How can you be sure of a call to pastoral ministry? What qualifications do you need? What exactly are you being called to?
Answering a call means dedicating your life to service through preaching and pastoring—duties vital to the church. George Robertson explores the implications of these tasks with input from pastors through the ages. Having considered these, you can carefully test and explore your call and evaluate your gifts in this area.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.
George W. Robertson is the senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Augusta, Georgia.
