Theology has long recognized the importance of fathers. Increasingly, so does secular science. If fathers have an important job, how should it be done? What does our faith teach us about how to be a good father? Pastor Luke looks at 1 Thessalonians 2:6–12 in “Like a Father.”

Creeds are confessional statements in which Christians try to discern what Holy Scripture teaches about various matters. Like other ancient creeds, the Apostles’ Creed describes God as our ‘Father.’ More recently, some have argued that fatherhood language is patriarchal and problematic. What difference does it make? What’s at stake in the way that Christians refer to God? Pastor Luke teaches from Matthew 7:7–11 in “Father,” the first message in a new series “Article One.”

Father’s Day

Raising children can be incredibly rewarding, but it isn’t always easy. People don’t always succeed as parents, but most people would like to do a good job. Looking at the Bible, it’s clear that even great great men of faith were sometimes really poor fathers. But Scripture actually tells men how to be better dads, and it isn’t even hard. Pastor Luke looks at Colossians 3 in “Father’s Day.”
