Favorite Bible Verse:

About:
Regarding salvation, if you'd like to discuss it, I'd be glad to talk to you and help you with study materials and church recommendations.

I would recommend these books in particular:

What is the Gospel?, Greg Gilbert
The Explicit Gospel, Matt Chandler
Core Christianity, Michael Horton
The God Who Is There, DA Carson
Christian Beliefs, Wayne Grudem

I recommend these books for believers who are not experiencing joy in their salvation, or are failing a lot in the area of sin and temptation (backslidden):

Union With Christ, Rankin Wilbourne
Who Do You Think You Are: Finding Your True Identity in Jesus, Mark Driscoll
Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ, Russell Moore

All of these books are written by sound-thinking, no-nonsense evangelical authors, and cover key concepts that will help you a lot, such as our identity in Christ and our spiritual union with Him. These are all essential concepts that I've been benefitting from being more aware of lately.

I attend an Evangelical Free Church of America congregation.

If you are in the USA and seeking a church, I would recommend Evangelical Free Church of America (www.efca.org) or Christian and Missionary Alliance (www.cmalliance.org) churches. There's also an association called 9marks that has high standards (http://www.9marks.com). Acts 29 also has some good churches http://www.acts29.com. All four have church finders on their site that would help you to find a sound, local fellowshp nearby.

Additionally there are many good Baptist churches, and other local churches that may be fantastic but it's harder to comment on those since I can't assess every individual church obviously.

In other countries, I suggest looking for a church that is associated with evangelical doctrine. There are other evangelical church associations in other countries. If you need help finding an association, I can likely find one for you.

Here is one in the UK:

https://fiec.org.uk/


Evangelicals affirm the standard doctrines of evangelical Christianity which include:

1) the full deity of Jesus Christ
2) monotheism (there is only one God)
3) the doctrine of the Trinity or Triune nature of God
4) justification by faith alone
5) authority and inspiration of Scripture alone
6) substitutionary atonement of Jesus Christ on the cross
7) original sin
8) virgin birth
9) bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ
10) eternal reward of the righteous and eternal
punishment of the wicked at Christ's return

I suggest that you avoid any organization or individual that teaches against any of these points. Cultic or sub-Christian groups deny one or more of the above points.

My favorite Bible teachers include RC Sproul, David Platt, Michael Horton, John MacArthur, DA Carson, Alistair Begg, Voddie Baucham, Tim Keller, James White, Wayne Grudem and Matt Chandler. All of these individuals have either YouTube videos, SermonAudio sermons, or books that you can benefit from.

My favorite Christian music groups include Vertical Church Band, Rend Collective, Jason Waller, Citizens & Saints, Norton Hall Band and Dustin Kensrue. These groups generally have upbeat music and Scriptural lyrics.

Good video on Black Hebrew Israelites

by RestingInJesus on December 27th, 2016 at 05:14 PM
Keith Thompson has produced a good video refuting the false teachings of Black Hebrew Israelites.

If you aren't aware of these groups, the basic teaching is that black, native American, and Asian people are descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, and that they will be restored to a leadership role in the Millennial reign of Jesus Christ.

Some of them are now being "enlightened" and are preaching on the streets of larger cities in the USA.
