All Speak the Word

Gospel Growth Involves Every Christian Speaking the Word

Sit in church on Sunday, hear the word of God preached; wake up in the morning, read the Word of God written; go to bible study, hear the Word of God taught.

There are many leaders both Christian and secular who are noticing the decay of American Evangelicalism. At the same time, there has been an increased interest in Reformed theology worldwide.1

What Does Fellowship Look Like?

Teaching, Admonishing, Singing Hymns and Spiritual Songs

Our life is compartmentalized into places we go to for teaching, preaching, singing, dancing, socializing. For the Christian, church is often the place we go to for teaching while we gather together in homes for socializing and fellowship. The Bible seems to paint a different picture.
