Original Post Date: March 25, 2015 Why I Love The Church, Part 1 In our last post, we looked at the fact that the church is a divinely-ordained institution. Today, I’d like to consider a second reason why I love the church: 2. The Church Is the Outworking of an Eternal Plan In Titus 1:2, the […]

Why I Love the Church, Part 1

John MacArthur | August 28, 2017

Original Post Date: March 24, 2015 I love the church. I am an inveterate and incurable lover of the church. It thrills me beyond expression to serve the church.

John MacArthur | March 22, 2017

10 Reasons I Love Being a Pastor

John MacArthur | April 20, 2016
