“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Welcome: Greetings and blessings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We welcome you to Emmanuel Grace; the preaching, teaching and counseling ministry of Pastor Brett Woody. We pray that you will be richly blessed in the knowledge of God and His will through the many resources that we will be providing for your instruction in the Christian faith and your growth and sanctification in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Vision: When fully developed, this website is designed to be a comprehensive spiritual atlas and body of Christian knowledge that will provide free resources (including thousands of sermons, lectures, documents, treatises, confessions, catechisms, educational resources, and over 100 previously unpublished books) covering every subject for your learning and spiritual education in the knowledge of God and its application for life: Bible Survey, Biblical Exposition, Systematic Theology, the Christian Life, Marriage and the Family, Apologetics, Politics and Government, Church History, The Reformed Confessions, Puritan works, Christian Devotion, Church and Ministry, as well as a program for Christian education and discipleship for every age and level of instruction; and that from a distinctly Reformed and Puritan conviction. We will also be providing a vast number of resources and links to the best of Biblical scholarship and godly Christian knowledge that is available, including the vast body of knowledge from the Protestant Reformers and the Puritans. This includes many previously unpublished works and manuscripts. So what is now on this website is only a very small offering of what we hope will be in the near future a very large work and venture.

Purpose: Our great design is to glorify God by helping Christians throughout the world, including pastors, teachers, Christian educators, missionaries, church officers and other Christian leaders to grow in the knowledge of God through Scripture and sound doctrine, that they might be fully established in their faith in Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of the world, and the divine authority and all-sufficiency of His word, in order to live for His glory, build a godly marriage and family, serve others in Christian love, defend the Gospel, and advance Christ’s name and glory in the church and the world. Our aim is to promote revival and reformation in the Church, and the greater growth and sanctification of believers in the knowledge of Christ so that they may better glorify and enjoy God in their life and service as Christians.

Confidence: We are confident that as you listen to the sermons or read any of the many lectures, theological treatises, books, articles, catechisms, or poetry on this site, you will advance greatly in your knowledge of and love for God, and of the Lord Jesus Christ, and experience the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. You will come to better know the incomparable truth, beauty, inspiration, infallibility, and all-sufficiency of Holy Scripture and its application to all of life. You will also learn to see how blessed and wonderful it is to be a redeemed sinner saved by grace through Jesus Christ, and loved by God with an everlasting love. And you will come to know better the incredible blessings that God has provided for you and your family by His grace and mercy through Jesus Christ and His saving work.

Calling: Who am I? I am a sinner saved by grace through the full merit and mediation of Jesus Christ, and by virtue of His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead; and I am called to be a disciple of His to advance His name and glory in the world. What is my office, and my calling? Depending on the time of day, or the day of the week; I am a pastor, a teacher, a reformer, a theologian, a marriage and family counselor, an historian, an apologist, an adviser to statesmen, a prophet to the world, a hymn-writer, a home-school father, a college and seminary professor, a servant to the homeless, a devoted husband to the best and most beautiful wife in the world, a father of the ten most wonderful children, a father-in-law to a prince, and also a grandfather of one Solomon the son of David. My greatest desire is to use the gifts that God has given me to make His truth known and to advance His glory in the world, with the greatest clarity, conviction, and eloquence. Why? Because Jesus Christ the Lord deserves the best! We should give Him our love who desires it most, and give Him our life who deserves it best!

Commitment: I love and serve all Christians who know and love Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, from every continent, country, race, ethnicity, age, and denomination. But I am a thorough-going Reformed pastor and Westminster Puritan devoted to Scripture, sound doctrine, true Christ-centered worship and preaching, the evangelization of the world, the edification of the saints, the building of godly Christian families, the godly pursuit of reformation in the church, and the greater glory of God.

Prayer: God love you and bless you. And may God be glorified in your life and family, as well as in your service for Him through Jesus Christ; and may He keep you in His grace and peace, that you may live now and forever with Him in glory.
