About-

Sermons on an Evangelical Statement of Faith

When the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) was founded in 1942, Harold John Ockenga was elected as it first president. By the following year, the young organization had adopted a written statement of faith affirming its commitment to historic Christianity, to the truth of Scripture, and to sound doctrine. As pastor of Boston's historic Park Street Church, Ockenga took the opportunity to preach a series of sermons explaining the basic teachings of the NAE and applying them to the life and labors of his congregation. His clear and powerful expositions are as relevant today as they were when they were first delivered.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“My earliest memory as a child was attending the second meeting of the National Association of Evangelicals held in Chicago in 1943 with my parents and their close friends, the Ockenga family. It was at that meeting that the new NAE Statement of Faith was adopted—the document on which Harold John Ockenga subsequently focused his attention in the series of Sunday evening sermons you now hold in your hands. To read these sermons today is a marvelous walk back into the history of the mid-twentieth century re-emergence of authentic Evangelicalism. These powerful messages are also a helpful reminder that today’s preaching must never neglect its responsibility to uphold the whole teaching of the faith once delivered to the saints with gracious theological and pastoral integrity."

—The Rev. Dr. John Huffman, Chair, Board of Trustees, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
