"I have clear convictions about the declared word...
Very few of my own thoughts are profound enough to help any person, much less reveal God. Power is in believing the Word. When I preach I don't try to be overly clever, creative, or even original but simply honest and authentic with the text. I've found when I declare passages of scripture and ask the basic question, "What does the Bible have to say?", lives are changed and it transforms me as well. The power is in the Word."
