1. Expository Preaching
At Heritage we believe that the Word of God is verbally inspired (2 Timothy 3:16), absolutely inerrant in the original documents, infallible, and God-breathed. Because of our high view of Scripture, we are committed to the proclamation of Scripture in a way that is expository in nature.
What is Expository Preaching? Expository preaching is a form of preaching that explains the meaning of a particular text or passage of Scripture. The goal of expository preaching is to faithfully speak the intended meaning of a particular passage based on the context using a literary, historical, grammatical approach to interpreting Scripture. We believe that the Church is best served & God is most glorified through this method of preaching. (see Al Mohler's defense of expository preaching)
Expository preaching is the first pillar and is far and away the most important, because if you get this one right, all of the others should follow.
2. Biblical Theology
Theology is simply the study of God. One of the greatest deficiencies of the church today is not fully knowing and understanding who God truly is as revealed in His Word. Many have pieced together their own thoughts about God rather than listening to what the Bible says about the nature of God. The following five statements are crucial in understanding God correctly.
