  1. Resource Recommendations

    Many have rightly observed that with the Supreme Court ruling last Friday (6/26/15) regarding same-sex marriage, “everything has changed, and nothing has changed.”  Indeed, ever since man’s rebellion in the garden (Gen. 3:1-7), all of creation has been groaning under God’s curse (see Rom. 1:18-32; 8:18-25).  We have always lived in difficult times, because of […]

  2. Greetings from Haiti!

    Greetings to all of you from Haiti!  Thank you so much for your prayers – God is indeed blessing and sustaining the preaching/teaching of His powerful word.  Myself, Pastor Lance Gentry, and Mr. Thomas Herrera are in “Part 2” of our mission, in the midst of 4 days of teaching at The Faculty of Theology […]

  3. Adequate to Speak the Truth in Love

    All the rich truths the Holy Spirit has revealed in Eph. 1:3-14 are given to establish and assure Christians of their identity in Christ.  As we grow in our knowledge of God and the blessings of His grace, we walk more effectively in the good works He has prepared for us (Eph. 2:10).  We likewise […]

    Greetings, brothers and sisters.  As you know, myself and 10 other men from RCG are currently at the Shepherds Conference in Los Angeles.  Thank you for your prayers!  We’re being encouraged with the preaching of God’s word, and the fellowship of literally thousands of like-minded men.  It is a blessing to be here – a […]

  5. God’s Work Among Us: Elder Affirmation

    As revealed in Eph. 1:3-14, the eternal plan of God, for His glory in Jesus Christ, is far more comprehensive and significant than anything we could ever imagine or dream of!  It begins in eternity past with the Father’s electing grace (vs. 1:4-6), and will culminate in eternity future with everything in heaven and on […]

  6. Doing Our Part, Today

    A healthy practice for believers is to regularly read the Book of Acts (along with the rest of Scripture)!  With 28 chapters, Acts could be read monthly at a pace of one chapter a day.  Or it could be read quarterly by reading 2-3 chapters a week, or almost twice a year by reading a […]

  7. Word Work

    Over the last couple weeks in the book of Acts, we’ve been learning of God’s strategy for world missions.  Simply stated, He speaks!  God accomplishes His work by His living, powerful, authoritative word.  So we have seen throughout Acts that our exalted Lord Jesus Christ is gathering, shepherding, and multiplying His flock – the church.  […]

  8. A Look Ahead

    Wow – amazingly, we’re already into the month of August!  I trust you have been having a refreshing summer thus far, and more than anything that you are growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ (2 Pet. 3:17-18).   Along with our modified summer schedule continuing through the end of August, we are […]

  9. Body Life

    Our physical bodies are amazing!  The complexity, and intricacy of God’s marvelous design is beyond our ability to fully comprehend.  What diversity of parts: hands, feet, eyes, ears, muscles, brain, nervous system, etc.  Yet in all this rich diversity, what great unity in all these parts working together for the proper life and functioning of […]

  10. The Shepherd of Shepherds

    While there are many metaphors God uses to describe His relationship with His people, one of the more prominent in Scripture is that of a shepherd with his sheep.  Extending from numerous Old Testament references (Gen. 48:15; Ps. 80:1; Is. 40:11; etc.), Jesus is revealed to be the Good Shepherd (Jn. 10:11-16), the Great Shepherd […]

  11. A Note from Haiti

    Devastated by the effects of false teaching from cults, peddlers of the prosperity gospel, and Pentecostalism, Haiti is in great need for pastors to be equipped and encouraged as Christ-exalting shepherds who can exposit God’s word. My hope is that men will be raised up and trained, churches will be strengthened, and the Gospel will […]
