BUILD A BELIEVER - Ephesians 4:13

While the Pastor at Madison Baptist Church our weekly church paper this article:
  • If we do God's work in God's way at God's time with God's power, we shall have God's blessings and the devil's curse.
  • The World is not looking or waiting for a new definition of the Gospel, but for a new demonstration of the power of the Gospel.


  • A very simple but very sublime thing: to live in time and for eternity under the eye of God and by His steps.

How much more would a few good and fervent men effect the ministry than a multitude of lukewarm ones!
