The Higher Calling is a podcast covering biblical principles and Christian ethics as preached in church services at the Avondale Church of God in Avondale, AZ.
The purpose of the podcast is to deliver meaningful biblical concepts that address the human condition and its relationship with God to those looking for a supplemental bible study (target audience is a non-Church of God attendee). As the apostle Paul wrote in a letter to a young minister named Timothy: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. The Holy Bible, KJV, 2Ti 3:16-17 The scriptures of the Old and New Testament, rather than popular cultural attitudes, or the ideas of some particular religious organization should be applied as a template for correct moral conduct addressing all areas of life. This podcast can complement your religious activities but is not intended as a substitute for personal devotional exercises, church attendance.
The topics presented here will include, but are not limited to, what the bible has to say about:
The purpose of man

As the podcast develops we will be able to gather data about the listeners and with prayer and inspiration from God be more able to taylor each message to the listener and work as effectively as possible.
