Is Baptism Essential To Salvation?

I am thinking especially of two or three things in connection with this topic. First, is baptism essential to salvation? A great many people think it is, but I want to let the Word of God answer that question. And then if we find that it is not essential to salvation, another question arises: Why then baptize at all? In the next place, I am thinking of a slightly different question: Has water baptism any place at all in this present dispensation of the grace of God or has it been done away with altogether? If not, just what place … Read More >

The Great Atonement

“And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.” —Leviticus 16:21–22 There are two great facts standing over against each other right from the very beginning of … Read More >

Where Christ Is All In All

“Wherein…Christ is all in all.”—Colossians 3:11 Christianity is not a cold, dead or not a theory about Christ; it is not a series of ethical statements proceeding from Christ; it is not a system, builded upon the concepts of Christ—Christianity is Christ. Christianity is not a cold, dead organization; it is a living organism, and it could not survive the loss of Christ, its living, vital Head any more than a human body, a living organism, could survive the loss of its head. Herein lies the chief distinction between Christianity and all world religions. Buddhism survive the loss of Buddha; … Read More >

"Peace On Earth"…Really?

As the youngest child in our family, it was customary for me to read the Christmas story in our home before we opened our gifts. As you might guess, I probably had my mind on the presents under the tree rather than on the words I was reading. Even so, I often was puzzled by the promise of the angel, “Peace on Earth.” Even back then I knew that there was little peace in the world. I’m sure you know the story. The shepherds are tending their flocks on the outskirts of Bethlehem at night. They are startled when suddenly … Read More >

Shepherd Life In Palestine

Message given by Rev. C.W. Slemming, from Bible Testimony Fellowship, London, England. PART I (Taken from The Moody Church News, Volume 35, Number 2) Let us journey with a shepherd of Bethlehem and his flock and see what we can glean from their experiences that will help us to understand the Bible as well as comprehend a little more of the Great Shepherd of the sheep. We will divide our thoughts into three main divisions to help us harness the many experiences and the numerous references. They will be Sunrise, Noonday, Eventide. SUNRISE With the rising of the sun … Read More >

The Miracle Working Christ

I want to read a few verses from the second chapter of John’s Gospel: “And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: “And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. “And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. “Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. “And there were set there six waterpots of stone, … Read More >

Triumph Of The Cross

“He shall see of the travail of his soul and shall be satisfied.”—Isaiah 53:11 That is one of the most remarkable sentences in the whole Word of God. Gathered up in one word, we have the story of the years of toil and weariness, “the travail of his soul.” That soul that was bowed down beneath the tremendous burden of a world of sin, and that soul that was bowed in death to bring to the world life and light and hope and peace. And yet we cannot read those words of the Old Testament prophet without hearing in … Read More >

Our Commitment

Sermon preached by Dr. H. Wilbert Norton on December 6, 1964. Our prayer has been, “speak to my heart today.” One hundred years ago a young man heard God speak to his heart, and The Moody Church became a reality. He became a witness to Jesus Christ throughout Chicago, the Midwest, the United States, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. In commemorating the response of this young to the voice of God speaking to his own heart and life, this church has accepted a statement reaffirming its faith in the One Who was the heart of the message … Read More >

The Last Act

“To this end was the Son of God manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” —1 John 3:8 It is absolutely necessary for Jesus Himself to return to this earth, in order to finish the task that He set out to do, as stated in this text. Here on the earth, is where God has been blasphemed, here is where men have sinned, here is where the devil has had his run as the god of this world, here is where he is prince of the power of the air, and “goeth about as a roaring lion, … Read More >

Return Of The King

Imagine you are having a regular day at home or at the office, and then without warning, you are in the presence of Christ with a new body and in an entirely different realm of existence. Incredibly, Jesus is beside you, friends who have died are there, and you find yourself mingling with an innumerable host of people, all suspended in midair. You are reunited with your mother, father and friends long since forgotten on Earth. But the focus is on your leader and Savior, King Jesus, who has returned as He promised: “And if I go and prepare a … Read More >
