Month of Prayer and Giving Day 25 - Aiming at what is honourable

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 25 – Aiming at what is honourable

| March 25, 2017 | 0 Comments

When Paul wrote 2 Corinthians he made mention of his desire not to attract criticism in the administration of financial gifts from the churches. He said measures had been taken to handle finances wisely because of a desire to do what was honourable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man. It is for this reason – among others – that Grace Baptist Partnership seeks to honour the Lord in this area. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 24 – Real Life

| March 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

In June 2015, the first Real Life Week of Evangelism was held in Edlesborough. Through door to door evangelism and special evangelistic events the gospel was made known in four different villages. The work in Edlesborough – to say nothing of the benefit to the workers who came from throughout the country and beyond – was greatly strengthened. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 23 – What Bible version do Grace Baptist Partnership churches use?

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 23 - What Bible version do Grace Baptist Partnership churches use?

Let me begin by saying that Grace Baptist Partnership doesn’t have churches – not any. We are simply a means through which various autonomous local churches as well as other likeminded individuals partner together to – as our strapline says – grow leaders, plant churches and reach nations. We simply don’t ‘have’ churches. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 22 - Don’t waste your annual leave

I tend to take part of my holiday entitlement to travel outside my normal areas of ministry to assist friends in their ministry endeavours. So, in November 2015 I found myself preaching at Proclamation Institute Zambia in Garneton – near Kitwe – in Central Zambia. While there I also had the opportunity to meet up with my friend and GBP treasurer, Chola Mukanga. Foremost on my agenda was a desire to encourage him to pursue full-time ministry. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 21 - Where are the men?

I was speaking at the West Lancashire Reformed Baptist Fellowship at North Preston Evangelical Church six years ago tonight. I was telling them about a new training initiative we hoped to launch at Radcliffe Road Baptist Church in Bury. Given the dearth of men stepping forward for vocational ministry, someone asked – quite appropriately – if I thought there were men in the churches interested in such training. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 20 - We need to talk

When the number of Poles in the United Kingdom is greater than that of any foreign-born group, we need to talk. When fewer than half of 1% of Poland’s population are evangelical, we need to talk. When 100 cities of 25,000 or more in Poland have no evangelical witness, we need to talk. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 19 - A Sunday in the life of Ali McLachlan

The day begins like most others in the McLachlan household. There’s breakfast and a brief time of family worship. Then it’s time to go to worship at Grace Baptist Church, West Edinburgh. The church is growing in membership – seven new members were added last month – and the leadership is being strengthened as well. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 18 - Light in Dark Corners

If you’ve ever wondered about the propriety of making bold plans for the spread of the gospel; if you’ve ever questioned the wisdom of talking about church planting rather than simply evangelism; if you’ve ever wondered about whether or not it is right to seek to plant churches with those with whom you have theological or ecclesiological disagreements, Light in Dark Corners is for you.

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 16 - Fellow Workers for the Truth

John wrote three letters of the New Testament. Together they form something of a manual for missionary support. Some 17 times in these three brief letters he makes reference to truth. In the first letter the focus is on what the truth is. The second letter warns against supporting those who propagate error. The third letter encourages the support of those who proclaim the truth. It says in so doing we become fellow workers for the truth. Continue reading
