Vince Lombardi, the Hall of Fame coach of the Green Bay Packers, was notorious for his emphasis on fundamentals. His teams won championships because they could block, tackle, and execute better than anyone else. Addressing his team after a poor performance, he held up a football and said, ‚Äú?Gentlemen, this is a football!?‚ÄĚ Like Lombardi, the apostle Paul knew well the importance of going back to the fundamentals when he wrote to Timothy, ‚ÄúThese things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.‚ÄĚ (1 Timothy 3:14‚Äď15)
Paul was saying, ‚ÄúBrothers and sisters, this is a church! This is what a church is, how it behaves and what it believes.‚ÄĚ Paul sensed the church was beginning to drift away from the basic truths of the Christian faith. We still need to be constantly reminded of the fundamental truths of our faith. We give thanks to faithful churches who partner with us and share feedback about the impact of SermonAudio worldwide. We hope their feedback encourages you as it does us.
But first, some other encouragements!
We just got approval to have our 60-second trailer for the FAME FILM shown in over 850+ theaters across America Feb 22 as part of the preview segment of the anniversary showing of ‚ÄúIs Genesis History?‚ÄĚ Be sure to mark that date in your calendar and show your support for SA, FAME Mission, and Is Genesis History!
Started back into this book for the new year. Like a breath of fresh air. Highly recommend. You won‚Äôt be sorry.
Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!
Paulo Freire, Hope Church www.sermonaudio.com/hopechurchsussex"We have only been on SermonAudio for less than a year but are amazed to see how many people have viewed the sermons from our church. We are just a small church but we connected SermonAudio with our own church website and it has been a blessing to us. It‚Äôs great to have all the sermon files archived on SermonAudio and yet linked with our website. It‚Äôs just wonderful and we have always appreciated what you do. It is encouraging to see God‚Äôs Word going out throughout the world. We give thanks to God for your ministry."
Dr. Gus Rodriguez, Assistant Pastor, Hunt Valley Baptist Ch www.sermonaudio.com/huntvalleybaptist"We have been familiar with SermonAudio for some time and as pastors we have used the site often to listen to pastors and sermons. Recently we decided to go in this direction and put our sermons on the site We are looking forward to using a lot of the features you offer on your site. We currently make CDs but know this way of distributing sermons to our people will be more cost effective and more accessible. Thanks for your great work."
William Einwechter, Immanuel Free Reformed Church www.sermonaudio.com/immanuelfrc"SermonAudio has been helpful to us in a lot of ways. It is a great resource for our people to listen to sermons. It has been a means of church growth throughout the years. We have had a good number of people come to us over the years who first learned about us through SermonAudio. We also consider SermonAudio as part of our missionary outreach both locally and overseas. We simply consider it as part of our missionary budget. We are very thankful for the high quality of everything you do. We value that you have a doctrinal standard to which broadcasters must subscribe. It‚Äôs encouraging to be part of site of solid, conservative churches that hold to the fundamentals of the faith. We have found this partnership to be both economical and a way to increase our exposure. What a great opportunity to partner with others who proclaim the truth. Even though we don‚Äôt know most of them, we share this unity in the declaration of truth!"
Bill Issa, Reconciliation Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/billissa"I have to confess that our church, Reconciliation Baptist Church, being on SermonAudio is an answered prayer from the Lord Himself. It is unbelievable how important your site is!We now receive emails from friends and other people we don't know from all over the world informing us that our sermons are a blessing to them. How could we have reached some of those countries without the help of SermonAudio! Finally, at RBC, we can't thank you enough. We have nothing to pay you guys back with; the only payment is that we'll always mention SermonAudio in our prayers. May the Lord Jesus Christ shine His gracious face on you. We love and respect you."
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
