​​​Are You Being Sanctified?

In this session, we discuss chapter 13 of the 1689 confession, titled, “Of Sanctification.” It is important that we have a biblical view of sanctification, and avoid the traps that lie on both sides of the road on this issue. Justification and sanctification are different, but they are always together. Those whom God has saved and […]

​Article XVII – The Mission of the Church and the Family is Generational

We affirm that God commands churches, families, and individuals to teach the gospel and make disciples in every generation, “that thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son” (Ex. 12:26-27; 13:14; Deut. 4:9; 6:1-9; Pss. 78:1-8; 127; […]

What is Your View of God?

What is your view of God? Do you view Him as holy? This is the most defining question for all of life. Everything flows from our view of God, from our understanding of theology, holiness, and other areas. As you look at the world around us, and consider the times we live in, what is […]

Little Hands, Little Feet

The latest video on Planned Parenthood selling body parts has been released by the Center for Medical Progress. Its makes your ears tingle to hear of selling body parts. It’s massively disturbing, but it’s not the selling of body parts that should disturb us the most. It’s the fact that we are dismembering children. We’ve been […]

Why a Marriage Retreat for Young Couples?

Why a separate retreat for young couples? Our prayer for this retreat is to lay a foundation for young married couples. There are many people I have spoken to who, when they come to our marriage retreat, say, “We wish we had known these things 20 years ago.” There are things that I wish I […]

The Church Should Move On This

One of the interesting qualities of family integrated churches across America is that many of them visit abortion clinics to share the gospel, and to proclaim a message of hope in Jesus Christ. This is how Hope Baptist and Sovereign Redeemer Community Church operate in our ministry, Hope Before the Door. With the recent revelations of Planned Parenthood’s […]

Article XV – The Importance of Age-Integrated Discipleship

We affirm that returning to a biblically-ordered, age-integrated methodology for the worship of God and discipleship in a local church is consistent with Holy Scripture and critical for the restoration of the kind of worship and discipleship culture we see demonstrated in both the Old and New Testaments (Deut. 31:12-13; 2 Chron. 20:13; Ezra. 10:1; Ps. […]

Holiness Captures Everything About God

Holiness is happiness. Holiness is beauty. Holiness is wholeness. Holiness really captures everything about God. It captures His love, His mercy, His wrath, it covers His anger, it covers His indignation, it really explains everything about his lovingkindness, and it speaks about the perfections of His laws. So holiness is that one thing that explains […]

Sanctification is a Marathon

What comes to your mind when you think of sanctification? The reality is: sanctification takes time. As Dan Horn describes it in this video, it is a marathon. It is a long road that you gradually walk down. God puts us in various circumstances to further our sanctification. For example, when someone gets married, it […]

The Children of God

Last week, we posted our lecture on justification, which is a critical doctrine to understand. All those whom God has justified, He adopts them into the family of God. They take on His name, have access to come before their Father at the throne and cry out to Him, and He cares for them and […]

Article XIV – The Biblical Pattern is Age-Integration

We affirm that there is a clear and consistent biblical pattern of worship and discipleship for the people of God that is age-integrated; and we believe that this pattern should be embraced and practiced (Ex. 12:21-27; Deut. 16:9-14; 32:46; Josh. 8:34-35; 2 Chron. 20:13; Ezra 10:1; Neh. 8:2; 12:43; Joel 2:15-16; Acts 20:7-12; 1 Cor. 4:16-17; […]
