Focus on the Faithful

Support the Bible Advocate!

Support the Bible Advocate! What a year the last twelve months have been! We’ve endured much, but despite all of the challenges, God has been faithful. We’re still here “because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning” (Lamentations 3:22, 23). And we thank you, our readers, for being faithful as well through your […]

Our goal here is to challenge and encourage the Church of God to embody faithfulness, in our own time, after the examples […]

First Word – Found or Falling?

Found or Falling? It’s 2021, and I bet you are as ready to leave 2020 behind as I am. But a new year doesn’t mean a new world. The confused, chaotic forces unveiled last year are challenges that remain. Our theme for this year is “Faithful.” We ask, what does it mean to be faithful […]
