The Word Unleashed
The Word Unleashed is committed to the expositional preaching of God’s objective, inerrant, and all-sufficient Word.
We believe expository preaching is the biblical pattern of preaching which consists of reading the text, explaining the text, and applying the text of Scripture.
It’s our prayer that the transforming power of God’s Word will be unleashed in your life.

The primary task of the Church and of the Christian minister is the preaching of the Word of God.
God is Creator (Gen. 1:1) and Owner of all things (Ps. 24:1).
All humanity has rebelled and sinned against God (Isa. 53:6; Rom. 3:10–18).
Yet, before the foundation of the world God determined (Eph. 1:4) to provide a way for sinners to reconciled (2 Cor. 5:21) to Him.
For this reason God sent forth His only begotten Son—Jesus Christ—into this world (John 3:16) to save sinners (1 Tim. 1:15).
If you repent from your sins and call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ you will be saved and given eternal life (Acts 2:38; Rom. 10:9–13).
