  • Baptist catechism

    Facilitated by Pastor Tim

    In Galatians 6:6 he says, “Let him who is taught the word share all good things with him who teaches.” In this verse the Greek word for “instruct” or “teach” is katecheo. From this word, we get our English word “catechize.” It simply means to teach biblical truth in an orderly way.

  • Heaven

    by randy alcorn

    Have you ever wondered . . . ?

    • What is Heaven really going to be like?
    • What will we look like?
    • What will we do every day?
    • Won’t Heaven get boring after a while?

    In the most comprehensive and definitive book on Heaven to date, Randy invites you to picture Heaven the way Scripture describes it―a bright, vibrant, and physical New Earth, free from sin, suffering, and death, and brimming with Christ’s presence, wondrous natural beauty, and the richness of human culture as God intended it. This is a book about real people with real bodies enjoying close relationships with God and each other, eating, drinking, working, playing, traveling, worshiping, and discovering on a New Earth. Earth as God created it. Earth as he intended it to be.


    The next time you hear someone say, “We can’t begin to image what Heaven will be like,” you’ll be able to tell them, “I can.”

  • God of deliverance

    by jen wilkin

    “Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph” (Exodus 1:8).

    With that introduction, we enter into the story of the Hebrew people in the Book of Exodus. No longer under the protection of their forefather Joseph, the children of Israel became slaves to the Egyptians. But God was raising up a deliverer in Moses, to lead His people from bondage to freedom so they could worship Him.


    The exodus of the Israelites shapes our understanding of the whole Bible, its themes reverberating all the way to Revelation. Exodus is the birth narrative of a nation unmistakably guided by the Great Deliverer.


    In this 10-session verse-by-verse study of Exodus 1–18, Jen Wilkin shows us that Israel’s story is our story: the same God who delivered Israel also delivers all those He loves from slavery to sin and from service to the pharaohs of this world. He lifts our eyes to the promised land He has prepared where we dwell with I AM and worship Him as the one true God.
