All These Words is designed to direct the church toward the Word of God, the gospel according to the Scriptures, and the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, and away from the dangers of churchy self-celebration and Christian religious talk that has no power. For a more detailed explanation of what ATW is about, see our inaugural post here.
