    Micah Jackson: A Fisherman for Jesus

    Micah Jackson: A Fisherman for Jesus

    Dr. Micah Jackson says when Jesus called Simon and Andrew, he calls them not to abandon all they know as fishermen, but to put what they know to the service of the gospel, to catch people. It's the same kind of calling Jesus offers us, an invitation to a more fulfilled life where our gifts are used in all the ways God intended.

    Eric Shafer: Really With Us

    Eric Shafer: Really With Us

    Matthew tells a Christmas story from the point of view of Joseph, and unlike Luke with the singing angels and worshiping shepherds, we hear a story not of wonder but of heartache. The Rev.

Good Protestant Teaching

If your experience or assumption about Protestant churches comes from either nondenominational or non-mainline denomination preachers on television speaking out against this or that culture war issue, you owe it to yourself to hear what real Protestant teaching is and why the Bible's actually worth our attention. Day1 stands firm in the faith -- which makes it a breath of fresh air!
