll see that all of life should be affected by the reality of Christ's death and resurrection.

This series through 1 and 2 Corinthians shows us how the cross should affect everything about the Christian life. Paul addresses everything from suffering to sexual immorality to marriage to leadership to spiritual gifts to the resurrection, and a number of topics in between. Because the Corinthians were being lured by the wisdom of the world, Paul had to remind them that there is no room for pride or divisiveness for those who belong to a crucified Savior. We continue to need this cross-shaped message in our own day.

What should the church, the family of faith, be about? David Platt and the pastors at The Church at Brook Hills walk the church through the following purpose statement: We glorify God by making disciples of all nations. This four-part series breaks down each aspect of that purpose statement, and as we'll see, every member of the church was meant to be a disciple-maker.

As followers of Christ, we are recipients of a new covenant. He has bought us with His blood and sealed our salvation for all of eternity. As a result of each of us being in Christ, we are also members of a new community. In a very real sense, we belong to each other. The covenant that unites us to God also unites us to one another. This separates the church—the body of Christ—from any other institution, organization, club, or relationship that we might have. We literally have an eternal bond with one another. In God's covenant with us, He has designed a covenant community that will display His character to a watching world.

The series from I Timothy gives us the instructions for the community of believers. We begin by looking at the components of our earthly worship. We learn that our worship is an expression of a heavenly assembly. Then we'll move further into the lessons on worship by seeing the characteristics of our devotion to God and how this should affect the earthly outpost of the heavenly kingdom we know as “the church." There's a lot to consider as we move into this important teaching with David Platt.

The IMPACT sermon series reveals the biblical basis for commitment to membership in the local church and the missional purpose for that membership. A personal commitment to the local body of believers, the church is consistently revealed throughout the New Testament. Defining the Church as the people for whom Christ died and the people that are created by the salvation which Christ brings, Dr. Platt explores the scriptural picture of the local church. In his teaching he emphasizes the importance of a personal membership commitment in the local church and the biblical directive for the local body of believers to worship biblically, make disciples and have a global impact by sharing the gospel message.

From beginning to end, from creation to new creation, the Bible is telling God's story of redemption. This year-long series takes us from Genesis to Revelation in order to help us see that all of Scripture points to Jesus Christ as the climax of God's saving purposes for all nations.

For years, the people of God were looking for the promise of redemption, the long-awaited King who would save His people from their sins. At Christmas, we celebrate that reality that this King, indeed has come. In this series, we will explore six passages of Scripture that reference why Jesus came to earth. In the process, we will realize that the deepest needs of our lives and the deepest longings of our hearts are only met in the One who came to us.

He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments” (Psalm 78:5-7). Throughout Scripture, God has instructed His people to pass His Word on from generation to generation. As His people in our day, we want to be faithful to this command – for our good and the good of children across our community, for God's glory in succeeding generations, and for the spread of the gospel to all nations. We want to explore the biblical foundations that must undergird all that we do. If we merely create nice programs and enjoyable activities for children and students, but we ignore God's design for the home and God's commands to the church, we will miss the point altogether. During these nine weeks, we will explore God's Word to men, women, husbands, wives, moms, dads, singles, and senior adults in order to know how together we can most effectively pass the gospel on to the next generation.

From the first to the last verse of the book of James, God gives us one of the most practical pictures of the Christian faith in all the Bible. Written to a people who were scattered and suffering, James envisions communities of faith caring, providing, and praying for one another as they show what the life of Christ looks like in action. Possibly more than any other New Testament book, this letter from James lifts our lives far above the superficial religious formalities we are so prone to settle for and sets our sights on active, authentic faith that makes a radical difference in the needs of the world around us.

More than any other book in the New Testament, the book of Acts provides us with a clear picture of how the early church made disciples in obedience to the command of Christ and multiplied churches in order to advance the kingdom of Christ. This series challenges individuals and churches to put aside traditions, comforts, preferences, and programs in order to follow the example of the early church as they beheld the glory of Christ, relied upon the Spirit of Christ, and proclaimed the gospel of Christ.

In Secret Church 13 David Platt looks at the sobering realities of death, judgment, and hell, as well as the believer's ultimate hope of heaven. What happens after we die? When will Christ return? What kind of body will we have at the resurrection? Is hell a literal reality? What will heaven be like? What is the millennium? These are the kinds of questions covered in this study, but not so that we can simply satisfy our curiosity: the goal is to persevere in hope and to realize the urgency and gravity of the mission that God has given to His people.

In Secret Church 15 David Platt addresses the critical social issues of our day from the standpoint of the gospel. The issues of abortion, orphan and widow care, poverty, slavery, sexuality, ethnicity and immigration, liberty and persecution, and—the greatest injustice of all—the fact that there are still people groups who have little or no access to the gospel, are addressed based on the authority of God's Word. Rather than compromise, followers of Christ must hold fast to the teaching of Scripture and engage these issues with conviction, compassion, and courage.

In Secret Church 12 David Platt deals with the ever-present reality of suffering from the standpoint of the cross. This study offers a biblical theology of suffering, covering 75 key texts from Genesis to Revelation. The problem of evil and the reality of pain are faced head-on. Whether it's a doctor's diagnosis, persecution from the government, or a personal struggle with loneliness and depression, followers of Christ can rely on the sovereignty and goodness of God. The hope of the gospel sustains us through every form of suffering.

In Secret Church 1 David Platt examines a rather large portion of the Bible that many Christians find confusing and even intimidating—the Old Testament. This study looks at the Old Testament in its literary, historical, and theological dimensions, and it offers a survey of all 39 books. As we'll see, there's more here than a collection of good moral principles and examples. The God-inspired words of the Old Testament point us to Christ, to His church, and to God's plan for all nations.

The literary, historical, and theological dimensions of the New Testament will be examined in this survey.

In Secret Church 3 David Platt provides a condensed training course in how to study the Bible. We'll consider why this one book is so critical to our faith, and we'll get answers to questions like, Why do we study the Bible? Who can study the Bible? How do we study the Bible? To answer this last question, a dependable approach to studying the Bible is explained and then applied to the different genres—letters, Gospels, parables, narratives, etc.—of Scripture.

In Secret Church 4 David Platt looks to Scripture to answer a question that is relevant for every person on the planet—Who is God? We'll examine what Scripture says about the names of God, the attributes of God, and the mysteries of God (such as the Trinity, God's sovereign will, and the problem of evil). Nothing is more important than knowing and glorifying the God who has created us and made us His own through Jesus Christ.

In Secret Church 5 David Platt explores Scripture's teaching on the third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit. After looking at the mystery behind the Spirit's identity, as well as the way the Spirit has been viewed historically by the church, this study focuses on the person and work of the Spirit. Finally, a number of significant issues related to the Spirit are addressed: blasphemy against the Spirit, baptism in the Spirit, filling with the Spirit, and the gifts of the Spirit (i.e., prophecy, tongues, healing).

In Secret Church 6 David Platt examines the cross of Christ from a number of different angles. We'll consider the reality of the cross (Scripture's teaching on the circumstances surrounding Christ's crucifixion), the history of the cross (the ways in which the cross has been understood throughout church history), the meaning of the cross, the journey to the cross (during Christ's final hours), the intent of the cross, and the effects of the cross. We'll see why our salvation and all of history is determined by the death of Christ over two thousand years ago.
