Video: "Gifts of the Ascended Lord" by Alistair Begg

    In Ephesians 4, Paul expressed the diversity of the body of Christ listing different gifts that God has given to His followers. In this message, Alistair Begg defines the gifts of apostles, prophets, and evangelists explaining the role of these individuals in laying the foundation of the Church. Each of the gifts Paul mentioned in these verses is involved with teaching the Word of God, and it is vital to understand that neither individuals nor churches can expect to grow in spiritual maturity apart from regularly hearing the expositional preaching and teaching of God's Word.

    Easter 2017 Video: "It Is I Myself" By Alistair Begg

    If Jesus walked among us today, would we recognize Him? Luke 24 tells of two of Christ’s followers who did not know Him when He appeared to them after His resurrection. Jesus confronted their doubt and sadness the same way He addresses ours today– with His Word. Exhibiting the evidence of the empty tomb, Alistair Begg explains that if we are going to understand Jesus, we must do so in light of Scripture. Christ conquered death on our behalf, and when we place our faith in Him, we have hope even in the face of our own mortality.

    Video: "Make Me Understand It!" by Alistair Begg

    Psalm 22 describes suffering that King David experienced at the hands of his enemies and the anguish that he felt when it seemed that God was far away. Alistair Begg considers the Psalm in light of its ultimate fulfillment in the Lord Jesus, who was rejected by men and bore the wrath of God in the place of sinners. It is only by trusting in the substitutionary death of Christ that sinners can enjoy a restored relationship with God, to the praise of His glory.

    Video: "I Will Build My Church" By Alistair Begg

    Does the Church still matter, or is it an institution that is doomed to become obsolete? Alistair Begg explains that when the Lord Jesus said, "I will build my Church," His words were grounded in the eternal and unchanging purposes of God, and they stand firm. All of the Bible points forward to the work of Christ, who is gathering together a people of His own through the preaching of the Gospel. Christ has conquered, and in His triumph we are assured that His Church will certainly be victorious.

    Video: "To Each One of Us" By Alistair Begg

    In His triumphant ascension, Christ demonstrated His victory over all powers of evil. Though His reign has yet to be realized on earth, when He ascended, Christ gave each of His followers unique and purposeful gifts enabling us to serve God. While these gifts are not equal in size or significance, they are a result of God’s grace and should not be a cause for pride or comparison. Alistair Begg points out that all Christians are called to serve because Christ has equipped us to do so, and we have no excuse for failing to use the gifts He has given.

    Video: "Over, Through and In All" by Alistair Begg

    God’s purpose for His creation has one chief aim: to bring Him glory.

In the framework of God’s supreme care, Christ provides access to the Father, and the Spirit abides with the believer. Alistair Begg helps us to understand the transcendent providence, power, and presence of our Almighty God.

    Video: "One God and Father of All" by Alistair Begg

    Christian unity is not based on shared experiences, but on the profound truth that God has redeemed a people for His own. Alistair Begg explains that only those who have been redeemed by Christ and belong to God as adopted sons and daughters know God as "Father." Through the Lord Jesus, our infinite God has made himself known to save sinful men and women, and it is the Christian's greatest privilege to say, "I am a child of God."

    Video: "One Baptism" By Alistair Begg

    Although specific baptism practices differ among churches, Paul cited “one baptism” in Ephesians 4 as part of the foundation of Christian unity. Cross referencing this passage with Romans 6, Alistair Begg focuses on the spiritual nature of baptism that applies for all believers at conversion. Our union with Christ in His death and resurrection gives us a new identity—an identity based on Christ’s finished work, not on our feelings. A firm grasp of these truths will enable us to maintain the unity of the Spirit with all who are in Him.
