Why expository preaching?
Our commitment to the exposition of Scripture is rooted in the apostle Paul’s mandate to “preach the Word” (2 Tim 4:1-4). We believe that expository preaching is essential in accomplishing this goal (Ezra 7:10).
In exposition, the preacher studies the historical and grammatical context of a passage so that he can rightly interpret the author’s intended meaning to the original recipients. He then communicates its teaching in a clear and engaging way to a contemporary audience so that people will understand and apply the Word to their lives and grow in Christ-likeness.
We believe that when the Word of God is accurately interpreted (2 Tim 2:15) and faithfully proclaimed (Col 1:25), the Holy Spirit will use it to transform lives and equip believers to serve to God’s glory (1 Cor 2:1-5).
