Truth to Live By Ministries, set up by Dr Charles Somerville, came into being in order to take a stand on the inspiration, sufficiency and inerrancy of Scripture. It seeks to be obedient to the command of Christ, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel’.
In recent months Dr Somerville has travelled all over the UK, preaching in churches from Hampshire to Oban, and from Wigtown to Berwick-upon-Tweed.
Since he became a Christian at the age of 17, he has been excited by eschatology, the study of the end times. Truth to Live By does not just focus on biblical prophecy, but endeavours to teach the whole of God’s Word, exalting Christ, encouraging the church and seeking the lost with the good news of the gospel.
Charles serves as a deacon at Broxburn Baptist Church. He has never regretted following the advice of John Brand, principal at his Bible college that ‘we must always remain faithful to the text’. (More information: www.itinerantpreacher.co.uk).
