Our dear listeners, we just received the statistics for our first month of ministry here at Sermon Audio and we were amazed at what we saw. The first ten sermons have been listened to more than 300 times in 26 US states (with California coming in as number 1; no surpise there!) and 20 countries around the world. Outside the US, the Philippines came out on top with Canada coming in second. Even more surprising there are many of you from the Middle East and Europe and even in such far flung areas as Cayman Islands.
When we started this ministry, we didn't know how it will be received. Now we know-- and how we praise God for allowing us to reach out to you in all corners of the globe. With 10 million Filipinos scattered all over the planet, our desire is minister to you through the faithful preaching of God's Word.
So our dear listeners, we welcome all of you to the TBC pulpit. Our prayer is that wherever you maybe, God's grace will reach you.
Soli Deo gloria!
PS We will upload new sermons every month-- watch out for them!

I am writing this as typhoon Glenda rages all around us here in Los Banos. We have no power since about two in the morning when the wind and rain started to intensify. Earlier forecasts predicted that wind speed will exceed 120 kph and by the...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
All my Christian life of more than 30 years have been spent in a Baptist church. A great majority of this was under the Baptist and Reformed heritage. I am thankful to God for the many blessings received through His church all this time. Still, I...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
First impressions last— true or false? I am reading a very interesting book entitled “Blink”. One of its startling revelations is that we can learn a lot by “thin slicing”. It is contended that we don’t have to...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
Sports have always been with me. My favorites are football (soccer) and tennis but I can also play basketball, table tennis, badminton, etc. Don’t get me wrong—I am no super athlete and I can barely play many of the aforementioned...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12) The year 2013 is almost over. I consider this time of the year a special one. For one thing it reminds us of the passing of time. Indeed time flies (especially if like...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
“When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments” (2 Timothy 4:13) The most precious gift my parents ever gave me? That’s easy—it is the love of reading. My...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
“Who then will offer willingly, consecrating himself today to the LORD?" (1 Chronicles 29:5b) The signs are all around us. Our membership has doubled in the last few years to almost 50 (yes, TBC are not a mega-church, not by a long shot!)....[ abbreviated | read entire ]
