The whole modern world has divided itself into #Conservatives and #Progressives. The business of #Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the #Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected.  --G. K. Chesterton

fully displaying God's glory in making disciplemaking disciples worldwide
Introduction

I am first of all a Bible-Believing Christian, a Gospel-Driven Protestant, Historic Evangelical, and a Christ-Centered Baptist. I am married to Ann and have been given the stewardship of raising 2 wonderful boys - Jonathan and Andrew.

My purpose is to be multiplying the display of God's Glory in all of life by treasuring the supreamacy of Jesus Christ in all things for the joy of all peoples.  For this prupose my desire is for you to enjoy the vast, ocean-deep pleasures of God more than the mud-puddle pleasures of wealth, power or lust. Psalms 16:11 says, “You show me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy, in Your right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Since God is the source of our greatest delight, then God is our most precious treasure; which makes believers in the Lord Jesus Christ radically God-centered and not self-centered. And if we treasure Christ most, we glorify Him most. Because of this, I am driven to sharing the joyful message of God’s incredible Gospel as revealed through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. My hope for each and every one of us is that we might know Christ personally and be constantly growing and maturing as His followers. Please go to www.disciplemaking.net and find out how you too can pursue your greatest satisfaction in God, because God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.

My Core Values:

  1. God-centered:  I value putting God at the center of all that I do. I put His glory, supremacy, and His honor first, asking in every decision, ““Will this bring the greatest glory and praise to our God?”  In this sense, the pursuit of joy in God is not wrong; indeed, it is God’s command.  This is why “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.”  
  2. Bible-saturated: I  value being saturated with the inerrant and infallible Scriptures, which are God’s reliable, authoritative, and sufficient revelation. We value a growing love for the Word, as well as a deepening understanding of it, in each person within the church, whether old or young.  We value Biblical theology as a commitment to know the God of the Bible as He has revealed Himself in Scripture. 
  3. Expository-reviving: I value “expository exultation,” as the Spirit-anointed preacher delights in bringing forth from Scripture the teaching that God has revealed for our good and His glory.  This is preaching which expounds what Scripture says in a particular passage, carefully explaining its meaning and applying it to the congregation.  
  4. Christ-exalting: The essence of worship is valuing Christ more than all the world has to offer. Thus, I value corporate worship that honors Him and helps us to cherish Him more and more highly through touching both the mind and the heart. Singing, praying, reading the Word, and preaching are all vital parts of such worship.  Worshiping Christ is the fuel and goal of all missions and ministry. 
  5. Prayer-powered: I value prayer as our amazing privilege of speaking with the King of the Universe, expressing and developing our intimate family relationship with Him. We value prayer as the source of power and the visible engine for all our efforts. 
  6. Gospel-Driven: The gospel is the heart of Christianity and what drives my ministry.  But the good news is not that God wants to meet people's felt needs or help them develop a healthier self-image.  We have sinfully rebelled against our Creator and Judge.  Yet He has graciously sent His Son to die the death we deserved for our sin, and He has credited Christ's acquittal to those who repent of their sins and believe in Jesus' death, resurrection and ascension. That is the good news.  Gospel driven churches should not be driven by pragmatism, but a commitment to grow in a Biblical understanding of the gospel, conversion, and evangelism.  The whole truth is that our deepest need is spiritual life, and that is why We present the gospel openly (calling for repentance and faith), while leaving the converting and results to God (Rom. 1:16). 
  7. Community-loving: I value the diversity that God created among mankind; even more, we value the unity in diversity that God creates in His church – a unity that manifests itself not only in smiles on Sunday mornings, but in an authentic community showing love, fellowship, accountability, care, and concern throughout the week as we share our lives with each other.
  8. Missions-mobilizing: I value aggressive intentionality in missions and evangelism, the privilege God has given all of us of being His ambassadors, accomplishing His goal of spreading the knowledge of His glory to all the nations. We value spreading a passion for His supremacy to all peoples (Malachi 1:1): those within our culture and those without, those who live nearby and those who live on other continents.  The greatest benefit to mankind can be accomplished through the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the establishment of new churches that preach the Word of God and minister according to its commands, precepts, and wisdom.  (Matthew 9:36-38).  We want to be involved in a church that multiplies by planting other churches locally, nationally, and internationally. 
  9. Family-strengthening: I value building up strong marriages and families, where God’s Word is taught and lived out, where husbands love their wives as Christ loved the church, where wives respect their husbands, where the hearts of the parents are turned toward their children, and the hearts of the children toward their parents. 
  10. Disciple-multiplying: I value growth in Christ-likeness and holiness in every believer, as all of us become the disciples. Recovering true disciplemaking that lead to multiplication for today (i.e. disciplemaking-disciples) would build the church and promote a clearer witness to the world.  The only way we can obey the Great Commission is by involving all the people who name Jesus Christ as their Lord in Spiritual multiplication.  Disciplemaking multiplication is not in-grown but sees evangelism as the beginning and the end of the process.
  11. Joy-pursuing: The pursuit of joy in God is not wrong; indeed, it is God’s command. For God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him. “In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” Psalm 16:11.
