Didactic Ministries is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization dedicated to teaching people about the Bible and Christianity. We support Christian evangelism and discipleship by providing educational products and services to individuals, schools and congregations.
This ministry promotes a biblical worldview based on the belief (1) that God is the all-powerful, all-knowing Creator and Ruler of the universe, (2) that the Bible is accurate in all that it teaches, (3) that salvation is a gift that cannot be earned, and (4) that Christians have a responsibility to share their faith with others.
Our goal is to help people understand the Bible, so they can make informed decisions about spiritual issues. We provide a wide range of educational seminars, sermons and Bible studies for groups within the USA. We also provide mentoring and answers to Bible related questions (as time permits).
For many years, there has been a growing interest in the Hebraic roots of Christianity. Many conservative, biblical scholars have gained a deeper appreciation of the role of the Old Testament in the life of the early Christian Church and the value of the Torah in Christian sanctification and discipleship. We work to share this information in an interesting and understandable format.
We recognize the inspiration and authority of both the Old and New Testament but oppose the use of the Oral Law for deciding matters of faith and practice within the Christian Church. While the writings of ancient rabbis may provide useful background information about the New Testament, Jesus firmly rejected the traditions of the elders and warned His disciples to avoid the leaven of Pharisaic doctrine (Matt 16:5-12, Mark 7:6-9).
We explain how to apply the Torah in a modern, Western culture. We follow well established principles of biblical interpretation and carefully avoid the twin ditches of legalism and antinomianism. We also avoid the numerous, lunatic fringe issues that plague many groups today such as End Times prediction addiction, Kabbalah mysticism and wacky conspiracy theories.
TEACHING THE WORD OF GOD
One of our goals is to provide Christians with a place to keep the seventh-day Sabbath and biblical festivals in a spiritually enriching environment. We sponsor adult Bible studies and children's Sabbath School lessons in Woodbridge and Reston VA; we would consider additional locations in northern VA based on the level of interest. Please contact us if you would like more information or are interested in participating in this program.
Have you ever wondered why most churches observe Sunday, Christmas and Easter while Jesus and the apostles observed the seventh day Sabbath and the Passover? And, why do most churches claim that the Mosaic Law has been abolished when Jesus and the apostles taught the exact opposite (Matt 5:17-20, Rom 3:31)?
Understanding the role of the Law of Moses and the Covenants is essential for salvation, and we offer a free 8-part video series dealing with this important issue.
