Pastor Ralph Ovadal
During time of spiritual declension and cultural decay, the true, faithful church of God has few friends, feels forlorn, suffers all manner of slander, and sustains many wounds. She looks to many to be a forgotten widow instead of a wife. At such times, she will always hear a chorus of voices insisting that if she were in God's will, she would not be suffering such privations and persecutions, such isolation and condemnation. But God forbid that we would justify our opponents. God forbid that we would remove our integrity from us.
Job suffering trials integrity compromise
1 Timothy 6:6-21
Pastor Ralph Ovadal
The martyrs of Jesus who approached the stake, the block, the scaffold with a sure, steady tread and peace in their hearts were not only saved by God's grace through faith, but they had also truly laid hold on eternal life.

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.
