This account of God’s work in this historic church is told by the pastor, Andrew Davis. Andy and I studied together in doctoral church history courses at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary back in the day. I recall the first time I met Andy. We were seated next to each other in a seminar on Martin Luther led by Dr. Marvin Anderson. Few people do I respect as much as I do Andy. Seldom have I been around somebody with a great combination of a scholarly mind with a deep devotion to the Lord. I love his views on the church and the role of the pastor. You would do well to regularly listen to his sermons at the website of First Baptist Church.

Throughout the month of November, Christian Audio is providing a free audio book (no strings attached). I have downloaded my copy and have been mesmerized as I listen to the story of Brother Yun known as The Heavenly Man. Brother Yun is a leader in the Chinese house church movement. He has been imprisoned and tortured by Chinese authorities. But more importantly he has been used mightily by God. You will be brought to your knees in prayer as you listen to the account of this man encountering Jesus in his life and ministry.
Prayer means that we have turned away from relying on our own techniques and are simply trusting in God’s power.
