Preaching

2 Timothy 4:1-2 says “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

We believe that we are now living in the time described in the verses that follow directly;

2 Timothy 4:3-5 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”

We believe that every sermon delivered must be expository. A message may be from a book study, but it must be expository by going verse by verse, and more often than not, word by word. There may be topical messages, but they also must be expository. For example: “The Love of God” could be the topic, but there may be several verses that you would choose to teach that topic and those verses must be expounded in their context as they relate to the topic.

Our desire is to hear what God has to say to us from his revelation of himself, the Bible.
