Pastor Ralph Ovadal
Will we live like Cretians or like Christians? This epistle certainly gives us fair warning with regard to the former. It gives us much encouragement and instruction with regard to the latter. I am going to point out many things today from God's Word, but I am not going to preach much on any one point since I am covering so much in one sermon, and the Scriptures we will be reading are so clear in regard to my purpose today. The first matter with which Titus was to be concerned was the ordination of strong, capable, godly elders in every city, in every church. A nation without a good, strong, and lawful government will destroy and consume itself. The people of such a nation will lapse into anarchy but will call it liberty. What happens with the civil state happens to churches as well.

The archives contained here are incomplete. As time permits, we will continue to upload the many hundreds of sermons and Heart of the Matter programs which were posted on our old audio page on another site.
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.
