Piper’s Notes

John Piper preaching solid, Biblical doctrine with consistently challenging applications. He has been pastoring at Bethlehem Baptist church in Minnesota for several years. His ministry, “Desiring God” is also included on this list with many helpful resources.

Toronto Baptist Seminary

Toronto Baptist Seminary is the one seminary that I am aware of that teaches reformed doctrine with a baptistic basis for their practices.

Squamish Baptist

Squamish Baptist church in Squamish, B.C. with Doug McGuire as the pastor has arranged with TBS to operate through his church a west coast campus for seminary training.

Founders Ministry

This is a ministry that arose out of a significant movement in the Southern Baptists in the States toward the sovereign grace of God. There are many solid men pastoring in churches and serving in key seminaries in the Southern Baptist that align with this Biblical teaching. They have had a significant impact on the Southern Baptist denomination. The Founders Ministry also provides training online primarily for those men going into the pastorate but others as well through their Founders Study Centre. I have been mentoring with them for close to a year.

Grace To You

This is the Canadian website for John MacArthur’s radio ministry, Grace to You. In addition to the resources that are available I highly recommend that you join their mailing list. They provide a CD or cassette once a month which has a selected message by John. I have collected books, cassettes and CD’s over the years and I have listened to several more than once and loan them out to others as well.

The Spurgeon Archive

One of the most well known evangelical preachers of all time, Charles Spurgeon. There are resources here that will both encourage and challenge you.

The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

This is another excellent resource that focuses on the Biblical teaching of the roles of men and women in the church and home. The name given to this teaching is complementarianism. That is, that God has designed men and women to have different roles or functions within the church and home. There are other very helpful materials as well such as the issue of translations, especially gender neutral translations and parenting resources.

The Center for Biblical Spirituality

Don Whitney’s site has many useful resources that are primarily practical. He has pastored and taught in seminary as well as writing several books related to the Christian walk. He has organized the site so that you can download some of the material for use immediately.

Desiring God

This is John Piper’s website that arose of his writing and speaking ministry. You will be challenged regularly to glorify God by being satisfied with Jesus Christ alone.

Bible Bulletin Board

Tony Capoccia started this ministry by transcribing John MacArthur’s sermons. These can be accessed from this sight as well as many other articles and Bible study tools. There is an inexpensive CD that can be purchased for home use also.

Alpha and Omega Ministries

James White has an excellent ministry of apologetics from a Reformed baptistic perspective. Again, there are resources from that area of ministry on this site.

Grace Community church

This is John MacArthur’s home church. The Grace Books International has a wide array of resources that provide solid Biblical teaching. You can access them through the 1-800 number.

E-Sword—free bible study software

There are many sites with free resources that utilize the internet and e-sword is one of them. But this ministry provides an excellent Bible study CD that is quite inexpensive and many of the online resources can be downloaded after purchase. It is possible to down load many of the resources online but for a donation you can have the resources anytime.

True to His Ways: Purity & Safety in Christian Spiritual Practice

“Not only charismatics, but all sincere Christians should read this book so they understand about the occult, and how Satan comes as an angel of light.” A.D., Retired Pastor

“Charismatics, Christians of all denominations, mystics of other faiths… all will benefit from this hard hitting yet compassionate book by an author who writes with love for God’s truth. ” J.D., Secretary

“I have learned more about God’s Word from your manuscript than four years of bible studies, teachings and fellowship. I now have a much clearer understanding of the bride of Christ, and thank you for sharing your exhaustive research into God’s truth. Now I understand! It is engraved in my mind, my body, my heart and my soul.” M.S., Homemaker
