Our passion at Olive Tree Christian Resources is to mentor pastors and other godly men to join us in proclaiming and protecting the life-changing truths God has revealed to us in His Word, the Bible. Our prayer is that many will embrace the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ in all its purity and power and, with the help of in-depth Bible exposition, grow in their faith and love for Him.
". . . we exist to equip the saints through expository preaching, teaching . . ."
Saints cannot be equipped for godly living and service apart from precise theology (Ephesians 4:11-16). This is the goal of expository preaching and teaching. The term "exposit" literally means to expound or explain in a detailed manner. Expository preaching is therefore a doctrinal proclamation of the Word of God derived from an exegetical process that is concerned only with the revelation of God, not the wisdom of man, and therefore carefully conveys the God-intended meaning of a text, passionately applying that meaning to the contemporary issues of life with an internal zeal and authority that cannot be extinguished.
Although this kind of preaching and teaching is rare in contemporary evangelicalism, since this was the method exemplified in the Bible (Neh. 8:8; Acts 7:2-53; 8:27-35; 20:26-27; Luke 4:16-22; 24:27, 32, 44-47), and since we have a divine mandate to "preach the Word" (2 Timothy 4:2), we believe that this is the God ordained method and we remain committed to it.
Current Study: An Exposition of the Letter to the Hebrews
There is no greater issue in the world for man to consider than the deity of Jesus Christ. Is He who He claimed to be? Is He God very God? If not, Christianity is a farce. If so, He is man’s only hope of salvation and eternal life. We invite you to join us on this wonderful spiritual journey that will certainly prove to be both encouraging and instructive as Pastor Harrell unearths the profound riches of the letter to the Hebrews. Here we will see the irrefutable evidence given to us from God Himself that indeed, Jesus is God who became the Son of God at the incarnation. Here our hearts will be thrilled with the theme of this amazing epistle that exalts the supremacy of Christ over all things.
