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).

David Harrell Pastor-Teacher

Our Passion For The Pulpit
". . . 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.

Current Study: Daniel
I invite you to join me in a verse-by-verse expositional journey through the book of Daniel. The preview of human history provided by Daniel’s prophecies not only sheds light on the contemporary events of the world, but also animates our hope that our Lord’s return is soon. Through His inspired prophecy God reveals the successive stages of Gentile world domination through the ages that will continue until the Messiah returns in power and great glory as King of kings and Lord of lords to establish His millennial kingdom—the consummating bridge between world history and the eternal state. Here we will marvel at God’s sovereign rule over the Gentile nations and over Israel’s future as we witness the miracle of divine providence orchestrating all the events of world history to exalt our Savior and King, the Lord Jesus Christ, and redeem all whom the Father has given Him. I pray the Spirit of God will speak to your heart through this study, that together we might better worship and serve the One who deserves our utmost.
