Back to Biblical Exposition
“After Saturday’s workshop, I have made a decision of preaching the Word of God as is, nothing added and nothing taken off. I want to grow more in the things of the Spirit and to know more about the people in the Bible, people like Isaiah, Habakkuk and many more. I must know their history before God’s encounter.” Cape Town
Expository Preaching Workshop
“‘To God Be The Glory Ministries’ would like to Thank You and your fellow colleagues for the wonderful opportunity that was afforded us to be amongst friends and God fearing men.

We also look forward to the next workshop you have planned.” Cape Town

Literature for Sudan
“In recent months it has become my sincere wish and deep desire to aid the Christians of Sudan. This venture of supplying Literature for spiritual leaders is especially dear to me, seeing that both my father and grandfather were and are avid lifelong students of Theology. The love for God's Word they have also instilled in me. I have tasted and seen that God's Word does not return void and I trust that the resources will be of great benefit to the ministry of local believers on the Frontline. Therefore, I want to share my willingness to support this venture. I am convinced it will be well worth this amount that myself and my wife are able to supply to enable the delivery of these resources.” Mr. & Mrs. M.

Reformation Society History Presentations
“I have stopped buying books and rather wait your erudite summary of incidents in History. When the truth of The 2nd World War is finally written, the likes of Churchill and Roosevelt will not appear squeaky clean. Yalta and the enslavement of Eastern Europe must certainly lie at the feet of the two of them. The real story of the political defeat of Rhodesia and South Africa, needs to be told when it was quite obvious that the two countries would follow the same pattern of those to the North of us where abuses of human rights is carried out and corruption has a stranglehold.” T. O.
Biblical Exposition Workshop
“Thank you to you, John, and the Team for putting together an informative Preaching Workshop. I learnt a great deal about the role preaching played in the Reformation and the number of sermons these men preached on a weekly basis. The workshop style and flow was very helpful for some of us who are reflective learners. The use of visual aids, notes including practicals, helped one to apply learning immediately. Q&A are never easy, particularly when bringing folks from different denominations or movements who have their own Biblical and Theological convictions. However, I think you handled the questions with grace and much patience – thank you for that. We look forward to the next workshop.” E., Cape Town

A lovely service. I thank you personally and on behalf of the Flame Lily Foundation.” Allan
Reclaim Campuses for Christ
“Your ‘Universities, Polyversities, Diversities and Aversities’ article is very interesting. Dr. Hammond is my hero, of course. Reminds me of Alma and the sons of Mosiah in terms of courage and dedication and he is so amazingly knowledgeable from a host of areas. If I weren't already in my mid 50s, I'd say I want to grow up to be just like him!” Dr. W. S.

You may not remember, but about 15 years ago you wrote an article regarding the Reformation for Joy Magazine, and me being a zealous new Catholic (I had converted a year earlier) emailed you trying to tell how wrong you were! Turns out 8 years later when I was in a Catholic Seminary I realised you were right all along. Your ministry is now more necessary than ever. You discuss topics on History and Theology no one wants to talk about - and I can't wait to hear your new podcasts when they get posted on SermonAudio.” – B, Turkey

The Word of God is Living, Powerful and Active
“I am so thankful this morning because of your amazing contribution the past few years to us with tracts in so many different languages and Bibles contributed to send to Africa and other countries - and to new Churches in South Africa. I had a Vision on the 20th of May 5h00 in the morning - I saw Jesus Christ standing in Heaven - and ten thousands of people came walking to Him with their Bibles clinging in their hands - singing a song in their native languages - tribes walking together by the thousands.!!! Jesus Himself were crying because of the JOY He was experiencing seeing all these ten thousands of souls won for the HIS KINGDOM by the WORD OF GOD.!!!!

Stability on the Word of God
“I just want to say thanks to you and Frontline Fellowship for providing for me a place of sanity during the time I was looking for a church to settle in, when church after church was madder than the previous church.
I know because of our radical stance in holiness to the Lord, leaving the world behind, doing everything for Christ, keeping the Law of God as best as we are able and winning the lost at any cost, no surrender and no retreat, has not made us friends amongst other churches, but we feel a camaraderie with Frontline.” – A.
