Many, many issues…

Does it matter what you wear to church?

Does it matter what you wear to church?

Are those who dress smartly in their ‘Sunday best’ for church just holding onto silly traditions? Does it matter what you wear when you worship God?

The decline of the local church

Our prayer is that people would come into our churches from the local area, saved and unsaved, to add to our numbers. Yet, I’ve been troubled in recent months by the thought that many of us don’t go to churches local to us. Instead, we go to the ones which fit our specification and forget the little faithful congregation next door.

Let’s get rid of excessive evangelism and reform the church

Over the last few decades, I believe that many of us have lost sight of what church is about and are instead gripped and obsessed with modern evangelism techniques in all their shapes and sizes. From seeker sensitivity to the construction of endless cafes, churches up and down the land have neglected the lives of the congregation. This is not healthy.

What about Roman Catholicism?

The Roman Catholic Church is the largest religious denomination in the world with an estimated 1.3 billion followers—more than the number of Protestants (estimated at 800 million to 1 billion).

Should Christians be AV only?

There are often debates in our churches about what Bible translation we should use.  In this episode, Michael, Ryan and Josh sit down to discuss if we as believers should be King James-only Christians and if not then why not?! We hope you will find this helpful and encouraging.  Do let us know if there […]
