The Truth about a Dad's Influence
By Dr. Jack Graham | June 9, 2017
Families are in crisis. And the root of that crisis falls on parents…especially disconnected dads. Frankly, we are living in a culture in which fathers are often invisible – a so-called fatherless culture. Our families and our nation are paying the price as a result. Too often dads are lost, struggling in the role that God has called them to do.
Special Father's Day Message
By Jack Graham | June 1, 2017
Men, your children, your grandchildren, are looking to you to lead them. Make the right choice to first follow Christ and then to live for Him in the fear – in the love – of God. And then train up your children in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord.
I challenge you today to be the Dad who influences your children for Christ. Be the spiritual influence who will lead your son…your daughter…to seek after God with all their heart.
Charles Spurgeon is as Relevant Now as Ever.
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 30, 2017
Born 183 years ago today, the son and grandson of clergymen, Charles Spurgeon overcame major health problems, depression, fear, and an almost complete lack of formal education to become one of the greatest preachers in history.
Though he spent just 10 months in school, the young Spurgeon was a voracious reader of theology, natural history, and literature. And just a few months after his conversion to Christianity, he began preaching at 15 and became pastor of his first church a year later.
Spurgeon’s great gift as a preacher was obvious from the beginning, drawing crowds that filled his small church, the Baptist Chapel in Waterbeach. The congregation quickly grew, and people marveled that a man so young could preach with such maturity.
Soon, Spurgeon was invited to preach at New Park Street church, the largest Baptist church in London. He was offered a six-month trial. He stayed for 38 years.
Spurgeon’s style was dramatic. He stalked across the stage, acting out Bible verses, and describing the wonders of salvation and the devastating loss awaiting those who turned from God.
Word spread and Spurgeon preached throughout London and across England, his appearances filling the largest halls. Spurgeon once spoke before an audience of more than 23,000 people—without a microphone.
The crowds soon outgrew New Park Street, and in 1861, his congregation moved to the new Metropolitan Tabernacle. I am pictured here with his bust at that church. It seated 5,600 people, but so many people came to hear the Good News of the Gospel that Spurgeon occasionally asked church members to stay home so visitors might find a place to...
The Madness in Manchester

Today the United Kingdom is under a “critical” terrorist alert. The horror of Monday’s terrorist attack on a concert packed with children and young teens will never be forgotten.

I await with great anticipation this year’s prayer. Today, May 4, 2017, believers throughout the country - whether at home, at work, at a park, at church, or even while driving - will pray in unison at 7:30 p.m. (ET) that Almighty God would bless our nation.
How to stand for life in a culture of death
By Jack Graham | May 2, 2017
You and I live in a sin-sickened society that desperately needs God’s truth. And one of the biggest moral battles we need to fight is saving the lives of precious unborn babies.
The Bible teaches that life is precious from womb to tomb. Yet around 1.5 million babies are aborted every year in the United States. Abortion has been called our national holocaust. An innocent baby is murdered every 21 seconds in this country, after being subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment.
No wonder Proverbs 24:11 says, “Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.”
As Christians, you and I can’t stand by and do nothing about critical moral issues like abortion, when God’s Word calls us to action.
So here are four things you can do to protect unborn babies in this life-and-death battle:
- Get informed. Know what the Bible says about abortion. (One way to get informed on important issues like this is through my book, Culture Wise.)
- Teach your children about the sacredness of life and sexuality so they embrace morality and purity.
- Work and pray for a constitutional amendment that will prohibit abortion. It’s never too late. Let’s keep praying!
- Help provide alternatives like Christian pregnancy centers, so vulnerable mothers in crisis receive the encouragement they need to keep their babies or choose the loving option of adoption over abortion.
Most importantly, let’s continue “speaking the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15). That’s the kind of voice God’s Spirit can use to rescue these innocent children, as you and I boldly and lovingly stand for life in a culture of death.
We want to equip...

Your support brings God’s Word to people thirsty for truth
By PowerPoint Ministries | May 1, 2017
Your gifts help bring God’s Word to people all over the world, like Shelly, through PowerPoint. She says:
“Your preaching has given me a better understanding of God’s Word. I love the study of Scriptures and doing my best to rightly divine the Word of God. I take a lot of notes. Thanks!”
And Geronimo in Texas writes to say:
“I am blessed every time I listen to PowerPoint with Pastor Graham. God has given him a special anointing that is powerful. I am still learning the Word and, most importantly, applying that knowledge. Thank you for being such a blessing to me and my wife!”
Thank you for your support so more people like these can hear God’s truth!
From Pastor’s Desk
By Dr. Jack Graham | May 1, 2017
Imagine you were there when Jesus looked into the eyes of His followers and spoke words like these to help them turn our fallen world upside down:
“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored?” (Matthew 5:13)
You’ve probably been in a movie theater enjoying a big bucket of salty, buttered popcorn. And all you could think about was washing it down with an oversized soda. My point is this: salt makes us thirsty.
So when Jesus told us to be “salty,” He was saying, in essence, “Let your life make others thirsty for God.”
I see brokenness and agony in people all around me, and I know you must see it too. But we can take heart that God wants to empower us to be channels of change. By our saltiness, we can be a powerful agent for Him to cleanse and heal wounded people all over our world.
The trouble is, many Christians don’t understand how to be salt in a world that so desperately needs to hear the truth about God’s love and redemption.
I know this resource will equip you to be God’s heavenly “salt” on critical issues like abortion, same-sex marriage, and more.
Thank you for helping bring the Good News of Jesus to our thirsty world through PowerPoint. I’m truly grateful!

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The first verses of Genesis lay out God’s perfect plan, a process that created earth and sky and oceans and rivers, a paradise that would provide for every need of His greatest creation, humanity.
