In 1st Tim
1:15-16, Christ started a pattern of how all people, not just
Israel, can choose to be saved, and Paul was the first to follow
that pattern of Christ's.
The pattern is the last 6 words of 1st Tim 1:16, "believe on him to life everlasting.
The pattern is good news, not a person. The pattern followers are the body of Christ.
Pattern shown first in Paul for all of us who will follow Christ,
after Paul, by believing on Christ to life everlasting, as Paul
did in 1st Cor.15:1-4.
Christ died for your sins, trust Him to save you to life everlasting.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
It is the basic goal of "Follow Christ's Pattern" to make known and preach these several things:
God's only declared means of saving all people today, from his wrath, is by the gospel of the grace of God, found clearly presented in First Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:20-25; Ephesians 1:7-14; Ephesians 2:4-13; Ephesians 3:1-10;
We believe in the inerrancy and authority of the "pure," "preserved" word of God in the King James Version of the holy Bible.according to Psalms 12:6-7;
We believe the basic doctrines of the Christian faith being the "Godhead" of Father, Word/Son, and Holy Ghost/HolySpirit; also the deity and virgin birth of Jesus, also the death, bodily resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ, also the inerrancy and authority of the written word of God; also the unique calling, separation, apostleship and ministry of "THE apostle of the Gentiles, Paul, the salvation of all who trust Christ that he died for all their sins and was resurrected for their justification, also the new creation body of Christ and its pattern, catching up, and reigning with Christ in heaven; also the birthing, current casting away, and future gathering of Israel to "head" Christ's earthly kingdom coming from heaven; also the return of Christ to earth to reign on earth from Israel.
We teach the rightly dividing of Paul's gospel and doctrine for the body of Christ, from Israel's former (and future) gospel and doctrine for the kingdom of God from heaven, after the catching up of the body of Christ. (2 Tim.2:15; Gal.2:7; Lev.20:24,26).
We see the distinction between what Paul teaches as our gospel and doctrine for all men today, and what Paul taught to the synagogue Jews and Greeks to whom the same salvation message came to provoke Israel to emulation, before his later sending with that same salvation message, to all men. That distinction does not change the gospel of salvation to us. But it does show what additional instructions were only to those former synagogue-going, body of Christ believers who, like Paul, were ambassadors to Israel's remnant according to the election of grace, to save some. (Acts 13:26,46; Acts 22:6-21; Rom.11:5; 1 Cor.9:19-23);
The scriptural ambassadorship of all the reconciled, to commit Paul's doctrine to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also, and so to shine as lights in the world, doing the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. (2 Cor.5:18-21; 2 Tim.2:2; Php.2:15; Eph.4:11-16).

We are NOT to be
an "AGREE-ers CLUB", but a team of marked
"followers together of" Paul, in a "DISSEMINATION
ROOM" looking for hearing ears, seeing eyes, and believing
hearts that are eager to receive God's written "good
news" for us today, from Paul's epistles.
We follow Christ's latest revelation to mankind, for us, which was only through PAUL, and which is later than Christ's fulfilling of prophecy only to Israel as he was on earth and written about in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Acts 1-8, as well as in the red letters of some Bibles.
