"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Numerous articles, sermons, and magazine issues are also easily found on our website, each designed to help reveal the "mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints ... which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

The Church Jesus Built

". . . I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in . . . the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth" (1 Timothy 3:15). In this booklet we examine the fruits Jesus and His apostles said would identify His Church. We look at the contrasting fruits that identify those who are influenced by a different spirit and preach a different gospel. We will learn, not from human tradition or opinion but directly from God's Word, how we can distinguish "the church of the living God" (1 Timothy 3:15) from those who follow "false prophets" in sheep's clothing.
