Faith Bible Church is committed to expository, or expositional preaching. The organization, 9Marks, provides (below) a helpful description of this method of teaching, and describes why it is an essential component of the life of every healthy church. To see expository preaching in practice, you can watch some of our past sermons online in our sermon resources section.
What is it?
An expositional sermon takes the main point of a passage of Scripture, makes it the main point of the sermon, and applies it to life today.
Where is it in the Bible?
Why is it important?
Expositional preaching is important because God’s Word is what convicts, converts, builds up, and sanctifies God’s people (Heb. 4:12; 1 Pet. 1:23; 1 Thess. 2:13; Jn. 17:17). Preaching that makes the main point of the text the main point of the sermon makes God’s agenda rule the church, not the preacher’s.
