FEATURED FRESH SERMON OF THE DAY
KNOWING CHRIST BETTER: Join Our Tour of the New Testament
These are challenging times. More than ever, we need the Word made flesh. We need Jesus. The best way to know the Word is to study the New Testament. One the next two years we will do just that, through Dr. Edington’s sermons from Matthew to Revelation.
The best way to keep the Word fresh is to offer those sermons on a daily basis. We start with 12 sermons focusing on our choice to follow Christ, followed by ten sermons designed to help us let Christ guide our lives. Then we tour the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Acts, Romans, Ephesians, Philippians and ultimately Revelation.
Each day, there is a new sermon to explore. Each day, there is a fresh Word to help better connect ourselves with our Lord and Savior. Each day, there is hope and faith.

Dr. Edington frequently preached multiple sermons (known as a sermon series) on a particular book of the Bible, or characters, themes and events found within the Bible. The sermon series are grouped together by sub-categories focusing on Christian events (such as Christmas; Lent), and on topics relevant to today (Home and Family; Christian Life; Generosity).
Like so many of us, you may be experiencing loneliness, disappointment or searching for God’s love. Dr. Edington spent his career addressing these issues.
