In this letter, Paul instructs Timothy on how to address corrupt leaders who are sharing false teachings in the church of Ephesus. This letter addresses leadership, relationships, and service.
Paul makes clear that what a church believes will directly shape how its members live and behave. So the church's theology and beliefs must constantly be critiqued and formed by the Scriptures and good news about Jesus. The church should be known for its devotion to the risen King Jesus as it models integrity, good works, and serving the poor and most vulnerable.
