Unquestioned Integrity

Don’t build your ministry and then add God. Build on the rock called God, and let your ministry rest on that divine foundation.

Only two things in this world are eternal—the Word of God and people. It only makes sense to build your life around those things that will last forever.

Our Coming to You Was Not in Vain

When one pastor leaves and another one comes, we learn again that God’s work depends on God, not on God’s messengers. Build your life on God’s Word, not on the man who delivers it.

What Does It Mean to Believe the Bible?

The debate over the nature of the Bible is so crucial. If it is only the word of man, then it is changeable, fickle and unreliable. But if the Bible is the word of God, then it is utterly and completely authoritative. If God has spoken in the Bible, then what he says has final claim on my life.

In his long absence we are called to stand in his place, taking care of his interests, spreading his Word, and inviting others to join his cause. This is a high and noble calling: Let us live so that no one will be surprised to discover who it is we represent.

How to Turn the World Upside Down

Many were saying, “These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also.” What a great thing to have said about you—that you managed to turn the world upside town. I can’t think of a greater compliment for a Christian! How did they do it? Acts 17 records the fact; I Thessalonians 2 gives us the answer.
