Only Teach the Word of the Lord

Timothy was the preacher for the church at Ephesus, and you will notice that his work not only included preaching to the lost, but he had an obligation to the church also, “As I urged you when I went into Macedonia–remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith” (1Timothy 1:3-4).
It is not enough for us to bring people to Christ, but we must work to keep them in Christ. What are you doing in your congregation to ensure that new converts remain faithful to Jesus and that they not follow false doctrine?
