John Piper waited until the end of his pastoral ministry before he preached through Romans. I didn’t have that much wisdom, so I dove in.
It’s one thing to *say* that God is totally sovereign in salvation. But it’s another thing entirely to let that conviction shape and constrain how your church actually does ministry.
Your doctrine of conversion will affect your understanding of what a local church should be.
Here are three reasons why content isn’t everything—and four strategies to avoid boring teaching
John Onwuchekwa describes the suffering his church went through—how he tried to prepare them for it, and how he wishes he’d prepared better.
The book of Acts is the narrative of how God’s end-times promises have begun to be fulfilled by the risen Lord Jesus through the Spirit-empowered apostolic preaching of the gospel to all people and the establishing of local churches.

If we focus on calling the unsaved out of sin without dealing with the sin in our own churches, then we will hamper our evangelism and our reputation in the community.
Preach through this Gospel and bring your people to the feet of the Messiah to understand his identity, his power, his mission, and their own mission.

As a former victim and as a pastor to the abused, I wish to look at some of the practical implications of holding to PSA.
We will never have enough songs to extol the glory of the Lamb who was slain to purchase our salvation.
