The Theology of Adoption

With the desire to expose believers to the Scriptural mandate to care for orphans, help them understand why God has issued that call, and give them the ability to discern how God would have them joyfully respond to His call we host an Adoption Bible Study twice a year in our church.

As we look at God and the orphan we cover the following topics: The uniqueness of Christian orphan care, theology of the disenfranchised, the glorious grace of God in adoption, and six truths regarding our adoption by from the book of Romans. In Part 2: God's People and the Orphan we delve into orphans and the gospel, orphans and missions, and lastly hard issues to confront regarding how to be involved in orphan care.

Our desire is to present clearly the Lord's heart for the orphan and to encourage the church to think about how the Lord would have them be involved with orphan care.

We began our fall study this past Sunday evening as part of our Sunday Night Electives. It is not too late to join us! You do not have to attend our church to attend, anyone is welcome.

The study is from October 4 - November 8. Time 6:00pm - 7:15pm

Place: Bethany Baptist Church, 7229 N. Knoxville Ave., Peoria, IL 61614
