CURRENT STUDY: An Exposition of First Thessalonians

We invite you to join us as Pastor Harrell takes us one verse at a time through Paul’s letters to the saints at Thessalonica. Here we discover many practical insights concerning things like how to identify the elect; essentials of a healthy, growing church; attitudes and activities of a true shepherd; matters pertaining to future events that bring help and hope to every believer; and insights relating to a missionary proclamation of the gospel and church planting. So prepare your heart to receive these blessed truths and come join us on this Christ-exalting, soul-satisfying, life-changing journey. Soli Deo Gloria!

Dear Friends

What an amazing privilege we have to gather together as a church, which means, “the called out ones.” By the grace of God we have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. The Holy Spirit has transformed us by breathing spiritual life into what was once a spiritual corpse. He has drawn us into fellowship with the living God and with one another. Though we are still in the world, we are no longer of the world and our lives are now united to Christ who is the Head of the church, the body of Christ, in which we all find our very life and eternal joy.
As we come together to worship our glorious God on this Lord’s day, please remember that He is supreme in all we do. We must remain committed to God-exalting theology, to a God-centered worldview, to God-honoring worship, to God-driven convictions that result in a God-glorifying life.
May everything we do together in this place exalt the majesty and excellency of Christ, our Savior and God, for we are “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that (we) may proclaim the praises of Him who called (us) out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

Preaching Distinctive

 ". . . we exist to equip the saints through expository preaching, teaching . . ."

Saints cannot be equipped for godly living and service apart from precise theology (Ephesians 4:11-16). This is the goal of expository preaching and teaching. The term "exposit" literally means to expound or explain in a detailed manner. Expository preaching is therefore a doctrinal proclamation of the Word of God derived from an exegetical process that is concerned only with the revelation of God, not the wisdom of man, and therefore carefully conveys the God-intended meaning of a text, passionately applying that meaning to the contemporary issues of life with an internal zeal and authority that cannot be extinguished.

Although this kind of preaching and teaching is rare in contemporary evangelicalism, since this was the method exemplified in the Bible (Neh. 8:8; Acts 7:2-53; 8:27-35; 20:26-27; Luke 4:16-22; 24:27, 32, 44-47), and since we have a divine mandate to "preach the Word" (2 Timothy 4:2), we believe that this is the God ordained method and we remain committed to it.



Joel 2:1,2, 10,11: “. . . Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming; surely it is near, a day of darkness and bloom, a day of clouds sand thick darkness . . . There has never been anything like it, nor will there be again after it. . . v. 10: the earth quakes and the heavens tremble, the sun and the moon grow dark, and the stars lose their brightness. The Day of the LORD is indeed great and very awesome, and who can endure it?” . . . 30-32: “I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth, blood, fire and columns of smoke. The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and awesome day of the Lord comes. And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be delivered; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be those who escape, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls."
