New Hope UMC


This is a course designed and presented by Pastor Matt Moore for Right Now Media. It is Paul's letter to young Timothy who is been left in charge of the church at Ephesus. Paul is warning him about false teachings in the church and advising him on what to do. This course is designed to help you understand the book of 1 Timothy. Paul wrote this letter to Timothy to encourage and equip him as he pastored the church in Ephesus. At a time when the United Methodist Church is split apart over doctrinal issues, our church is in grounding in Christian doctrines. Paul helps Timothy identify those and can do so for us. 

The course consists of short videos, usually 5 to 10 minutes. There are 16 of those. 

The Global Message of 1 Timothy. Paul’s first letter to Timothy is filled with practical instructions about the life of the local church. Yet all this practical instruction is rooted in the gospel (1 Tim. 1:5, 15), and is intended to promote godliness and to spread the message of salvation to all people (2:1–7; 3:1–13; 4:10).

New Hope is not starting over, but we are reviewing and reexperiencing the reason we are here in the first place. We will become affiliated with the Global Methodist Church which will follow the teaching doctrinal instructions of founder John Wesley. First Timothy helps us get back to those roots.
