I am convinced that the Word of God substantiates the following sermon: Pastoral Authority or Leadership.
Left click here to go to all the messages preached at the Liberty Baptist Church of Albuquerque NM on September 16-19, 2018 Camp Meeting. These messages will challenge you as to Bible teaching on not only church organization but also other important New Testament Church doctrines. Should you disagree with any of the teachings, please call and tell us, from the KJB, why you disagree.
Here is the link to my teaching at that meeting: Is an Incorporated 501(c)3 Church a Church of Christ? That teaching. The testimony of an evangelist and former pastor who verifies that a church which is not a legal entity such as a corporation and/or 501(c)(3) or 508 church cannot be sued was removed from the presentation and put on as a separate video: Why a Church Is Not a Business. This proves that a New Testament church has more protection than an incorporated 501(c)(3) church.
Paris Reidhead, “Ten Shekels and a Shirt,” January 1, 1980 I suggest that the following teaching compliments and adds to Brother Reidhead’s sermon. It gives great insight to religious apostasy, moral awfulness, and political anarchy. It explains the way a nation always goes down, according to the Bible: Dr. J. Vernon McGee’s teaching on Judges 17-21.
“Authority, The Greatest Thing In The Universe,” Dr. Greg Dixon 2005. This sermon explains the importance of authority and power and correct doctrine. It explains how great men of God can proceed according to some false doctrine and the consequences. For example, John and Charles Wesleys’ teachings led to the tongues movement and all its modern derivatives and adnerents such as TD Jakes, Joycd Meyers, Kenneth Hagan, etc.
Testimony of Sister Charlotte, a former Catholic nun.
This is the shocking personal testimony of Sister Charlotte. She revealed the truth about what really goes on in the closed Catholic convents.
“Conquering the Kingdom of Self” was delivered by James Hoffmeister
Dr. Harold Sightler “Baptists Are Not Protestants” (I do not agree with this pastor on the people of a church owning the church. A church should be owned by the Lord Jesus Christ. Other resources on this website teach how this is possible. See, for example, Spurious rationale for church incorporation, to own property. Dr. Sightler’s teaching that the people of the church are to own the church is not according to New Testament church doctrine. Nonetheless, there is much to be learned historically from this sermon.)(To learn more on this subject, see The Trail of Blood of the Martyrs of Jesus, The History of the First Amendment or Abridged History of the First Amendment.

Pastor Aaron Campbell is pastor of Fountain Square Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, a church which adopted the Declaration of Trust by which the church declares herself to be a non-legal entity (a spiritual entity). As such that church is under the Lord Jesus Christ only. Pastor Campbell and his church have addressed the issues involved in depth. Pastor Campbell diligently studied various ways of organizing a church according to Bible principle. He concluded that utilizing the Declaration of Trust was the best way to do that. The following teachings by Pastor Campbell are excellent resources for a church who desires to please the Lord by remaining a spiritual entity:
- “Separation of Church and State” (010412), Pastor Aaron Campbell (In this message, Pastor Campbell explains basic church doctrine, the Declaration of Trust, the role of the pastor, giving to the Lord (not to the church since the church returns to the Lord in tithes and offerings a portion of that which He has entrusted to each church member, the pastor’s fiduciary responsibility as trustee, the beneficiary of the trust created by the Declaration of Trust, when the civil government goes outside its authority, etc.)
- “Government 1” (031112) Pastor Aaron Campbell
- “Government 2” (031112) Pastor Aaron Campbell
- “Questions and Answers” (031112) Pastor Aaron Campbell
Featured compiliation of sermons: The Revival Hymn (Note accompanying this compilation with which I agree: This is a compilation of voices from the past that spoke something of revival in the land. It is probably the most powerful 30 minutes of audio I have ever heard and it is almost certain to shake anyone to the core of their being! I have no idea who the original compiler of these clips was, but the intro edit was my own work. All the other video, audio compilation is by an unknown contributor.)

In order to effectively fight spiritual warfare, in addition to other matters, a believer must understand his adversary, the devil. The following three sermons explain much of what a believer should know about Satan:
