Parental Priorities

What is the relevance of the institution of marriage? Do men and women have distinct roles within a family? What primary principles must parents establish in the hearts and minds of their children?

To these and other critical issues, the scriptures speak unequivocally in directing us to the foundational truths for marriage and family life. In the series Parental Priorities, Alistair Begg presents the Biblical answers to the questions of our culture regarding:
-The meaning and responsibilities of fatherhood
-The pattern for and priorities of motherhood
-Women in the workplace and single working mothers
-What makes a Christian family distinctive

Who Is Jesus?

As men and women both inside and outside the church become increasingly confused about what they believe and why, it is imperative that we make sure that we have a solid grasp of the "essentials." Nowhere is this more necessary than in the matter of the person and work of Jesus Christ. If we are able to identify the fraudulent statements concerning Christ which are found in Mormonism and other cults, we must pay careful attention to biblical truth. It is essential that we are able to clearly answer the questions: What did He say? What does it mean and ...

Useful to the Master

Paul’s second letter to Timothy issues a direct challenge to all who are tempted to embrace pragmatism at the expense of truth. Timothy is confronted by confusion in the realm of doctrine and morality. It was vital that he understood the absolute priority of defining and declaring the gospel so as to be able to speak with authority in an age of uncertainty. Some 2000 years later we face the same challenge and these studies prepare us to meet it.

Household of Faith, Volume 1

For many, the Church is merely a gathering of people participating in religious activities. But the Bible makes clear that what God desires is a relationship with His children. When individuals grasp the immensity of God’s grace and respond in faith, they are born again by His Spirit and are incorporated into the Household of Faith.

In this series, Alistair Begg explores the first five chapters of 1Timothy, noting how keen Paul was to ensure that Timothy fulfilled his duties with moral integrity and Biblical authority. Recognizing that godly leadership was vital for the progress of the Church, ...

The Perfected Kingdom, Part Three

The Bible makes it clear that we are heading toward the end of redemptive history. The message of the end is vital and has eternal significance. One out of every one person dies, and the necessity of faith should not be ignored or missed. God’s Word informs us that the Book of Life will be opened and a great division will take place between those who believe and those who do not. Unbelievers will face the reality of being thrown into the Lake of Fire, separated from God forever. Is your name in the Book of Life?

The Perfected Kingdom, Part Four

The prospect of a new heaven and new earth brings great anticipation and expectation. Much has been written and discussed regarding the varying opinions of what the new world will be like. Paradise will be restored as all of God’s promises will be fulfilled and all believers will be united in Christ, submitting to God’s rule, and experiencing God’s blessing. Turning to God’s Word, Alistair provides biblical details from the closing chapters of Revelation to help us fully understand and wait with hope for the perfected kingdom of God.

The Proclaimed Kingdom, Part Two

When Jesus first arrived, he ushered in a “now” dimension to the kingdom of God. But there is also a “not yet” dimension to be fulfilled when He returns again. Jesus clearly told his disciples that there would be a great delay before His return. Why? To answer that question Alistair teaches us about a command and a promise Jesus gave. Find out why we are either those to whom the message of the kingdom needs to come, or those from whom the message needs to proceed.

Who is the Holy Spirit and what does He do? Those are real questions for many who too often neglect His role as part of the Godhead. As Alistair continues our study in the “Proclaimed Kingdom,” we see that the Holy Spirit is vital in bringing us to faith, equipping us to serve and tell others about Jesus, and producing holiness in our lives. All of this is part of making us God’s people in God’s place under God’s rule and blessing.

How and where can a person meet God? Men and women who sense a void in their lives are looking for something when they should be looking for someone. To meet God, we must meet Jesus.

The Proclaimed Kingdom, Part One

All sinners are alienated from God, and God’s wrath for sin demands punishment. But by His grace, God sends His Son to offer all people redemption from the bondage of sin.

We become part of God’s family by grace, through faith. Jesus died to bear the punishment our sins deserve and He gathers all believers into His kingdom, not because of who we are, or what we have done, but because of who Jesus is and what Jesus has done.

God’s prophets speak the Word of God and foretell the wonderful future still to come. However many false prophets worship fake gods and make great statements, telling people what they want to hear and failing to inform them of God’s impending judgment. Speaking through His prophets, God continues to point to the future when God’s people will live in God’s place under God’s rule and blessing. Everyone will stand before God in judgment.

Listen as Alistair takes us on a jet tour through the prophets to discover the amazing story of transformed lives, renewed hearts and a new world.

It has been said that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it, and the 10th and 11th chapters of 1 Corinthians are ripe with examples and warnings to the Christian who will heed them.

How far does Christian liberty extend? Is there a guideline for men and women in their relationship to one another and towards God? How may we correctly observe the Lord’s Supper?

These issues are as relevant to day as they were in the early church. In general, when it came to spiritual things, the church in Corinth was a church that ...

The Partial Kingdom - God's Place

God delivers the Israelites out of slavery and sends them on a journey with Moses. The journey takes 40 years during which frustration, ungratefulness and disbelief settle in. Even after seeing God part the Red Sea, the Israelites refuse to rely on God in faith and in turn, God responds in judgment. Alistair teaches us that we need to heed an important lesson from Israel’s history: to have thankful hearts for God’s provision.

We turn to Leviticus for a deeper understanding of how God saves by substitution.

How could a nation be born through him when his wife appeared barren? Yet, in his old age, Sarah gave birth to Isaac. So why does God immediately tell Abraham to offer him as a sacrifice? In this study we can learn from Abraham what it means to have unwavering faith.

Alistair teaches us that God was not caught off guard when sin entered the world and that before time began, God had planned for man’s rescue. Nonetheless, sin must face accountability. Learn how, even in judgment, through grace God reaches out to redeem His people for His glory.

God is the author and king of creation. In Genesis, God declared that what He made was good. When Satan deceived Adam and Eve, God’s perfect kingdom was immediately spoiled by sin and rebellion.

A Basic Prayer Life... Most of the Time

A survey of pastors recently revealed that a scant 16% were satisfied with their prayer life. Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile takes us to Paul's first letter to Timothy to show us the basic, yet oft ignored Christian discipline of prayer. With a pastor's heart, Thabiti uses 1 Timothy 2 to discuss what we are to pray, why we pray, and how we are called to pray. For all pastors, the gentle reminder that before we talk to men about God, we should be talking to God about men is a basic which we can never tire of hearing.

When the truth of the Gospel is threatened by those who have crept into the Church, contending for the faith is essential. As Alistair Begg reminds us, though, contending for truth is only one part of the pastor's charge to care for his congregation.

A Call to Commitment

Understanding that a commitment to Christ happens individually, Christians must heed the warning of Scripture not to live in isolation. An unreserved commitment to Christ carries with it a commitment to the Body of Christ. In this sermon Alistair Begg shares the necessity of such a commitment as well as three barriers to fulfilling our purpose within the local church: ignorance of our purpose, inferiority to it, and independence from the Body of Christ.

Repent and Be Baptized

As we look through the book of Acts, we see that as Jesus' followers obeyed the Lord's command to make disciples of all nations, people believed in in the Lord Jesus and were baptized without delay.

As we come to the close of Mark, it may seem that his Gospel account ends rather abruptly. But looking back through the book, we see that it is consistent with Mark's typical fast-paced writing style - in fact, it can provoke the reader's curiosity to learn more about our Lord's resurrection.

Does the certainty of God's judgment have any significance for Christians? Our position is Christ is certain.

Notes From the Flyleaf of My Bible

Alistair Begg shares words of wisdom from the flyleaf of his Bible with students on the threshold of a new academic year. First, if Jesus Christ is worth serving, He is worth serving well. Second, the matter of our head is an important matter: how we think and how we think about ourselves. Third, if our prayer is meager, then it is because we believe it to be supplemental and not fundamental. Fourth, relationships are vital. Finally, most spiritual progress is made through the difficult days and not through the days that yield success.
