SINGLE TITLES:

  1. The Essentials Of Our Faith (2012) By Ovo Okpubuluku
    The basic essentials of faith in Jesus Christ are itemized and expounded upon in this ePamphlet. Subjects presented, along with scriptures, include:
    God - Christ Jesus - The Holy Spirit - The Church - Sin And Forgiveness - Repentance From Dead Works - Faith Toward God - Instructions On Baptisms - Laying On Of Hands - Resurrection - Eternal Judgement - Eternal Life

  2. Why The Devil Gave Us The Modern Pastoral Office (2017) By David Oludairo
    The concept of one man ruling over the assembly, one man ruling over the Church in a city, and one man ruling over the entire Church in the world is almost as old as the Roman Empire itself and patterned after that Empire which merged with Christianity in the 4th century. It is a concept that is altogether unknown in the Church of the first century. Although almost universally embraced today, what was God's design for HIS Church? Was it the present system of one man ruling or was it a quorum of those more mature in the faith (elders) as servants and examples to the flock relying upon the unity of the Holy Spirit in their midst to even function? - PDR

  3. The Papal And Hierarchial System - Compared With The Religion Of The New Testament (1843 ed.) By Joseph John Gurney
    A remarkably exposing book written in the 1840's on the simplicity of the life of Christ residing and functioning in His Church - His body on earth and the difference between that and the Church system we have today. I apologize that I am unable at this time to restore the Greek and Hebrew words in the footnotes and context.

  4. The Centrality And Supremacy Of The Lord Jesus Christ (1933) By T. Austin-Sparks
    A Series of Conference Messages on the subject, as spoken by T. Austin-Sparks, published by Witness and Testimony Publishers in 1933. This version published originally by Emmanuel Church.

  5. The Bruised Reed And Smoking Flax (1630) By Richard Sibbes, D.D. (1577-1635)
    In recovering this text (from a reprint done in 1878), I have endeavored to keep the original as accurately as possible while only making changes to those old English words that would make it uncomfortable to the modern reader. Beyond that much of the style of the 1600's is left intact and with a little help from the Lord, the reader will get quickly used to that as though observing another place and time in history. With that mindset, let us proceed to inspect the Puritan mindset laid out for our edification and understanding in this work as we explore the very nature and calling of Christ.

  6. Let My People Go (2007, 2009, 2014) By David W. Dyer
    One of God's main purposes is to build a habitation for Himself. This book is a new and penetrating look at what His word reveals to us about His eternal house. God is calling men and women today to turn back to Him and work together with Him in constructing His eternal home. He is looking for those who will respond with all their hearts and dedicate themselves to His service. He is searching for those whose hearts will respond to His heart.

  7. The Recovering Of The Lord's Testimony In Fullness (1953-54) By Theodore Austin-Sparks
    There are three things which are essential to an adequate life with God, to a fullness of the Christian life. Firstly, the realization that God is concerned with the accomplishment of something worthy of Himself. The second thing is that people shall become aware of what that great something in the heart of God is, what it is that God is so concerned with, and then that they shall be moved to co-operate with Him in it. And then, in the third place, that we recognize that this object in the heart of God and this co-operation with Him by His people involves very real conflict and cost, and that His people must face that and be ready to accept it.

  8. Who's Touching The Ark? (1996) By Leonard Ravenhill
    A sermon by Leonard Ravenhill based on the Ark of the Covenant, how it was made according to the Lord's instructions and who was allowed to touch it and the fearful consequences of those who would alter it or touch it without the Lord's permission as it relates to today's Church.

  9. The Cross & The Powers of Darkness (2003, 2020) By William Furioso
    We have a calling that could be referred to as “The Even Greater Commission”: “… that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 3:10 Jesus laid down His life for a Bride who will love Him more than herself. The Lord purposed to have a Church that would demonstrate the wisdom and power of self-denying obedience in order to put to shame the powers of darkness. When the Body of Christ, the Church, rises above self-preservation to a self-denying obedience in demonstration of THE CROSS, God will be finished with the powers of darkness and they will be condemned to their eternal punishment.

