Purpose Of This Ministry

The purpose of this ministry is found in 2 Corinthians 5:18-21:

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

This ministry seeks to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ in everything. We are are not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ therefore we declare this Gospel in the highways and biways. We preach about sin, righteousness, and the coming judgment to a lost and dying world. Since Jesus' mission was to "seek and save that which was lost", this too is our mission, being empowered by the Holy Spirit whom He has given to all those who believe.

On this site you will find several resources we believe are honoring to our Lord. We hope these resources will help you take up your cross and follow Jesus - they have definitely helped us. We hope you find our site to be both a blessing and an encouragment.

I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ. -Philemon 1:6

Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God

In today's churches (and social circles) we hear so much about God's love, mercy, and forgiveness. Although these characteristics about God are true, they are only half of the story. In fact, I would dare say those characteristics of God make very little sense if we do not understand (or know about) His wrath, anger, hate, and vengeance.

Several years ago I came across a sermon by Johnathan Edwards titled Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. It had been more than a year since I last listened and/or read this sermon, however recently I did both. I HIGHLY recommend this sermon. It might just change the way you think about Jesus.

To listen to the audio for this sermon (52 minutes) you can click on this link http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=11140523305. Otherwise if you prefer to read the text, click the link to the right of this entry titled Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God (text).

Although he quotes several scriptures, most of the sermon is biblical texts simply paraphrased. If you want specific references for some of his comments, let me know and I can send you a detailed sermon outline noting the references.

Please take the time to listen to and/or read the sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. It is 52 minutes that will be well worth your time. I guarantee it will open your eyes to things the bible says about God that you may have never known before.

Do you know the real God of the bible?

2 Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
