    Who we are and whose we are determines how we fight.

    Our orders are to take up the armor of God, to stand firm, and we do this through a peace-making Gospel and a faith that shields.

    Followers of Jesus need preparation and protection in spiritual battle.

  • Group Witness
    Dan Green—March 30

    When we share the Gospel as a group of people at the same time, we call this “fishing with a net.” When we share as a group, there are synergies that multiply the impact of the witness.

  • What’s on the Menu?
    Gary Webb—March 26

    Do you remember as a kid coming home and asking what’s for dinner? Based on the answer, there was probably a groan or a cheer. Maybe your kids or spouse ask the same question.

  • In Defense of Wearing Green
    Beau Stanley—March 23

    Next year when Saint Patrick’s Day comes around, you might be excited about the holiday or you might not be enthused about all that accompanies it in here the States (I’m told it’s much more solemn in Ireland). You might not even have a drop of Irish blood.

  • Untitled Poem
    Danny Nathan—March 9

    The tattered, filthy, stinky man
    Slumps against the dumpster.
    His eyes are glazing, glassy, and
    His hair is mussed and knotted.

  • The Apostles’ Teachings
    Dan Green—March 5

    Sometimes I’ve thought that if I had been a part of the early Church and personally heard the teaching of the Apostles, then I would be a better witness than I am today.

  • Relationship is the Context for Discipleship
    Dustin Speaks—March 2

    Recently I’ve been disturbed by a trend I see in American church culture. Basically, we tend to relegate discipleship to the classroom, hoping that people who get the right kind of information will begin to live the right kind of lives.

  • Carried Through Difficult Circumstances
    Gary Webb—February 26

    Have you ever felt like your life was a little like the Warner Brothers’ Roadrunner cartoon of the 60s and 70s? Unfortunately, your character is not the roadrunner, who miraculously escapes every peril. Instead, yours is that of the coyote.

  • Is Grace Unmanly?
    Beau Stanley—February 23

    Is it possible that we might lack zeal not because we’ve made too much of grace but because we’ve made too little of it?

  • The Reliability and Value of John 8
    Mike Yoder—February 21

    Few people doubt that its message from Jesus and its historicity match what we find elsewhere in the Bible. But many people doubt whether it belongs as holy Scripture in this part of John, in the Gospels, and indeed in the Bible itself.

  • You Can’t Have Monday–Saturday Discipleship Without Sunday
    Zac Hess—February 19

    My kids were essentially sick for the entire month of January. I cleaned up more vomit in that month than I have in a lifetime, and it’s a miracle our son didn’t end up in the hospital due to dehydration.
