At Conquering King Fellowship we are devoted to expository preaching. Expository preaching is a departure from what is typical in today’s Christian pulpit. Rather than focusing on personal stories or pragmatic principles, expository preaching starts with the word of God. We pay particular attention to understanding the Scriptures in their original setting and context, going verse-by-verse through the chosen text then drawing out the applications to our contemporary context.
If you are not acquainted with expository preaching it may take some getting used to. We encourage you to endure the learning curve as there is nothing more rewarding than truly understanding the Bible and seeing the powerful impact God’s unchanging word has on the life of His people. Not only are all believers blessed by hearing the word of God, but we are in dire need of it for our discernment. Through being immersed in the Scriptures, our hearts and minds are prepared to obey and equipped to discern. The author of Hebrews stresses this need:
About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil. (Hebrews 5:11-14)
In an effort to learn and hear the whole counsel of God’s word we proceed verse-by-verse through the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Epistles in respective weeks. Additionally, we read selections from the Psalms and Proverbs each week to learn from the inspired songbook and wisdom of ancient Israel. We encourage you to join us in seeing the power of God’s word unleashed in the lives of His people through the practice of expository preaching.
