Our Mission: To present as accurate as possible an understanding of the Bible that is true to itself and the Lord who wrote it with the end result of providing directives, answers, and a well lighted path for eternal life and living abundantly before the Lord God.
Our belief is that God intended His Word to have ONE correct meaning or interpretation. We do not pretend to have that meaning in all areas. However, it is our goal to try to come to that meaning by careful Exegesis. Exegesis is the science of Bible Interpretation that takes into account at least three important principles: (1) The Historical Background of when the Bible was written to discern word and custom meanings; (2) The original Old Testament Hebrew, Aramaic and New Testament Koine Greek languages in which the Scriptures were originally
composed; and (3) Allowing by comparison of Scripture with Scripture, the Bible to be the best interpreter of Itself.
Based upon a sound exegesis of the Scriptures will come the practical directives and answers that can change both individual lives and society to fulfill the promise of Jesus that He came to bring LIFE and LIFE more abundantly (John 10:10b).

How to Have Eternal Life
The Bible is very clear. Salvation and Eternal Life are available from God through the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. He died on the Cross to pay for our sins. If we will put our personal faith in Him, the gift of eternal life is ours!
"White Papers" are detailed Biblical studies on specific topics of interest to the growing Christian. The following Biblical Papers are presented:
Disqualification from Spiritual Leadership
With a growing number of spiritual leaders becoming involved in major sins, trust is waning. It is therefore important to see how the Lord Himself handled His human leaders when they made choices to immerse themselves into areas of major sin. If Biblical Christianity is going to prosper, then the leadership must stand to the Biblical tests and meet the Lord's qualifications. This is where our "white papers" begin.Forgiveness - Forgiveness among Believers
This paper was originally prepared for a 1996 Pastor's Conference. It was set in a two column format that had the points presented in the left column and the scriptures from which they were derived in the right column. To place this on the "web," the formatting was changed to place the scriptures under the points.
One of the most misunderstood areas of Christian Living is our relationship with other Believers in when and how to forgive or what to do in seeking forgiveness. This critical study of Scripture seeks to give some specific answers to those questions.
This paper was originally prepared for a 1997 Pastor's Conference and subsequently published in the Journal of Chafer Theological Seminary.
The Days of Debra - the Abdication of Men from Headship
One of the problems with the church of our day is that men have retreated from their God-given position of "Headship." This was clearly evident during the days of Debra, a judge in Israel. This paper is strongly based upon the excellent treatment of this subject by John Piper and Wayne Grudem in their book Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.The Biblical Definition of Love
The paper was originally prepared for a 1992 pastors conference on the subject of Evangelical Feminism.
God has given us His definition of Love in the Bible. The Scriptures are clear that the most basic aspect of "love" is directly related to keeping the commandments of God. Beyond this basic definition, the Scriptures spell out in sixteen important aspects which are taken up in detail to define love.
