Why Faith is the Key to Conversion

It is not difficult to believe in God but to have a general kind of belief does not lead to true reconciliation with Him. 'Saving faith' is the vital key. Why should this be essential? What is it and how is it expressed?

Lord of the Sabbath

Here are the purposes of the sabbath, the additional purpose after deliverance from Egypt, and the even greater purpose after the resurrection of Christ. Here also is the error of rejecting the fourth commandment today, and how Christ is the Lord of the sabbath.

May Truth be Found?

We hear of 'your truth'. Can 'truth' be known by viewing material facts only, and ignoring the spiritual? Christ's words, 'I am the Truth' show how He presents Himself as the reason for everything, the Creator of all and the revealer of spiritual life.

The Mind of Christ

First - what Christ saw in Matthew; second - Christ viewed as the Physician; third - why the disciples did not fast; fourth - the patching of the old garment and the new wine into old bottles: the distinctiveness of the testaments, and the necessity of total conversion for seekers.

A World-Changing Miracle

'Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing.'

The Merger of Calvinism with Worldliness
Dr Peter Masters

A new form of Calvinism took the shape of a movement around 2005, but it differed in its acceptance of ‘the world’. 'New Calvinism' is not a resurgence of the old but an entirely novel formula which strips the doctrine of holy conduct, and unites it with the world. But the Scriptures say that 'the friendship of the world is enmity with God.'

Is Temptation (Such as Same-Sex Attraction) Sinful?
Dr Peter Masters

'But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed’ (James 1.14). We often hear it said, ‘It is not a sin to be tempted. It only becomes sin when you succumb to temptation.’ But this statement is seriously inadequate and mistaken, being contrary to many biblical passages and also to the great confessions of faith.

The Dissolving of Doubts
Dr Peter Masters

‘These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe…’ (1 John 5.13). This verse is written for those who doubt whether they have been forgiven and saved by God, and struggle with assurance.

Keeping the Church Separate from the World
Dr John Gresham Machen

‘..if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?' In these words our Lord established at the beginning the distinctness and separateness of the church. If the sharp distinction is ever broken down between the church and the world, then the power of the church is gone.

The Charismatic Illusion

Peter Masters and John Whitcomb


Now with more answers to questions asked by people investigating the arguments, this veteran book contends for the biblical position on the gifts that prevailed for nearly 2,000 years before the charismatic movement came along. Here is the dynamic teaching of the Spirit that sustained true believers through dark and bright years of history.



Hallmarks of Christian Character

Dr Peter Masters


Here are great themes for the Christian life. Beginning with the foundation of humility, these pages show the real pilgrimage shared by true Christians, their outgoing helpfulness, their closeness to God, their attitude to serving the Lord, their happiness and their access to the power of the Spirit.



Nearly a Christian

C H Spurgeon


'The greatest tragedy must be the person who dies just outside the gate of life. They are standing just outside, but not stepping over the threshold themselves. Almost saved - but altogether lost. For someone who has yet to accept Christ as their Saviour, reading this book could be the most important step they ever take.



Baptism – the Picture and its Purpose

Dr Peter Masters


Baptism is not essential to salvation (how can it be, as it follows conversion?), yet it is very clearly required by the Lord. Here is the fourfold pictorial message of baptism intended by God for the believer, the church, and the world. And here also are the biblical reasons why baptism is for believers only, by immersion.
