Our Purpose

Our Theme Verse: "Preach the Word! Be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine" - 2 Timothy 4:2

'Preach The Word' is a not-for-profit Christian ministry which exists to provide sound Bible teaching to all. In these days when error abounds and false teaching seems to come from everywhere, we seek to provide you with challenging Bible-based teaching and preaching, through the ministry of David Legge.

In the words of C.H. Spurgeon: "We must follow after Jesus if we would succeed. Sensational methods, entertainments and so forth - are these coming after Jesus? Can we imagine the Lord Jesus drawing a congregation by such means as are now commonly used? We must keep to our preaching as our Master did, for by this means souls are saved. We must preach our Lord's doctrine, and proclaim a full and free gospel. We must preach with His gentleness, boldness and love; for this is the secret of success with human hearts. We must work under divine anointing, depending upon the sacred Spirit".

Preaching of the Word is what you will find here. That's it and that's all.

"There is today no lack of Bible teachers to set forth correctly the principles of the doctrines of Christ, but too many of these seem satisfied to teach the fundamentals of the faith year after year, strangely unaware that there is in their ministry no manifest Presence, nor anything unusual in their personal lives. They minister constantly to believers who feel within their breasts a longing which their teaching simply does not satisfy. I trust I speak in charity, but the lack in our pulpits is real. Milton's terrible sentence applies to our day as it did to his: 'The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed'. It is a solemn thing, and no small scandal in the kingdom, to see God's children starving while actually seated at the Father's table" - A W Tozer
