Luther, and the Creative Power of the Word

The importance of Luther to the Christian faith cannot be overstated. For many today, he is probably a figure who looks larger as a symbol of defiance or a heroic rebel against a corrupt church and decadent theology. There is much truth in such images.

Trinity audio featuring the teaching of Liam Goligher now available

In response to the Trinity debate that occured in 2016, Liam Goligher preached a series of sermons on the Trinity from Hebrews 1. This doctrine is not easy to understand or to preach.  Yet the Trinity is the most foundational of all Christian beliefs, because it speaks of the God we worship as he revealed himself to finite minds.

These sermons are now available on CD and MP3 at ReformedResources.org thanks to a partnership between the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and Tenth Presbyterian Church.

No Little Women

A women’s sphere of influence is vast – home, church, work, and beyond.  It is important for the Church to invest in them and equip them to be discerning; recognizing bad doctrine and understanding that theology has practical application in their everyday lives. Aimee Byrd shows in her new book No Little Women: Equipping All Women in the Household of God how strengthening women in the church strengthens the whole Church.
