Christ did not come to make salvation possible

Posted by admin on August 20, 2018 at 12:01 pm

for as many people as might someday decide to accept him as their personal savior. The Lord Jesus Christ came into the world to make salvation CERTAIN for all those the Father gave Him in the covenant of grace. If this is not so, it is not possible for anyone to be saved. Frank Tate

Subpar Christians

Posted by admin on July 30, 2018 at 2:36 am

Subpar Christians In listening to a message I heard a preacher say there are a lot of “subpar Christians.” I do not believe that for a moment. Gods holy word says, “we are complete in Him” (Col. 2:9-10). They also say, “he hath perfected forever them that are sanctified” (Heb 10:14). Christ is “made unto [...]

Church Member or Christ Worshipper?

Church Member or Christ Worshipper? From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure [...]

Simple, Silent, Unassuming Worship

Simple, Silent, Unassuming Worship Mark 14:3-9 I find it wonderful how our Lord expresses this woman’s simple, yet focused act of worship in these verses here in Mark’s gospel. How different is this real worship as compared to today’s ‘contemporary’ style. How low key and unassuming and peaceful is this woman’s utter devotion to the [...]

True or False Professor?

Posted by admin on July 30, 2018 at 2:21 am

True or False Professor? There is a distinguishing difference between a true child of God and a false professor. The Bible is filled with illustrations of this truth – Mt 7:22-23; Mt 23:27; Mt 25:32; John 14:21; 1John 3:14. This discernible difference is characterized from an inward presence of the indwelling Spirit of God which [...]

Sovereign or Superior Grace?

Sovereign or Superior Grace? Many, I have found report to believe in Sovereign Grace. They speak of their love for a God who sovereignly elected a people, a Christ who sovereignly atoned for those particular people alone, and a Spirit who sovereignly and successfully regenerates the same chosen people. In their confessions, they boldly and [...]

If my wife asked me if I loved her….

Posted by admin on July 23, 2018 at 10:23 am

If my wife asked me if I loved her, and I replied that I did in a sense, it would not be received well. I hear preachers speak of God loving all men in a sense, and sincerely offering mercy and forgiveness to all men – that is quite simply not true! The apostles never [...]

The Way Some Call Heresy

Posted by admin on July 23, 2018 at 10:21 am

The Way Some Call Heresy “But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets…” (Acts. 24:14) Someone recently referred to our congregation as a cult saying, “They don’t believe [...]

Reformation is not Regeneration

Posted by admin on April 21, 2018 at 10:18 pm

Reformation is not Regeneration Before the soul can know anything about salvation, it must learn deeply and experimentally the nature of sin, and of itself, as stained and polluted by sin. It is proud, and needs to be humbled; careless, and needs to be awakened; alive, and needs to be killed; full, and requires to [...]
