  • Creeds of the Church

    Below are texts of three creeds that are particularly useful for the church today. The American church would do well to return to the truths found in these creeds written by the early church.

  • 1Timothy – The Gospel Effect

    What do you think of when you think about 1Timothy? Maybe the description of elders and deacons comes to mind. Maybe you run to the passage about women’s role in the church. Maybe something else catches your eye. Most people tend to look at it as a letter of church order. But that is only […]

Before Jacob wrestled with God and became Israel, God said that he was the one. In spite of the deception earlier […]
