Safe, Secure, and Sealed

The question of whether or not a true believer can lose his salvation after having been justified by faith alone in the person and work of Jesus Christ has existed within the church almost from its inception. In fact, during the persecution of the early church in the second and third centuries, many individuals who were facing the prospect of torment and even death chose to renounce their faith in order to avoid suffering a painful and often lethal punishment.

Just One Way of Salvation

One thing the Bible makes as clear as day, and the experience of millions has proven it to be true—there are not a dozen ways to get to heaven. There is just one road that leads to the City, just one entrance to the City and consequently just one foundation upon which we may rest our hopes of salvation.

The Relationship of Science to Biblical Faith

1. Science is a human enterprise which leads to knowledge of the natural world. This knowledge is tentative, not absolute, and is subject to revision based upon new empirical data. Science deals with observable, reproducible data.

2. The Scriptural revelation provides knowledge about both the natural world and the supernatural. This knowledge is absolute and is not subject to revision based upon empirical data.

New Life for a New Year

This is the time of year when people make New Year's resolutions. They often see a need—something that needs to change—and they purpose to accomplish it this year. Some will fulfill their goals while others fail or quit before the month is over. But what Jesus offers is that which changes a person from the inside-out. He gives new life.

Happy New Year!

A new year is upon us. Some view this with eager optimism and anticipation. Others have a sense of foreboding and cynicism about what the future holds as a result of what has transpired over the course of 2016. What will happen in 2017? God alone knows for sure (Isa. 45:11). As believers, we rest in this truth, being confident that His will and purposes are being accomplished (Eph. 1:11). What happens will ultimately result in the greatest good (Rom. 8:28) and He will be given the glory He richly deserves (Eph. 3:20, 21).
