Does your Church have a Covenant? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Josh Winslett

Many churches of yesteryear would write a document detailing what is expected of its members. This is called a Church Covenant. Just as a Statement of Belief is a document detailing what members agree they believe, a Church Covenant details what they contract themselves to do. In essence, a covenant is what we as members pledge to do upon joining.

The Godly Tentmakers - Aquila & Priscilla PDF Print E-mail

“Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.” – Rom. 16:3-4

 

We are first introduced to the godly couple of Aquila and Priscilla as Paul arrives in Corinth in Acts 18:2. They were Jewish tentmakers who had fled Italy under the discriminatory decree of Claudius Caesar expelling Jews from Rome. The couple comes in contact with Paul because they were of the same profession (they were tentmakers), and Paul comes to reside with them during his ministry in Corinth (Acts 18:3-4). They are presented initially as simply quiet, unassuming disciples of Christ, but these simple tentmakers had a profound impact on the kingdom of God and on the first-century church.

Many modern church historians claim that Baptist perpetuity, the belief that the Baptist Church is the only true Church that Jesus Christ established and has existed since the first century under various names, was fabricated by Baptist minister, J. R. Graves. Graves lived from 1820-1893. Most then would place Landmarkism, falsely so called, only appearing around the 1850s and no time before. With this claim in mind, let's examine the following quote from The Autobiography of Elder Wilson Thompson:

"There was a man sent from God, whose name was John." John 1:6

The apostle John uses this language to remind the reader that John was not the eternal Word, but was just a man sent from God.

God Telleth The Stars PDF Print E-mail

“He telleth the numbers of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” – Psalm 147:4

 

Stars were created by God on the fourth day of the creation week, after He had made the sun and the moon. After a detailed explanation of the creation of the sun and moon are made for all five verses of the fourth day, God’s creation of the numerous stars of the sky is presented as almost an afterthought – “he made the stars also” (Gen. 1:16).  When we think about the vast, truly incomprehensible multitude of stars in the universe, it’s quite amazing that God not only knows the total number, but He even calls each one by its own divine name.