  10. TAKE NO THOUGHT FOR TOMORROW: What did Jesus mean?
    (An in-depth study of Matthew 6:24-34) (2020)
    By David Oludairo
    “TAKE THEREFORE NO THOUGHT for the morrow….”, with this clear instruction, Jesus concluded the radical teaching we read in Matthew 6:24-34. This instruction lays the foundation for some of the challenging conditions that Jesus would later prescribe for all that aspire to follow Him as disciples. “Forsake ALL that you have….” (Luke 14:33). “Sell your possessions, and give to the needy….” (Luke 12:33). And so on. This 21-Day study of Matthew 6:24-34 explores the deep meaning of the passage, and challenges us to learn to TRUST GOD completely – if we want to truly follow Jesus Christ.

  11. The Pursuit Of God (1948) By A. W. Tozer
    A. W. Tozer's Christian classic on the pursuit of God and living in Christ. (Unabridged) Chapters: Following Hard after God, The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing, Removing the Veil, Apprehending God, The Universal Presence, The Speaking Voice, The Gaze of the Soul, Restoring the Creator-creature Relation, Meekness and Rest, & The Sacrament of Living.

  12. Are You A Member? And Of What? (early 1900's) By George Cutting
    A very piercing short review of one's relationship with God and the scriptural truth of fellowship with others in Christ built upon that foundation. Written approximately in the early 1900's.

  13. Eagle Saints Arise! (1967) By Bill Britton
    FROM THE PREFACE: The chapters of this book by Bill Britton are made up from a series of messages written and published in a booklet form in earlier days of this writing ministry. Our purpose in these messages is to show that God has a people that are rising above the earth-bound conceptions of carnal men and their static theology. The ecclesiastical orders and religious organizations of our day would keep God's people in spiritual slavery if they could. But thank God, the Truth is flowing like a river in this generation, freeing the minds of the elect from the traditions of men, enabling them to soar to new heights of revelation. God is not dead, and the Holy Spirit has not stopped opening up the Scriptures to those who have eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts to believe.

  14. The Ignatian Epistles Entirely Spurious (1886) By William Dool Killen, D.D.
    The early Church functioned under multiplicy of elders noted as those more mature in their faith and commendable in their lives but in a few centuries with the development of the dominating Roman Church, a more hierarchial form of Church government appeared with singular Bishops at the head of each church and ultimately with the headship of the singular Papal leader over the entire Church. Much of the basis for this transformation is claimed to be found in the seven Epistles of Ignatius who died shortly after the end of the first century. There are many articles refuting these Epistles as forgeries but in this book, the author goes into a brilliant refutation of them leaving the claim of singular leadership in the Church by some, whether pastors, bishops or the Pope in serious discreditation.

  15. The Ancient Church: Its History, Doctrine, Worship, and Constitution, Traced for the First Three Hundred Years. (1859) By William Dool Killen, D.D.
    In the interval between the days of the apostles and the conversion of Constantine, the Christian commonwealth changed its aspect. The Bishop of Rome — a personage unknown to the writers of the New Testament — meanwhile rose into prominence, and at length took precedence of all other churchmen. Rites and ceremonies, of which neither Paul nor Peter ever heard, crept silently into use, and then claimed the rank of divine institutions. Officers, for whom the primitive disciples could have found no place, and titles, which to them would have been altogether unintelligible, began to challenge attention, and to be named apostolic. It is the duty of the historian to endeavour to point out the origin, and to trace the progress of these innovations. An attempt is here made to lay bare the causes which produced these changes, and to mark the stages of the ecclesiastical revolution.

  16. Why Revival Tarries (1959) By Leonard Ravenhill
    Leonard Ravenhill's call to revival is as timely now as it was when first published nearly 60 years ago. The message is fearless and often radical as he expounds on the disparity between the New Testament church and the church today, emphasizing prayer and passion over comfort and intellectualism.

  17. According To Christ (1959) By T. Austin-Sparks
    The essential nature of a 'New Testament church': how such a church is formed, what are the principles which govern it. A remarkable insight into the life and purpose of the Church and Christ in it's midst. This is a must read for all those that would tread on the waters of reformation.

  18. The Remnant Church (2018) By Lynette Hughes
    A short pamphet on the Remnant Church in the end times with very clear and scripturally backed insights into God's plan for that remnant church.

