“We live in a day of abounding vagueness and indistinctness on doctrinal subjects in religion. Now, if ever, it is the duty of all advocates of clear, well-defined, sharply-cut theology, to supply proof that their views are thoroughly borne out by Scripture…”

“I hold that the Gospel of St. John, rightly interpreted, is the best and simplest answer to those who profess to admire a vague and indistinct Christianity.”

These words were penned by Bishop J.C. Ryle over 150 years ago. If this was a cause for concern back in his day, how much more is it in ours?

Join us for worship this Sunday as we rediscover that distinctive doctrine which is lacking in so much of today’s preaching by simply allowing the words of John’s Gospel to stand as they are written. Here is the tentative schedule and past recordings:
