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.

Foundations of a Biblical World View – Creation

The foundation of a right view of the world is acknowledgement of our obligation to the Creator God who made us all.

Foundations of a Biblical World View – Fall

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.

Foundations of a Biblical World View – Redemption

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.

Northwest Regional FBF Conference

March 20, 2011

Our annual conference last week was at Lincoln Park Baptist Church in Wenatchee, WA.

Our keynote speaker was Dr. Fred Moritz, my good friend and former mission director. He is now ‘emeritus’ with the mission and on the faculty of Maranatha Baptist Seminary.

We had a great week … all in just three days! Lots of preaching and good fellowship. This post is to provide a convenient link to the sermons. Clicking the link will take you to a filtered view of ‘Our Sermons’ with just the FBF sermons in view.

The Northwest Regional FBF Conference

The Northwest Regional FBF Conference

I’d like to commend to you the messages from our recent meeting in Monroe, WA. Our theme was “That your love may abound” (Phil 1.9). One of our speakers did an excellent job of exposing our theme passage to us. Unfortunately, the recording of his message suffered a glitch and the first bit of it is missing.

If you have time for only a few of these, be sure to listen to Dr. Bob’s messages on Meekness and Dr. Vaughn’s message on Keep Yourselves in the Love of God.

The first two messages are ‘bonus’ messages from Dr. Bob for the 10th Anniversary Sunday of Monroe Baptist Church which preceded our meeting.
