"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ; for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (Romans 1:16)

A Bible-Centered Church

"A good church is a Bible-centered church. Nothing is as important as this-not a large congregation, witty pastor, or tangible experiences of the Holy Spirit." - Alistair Begg
