SARDIS and The Seven Churches

The same Church that unlocked the Bible for the world, becomes the Church that hides it in obscurity. The reformation Churches are those that the Church of Sardis Represents, it has a name that it lives but is DEAD. These are the DEAD Churches today who have nothing to say of the times we live and nothing to add to the discussion. They try in vain to stand up against perversion, but they have taken away the foundation from which to stand. They have intellectualised the simple Gospel of Christ and have made the word of God of “none effect”. Rather than simply “believe on the Lord Jesus and thou shalt be saved”, they created a flowery acronym to explain that which the Bible does not teach. While the Reformation Church “received and heard” that which was good, they have forgotten “how” they have “received and heard”. A few names stood well and continue to stand, most however have “defiled their garments”, and with the doctrines of Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, Sola Gracia, which they have forgotten, “are ready to die”. God bless you.

The Seven Churches: THYATIRA

Thyatira, The Corrupt Church. WHAT IS YOUR PRICE? It is no surprise that both Geographically, Historically and Philosophically we move from the Compromising Church of PERGAMOS, to the Corrupt Church of Thyatira. How much of our faith in Christ needs to be COMPROMISED before it is corrupted? What PRICE are we willing to accept to CORRUPT ourselves? Is it even monetary? Perhaps it is only to keep our jobs. Perhaps it is only to be accepted by our peers. WHAT IS YOUR PRICE?

The Seven Churches: PERGAMOS

PERGAMOS: The Compromising Church in history. The Compromising Church Period of history. The Compromising Church TYPE of history. The Compromising Christian in History.


Lives have been transformed by the Lord across the world for near two thousand years. Real people with real lives have gone from darkness to light in their own personal way. With most of these same lives we can all find something to relate to and we hear of their journey to Christ.
These are some from Hope Baptist Church.


Will We?

The right answer can change the world, but what is the right question?

Apt To Teach

It is difficult to consider what else can be more important than that which has an impact that shall last for eternity. It is the Gospel therefore that must take its precedence over everything else, the Gospel we must all be apt to teach. Therefore, it is the preaching of the word of God that is the work that must be attended to with all diligence so that many may be made disciples.

For Thy Truth’s Sake

“Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake” Psalm 115:1 The Camp Report 2023 There are times when there can simply be no other explanation as to how things work out, in every form and manner this camp simply should not have been the blessing that it was, “BUT GOD”! It seems that the entire event was simply to prove the simplicity of the Gospel “for…

The Biblical Church and The Government

In the light of recent events and in the knowledge of the precedents that have been set, and further in the recognition that many pastors have awoken to the errors they had attended to in their misled choice in obeying the government above that obedience that is to be found in God alone, I have re posted this article written near a year ago in the hope it may encourage some.

Remembrance Day, But Have We Forgotten?

Remembrance Day, a day in which we call to mind those who paid the ultimate price for the liberties we have enjoyed, but for far too long we seem to have forgotten why the price was paid, how it was gained and what this world truly has to offer.
Vaccinated against Division

Vaccinated Against Division

Vaccinated Against Division 1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all,…
False Teachers

“I Have Not Sent Them”

I Have Not Sent Them Are All Pastors Sent By God? I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. Jeremiah 23:21 It was ancient Babylon that the idea of the infallibility of the priest was first identified. Alexander Hyslop makes mention of the Priests of the mystery religions holding peculiar knowledge and were held with an esteem that was above reproach. Sadly, the idea that a priest, prophet, king or…

Ministries of Hope

Privileged we are for the opportunity to teach and to tell of the hope all people can experience and know for certain. The Gospel is our resting place, it is where all people can come to know true joy.

Below are the avenues through which we teach and tell.

Prayer Meeting and Bible Study

Prayer Meeting and Bible Study A wonderfully intimate time where members and guests of the Church come together to both pray and study. Seeing the burden of everyday life and the many needs not only of members within the Church but the community and the nation in general. The Bible gives us clear instruction to pray for our Nation and particularly our leaders saying;  I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made…
