Resources for Christians
EDUCATING, EDIFYING & INFORMING
One of the challenges of a technologically-advanced society is the abundance of voices that claim to be Christian and that clamor for our attention. This can make it very difficult for believers (especially newer believers) to know who to trust or where to start when it comes to things like news, music, or Bible-teaching ministries. At Firm Foundation, we want to take advantage of technology—not only by using it to make the Gospel of the Lord Jesus known, but to edify, inform, and equip the people of God. To that end, we’ve put together a fairly-extensive list of resources to help point God’s people in the right direction in some of these areas.
NOTE: The presence of a particular resource or person on this page is *not* an endorsement of everything they say, teach, or believe. That said, while there are things we disagree with in each case whether more or less, we have thought carefully about every resource included on this page, and we commend each one to you as a basically faithful and/or otherwise-trustworthy source.
Teaching & Preaching
The Bible-teaching and preaching ministries of faithful pastors and teachers, along with some other resources for listening to sermons online.
Theological, practical, and apologetics resources to build up you up and equip you to give an answer for the hope that lies within you (1 Pet. 3.15).
Teaching, preaching, theology, and more by some of the giants of Christian history.
Bible Study Tools
Tools and resources to help you dig deeper in your personal study of God’s Word.
News & Worldview
News, journalism, and cultural analysis from biblical worldview. NOTE: While not all of these sources are biblically-Christian sources, all are anchored in an essentially-Christian worldview and are invaluable for helping us think biblically about culture, politics, and current events.
An economist who has also done important scholarship in history, social theory, race relations, and more, Dr. Sowell is one of the most brilliant and important American thinkers over the past century. More of his works can be found here.
Christian music for your own personal listening and edification, plus some congregational resources. Please note: As we’ve said above, just because we’ve listed a resource here doesn’t mean agree with everything they believe or even produce. That said, most of what’s here is exceptionally solid, and we trust that you’ll find it worshipful and encouraging.
