1 Thessalonians Part 2 – The Reason For Perseverance – That They May Be Saved

Reverend Phil Simmonds


“Chapter 2 of 1 Thessalonians, provides us with a unique insight of what it meant to be part of a “new” church plant during the early pioneering mission work of the New Testament Church. It reveals the truly testing and threatening circumstances facing the newly established Church – and the attitude required of both Pastor and congregation to persevere. The reason for doing so – to be a Gospel witness for Christ, and to become the means by which the gentiles may be saved. Is this also our reason for being His Church? “
