Expository Preaching

Expository Preaching is public proclamation explaining what the Bible says, what it means and why the Bible matters. David Helm, author of "Expositional Preaching" says, "expositional preaching is empowered preaching that rightfully submits the shape and emphasis of the sermon to the shape and emphasis of a biblical text". This type of preaching is anchored to a vigorous conviction of the inspiration, inerrancy, infallibility, sufficiency, clarity, and authority of God's perfect word found in the Bible.
