Pastor Tim’s Sunday Morning Study – 1 John 4:1-6

John wrote his first epistle to the churches in Asia Minor late in his life.  His concern for these churches was as if he was their own father.  False teachings claiming that Jesus was not the Son of God and that He died as a mere man were being introduced by certain gnostic teachers and John's 1st epistle directly confronts this false teaching with the truth of God's Word.  John was a masterful writer and wrote a beautiful letter that builds on itself as it spirals up and grows with each chapter.  This epistle is as pertinent today for us given the falsehood we face as Christians as it was for the people of John's day.

About the speaker

Tim Wendelin
Pastor of Care

Hi, I’m Pastor Tim. I’ve been a part of the Bethlehem family my entire life, 58 years and counting! Born, raised, and educated at Bethlehem’s day school, I went on to high school and then to college in the Denver area. I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines with a Master’s degree in Physics and have worked for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for 36 years. Yes, that’s a long time, but I have enjoyed every minute of it. Several years ago, I felt a pull to the ministry and so went back to school as a student at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. In early 2016, I was ordained and called as a pastor here at Bethlehem my home church. My wonderful wife Sandy, whom I met here at Bethlehem 28 years ago also serves here at Bethlehem as our Director of Discipleship. My main ministry focus is pastoral care and visitation. For now, I work full time as a research engineer at NREL and part time at Bethlehem providing visitation and pastoral care to those in care centers, rehabilitation facilities, hospitals and homes. I also assist with worship on Sunday mornings, teach Bible study and sing with our contemporary worship teams. In my spare time I spend time with my wife and golf. There is a reason I have been at Bethlehem my entire life. This wonderful faith community is my extended family and I pray it can be yours too. May you find the love and gifts of Christ here at Bethlehem!
