Why is modern art so bad?

Relativism affects not only morality but also many other aspects of our society including art. This five-minute Youtube film exposes how modern art promotes mediocrity and banality in the name of freedom of expression. Relativism produces ugliness as well as wickedness, and a whole lot more as well!

Tyndale and the early reformers

Tyndale and the Early Reformers

This year we celebrate 500 years since Martin Luther launched the Reformation in the German town of Wittenberg. In the coming weeks we will be launching a special page with news and resources for your information and encouragement, but here is a great place to start. Michael Reeves has put together a series of messages that are accessible to everyone. Be inspired and challenged as you listen and ask: “Do we need a new Reformation in our own churches today?”

The Gospel

The Gospel

Sharing the gospel message with family, friends, work colleagues and neighbours can be daunting, but if we are really well prepared and we have thought carefully about our approach it can give us much more confidence. We have put together this summary as resource to help us to that end. May the Lord encourage us all to be bold and compassionate as we make known the saving power of Christ Jesus to all who are willing to listen.

A plea from the UK

For a number of years, Prof Jim Renihan has been visiting the UK encouraging us to return to our confessional roots and build churches that are distinctively Reformed Baptist, committed to the 1689 Confession. Along with a team of men over in the States, Prof Renihan has been training young men for the ministry through the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies, based at Westminster Seminary in California. Plans are now afoot to establish a stand-alone seminary based on the 1689 Confession, and we were asked to produce a short film showing our support for the project and our need for more help on this side of the Atlantic, where the Confession was born! If you would like more information, or you are interested in hearing more about the ministry of IRBS and Prof Renihan in particular, please contact us using the contact button on the website.

Mercy in Our time of Failure

Is prayer a gift granted to some Christians, but not others?
Is prayer answered on the basis of our good performance, or God’s good grace?
Is prayer for those who have earned a hearing with God, or for those who know they will never earn anything from God, least of all answers to our prayers?
Is prayer something we need to ration and limit because God might run out of patience with our requests, or run out of resources to answer us?
Is prayer to be offered up hesitatingly and doubtfully, wondering if we will be heard, or confidently and with assurance in Christ’s name, knowing that He will answer?
Let Leith Samuel answer these questions in the word of his hymn:

Mercy in our time of failure,
grace to help in time of need:
this sure promise of our Saviour
is a word that we may plead.

He has passed into the heavens,
He is seated on the throne,
ever for us interceding,
always caring for His own.

There is none He will not welcome,
no request He cannot meet;
let us not be slow to ask Him,
lay our burdens at His feet.

We can never come too often,
never with a need too great,
never with a prayer too simple;
only fear to come too late!

Daily on our pilgrim journey
praise Him for His matchless grace,
live for His immortal glory
till in heaven we see His face.

c Mrs E Samuel
