Sunday Morning Messages
Pastor Bill is not a "topical" preacher. He doesn't choose a topic or theme and use selected bible verses to serve as "proof texts". His messages are expository, namely that he chooses a passage of scripture and presents the meaning and intent of the text. This provides context, commentary and examples, making the passage clear and understandable.
