Apostolic Proclamation

Someone noticed that when Pericles spoke, people said “How well he speaks;” but when Demosthenes spoke, people said “Let us march.”

A Quote Too Good Not To Share

“The gospel that the first century apostles preached was one of Christ’s lordship and God’s pure and unfailing grace in Him.  Paul of Tarsus, for example, did not forge people together with rules, religious duty, or legalism.  Instead he preached a gospel of grace so high and so powerful that it kicked down the gates of hell–setting the Jew free of religious duty and the Gentile free of immorality.  His was a double-barreled, two-fisted gospel.”
