John Whitcomb: July 25, 2016

Host Wayne Shepherd leads us into the beginning of a two-part overview of the faithfulness of God in the life, family and ministry of Dr. John Whitcomb—our speaker on “Encounter God’s Truth”—over the past 75 years.

This very personal account reminds us clearly of our theme on this program—that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. This fact has certainly been evident in Dr. Whitcomb’s life.

His testimony includes details about his parents, childhood, conversion to Christ, military service in World War II, call to the ministry and seminary training. We trust that you will find it to be encouraging and motivating.

This presentation was given in June of 2016 before the 96th annual meeting of the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship International, which was held at the Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis. Whitcomb Ministries thanks both organizations for permission to broadcast this audio on “Encounter God’s Truth.”
