Welcome to Promises in Christ (PiC), the teaching ministry of Nick Foss. Nick received his theological training from the Berkshire Institute for Christian Studies (Certificate), Lancaster Bible College (BS in Bible), and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (Master of Divinity). Nick and his wife Beccy have four daughters, Malina, Cecilia, Lydia and Audrea.
But more importantly, PiC is not to focus on Nick but is designed to bring glory to God through biblical teaching, ministry discussions and more. This ministry is designed not just to fill our intellectual banks with biblical truth but also to draw us intimately closer to Jesus Christ our Lord. One simple way to accomplish this is to focus on the promises of God found in the Bible, and therefore focus on Jesus himself. This leads the Apostle Paul to write:
“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory.” (2 Corinthians 1:20, ESV)
Please use PiC as a way to view the canvas of Scripture, which reveals that God’s promises are not empty words but seen and fulfilled in the person and life of Jesus Christ! To God be the Glory!
