  • The Pursuit Of Ministry Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Oct 8, 2020

    Things have changed much since the first century, and yet much remains the same. Paul realized the danger of majoring on the minor and minoring on the major. His insight still speaks for ministries today.

    This message provides insight on the current crisis in America, then expounds Philippians 2:25-30. Paul's commendation of Epaphroditus supplies criteria for discerning godly New Testament leadership.

  • Gospelling Like Paul Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Sep 27, 2019

    Paul commends the church of the Thessalonians for being a model to the others churches. They imitate Paul who avoids all worldly techniques when he brings the Gospel; and who also brings the Gospel with family familiarity. Such gospelling will make believers strong and ready and stand out.

But the Holy Spirit, the more
