Equip Bible Study - 1 Corinthians - How to be the Church

A Conversations study of the book of 1 Corinthians



Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth provides a vital read for all who want to understand how to be the Church. Though written to a particular church, in a particular place, at a particular time in the history of the Church, 1 Corinthians is universal in its application, and is essential reading for all who want to understand how to be the people of God in their context.

The closeness of Paul’s relationship with the church established in Corinth, and his sense of responsibility for them, is clear throughout 1 Corinthians. 1 Corinthians is a wonderful reminder that there is no perfect church and takes away any notion that church was ever easy and without difficulty! Among other topics, Paul deals with division, pride, immorality, false doctrine, church services, and spiritual gifts. But while the topics covered are specific to the church in Corinth, they raise wider principles that the Church has found useful throughout the centuries.
