Exalting God’s Glory. Explaining God’s Truth.
A Note From Tom
I am grateful you are visiting The Word Unleashed. Our ministry’s focus is exalting God’s glory by explaining His truth as revealed in the Scripture.
It is a joy to serve as Pastor-Teacher at Countryside Bible Church, where I have the wonderful opportunity to preach God’s Word on Sunday mornings and evenings and to worship alongside people who love Christ and His Word.
Consider partnering with us by subscribing to the ministry and praying for us. I look forward to our partnership, and it is my prayer that the power of God’s Word will be unleashed in your life.
June 23–24, 2023 at Countryside Bible Church in Southlake, TX.
Faithful Stewards is a conference and book series to encourage pastors and leaders of local churches as they pursue faithful, biblical ministry.
“For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord…”
–2 Corinthians 4:5

Spiritual maturity begins to develop once you implement the basic disciplines of the Christian life.
Christians must be aware of unbiblical philosophies that seek to undermine biblical thinking.
Christians must choose to think biblically in all matters, phases, and circumstances of life. We must cling to the Word of God and pray for the work of the Spirit to cultivate this mindset.
Worry is essentially the mental strangulation of the mind with whatever is the object of your worry. Does worry characterize your life as a believer?
In every circumstance that Christians find themselves in, we must rejoice because God is still on His throne.
In Romans 4 Paul uses a financial term to describe that amazing transaction that takes place in the important doctrine of justification. That term is “credit.” It is a legal decision of God as Judge in which He credits the believing sinner’s sins to Christ on the cross, and then He credits to the sinner the merits of Christ’s perfect life—His righteousness. This entire transaction is born out of God’s grace alone and it is of faith alone.
In Romans 4 Paul uses an Old Testament character, Abraham, to illustrate several qualities that are true regarding the great doctrine of justification. One of those qualities is that even though we as Christians have weaknesses, true saving faith focuses on God’s promises and on God’s power to keep us saved. This was true of Abraham and it is true of every Christian.
Hymns From Tom and Sheila Pennington
“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
Pastor Tom is preaching through 1 John on Sunday mornings and the book of Revelation on Sunday evenings.

What Pastors are Saying about Tom’s Books
“Tom Pennington puts his finger on a crucial question every preacher must ask himself: ‘Am I preaching my wisdom in an attempt to move people by my power for my success and honor, or am I preaching Christ from the Holy Scriptures while relying on the power of the Spirit to glorify God?’ We as preachers ought to read this book, examine ourselves openly before God, and seek much of the Spirit’s grace to live for the Triune God’s glory, for the maturation of the saints, and for the salvation of the lost.”
–Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
“In this concise and potent volume, Tom Pennington applies the skill of a seasoned pastor to guide the reader through a passage of Scripture that exposes the heart of New Covenant Gospel ministry. It is a refreshing and reorienting exposition of the faithful pastor’s proper preoccupation: preaching Christ and Him crucified. Read and be blessed.”
–Michael Riccardi, Assistant Professor of Theology, The Master’s Seminary
“Gresham Machen once said that the two great presuppositions of the gospel are the doctrine of God and the doctrine of man. In this short but helpful book, Tom Pennington presents us with that first presupposition—the doctrine of God.Skillfully and winsomely, Pennington unpacks the God who has revealed himself in history and his word. He is holy, but he is also good—which is great good news for sinners like ourselves. This sermon on God’s name will help you hear the gospel better.”
–Jonny Gibson, Associate Professor, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
In this wonderful book, Tom Pennington lifts our eyes to the Lord, to his great and glorious name, to his great and glorious character. Read, meditate, worship, and rejoice!
–Thomas S. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Professor of Biblical Theology, The Southern Baptist Seminary
Let the sun stop shining, and we will preach in darkness. Let the waves stop their ebb and flow, and still our voice shall preach the gospel. Let the world stop its revolutions, let the planets stay their motion; we will still preach the gospel.
