The Royal Priesthood (Ye Must Be Born Again – Part Four)

God’s people are described as both a “called out” people and “kings and priests” who shall reign on earth. We have the description of both the church and kingdom. The royal priesthood would be meaningless without the High Priest. Christ became our high priest to offer his own blood for our sins (Heb. 8:4). He…

The Kingdom and the Church (Ye Must Be Born Again – Part Three)

The terms “kingdom” and “church” identify the people of God in this dispensation.

Cornelius Needed Salvation

The Acts of the Apostles contains several accounts of salvation following the day of Pentecost in Acts 2. We believe these are recorded for our understanding that we might know how men and women in different walks of life can learn of the gospel and obey it for the remission of their sins. The record…

After Baptism What?

We have heard time after time that baptism is “for the remission of sins,” and so it is (Acts 2:38). Preachers nearly always end their sermons with an appeal to be baptized into Christ for the remission of their sins. I find no fault with that. However, most of the time the impression is conveyed…
