What if we took Jesus at His word?

This is the question that has revolutionized my life. I believe this question matters, and has the power to change your life as well.

Welcome to my website. I hope that you enjoy your time getting to know a little bit more about me and the ministry I feel God has called me to. It would be an honor to serve you through speaking, leading worship, or writing. Also, feel free to EMAIL ME about any questions you have. Thanks for stopping by!

Jesus delivered revolutionary teaching by asking great questions. In that same spirit, Phil is asking questions that modern Evangelicalism desperately needs to be asking. The beauty of “New” is that it takes us back to ideas that are very old to bring biblical perspective to modern theological debates. It is refreshing to dive into the ancient Hebrew and Bible texts and also the writings of the earliest church fathers. Regardless of where you stand theologically, “New” is a helpful experience to process not only what you believe but why you believe it.  As you dig in, you might find that familiar traditions and beliefs are actually old wineskins in need of bursting. “New” journeys through Phil’s own questions of spirituality and faith, and it is a refreshingly honest narrative of pursuing the fullness of Christ.

The prophet Isaiah spoke on behalf of God, “Behold I do a new thing!”  I find great joy in watching the Spirit of God move in the lives of a new generation of Christian leaders.  Watching Phil Baker grow as a young man of God and vibrant leader has given me particular delight. I first met Phil as I taught him in a homiletics class at Houston Baptist University.  Later I saw how God used him as a gifted pastor.  Through his writing in this book I have come to know yet another dimension of his multi-faceted ministry. I commend this book to you wholeheartedly.  You will profit greatly by reading it and taking the truth into your soul.  In this book Phil demonstrates that the Spirit of our God is blowing with a new and fresh wind upon His church.
