Video: "Saying 'No' to the Old Life" by Alistair Begg

God’s plan for the Church is that His people would grow to resemble the Lord Jesus, and He has given gifts to the Church to move us toward unity and maturity. Alistair Begg explains that every believer in Christ has undergone a radical transformation from death to life. As the culture in which we live is increasingly marked by foolishness and godlessness, the Church should demonstrate behavior that attests to the faith we profess.

Video: "Time To Grow Up" By: Alistair Begg

How important is it for believers to be involved in a local church? Teaching from Ephesians 4, Alistair Begg shows that it is the only way to grow to Christian maturity. We develop a stable understanding of doctrine and grow in Christlikeness as we hear God speak through faithful preaching. The unique, supernatural nature of our fellowship shines forth when everyone joins in for effective Gospel ministry.

O Jesus, I Have Promised
By: John E. Bode

O Jesus, I have promised
To serve Thee to the end;

Nor wander from the pathway
If Thou wilt be my guide.

Video: "Pastors and Teachers" by Alistair Begg

If the Bible is the rudder that guides us through the sea of life, whose hand helps to steer it, especially with regard to the local church? Ephesians 4:12-13 addresses the role of the pastor-teacher as given by Christ for the equipping of the saints. Alistair Begg discusses the ministry and the works of service that flow from it, as well as the unity maintained and attained among believers. When our lives are brought under the teaching of the Word, we can effectively do the work God has set before us, individually and as a church.

Do Not Exasperate Your Children

As Christian parents, we don't set out to intentionally create friction with our children. Yet, in the heat of the moment, words can inflict all kinds of damage. The Apostle Paul warns of this in the book of Ephesians, but also gives parents, and fathers in particular, God-inspired counsel on how to care for, teach, discipline, and love their children.

Download Audio Series (Free) - Parental Priorities - God's Design for the Family

Wouldn’t it be great if children came with an instruction guide? Alistair Begg teaches us that, in fact, they do! The Bible is the ultimate source for instruction and contains everything we need to know about raising children. Navigating the challenges of parenting is particularly difficult in today’s culture, which is confused about the role of mothers and fathers and the unique benefits they each bring to the family unit. Wise parenting begins with the realization that we are all born in sin; when this doctrine is properly understood, it will have practical implications on how we discipline and train our children. Mothers should embrace their irreplaceable role, and fathers are to lead their families under the framework of Biblical truth. Believing parents can be encouraged by God’s promise: “Train them up in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it.”

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.
