Building up believers and the New Testament church

There have always been many voices saying, “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why another, then? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships.

Our purpose on the Anchor of Truth podcast is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony to the world around will be a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Encouraging Christian Fathers (now called Radical Christian Fathers) is a weekly source of encouragement and parenting insight for Christian fathers. The show is co-hosted by Joshua Sheats (a 32-year-old father of three) and Joshua's father, David Sheats (a 74-year-old father of 7 grown children and grandfather of 13). The combination of David's 51 years of parenting experience and Joshua's fresh and current challenges leads to engaging and relevant discussions on all aspects of parenting.
