On Tongues Subsequent to Conversion

July 25, 2015


On speaking in tongues, Acts 10:44-48 states the Holy Spirit fell upon the Gentiles upon hearing the Word of God preached by Peter.

Love the Church, Love Christ

August 24, 2013


We are commanded to love God with all of our heart, mind, and strength. We strive for this by the help of the Holy Spirit, but our sin-stricken flesh prohibits us from loving Him perfectly. But one thing we can be certain, strive as we might, our striving will fall that much more short if […]

Comments Off on The Evangelist’s Commitment to the Local Church

In opening his letter to the Philippian church, Paul wrote, I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy, for your fellowship in evangelism from the first day until now… Wait a minute, that must have been a typo.

What do you do if it’s not? The following message from Steven Lawson at the final Resolved Conference last weekend is something every Christian […]

October Baby Compassion

What Is Discipleship?

November 24, 2011


While the majority of the church is busy planning programs and activities to entertain their members and increase their numbers, they neglect the way God has ordained for His church to be built and edified.  “Christian entertainment” has replaced equipping the saints for the work of the ministry, and instead of discipling disciples to make […]
