This introductory session in the letter to the saints at Philippi provides the addressor and the addressees. The believers at Philippi, as were Paul and Timothy, were known for their position in Christ and their allegiance to Christ, as Saints and Servants. As saints, we have been given a place of honor. As servants we declare our loyalty to Christ. Only God can take sinners and turn them into saints. The saints at Philippi were organized into a well-established church with pastors and deacons. The church was formed during Paul’s second missionary journey (52 BC) while the letter is written about ten years later.
