Free Grace Baptist Church Media Committee

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. (Matthew 5:6)

Free Grace Baptist Church, acting prayerfully on the need for a Reformed Baptist church in the Surrey area, founded a Tuesday night Bible Study, taught by pastoral intern Michael Kirkpatrick, to build desire for a church plant in that region.

Planting a new church is a huge undertaking but one, we pray, will materialize under God’s blessing of the means employed to this end.

To reach those hungering for the Lord in the Surrey area we thought it best to use the tools of our age – social media.  With God’s indispensable blessing and our concerted effort, social media is an effective means to promote awareness of the new Surrey Bible Study and our ongoing work for the Lord in Chilliwack.

A Faithless King and a Faithful Prophet

In 1 Kings 22:1-28, Ahab plans to go to battle with the Syrians in order to re-capture Ramoth Gilead. He invites Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, to accompany him in an alliance of the northern and southern kingdoms of Israel. Jehoshaphat requests divine guidance prior to the battle (v.5) and 400 false prophets testify that Israel would be victorious over Syria.

The Covenant of Redemption

The covenant of redemption is pretemporal, intratrinitarian, and foundational with reference to God’s dealings with his elect. It is referred to in the 2nd London Confession of Faith 1677/1689 (2LCF) 7:3 as “that eternal covenant transaction that was between the Father and the Son about the redemption of the elect” and 2LCF 8:1 further explains “It pleased God, in his eternal purpose, to choose and ordain the Lord Jesus, his only begotten Son, according to the covenant made between both, to be the mediator between God and man.” Click to read more about ” The Covenant of Redemption”

Jesus Is God

The Bible clearly teaches what orthodox Christians have believed for centuries, namely, that Jesus Christ is Almighty God.

There are explicit assertions that Christ is God in John 1:1-4, 20:28, Rom. 9:5, Tit. 2:13, Heb. 1:8, and 2 Pet. 1:1.

There are applications of divine names to the Lord Jesus in Isaiah 9:6, 40:3, and 1 Tim. 3:16.  Click to read more about “Jesus Is God”
