GUEST: JOEL BEEKE, host, Puritan documentary

It’s sad that the legacy of the Puritans is either not known or misconstrued today. They rose to prominence in the second half of the 1500s and influenced Protestant Christianity and Western Europe and the forming of America more than any other people or movement.

The Puritans were born again Christians who applied Scripture to every area of […]

GUEST: JOEL BEEKE, host, PURITAN documentary

In 2000 years of church history, the two most prominent eras for the propagation of sound doctrine were in the first century when the apostles of Christ took the gospel across the Roman Empire and then in the 1500s and 1600s when the Protestant Reformation took place.

But as always, Satan, along with those who knowingly or unknowingly […]

GUEST: TRAVIS ALLEN, pastor, Grace Church (Greeley, CO)

“Evangelical” once meant a Christian who believed in the authority of Scripture and the call to evangelize the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ. But the devil, so to speak, is in the details of how that has played out over the decades.

Today many Evangelical churches and Evangelical para-church organizations—colleges, seminaries, publishing and music industries, camps, […]

Last week in part 1 of our series on the Bible, we heard some sound bites from a sermon by pastor Alistair Begg, addressing important questions about the Bible, such as:

  • How exactly is the Bible the “inspired of God”?
  • Does the Bible have the central place in our lives and church?
  • What is the structure of the Bible and its main theme?
  • Why is the Bible different and better […]

A small group of biblical Christians known as the the Pilgrims are widely considered to be “the founders of America”.

Numbering only about 400-500 souls, they had fled religious persecution in England to settle in Holland. But after ten years there, they decided on another move across the Atlantic Ocean to an unknown land that would become the United States.

GUEST: MIKE GENDRON, founder/evangelist, Proclaiming the Gospel

We know the darkness the world celebrates each year on October 31 but it’s disconcerting that the day passes with most Protestant churches, generally, and Evangelical churches, specifically, devoting little or no time commemorating and teaching about something far more momentous which took place on that date in 1517—Martin Luther nailing his “95 Theses” document on the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, […]

GUEST: GREG GILBERT, senior pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church

Nearly 2000 years ago, the most important three days in history took place when Jesus Christ was crucified on a cross on Friday, buried in a tomb, and then rose from the dead three days later on Sunday, after which he appeared to hundreds of eyewitnesses.

Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation. 1 Peter 2:11-12

In a bygone era in America, it was widely affirmed that the Pilgrims’ founding of Plymouth Colony in New England and the self-governing […]

How much do you know about church history over the past 2000 years? Do you know the people, places, events, doctrinal debates, councils, splits, persecutions, and martyrs that have formed the church age?

Sadly, very few Christians know how God has worked in His church since the close of the New […]
