First Christian Church
First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.
The writings of the apostle Peter continue in book of Second Peter. This epistle was written in 66 AD, shortly before Peter’s martyrdom. It is Peter’s final word to believers before his death by crucifixion. The subject matter of his second letter shifts from the message of hope for believers during times of suffering in his first epistle, to the approaching apostasy of the church. Peter was writing to expose, stop and defeat false teachers. This letter is his instructions on how to prepare for these false teachers, and the eventual apostasy.
