As a preacher, you face the weekly task of delivering a message that reaches your audience with the Word of God. You must balance many demands on your time and prepare as efficiently as possible. We like to think of our collection of sermons and illustrations as a giant database containing approximately half a million pages of material. Your congregation may wonder why you use SermonCentral or you may at times lean too much on the site so that it distracts from your own study of God’s Word. This is what The Preacher’s Pledge is about. It’s a commitment you can make before God, yourself, and your congregation to keep the Word of God preeminent in your preaching.

—Pastor Greg Laurie

Take the Preacher's Pledge!

  • I will make the Bible my primary resource in sermon preparation and preaching.

  • I may use other resources such as commentaries and web sites to enhance, not replace, my personal interaction with Scripture.

  • As I study I will strive to accurately understand and honestly apply God's Word, allowing Him to uniquely proclaim His truth in a relevant way through me.
