Justification by Faith
This article is a study of the doctrine of Justification by Faith – the central tenet of our Christian faith.

Chosen by Grace
This article is a study of the doctrine of Election – what is the basis in Scripture, and what are some of the arguments used against it. It is considered under four headings: 1. Does the Bible teach sovereign grace? 2. Why do we find it difficult to accept? 3. How may we understand this truth better? 4. What difference does it make?

Dealing with Doubt
This article looks at the reasons why people might doubt their faith, and gives answers based on the Lord Jesus’ answer to John the Baptist when John questioned if Jesus really was the One  whom John had believed Him to be. It is an explanation and application of Matthew, chapter 11, verses 2-6, and is very relevant in the strange days in which we are living today.
