Titus 1

In this first installment in our teaching segment on Titus we begin to examine an overall theme in the book: truth matches with godliness and sound doctrine goes hand in hand with good works.

Titus was a young minister whom Paul wrote this epistle (letter) to in approximately 63 A.D. while Titus was on the Island of Crete. In it we see Paul’s heart toward Titus, what credentials a church leader must possess and a strong endorsement to be a Bible centric people. Although at times stern, an understanding of Titus 1 is a strong foundation for those who want to serve God in the Church.
