Called To Preach

For whosoever shall call upon

The Name of The Lord shall be saved.

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach except they be sent?

...How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things.

Rom: 10:13-15

By the grace of God, Saints all over the world have been called to preach the good news to those who have not heard. It is the purpose of this website to provide a map of the preaching territory.

In other words, to give some direction to preachers, associate preachers, evangelists and missionaries. Many churches are inadequately prepared to give associate preachers intensive training, to say nothing of training for evangelists and missionaries. So one of our goals is to come along side the church and provide a helping hand.

We also want to provide a space where believers can respond to contemporary issues, ask biblical and theological questions, or just give inspiring information about kingdom building. Our blog will be our meeting place.

Here are some of the areas we will provide training:

  • Power of Preaching
  • The Call to Preach
  • Preaching your 1st Sermon
  • Practice Preaching

  • Study a Preaching Passage
  • Developing an Outline
  • Preacher Notes
  • Evangelism
  • Ordination Process
  • Special Preaching Skills
  • Preaching Resources
  • Delivery Skills

Nothing is completely original. Particularly, nothing that you read on this site or that you will find on our blog, is completely original; both represent my interpretation of a collection of ideas, methods, discussion, and teaching from other ministers whom I have met, read or studied under along the way.

On this site I have done my best to credit other ministers with ideas I got from them. I am quite sure that I have missed some of the credits, for which I hope you will forgive me.

I am equally sure that some ministers who read about some of these concepts and methods will say, “Wait a minute, that's mine”, or “hey that sounds familiar” or “that's just called something else.” Again, apologies. Try writing an original blues tune that does not use one of the standards for cords!

Finally, in some cases, I may have credited another minister for the source of a piece of information on a method. That does not mean that the accredited minister is the sole inventor of that method or idea; it only means that I got it from that person.

The only thing that is truly original is your own interpretation of the methods that are discussed on this website.

Here is where I stand:

I believe that in the beginning God created man so that he shares a sameness in nature with all living things i.e., life with its inherent ability to reproduce after its own kind.

Further, God made a difference in creating man—by creating him in His own image i.e., man as a self-conscious and God-conscious being. Functionally, like God man’s essence is found in agape, self-giving, relational existence. This imago dei is actualized by living in the primary relationship (God-consciousness) which is between God and man.

Because of sin and the consequence death of man i.e., a de-energized imago dei, God sent His Son, Jesus the Christ, into the world to save sinners and restore a broken primary relationship. This Jesus was a man, ‘homoousion hemin’, of the same reality as we are ourselves in our humanness. Jesus was the Christ, ‘homoousion to patri’, of the same reality as God in his divinity. When we see Jesus, we see the one who is both God and man.

This same Jesus overcame sin, death on a cross and hell by maintaining humility, obedience and faith in God the Father unto death. His death is the highest example of agape. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the confirmation that His existence was slavic for all men and authentic in relation to God the Father. Thus, Jesus not only shows the way for man to abridge his brokenness with God. Jesus, the Christ is the way.

Those who follow the way of Christ are called to go into the world and proclaim the good news (kerygma) that this same Jesus makes possible authentic being to all men. He does so through the church which is his body. The church is that assembly of men and women who through Christ seek to bring all things into unity and holiness with God.

Further, I agree with the fathers in worshipping one God in Trinity. There is one person the Father, the person of the Son, and the person of the Holy Spirit; but the Godhead of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit is all one. A God who is one in three and three in one, one substance and three persons.
