Oh how we need preachers and saints with a solid doctrinal foundation today!  Please browse this section for some articles on the precious teachings of God's holy word.

  • Acts 12:4 - Many Bible teachers have given their reasons for the presence of Easter in Acts 12:4.  What is the easiest answer?  Read to find out.
  • Apostles: Do We Still Have Them Today? What are the qualifications of apostles? Are missionaries apostles? Were the apostles continued?
  • Baptisms - Introduction:  Christians disagree about baptism. Even Baptists hold knives to each other’s throats on this topic, especially when someone suggests that there might be more than one baptism. Because of the subject’s importance, many hours have been spent studying it. Though much has been learned from others, this article takes a unique approach which will hopefully be helpful to the reader. However, no man’s teaching is without error. As in all doctrinal studies, scripture is the final authority for all truth.

  • Baptisms - Filling of the Spirit: The last one is not a baptism though some would refer to it as such. It is the filling of the Spirit. However, if you are a child of God, you are commanded to be filled with the Spirit. You must say, “Lord I am not in charge of my heart and life; you are. I open my heart entirely to you. I will trust by faith that you will take me and use me as you will.”

  • Baptisms - Spirit Baptism: What is Spirit baptism?  Is this some sort of external experience that we ought to seek today or is this a total misrepresentation of the scriptures?

  • Baptisms - Baptism with the Holy Ghost: To understand the baptism with the Holy Ghost, you must understand that it was an event. Acts 1:6 teaches that the baptism with the Holy Ghost would occur “not many days hence.” We know that this baptism occurred in Acts chapter two on the Day of Pentecost. It was a special day. It was a unique day. It is not to be sought again and again. On that day, the believing Jews were brought into the baptism with the Holy Ghost.

  • Baptisms - Water Baptism: Generally speaking, the way John baptized Jesus is how we baptize believers in water today. It is not John baptizing Jesus, but it is one man, usually a preacher, who as the Administrator takes the person who has come to be baptized, the Subject, and puts them into the water, the Medium. You have the Administrator, the Subject and the Medium. That is still our basic form of baptism as to external physical form.
