The Word Unleashed

The Word Unleashed is founded upon one principle: God has given you every spiritual resource you need to grow in Jesus Christ, and you find those resources in His all-sufficient Word. That’s why Tom embraces expository preaching — an approach that seeks to understand what the original authors of Scripture meant, rather than an approach that reads our own meaning into it.

If that's what you've been looking for, you've come to the right place.

It's our prayer that the transforming power of God’s Word be unleashed in your life.

The Gospel

God is the Holy Creator; every person owes Him worship and perfect obedience. Instead, we all have rebelled against Him. Our sin separates us from God, but He provided a way for us to be brought back into a right relationship with Him. God sent His one-of-a-kind Son, Jesus Christ, who lived the perfect life we should have lived and died the death that we deserved to die, taking the punishment we earned because of our sin. Repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and God will save you, reconciling you to Himself.
