Living Way Christian Fellowship

Living Way Christian Fellowship is one of the many testimonies of how God calls and use ordinary people to do extraordinary things for His kingdom. Pastor David Zamora is the senior pastor of this congregation. Watch his inspiring testimony in the below YouTube video.

Things That Matter: David Zamora, From Gang Life to Life in Christ

Living Way Christian Fellowship of Fontana began as a home bible study. The study met in the backyard of Rick Macias’ home, who was then David’s coworker and later assistant in the ministry. David Zamora, being delivered from his drug addiction and life of bondage, taught from God’s word at each meeting. His desire was simply to share the message of God’s heart changing power through teaching the Holy Scripture to any who would be in attendance. As the weekly meetings grew, and the backyard no longer provided sufficient space, they sought out a new venue. Their bible study was then graciously invited to join in fellowship with Fontana Foursquare, at that time being pastored by the late Hector Arreola. The role of senior pastor was passed on to David Zamora by Pastor Arreola before he retired, not too long after he went on to be with the Lord.  To this day Living Way grows in the community of Fontana, Ca, where we host many local outreaches (i.e. feeding ministry), launch out mission trips, and broadcast radio teachings.

Free Course Lectures: Fundamentals of Expository Preaching

The Master’s Seminary made lectures of one of their Masters of Divinity courses available free of charge. The course available for free viewing is Fundamentals of Expository Preaching. The course is presented by John MacArthur and Steven Lawson.

John MacArthur, founder of Master’s Seminary, defines Expository preaching as follows:

The message finds its sole source in Scripture. The message is extracted from Scripture through careful exegesis. The message preparation correctly interprets Scripture in its normal sense and its context. The message clearly explains the original God-intended meaning of Scripture. The message applies the Scriptural meaning for today.

Excerpt from John MacArthur’s book: Preaching

These videos can be a great resource and source of information for equipping those interesting in going into a teaching ministry. Or it could serve as a helpful refresher to those already serving within a teaching or pastoral ministry.

The lectures are available on the Master’s Seminary website. We hope you will find it inspiring and useful for your ministry.

Desiring God

Desiring God was founded by Pastor John Piper. He started the ministry with the purpose to distribute tapes and write books, however, the ministry developed into a successful online ministry featuring over 12 000 free resources and more than 3.5 million monthly users.

Please read the excerpt from the ministry’s website below:

Most people in the world have no experience of deep and abiding joy.

Even though it is something we all desperately long for, the assurance that true happiness can be known — fully and forever — is a hope that billions of people live every day without. This is a tragedy.

Desiring God is on a mission to change that.

We aim to help people everywhere embrace a profound truth that changes everything about life and eternity: You were created for something greater than yourself. You were formed for something awesome and magnificent.

You were made to know glory — God’s glory. And the deepest longings of the human heart can be fully satisfied by pursuing that glory. In fact, God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him.

We call this truth Christian Hedonism. And declaring it to the world is why we exist.

Everything we create and distribute here at Desiring God exists to guide you toward everlasting joy in Jesus Christ. Here are a few of our most popular resources:

Ask Pastor John – Life is hard and often leaves us asking tough questions about God. Listen to John Piper answer these questions from the Bible.

Look at the Book – Can we really hear from God by reading the Bible? Absolutely! Watch John Piper study a short passage of Scripture (with color-coded highlights) and learn to know God through his word.

Solid Joys – By fueling our minds with truth day after day, our hearts will grow to see God as a satisfying treasure. Read or listen to a short, God-centered devotional from John Piper for every day of the year.

We also have thousands of articlessermonsbooks, and podcasts

Youth Apologetics Training

The Youth Apologetics Training ministry focuses on pertinent topics in culture, which includes issues such as creation/evolution, science and the Bible, Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, the New Age Movement, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, witchcraft (including wica), Mormonism, Jehova’s Witnesses, the Unification Church, Christian Science, Scientology, Word of Faith, and the New Apostolic Reformation.

Founder of Youth Apologetics Training, Michael Boehm

Below is an excerpt from the ministry’s website:

This ministry is for the new Christian as well as for the seasoned saint.  Don’t think that just because this ministry has “Youth” in the title, that we ministry has little for you to glean.  We at YAT believe that today’s youth are far more intelligent than many give them credit for.  In this blog and podcast, we go deep and explore some of the most advanced apologetics ideas and worldviews you will find out there.  The difference is that we believe in teaching these often-difficult subjects in a way that is easily understood and digested.

Behold Israel

Amir Tsarfati was born in Israel and has lived there most of his life. Since fulfilling his mandatory service in the Israeli Defense Force, he has continued as a major in the IDF Reserve. Amir has been a tour guide in Israel for the last twenty years, and served as chief tour guide of Sar El Tours and CEO of Sar El Tours and Conferences. In 2001, he became founder and president of Behold Israel – a non-profit organization which provides worldwide real-time access to reliable sources of news and information about Israel from within the powerful context of Bible history and prophecy.

Amir is married to Miriam, and together they have four children. His home overlooks the valley of Megiddo (Armageddon) which is a constant reminder of the call that the Lord has placed on him to teach from the Bible what God’s plans are for the end of times.

Behold Israel is a non-profit organization led by native Israeli Amir Tsarfati. Our mission is to provide reliable and accurate reporting on developments in Israel and the region. Amir’s live updates and teachings, based on God’s Written Word, sift out the truth on current events amidst global media bias against Israel.

Through our website, free app, social media and Amir’s teachings in multiple languages, we are able to reach communities worldwide. His teachings abroad and in the land explain the central role of Israel in the Bible as a blessing to the nations and a way to bring them to the Word of God and the Messiah.

Enduring Word

Enduring Word exists to promote the work of Christian discipleship and evangelism worldwide, mainly through the publication and dissemination of the Bible teaching work of David Guzik and likeminded people.

When David Guzik was a young pastor in Simi Valley, California, he (among many other pastors) was asked to send his teaching notes to the developers of a new internet Bible research site: Blue Letter Bible. In the late 1990’s, David’s material first appeared on the Blue Letter Bible, and was found to be a valuable resource.

David’s Bible resources – both in text and through audio and video – are used by many thousands of people every day. Many pastors, Bible teachers, and everyday Christians find these materials helpful.
