Do you have a yearning to worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:24) but at the same time you are confused about which church is the Lord’s church? Is it possible to find the 1st century church of scripture still alive and well in the 21st century?
The answer is yes! Evangelist Clint Defrance addresses this topical issue and shows that from a human perspective this quest seems impossible but you can know the church that Jesus referred to as ‘My church’ (Matt 16:18).
Today we are reposting our interview with evangelist Paul Nichols from back in 2011. We think you will find this discussion to be edifying, enlightening, and entertaining as Paul relates some of the fascinating details of his long life of service to the Lord. In particular, Paul discusses his position of being opposed to military service and carnal warfare.
In today’s sermon evangelist Jerry Dickinson relates an incident where a faithful prophet of God decides to stand alone and speak the truth– regardless of the cost.
7 And Jehoshaphat said, “Is there not still a prophet of the Lord here, that we may inquire of Him?”8 So the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of the Lord; but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.” (1 Ki 22:7–8).

In the golden text of the Bible, the Savior said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). It is vitally important that students of the Scriptures understand the full meaning and import of these word, thus evangelist Nate Bibens helps our appreciation of the incredible statement Jesus made so long ago.
“Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away. And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst” (John 19:16-18).
In part two of “Bible Basics,” evangelist Greg Gay focuses on two vitally important issues pertaining to how we view and handle the word of God: choosing a proper English translation, and utilizing an appropriate interpretive methodology, also known as hermeneutics.
Jesus told the Samaritan women, “the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:23-24). What does it mean to worship in spirit and truth and how does this statement from the Lord apply today? Evangelist Clint De France discusses the congregational worship of Christians.
