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).

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.

Seven Key Principles

A book that exhorts and encourages Christian ministers and leaders to be committed to the principled model for successful ministry that God has established through the teaching of the New Testament.

Current Study: I Corinthians

Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians is primarily an exhortation calling those who have been made holy to act holy, to separate themselves from the values and lifestyles of Satan’s world system in opposition to God—a much needed correction in an age where many professing Christians believe the church must become like the world in order to win it to Christ.

Here the inspired apostle will expose common themes of wickedness that can be found in every church, like worldliness, immorality, and factionalism. He will address matters like the danger of worldly wisdom, the importance of being stewards of the mysteries of God, issues pertaining to marriage, singleness, divorce, and remarriage, Christian liberty and genuine worship, the roles of men and women in the church, the Lord’s Supper, spiritual gifts, the hope of the church found in the resurrection, and matters pertaining to financial stewardship.

We invite you to join us as Pastor Harrell carefully explains and applies this most instructive and encouraging letter that is as contemporary today as it was in the first century when it was written.
