- every believer—to gain insights to help orphans in numerous ways.

Declaring Scripture with Responsibility, Passion, and Authenticity
What is a preacher?
What is preaching?
Pastor Tony Merida asks these foundational questions to arrive at this overview of his book, Faithful Preaching:
“Faithful preaching is the responsible, passionate, and authentic declaration of the Christ-exalting Scriptures, by the power of the Spirit, for the glory of the Triune God. Expository preaching is the best approach for accurately explaining and applying God’s Word, and for maintaining a God-centered focus in preaching. It also offers wonderful spiritual benefits to both the preacher and congregation. To be faithful expositors today, we must avoid the common problems associated with expository preaching such as boredom, irrelevancy, and Christless messages. Faithful preachers will usher the people through the text passionately and authentically, pointing them to Christ.”
