Theology 101 – Justification (38 min)

PART 2 of 6 – In the second part of a 6-part series on the fundamentals of the gospel, Mr Jim Allen speaks on the essential biblical topic of justification. Justification is not the ‘making’ of a person righteous: it is the ‘declaring’ of a person righteous. How can this be done? By grace. The condemned guilty sinner has nothing to plead; but God has set forth Christ as the propitiation for our sins. Every charge has been met and…

Creation Part 4 – Ape Men and a Young Earth (40 min)

PART 4 of 10 – In Part 4, Norman Crawford speaks on numerous subjects surrounding the first man Adam, and also the age of the earth. Adam was the first man; there was no race of men, nor was there death, before him. The fossilized remains of humans around the globe, among which so-called ‘Neanderthals’ are to be included, were mostly buried during Noah’s flood. The earth was created a few thousand years ago as a mature creation by a…

“One day I intended to be saved…” (12 min)

Redmond Blair from Vancouver, Canada, tells his story of conversion. Brought up hearing the gospel and memorizing Scripture, as “Reddie” grew older he became careless and lived for the enjoyments of the world. Awakened by the salvation of a friend, Reddie spend months searching for salvation, even daily reading his Bible alone at work in the lunch break, but he found he was much darker than ever he had realised and couldn’t find salvation. Then a cousin got saved; but…

Theology 101 – Human Depravity (38 min)

PART 1 of 6 – In the first part of a 6-part series on the fundamentals of the gospel, Mr Jim Allen speaks clearly and powerfully on the little understood and oft-avoided topic of human depravity. Rarely taken up in ministry as a stand-alone subject, this is a solid, essential and wide-ranging setting forth of biblical truth. Not only for gospel preachers, but also for elders, parents, Sunday School teachers – indeed, all of us – this message will prove…

“I never thought I’d be an adult and not saved” (24 min)

Seth McKinley, from Vancouver, Canada, grew up in a Christian family, knowing the gospel and memorizing Scripture. He was soft towards the gospel as a child, and at one point thought he was saved, but as the teenage years came he rebelled against the gospel and decided he would just “do his own thing”. University took him further away, but the prayers of his parents followed him and the Holy Spirit began to work in his heart. Listen to the…

Sitting Exams in God’s School (28 min)

When we were saved, we not only became sons in God’s family, but students in God’s school. Every so often throughout our lives there’s a test – an exam – and through these various tests and trials, God proves us and refines us, to be more like His Son. David Gilliland looks at 6 tests in the history of God’s people in the Old Testament and draws lessons for us today. The tests are: the Moriah test, the Marah test,…

A God Who Is Able (28 min)

Faced with being thrown alive into a “burning fiery furnace”, the three Hebrews in Daniel Ch 3 told King Nebuchadnezzar that “God is able to deliver us”. What kind of faith is it that believes in a “God who is able” even in such extreme circumstances? Andrew Ussher passes on an encouraging word to remind us that in every difficult, trying and worrying situation in which we find ourselves, God is always able. Readings: Dan 3:8-18, Heb 11:17-19, 2 Tim…

Creation Part 3 – Fossils and the Flood (34 min)

PART 3 of 10 – In part 3, Norman Crawford speaks on one of the main predictions of Darwin’s theory of evolution: that the ground beneath our feet should contain millions of ‘transitional fossils’. There’s only one problem: it doesn’t! But what about fossils? How did they come to be? Mr Crawford explains that the flood of Noah is the reason why there are billions of fossils all over the world, including on the top of mountains. Mr Crawford explains…

Bert Joyce – The Early Days in Newfoundland and Labrador (33 min)

Bert Joyce (1927-2017) was saved as a 12 year old boy, sitting at the back of a Hall observing the breaking of bread meeting. As he listened to the singing of When I Survey the Wondrous Cross he pondered its deep significance to the believers sitting in the circle.

This is a question you cannot avoid: what will you do – receive or reject the Son of God? Preaching in a Gospel Tent many years ago, this is Mr Paisley in full flow, telling out the same gospel that so radically changed his…
