The audio messages, print articles, and books that are offered on this site are done with prayer that they will be an encouragement to you, and that you will have the opportunity to know Christ better. These materials have been made possible through the very faithful and dedicated efforts of the audio visual staff of Newport-Mesa Christian Center. When Dr.Wood first became pastor at Newport-Mesa Christian Center, the staff had the vision that the expositional ministry of Dr.Wood should be recorded and made available to the body of Christ. It was the vision of a volunteer, John Huntley, in late 2001, to make these materials available on the Internet, and he spent multiplied thousands of hours in digitizing these resources for you.
