We Labor Diligently for the Conversion of Souls

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

In reading from my great teacher John Owen, I came across this wonderful section from his sermon titled “The Duty of a Pastor.” It may be found in his Works, vol. 9:460-462. I shall mention one duty more that is required of pastors and teachers in the church; and that is, — that, we labor [...]

The Real Scandal of the Evangelical Mind

Monday, September 12th, 2011

I have come to appreciate very much Carl Trueman’s observations on faith and life. His book Histories and Fallacies is a must read.

How much does your church give?

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

How much does your church give? James M. Renihan The churches of our Association are very generous in their support for Gospel work. Whether it is foreign missions, special projects, or the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies, I am always blessed by the faithful contributions which come in from our congregations. But perhaps there is [...]

Shared Gospel Ministry

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

In the Second London Confession, Chapter 27 paragraph 2 we read: “Saints by profession are bound to maintain an holy fellowship and communion in the worship of God, and in performing such other spiritual services, as tend to their mutual edification; as also in relieving each other in  outward things according to their several abilities, [...]

A ‘Man-Taker’

Friday, February 5th, 2010

Joseph Ivimey records this fascinating anecdote about a 17th century General Baptist pastor, George Hammon. It was the normal practice of the day for ministers to do itinerant evangelistic work, even during times of great persecution.

The Quiet Sin

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

In 1859, a book titled Sketches and Lessons From Daily Life was published under the pen name ‘Felix Friendly.’ It is an interesting little work, devotional in nature, and thought provoking in execution.

Joseph Alleine’s Pastoral Prayer

Monday, August 10th, 2009

After he was ejected from his ministry in Taunton, Joseph Alleine continued to be deeply concerned for the welfare of the flock he was forced to leave. He wrote letters to them, urging them to find Christ and to pursue holiness. He exposed his heart to his people by including the words of his prayer [...]

The Lord’s Day in Bradford-on-Avon

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Perhaps the best day of our tour was the Lord’s Day we spent in Bradford-on-Avon. We worshiped at the Old Baptist Chapel, a congregation in existence since the 17th Century. They sent messengers to the Particular Baptist General Assembly in London in 1689, and they still believe the same things today.

B&PH Tour Day 8

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Today we are in the ancient Roman town, Bath (for all of us Americans, that is Baath–you will be corrected if you don’t say it properly). While there isn’t much here in the way of Baptist or Puritan history, it is nevertheless a beautiful town and worth a visit.
