"Obedience is the key to real faith."
"The church does not draw people in; it sends them out."
"The church’s job is to equip the saints for works of service in the world."

"I don't think the job of the church is to make people happy. I think it's to make them holy."
"The Bible's power rests upon the fact that it is the reliable, errorless, and infallible Word of God."
"The greatest friend of truth is time, her greatest enemy is prejudice, and her constant companion humility."

"I’ll tell you one of the most wonderful things about being a Christian is that I don’t ever get up in the morning and wonder I’m not doing anything today or if what I do matters. I live everyday to the fullest because I can live it through Christ and I know no matter what I do today, and it may just be in my prayer time, I’m going to do something to advance the Kingdom of God. Now does that make you fulfilled? You bet it does! And it gives you joy about living."
"The Bible- banned, burned, beloved. More widely read, more frequently attacked than any other book in history. Generations of intellectuals have attempted to discredit it; dictators of every age have outlawed it and executed those who read it. Yet soldiers carry it into battle believing it is more powerful than their weapons. Fragments of it smuggled into solitary prison cells have transformed ruthless killers into gentle saints. Pieced together scraps of Scripture have converted whole whole villages of pagan Indians."
