Being In Christ
, Ephesians 1:3 – 7

Introduction: Christians are often somewhat familiar with doctrines, or Bible teachings, but have very little depth of understanding concerning them. It’s somewhat like swimming. Most people just want to know enough to “get by.” However, to be a good swimmer, one must get into deep water and learn. If a person will do that, they will be able to help themselves, and others also. So it is with the Bible. We want to look at the doctrine of Being In Christ, and hopefully learn about it.
