Are you interested in personal beliefs?
It is my belief that the Bible is truth without any mixture of error. I am comfortable using the words, Inerrant, Infallible, and Inspired, to describe my view of the scriptures. Concerning God, I believe He is the creator, and sustainer of life; Jesus is the only way of salvation, and the Holy Spirit empowers believers to live the Christian life. The Bible teaches Jesus is coming again, and we should be zealous in our efforts to win the lost.

I believe and affirm the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

If a person is called of God, in agreement with the Word of God, he should be careful to preach the Word of God. I believe the preacher should diligently seek to be an expositor of the scriptures. God has promised to bless His Word, not the cleverness or cuteness of the minister.

Therefore, most of my sermons are expository (or at least textual) in nature. A few of them will be textually topical, but in all of them It is my desire to exalt the Lord and His Word.
