Equipping the Saints
Every Christian deserves to know that this promise is for him. The doctrines of TULIP are the only logical, Biblical explanation of how lost sinners become eternally secure saints.
These devotions are not meant to be read at one sitting, which will explain the many redundancies you will find.
Here are some of the web sites, blogs and other resources that we like. Please feel free to suggest others.
We want to help equip the saints with the sound doctrines of our Christian faith. We have grants available for seminary students, pastors and congregations committed to the essentials tenets of God's grace.