  19. One Body In Christ (1968) By Kokichi Kurosaki
    The Character and Nature of the Oneness of the Body of Christ. At the very heart of things there is a deep-seated problem which if not met will finally disannul all other victories we may achieve. Scripture tells us this - and, thus far, the glorious but sad history of the Church bears ample witness. It is with this root need that our Japanese brother so ably addresses himself in these pages - not merely pointing out the problem, but with true spiritual insight giving the answer.

  20. One Body Many Churches - The Evils Of Denominationalism (2019) By Dayo S. Alamu
    The book, 'One Body, Many Churches: The Evils of Denominationalism' is one of the most edifying and informative reads on the subject matter written not just from the perspective of history, scholarship and theology, but from the view point of doctrine and sound exegesis. In this enrapturing piece, Dayo Stephen takes us through a walk on the origins of denominationalism...(Click on title to see full description)

  21. The Simplicity That Is In Christ (2018) By Dayo S. Alamu
    It is obvious that Christianity has become complicated. Where did the complications come from? They are from the devil through man. The complications, complexities and confusions in Christianity today are as a result of the deceptions of the devil away from the simplicity that is in Christ. This book is all about the simplicity of both life and service of Christians as found in the Word of God against the complications introduced by the devil through the agent of the flesh. Read, digest and take proper actions....(Click on title to see full description)

  22. Another Jesus, Another Spirit, Another Gospel (2017) By By Dayo Stephen Alamu & Ademola F. Abimbola
    A Classic Critique of Today's Popular Preachers in Nigeria. You will find in this book the truth of God's Word in contrast to teachings and practices prevalent, nowadays, among God's own people but which are contrary to what God truly says. As you will read in this book, we traced how the problem stems from many of the Nigerian popular preachers who, for selfish reasons, erred from the truth and copied these false teachings from their foreign counterparts in USA. Let us show you what you need to know more about: - Self-help and self-esteem philosophies, - Success Formulas, - Positive Confession, - Positive and Possibility Thinking, - Prosperity Gospel, - Ye-Are-God Doctrine, - Divine Healing Scandals, etc.

  23. Anatomy Of The Prosperity Gospel (2019) By Abiodun Jemilohun
    The main objective of this treatise is to conduct a thorough examination of the prosperity theology as it currently exists in the light of the Bible, the written Word of God, which is the only authentic canon by which the veracity or otherwise of all Christian doctrines and practices can be established. This book looks into over 200 scriptures in context regarding the subject matter.

  24. ERRORS OF THE WORD OF FAITH: Unveiling a Cleverly Concealed Lie (2019) By Abiodun Jemilohun
    Theology espouses several concepts that were hitherto unknown in mainstream Christianity. These concepts have now become so popular that only someone who is well acquainted with church history can discern them as foreign to the Christian faith. This volume is another genuine attempt to examine this theology under the searchlight of the holy scripture. (Click to see more)

  25. HOW PEOPLE PROSPER FINANCIALLY: A Christian Perspective on Economic Prosperity (2019) By Abiodun Jemilohun
    The author through fidelity to the truth in the scriptures and the public sphere objectively disproves at every turn and rationally dismantles the “Prosperity gospel” narrative. The “Prosperity gospel” is anti-scriptural, promotes an anti-Christian work ethic, mystifies wealth, makes God a lottery machine and ultimately robs the Christian of the blessings that God has bestowed on honest labor and the joys therein. He went beyond that in this treatise to show how the Christian can actually prosper ... (Click to see more)

  26. The Epistle To The Romans: A Bible Study And Commentary (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "They were to disciple NATIONS, not just the Jewish people. It was not to be a religion like the Jewish religion of Judaism, hence it is described as the Faith and its adherents are to be people who are in obedience to its tenets. The Faith therefore is descriptive of a set of teachings taught to the nations which if they were obeyed from the heart, would result in life transforming realities. It is this body of teachings - the things that its adherents BELIEVE in, that we call the doctrines of Christ."

  27. The Righteous Church (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "'Where there is no hatred for iniquity how can there be a love of righteousness.' In the New Testament we see the preservative - Salt, symbolizing the Church; this is the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus with which we are clothed as his people. But as yet we do not see Nigeria exalted as a nation because of divine righteousness. Even the righteousness of the 'Church in Nigeria' appears to be non existent judging by the deteriorating conditions and the unabated increase in CORRUPTION. If the Church is still the salt of the earth in this nation, then the proof of it would be the exaltation of Nigeria; but if this salt has lost its savour then it has become worthless."

