5 Things To Do Before Leaving Your Church – Thabiti offers helpful tips on how to leave a church well. “Leaving a local congregation should be one of the most difficult decision we face. It should be filled with the recollection of our love for the saints, their love for us, our service together in the name of our Lord, and our sorrows and joys in the faith. A church is family and we ought never feel it easy to leave family–even an unhealthy family.”

5 Things Mistaken for Evangelism – Mark Dever is concerned about a number of things that people take to be evangelism that aren’t. Here are 5 of them.

They reveal the wonder that often fills the mind of children as they look around their world.”

Lessons From 35 Years – Tom Ascol shares thirty-five lessons drawn from thirty-five years of ministry.

    The Hands and Feet of the Bible

    The Bible has life and the Bible brings life because it has been spoken by God.
