Sermon

The CDPC pulpit is committed to Expository or Topical preaching from the Word of God.

Expository Preaching

In expository preaching, we undertake a sustained study of a Scriptural text within its context to understand what the Spirit is saying to us today. This form of preaching requires continual preparation, prayer and exegetical precision, but the discipline of wrestling through difficult texts could be immensely rewarding.

Topical Preaching

In topical preaching, we select a topic, for example missions or spiritual gifts, and systematically gather related Scriptural texts to shed light specifically on the matter at hand. This form of preaching is generally easier to digest and helpful when certain relevant issues need to be addressed.

In all these we seek to be Gospel-Centered and Christ-Centered.
