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!

There are certain reminders that believers need to hear again and again. One of the most important of these is to continue to check the filters through which we read and interpret Scripture. While this reminder predominates in seminary textbooks, Phil Baker demonstrates to a more popular audience the dangers of reading the Bible through the wrong lenses. The readers will enjoy the captivating topics and passages Baker covers and especially appreciate the pastoral tone in which he does so.”

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.
