God’s Word Preached

We are committed to the faithful, expositional preaching of the Bible. Expositional or ‘expository’ preaching—which is commonly referred to as “verse-by-verse” preaching—simply means that the biblical text drives the content of the sermon. In other words, faithful exposition takes the point of the sermon from the text, and seeks to explain and apply it in an understandable and engaging way (2 Timothy 3:16–4:5).

Listen in and be nourished with us on the riches of the Scriptures—verse by verse, book by book, week in and week out.

    1 Corinthians 1:10-17

    Unity in the local church is of utmost importance to the Lord Jesus. Because Christians are united to Him, they are united to one another. Yet sadly, due to our pride, we fail to behave in a way that is consistent with this blessed identity and strife and division run rampant. How can we guard ourselves against disunity?

The world calls the Bible's directives concerning the role of young women outdated and even oppressive, but God defines them as "good." Young women find their greatest fulfillment when they focus their affection on their husbands and children.
Many who have reached the latter stage of life feel entitled to spiritual retirement, thinking that along with retirement from their occupation, their work for the Lord is done as well. Others feel the sting of a culture that increasingly prefers to discard the elderly, as if they have timed out in their usefulness. But God says older Christian men and women are treasure troves of truth and wisdom who are not only to continue their pursuit of godliness, but to intentionally invest themselves in the young.

In the midst of a culture that is in rapid moral decline, Christians are tempted to embrace false ideologies under the guise of gospel terminology or to follow those who seek to rally believers in the pursuit of saving the culture through social and political activism. But the Apostle Paul, who served in a culture that was just as godless-even worse-instead called Christians to be zealous in helping one another to grow in Christlikeness in whatever stage or station of life they found themselves, and through this to shine the life-transforming light of the gospel into a dark and lost world.

The qualifications and duties of elders are spelled out clearly in the Scriptures because leadership is so foundational to the health of the church. But the congregation also has responsibilities to the elders that are crucial for maintaining unity and fulfilling the Great Commission.
Are the qualifications for deacons less than those for elders? Are deacons required to teach? Can women serve as deacons? We find the answers to these questions here as the Apostle Paul wrote this letter under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit so that we might know how we "ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth" (1 Tim. 3:15).
There is so much misunderstanding among Christians of biblical leadership in general, and the role of both elders and deacons in particular. When we do a deep dive into the office deacon, we find that it is a wonderful part of our Lord Jesus' design for the life and growth of his church.
Lacking the desire to pray is a universal Christian experience—and one of the most universally discouraging. Why is praying so difficult? In this first message in our series on the "Lord's Prayer" passage in Matthew 6, we'll take a look at some foundational practical and theological realities that underly the work of prayer.
The irrefutable demonstration of a debt forgiven is love. Jesus understood the power of the testimony of a changed life and didn't hesitate to challenge his critics on this one point: if you're not serving Him, you haven't been forgiven.
Are you feeling spiritually sluggish and seemingly unable to break out of it? Are you frustrated at the fact that you're not growing? Perhaps you are misunderstanding God's clearly defined plan for your sanctification, or the process of spiritual growth.
Jesus said, "Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted" (Matt. 23:12). He demonstrated that principle when, having emptied Himself of significance in coming to take upon humanity, and humbling Himself to the point of death in the place of sinners, the Father highly exalted Him and gave Him the name that is above every name.
As if the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ was not enough, not only did He empty Himself of significance in coming to take upon humanity, but in His humanity He humbled Himself in obedience all the way to death on the cross. The attitude He had when He willingly walked down these steps of condescension is the same mindset His followers are to have in relation to one another. Nothing less than this is the true spirit of Christmas.
Have you ever come to grips with the fact that perhaps the greatest problem in your life is...you? This is why Christ Jesus came into the world. He came to save sinners. But in coming to do so, He gave us the ultimate example of what it means to turn from our pride and selfishness and instead to count others as more significant than ourselves. This is the true spirit of Christmas: the mindset of Christ revealed in the wonder of His incarnation.
The qualification for an elder to be "able to teach" (1 Tim. 3:2) does not simply refer to a man's ability to captivate an audience. While the supernatural gift of teaching is essential, the content of what is taught is far more important than how it is packaged for delivery. An elder must be wholeheartedly committed to God's word so that he may be able to preach it accurately.
