Foundations of a Biblical World View
October 13, 2015
Our special guest for our Thanksgiving weekend was our friend Mark Ward. Mark recently moved to Mount Vernon, WA, to work at Logos Bible Software and serve in Cornerstone Baptist Church of Anacortes. Mark most lately lived in Greenville, SC, where he worked for BJUPress. He is the author of a new textbook, Biblical Worldview created for the 12th grade curriculum.
The messages this weekend were very condensed lessons from this material, filled with sound Biblical reasoning and profound concepts that apply to how we see and relate to our world. You can find the sermons in our audio section, but we want to make them easily accessible in one place so are placing links here.
The foundation of a right view of the world is acknowledgement of our obligation to the Creator God who made us all.
The second pillar of the Biblical world view is to see the problem of pain as a consequence of the fall, a truth known only through submitting to the teaching of the Bible.
The last pillar in a Biblical worldview is Redemption. God did not leave the world to fend for itself but made a way for a broken world to be reconciled to him and redeemed from its sins.

My Tribute to My Dad
A few years ago, my dad began writing his memoirs. His title was “Poor Boy off the Farm”. It reflects the reality of his life story and something of his insecurities as he battled honorably through life. He was far from ‘poor’ in my mind, though he began life in humble circumstances.

We uploaded an old message from Dr. Monroe Parker, former director of Baptist World Mission when he preached for us February 24, 1991. The audio quality is not great, but we thought some might be interested in the message.
