Expository Preaching

Expository Preaching

We wholeheartedly believe in the power and total sufficiency of God's Word.  Believing as we do about the Bible, how will it best be proclaimed?  We believe the answer is expository preaching.  

Expository preaching is that which explains the author's intent in a specific Bible passage and applies that intent in our cultural context.  Expository preaching means God's word is in the driver's seat for each sermon or lesson.  Whatever the verse says, we must say.  Whatever the flow of logic is, we must be carried by it.  Whatever the emotion of the text conveys, we must likewise be moved.  

When we do this, God's voice is heard.  It is as athoritative as if God was speaking it Himself in our midst.  This is the centerpeice of the church gathered.  

Therefore, we preach through books of the Bible verse-by-verse.  In doing so, we are kept from skipping hard passages, riding hobby-horses, and falling into the typical imbalances of topical preaching.  While avoiding those errors, we are richly fed on the pure milk of the Word as God has given it to us.