  28. The Righteousness Of God In Christ Jesus (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "And when the king came in to see the guests, He saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: Matthew 22:11 He had been so confident of his acceptance at the gate the moment he showed them his BORN AGAIN invitation; after all he didn't invite himself, he was CALLED, and the gate men too had not been quite sure. He looked born again, he just wasn't wearing the dress code. They didn't think it mattered so they let him in. But when the King of righteousness came in to see his guests; all but this ONE man had on the wedding garment, so it was easy to single him out. Friends, in addition to the invitation, THERE IS A DRESS CODE!"

  29. How To Be Led By The Spirit (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "There is no practical guide to being led by the Spirit, but there are things we can do that will assure his leading. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come. - John 16:13 His leading is first and foremost a guidance into ALL truth. Without truth in the heart, in the inward man; not merely on the lips, it is impossible to receive his guidance, for he is the Spirit of Truth! Truth will always be affirmed and rubber stamped by the conscience. It will bear witness to the truth in you, or condemn the lie within."

  30. The Power Of The Conscience (2019) By Anthony Livingstone
    From the book: "It is the first thing a new believer learns - that the blood of Jesus purifies us from all sin. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. - 1 John 1:7 But it is a further step in the Christian walk to learn that not only were our sins forgiven, but also our consciences were purified from all DEAD WORKS. What does it mean for our consciences to be purified from all dead works?"

  31. Truth Stumbles In The Streets (2020) By Dayo Stephen Alamu
    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (Jn. 8:32). Jesus, who is “the truth” personified is WRONGLY presented to people. It is another Jesus our preachers are pointing people to. The truths Jesus spoke which the Apostles preached have also been compromised. What we hear preached today is another gospel. This small book takes you through some hard but important truths (that our preachers are hiding from us) which will set you free and build you up to become a very strong Christian.

  32. Beware Of Old Prophets (2020) By Dayo Stephen Alamu
    One of the riskiest things to do is to want to learn from one's mistake, because one may not live to tell the story. It is safe and wise to learn from others mistakes. There are many people in the bible that we can learn from. This book is all about learning from the mistakes of some Bible characters. Therefore, before the same mistakes are repeated, let us learn from Jeroboam, the man of God from Judah and the old prophet; all from 1Kings 13

  33. The Normal Christian Church Life By Watchman Nee
    A classic by Watchman Nee on the subject of the scriptural essence and ordering of the Christian Church formed in each locality in unity and oneness. This is a generic copy. The things of Christ belong to Christ. There is some very good insight into how the Lord orders His people around the world and in each locality. This book goes a long ways in apprehending the heart of the Lord towards His Church.

  34. The EndTime Codes (2020) By Anthony Livingstone
    This book connects the dots in many places relating to the prophetic and the end times events. A very vivid portrayal of events and actors along with quite a bit a background in scripture all the way back to Genesis. The author has done his homework on this one and it is very much a "must read." If nothing else it will drive the reader back into the scriptures "to see if indeed these things are true." It is a Bible study in and of itself.

  35. The Lucifer Agenda (2020) By Anthony Livingstone
    This book connects the dots in many places relating to the prophetic and the end times events and is a sequel to the book, "The EndTime Codes". A very eye opening portrayal of events and actors along with quite a bit a background in scripture on the events in the end times related to the antichrist, the events in heaven and on earth and God's purpose in allowing those things to come to pass and the believer in Christ's place in all of it. The author has done his homework on this one and it is very much a must read. If nothing else it will drive the reader back into the scriptures to see if indeed these things are true.

  36. A New & Living Way (2018-20) A Collection of Essays Investigating New Covenant Worship in Spirit & Truth By William Furioso
    This series is the fruit of more than 40 years of intensive study, prayer, research, and reflection, as well as, a varied experience in church life, ministry, and meetings. In passionate pursuit of that “New & Living Way” which Christ has opened to us through the New Covenant, the Holy Spirit has given insight and instruction through His scriptures all along this spiritual journey - shedding light on the nature, the meaning, and the experiential realities of the New Covenant, moving beyond the ritualism and sacramentalism of the elementary principles of the world into worship in Spirit and truth ...
