The analogy of Jesus Christ as the foundation and cornerstone of the Church and the Christian Faith is one of the most beautiful pictures in the Bible. Understanding it will help one to know why Christianity is the only hope for salvation and success in life, and why the Church that we read about in the Bible is the only Church that will stand and succeed in its divine purpose. We hope that this lesson will encourage and edify you.
Today we post an audio sermon from evangelist Kevin Presley about the marvelous grace of God exemplified in the life of Mephibosheth, a castaway who was allowed to sit at the King’s table. God gives that same grace to each submissive servant who is obedient to the faith. God be thanked for His mercy!
This sermon is the first installment in a new series entitled: Why the Church of Christ?
We live in an era of individualism and personalization. Even religion has not escaped the compulsion to customize everything. Because of this, people often give little thought to which church they attend.
This series is designed to show that the Church is a part of God’s plan to save mankind from sin, death and hell; also, that Jesus built one Church and purchased that Church with His own blood. It is our conviction that the only true church is the Church identified in the Bible.
It is our hope that after studying all will plainly see that we need to be in His Church. Today’s sermon by evangelist Clint De France examines the question: Who Established the Church of Christ? Let us look to the Bible for an answer to this question. We will consider the implications of an “established church” and also look through history at some facts concerning the origin of various human denominations. Please listen!
Today’s post is an enlightening chapter study given by evangelist Don King on First Corinthians Chapter Four. Don labors in this sermon to ‘get inside the head’ of the Apostle Paul, that great lover of the brethren everywhere and especially of the Gentile church. How much we owe the Apostle for his tireless exertions to spread the gospel to the undeserving prodigals that were our ancestors.
For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men. (1 Co 4:9).
Today’s sermon by evangelist Don King is about a lesson learned too late by a young prophet of God. Don’s text comes from 1 Kings 13:18:
He said to him, “I too am a prophet as you are, and an angel spoke to me by the word of the Lord, saying, ‘Bring him back with you to your house, that he may eat bread and drink water.’” (He was lying to him.)
The young prophet in this passage listened to the lying words of an older prophet and it cost him his life. The lesson that false religious leaders may lie too you is a lesson we need to take to heart right now! We hope you listen carefully to this sermon.
LANDMARK Q&A is an ongoing segment where we attempt to answer questions from our viewers. This week’s inquiry is about the meaning of the phrase, “calling on the name of the Lord.” This wonderful statement is made in the Bible’s books of history, prophecy, poetry, sermons, and epistles, so it behooves Bible students to understand its meaning.
Have you ever wondered why Jesus called Judas His friend?
“But Jesus said to him, ‘Friend, why have you come?’ Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him.” (Matthew 26:50)
Why did Jesus refer to Judas in such an intimate way? He was in the very act of betraying His Lord with a kiss! In today’s article we attempt to answer this question and examine how we can truly be the ‘friend’ of God.
Today’s sermon relates the stirring account of David sacrificing to God on Mount Moriah. When offered the oxen for the sacrifice for free, David replied:
“No, but I will surely buy it from you for a price; nor will I offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God with that which costs me nothing.” (2 Samuel 24: 24)
What a remarkable religious ethic David demonstrated!
Evangelist Don King states: “Do you realize it is not a sacrifice unless it costs something? Service to God, if it is to have any genuine and lasting value is always a costly affair.” David’s admirable attitude is far from our modern pampered, indulgent, and coddled ‘padded pew’ air conditioned theology.
Today we post an article by brother Andrew Richardson which addresses a very topical subject. Is it appropriate to use instruments in the worship of our Lord in the church? Many denominations believe so and variously generated musical sound waves waft through the air at any given congregation.
Is God pleased with this? Is this something that a Christian needs to consider? Please read brother Richardson’s article and give thought to Who has Lordship over Christian practices.
Today we are proud to present the first of a number of sermons given by evangelist Don King in a meeting held at the Rice Road church of Christ from October Wednesday 22nd to Sunday the 26th. The topics are varied and brilliantly proclaimed by Brother King. We hope you enjoy.
As a follow-up to our article posted earlier this week on the religion of Islam, Clint De France and Shahe Gergian sit down to discuss some viewer questions. It is our ultimate hope that these posts will help Christians to reach out to their Muslim neighbors with the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
This week on Christianlandmark we consider the titanic Islamic religion which boasts 1.6 billion adherents worldwide. Click on the photo above or the text below for an informative article written by evangelist Shahe Gergian. On Friday we will post a question and answer video. We hope you will join us as we learn about what the Muslim religion teaches!
Have you ever doubted God’s love? If you have, today’s sermon by evangelist Clint De France might encourage you. The text comes from an idea found in the last book of the Old Testament:
“I have loved you,” says the Lord. “Yet you say, ‘In what way have You loved us?'” (Malachi 1:2)
Today’s post is an enthralling sermon by evangelist Clint De France on the Mosaic Tabernacle of God.
This is the tabernacle that young King David fled to escape from Saul, eat holy bread, and receive the sword of Goliath. This is the tent that the High Priest Eli watched over while young Samuel slept nearby. This is the building and its furnishings that point to the magnificent church of Christ that provides safety for all those who will escape the clutches of sin and destruction. Please spend some time listening to this classic sermon topic today and consider the omniscient knowledge of our amazing God.

Today’s post is a sermon on growing in Christ from 2 Peter 1:10: “If you do these things you shall never fall…” The man-made doctrine of ‘once saved always saved’ is a false doctrine and this section of scripture is just one of the places where Calvin’s demonic doctrine is discredited and disproved.
The Bible teaches that because of sin man cast out of the good graces of God. How can man be made right in the sight of God? Evangelist Joe Hisle retells the greatest story ever told. Listen and thrill your heart with the glorious gospel of God’s grace to us.
In this sermon evangelist Joe Hisle addresses some ‘strange’ teachings of the modern denominational world.
(As a technical note to this sermon, the audio dramatically improves around 5 1/2 minutes into the sermon. As God’s word teaches, if you persevere and persist, you will be rewarded!)
If you had died last night, what would be on your mind? Would it be TV shows, making money, taking college classes, or playing video games? Perhaps you might be concerned with marriage and buying a home? In this sermon by evangelist Joe Hisle we learn that the seemingly important trivia of this life fade into obscurity when a soul passes into the afterlife. Joe entreats us to have hyperacute spiritual vision now—while there is still time to make changes that will please our God.
Today we post an edifying and challenging sermon by evangelist Greg Gay. In this sermon we learn that as Christians we don’t have a temporary relationship with our Lord. Our bond with God is abiding, it is durable, it is eternal!
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:58
Today we post the Q&A session that followed evangelist Greg Gay’s insightful presentation on the restoration and post-modernism.
Today we post evangelist Greg Gay’s amazing sermon on the history of philosophy, religious restoration, and post-modernism. Greg concisely sums up the current situation and shines light on the reason people reject absolute truth in today’s culture. How can we as Christians best counteract the effect that man’s thinking has on the Lord’s church in the 21st century? We hope you will listen.
Today we post the Q&A session that followed evangelist Roger Boone’s presentation on ‘Restoring Primitive Christianity.’
