The Passion of the Christ Truly all the excessive violence surrounding the crucifixion of Christ makes no sense without first understanding the context. All that blood and gore (whether one is watching it on a movie screen or hearing about it in a gospel sermon) will have little meaning unless we first understand why it happened, and why it had to happen.

Origins of Christian Worship The early church was comprised mainly of Jews who had accepted Jesus as the promised Messiah and Lord. Therefore, to best understand the origins of Christian worship, it is necessary to look at the history of Jewish worship, for it was this past manner of worship that helped to shape the worship of the early church.

The Day Christ Comes Again One day it's really going to happen. Probably it will be a day just like any other day. There will likely be no reason whatsoever to think that that day would be the one. But one day it's really going to happen. The day you've heard about and read about, even sung about. The day you've thought about, maybe worried about. One day it's really going to happen: the day Christ comes again. Read More
A Study of Baptism When we believe in Jesus and obey God's command to be immersed in water, God does many wonderful things in our lives: He forgives and washes away our sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16), He saves us (Mark 16:16; 1 Peter 3:21), He adds us to the body of Christ (1 Cor 12:13; Galatians 3:27), and He buries our old way of life and raises us to walk in newness of life (Romans 6:3-6; Col 2:13).

Assurance of Salvation God wants us to have confidence regarding our salvation. The apostle John wrote in 1 John 5:13, "These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life." But since we all sin and fall short of the glory of God, how can we have such confidence? The key to assurance is not to place our trust in ourselves, but in the perfection of Christ and His sacrifice on our behalf. Read More
The Holy Spirit: Our Help and Strength Some people believe that when the Bible speaks of the Spirit of God going forth and doing something, it really is just another way of saying that God Himself is doing something. Their view is that the Spirit is basically an impersonal force or power or some kind of spiritual essence that emanates forth from God. However, the Bible seems clearly to teach that the Holy Spirit is an actual divine person separate and distinct from God the Father and Christ the Son. Read More
