In Search of the Early Church

Deacons & Deaconesses: Servants of Christ

April 7, 1993

First images stay in the mind forever. Whenever I hear the word “deacon,” I always think of Hilliard Felton. He was a lifetime deacon at the First Baptist Church of Russellville, Alabama. As I think back, I don’t believe I ever saw him without a coat and tie on. He was one of the “old […]

How to Handle Trouble in the Church

June 7, 1992

Some subjects require special justification by the pastor; others are self-evident. This one requires no justification. Wherever you have two or more people gathered in one place, you will have trouble sooner or later. Whenever you have hundreds of people in one place, you’ll probably have trouble sooner rather than later. Thus the need for […]

Is Congregational Government Biblical?

May 31, 1992

In approaching a topic like this, it helps if the pastor has no illusions. I candidly admit that most people don’t have a great interest in the subject I am tackling. In fact, over my 30 years in the ministry, this quesiton has only come up a handful of times. So why deal with an […]

What Elders Do

April 12, 1992

I. The Importance of This Subject A. Many People Have a Wrong Concept of Eldership. Some people fear having elders because, to them, the word suggests authoritarian, anti-democratic rule. Others wrongly perceive elders as being super-spiritual leaders. Still others think of elders as nothing more than a regular church board. A study of the New […]

Ebook: In His Steps

No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
