Rev. Richard D. Phillips explores the early chapters of the Gospel of John to discover principles you can use for Christian outreach that were modeled by witnesses for Jesus and by Jesus Himself. Phillips examines the ministry of John the Baptist and the calling of the first of Jesus’ disciples. This book also includes an appendix that looks at the relationship between God’s sovereignty and evangelism.
“Phillips’ study of John 1, 3, and 4 takes us beyond clever techniques to biblical faithfulness, and beyond entertaining communication to sound theology in evangelism. He does a masterful job of helping us learn from God’s Word principles for evangelism, the theology of the gospel, and Jesus’ own practice in evangelism.”
—Rev. Thabiti Anyabwile
“Evangelism is not an afterthought in the Christian life. It is how God has ordained to glorify Himself in the salvation of sinners. Rev. Phillips explains this by showing how Jesus is both the evangel and the Great Evangelist. In the process, he challenges both apathy and superficiality in the great work of making disciples. I highly recommend this book!”
—Dr. Thomas K. Ascol
In 2013 we had our seventh annual Reformed Baptist Family Camp at Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in Palestine, TX. It was a wonderful time of preaching, encouragement, fellowship, and fun. Our speaker for 2013 was Dr. Fred Malone of First Baptist Church, Clinton, Louisiana who preached on the topic of “The Family.”
Our speaker for this year is Pastor Ron Baines, Grace Reformed Baptist Church, Topsham, Maine. Pastor Baines’ theme will be “Lessons from the Historical Books of the Old Testament.”
