Who we are, and why this site exists

We believe that in the days we are living in there is a need for a strong, evangelical witness. There are great challenges and opportunities, and facing those well is a vital task.

Where to start

We would recommend the book Marriage, Scripture and the Church: Theological Discernment on the Questions of Same-Sex. It is a comprehensive treatment of the debate around same-sex marriage and shows careful listening to a wide range of arguments covering all sides of the debate. You can read a full review here.

  • Unashamed of the Good News?

    Evangelicals are those who are primarily defined by their association with the ‘Good News’ (Eu-angellion). The New Testament announcement of Good News can find scriptural precedent in, for instance, the words of Isaiah 52:7f where the message is essentially coupled to the act of proclamation.

  • An Examination of renewal in Particular Baptist life during the period 1760-1815:

    and reflection on their significance for renewal in contemporary Baptist experience.  Whilst the renewal of the Particular Baptists was indeed the ‘result of a complex matrix of factors’, this essay attempts to identify some of the more significant influences on renewal.¹  Reflection and suggested application to contemporary Baptist experience is provided prior to the conclusion.… Read…
