Pastor Ralph Ovadal
"For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly." Jesus Christ died for the unwashed, unjustified, unsanctified, ungodly. How can the ungodly become godly by good deeds? The ungodly are condemned by what they have done and by what they have not done. The ungodly are condemned by what they are and by what they are not and because their very nature is at enmity with God. But if sinners are justified by faith alone, in Christ alone, apart from works of the law, does this make Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.

Important: SermonAudio tags will appear on some of the messages found on this web site. We are not in any way affiliated with SermonAudio! Please read the following explanation.
Those who listen to archived sermons or Heart of the Matter programs on this web site will notice that, currently, when they download some of those sermons and HOM programs that a SermonAudio logo appears. This is because Pilgrims Covenant Church messages were for a number of years posted at SermonAudio. But due to the increasingly deep compromise of SermonAudio in posting sermons from ministers unfaithful either in doctrine or practice or both, and also on account of the many corrupt conferences advertised on SermonAudio, we withdrew from SermonAudio. However, I did not realize when posting our sermons and programs on that site on a page for which we paid that the management was tagging our MP3 files with the logo of SermonAudio. We are working to remove the SermonAudio logo from all of the sermons and programs posted on this site which were previously posted at SermonAudio. However, this takes much time; so we felt it important to post this explanation and also this warning concerning SermonAudio, a web site with many sound ministers, but also many which are corrupting the Lord's blood-bought church.
