Commendations About SermonIndex.net
'I deeply appreciate the fact that someone has taken the initiative to chronicle great sermons of the past. I personally find it good from the vantage point of study and encouragement. We must, however, be aware of the human tendency to idolize the past to the point where we so judge the present body of Christ that we lose our own fruitfulness and hope for the future. 'Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.' (Ecclesiastes 7:10).'|
- Carter Conlon (Senior Pastor of Times Square Church)
'How I thank the Lord for this great website and ministry. I am thankful that they make known so many of my own messages given over the last 50 years around the globe and so many other great messages. We need to all make this site more known.'
- George Verwer (Founder of Operation Mobilisation)
'Sermonindex.net has done the Body of Christ a great service by compiling and cataloguing thousands of sermons related to revival. Congratulations on ten years of ministry.'
- Byron Paulus (Executive Director of Life Action Ministries)
'Tell me another place online where you can listen to sermons from giants of the past like A. W. Tozer and Duncan Campbell, from passionate men of God like Leonard Ravenhill and David Wilkerson and Art Katz, from women with burning hearts like Basilea Schlink and Jackie Pullinger. What a gift from God to this generation is SermonIndex! In an age of extreme superficiality and shallowness -- much of it driven by the Internet -- it is only fitting that the Internet hosts a deep, penetrating website like this. May the fire go forth from here and touch multiplied millions!'
- Dr. Michael L. Brown (President, FIRE School of Ministry).
'Whenever we encounter the release of a new technology or discovery that begins in some way to affect the world, we have opportunity to ask what the purpose of God might be in allowing that to flourish. SermonIndex is a rare gem in the field of growing global web access for the people of God; the dedicated and sacrificial provision of often priceless treasures in ministry. For the last decade, both from many different generations and multiple streams of His wisdom, righteousness and glory, SermonIndex has been one of most useful modern gifts to the church in its opportunity to trace and freely share again what God has granted His servants.'
- Winkie Pratney (Revivalist, author, editor of Revival Study Bible).
'I enjoy using sermon index because it allows me to listen to messages from preachers who have gone on to glory. It is important that we remember we stand on the shoulders of giants. Hearing these voices reminds me, 'If it's new, it's not true.' These Biblically based messages allow us to check ourselves. They especially give preachers who have limited resources for sermon preparation, a valuable tool to enhance their study.'
- Michael Catt (Pastor, Sherwood Baptist Church).
'I am grateful to the Lord for SermonIndex. I know of no other place where one can get so many free materials from people who have not flinched from the cross of Christ and have lived lives that we can follow. This site is just what the body of Christ needs to prepare us for our Lord's return.'
- Dr. K.P. Yohannan (International Director of Gospel for Asia).
Sermonindex.net is not just a religious website. It is a ministry. And not just any ministry. This website is serving the Lord's servants around the world in a unique manner. And not only full-time preachers. Believers (and probably many thousands of unbelievers too) are benefiting from this wonderful ministry. I highly recommend this work of God. We wish God's blessing in this ministry.
- Erlo Stegen (Director of Kwasizabantu Mission)
'Thanks SermonIndex for the collection of so many worthwhile messages from such godly preachers, teachers and writers. We are benefiting greatly from the easy access to such powerful material. Thanks for all of your work and generosity toward the body of Christ!'
- Rich Carmicheal (Editor, Herald Of His Coming)
'Surely this instrument (SermonIndex) has been Divinely forged for such a time as this. An effective tool in the hand of the Holy Spirit with which He has stirred the hearts of many to expect God to visit us again.'
- David Legge (Preacher/Evangelist, Preach The Word).
'Sermon Index is a gift from God to the Body of Christ. I have lived my Christian life with an incredible hunger for more of the Lord. This deep desire is satisfied by seeking Jesus in prayer, personal Bible study, and by gleaning the deeper truths of God from those who preach His Word without compromise. I hunt down great teachings from those who have 'fought to the finish' and others who are still fighting with unquenchable commitment. When I saw the sermons of David Wilkerson and Leonard Ravenhill as part of the menu, the Lord immediately spoke to me of the treasure that was available. These men were my spiritual fathers for many years. Their delivery of the Word of God, both privately and publicly, was penetrating and life-changing. Log on and hear for yourself.'
- Steve Hill (Pastor/Evangelist, Steve Hill Ministries)
'When I think of the ministry of Sermon Index Isa. 59:19 quickly comes to my heart. 'When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.' The enemy surely has come in, but God will engage him. Sermon Index is one of His ways to engage the enemy. Praise God for a clear standard and banner to rally the troops with.'
- Denny Kenaston (Author Of The Godly Home Series).
'God has uniquely raised up Sermonindex.net as one of the primarily websites for pastors, church leaders, and interested believers who are trusting Him for revival in our day. This website allows us to feast on the treasures of godly men both past and present whose hearts and ministries God has profoundly touched to bless the world.'
- Ralph Sutera (Revivalist, Used in the 1970 revival in Canada).
'Sermon Index has influenced the lives of many thousands of people in a profound way. Recently a man came to see me who had listened to one of my sermons on-line. He said his small group was brought to a place of tears as the Lord took His Word and spoke to their hearts. May the Lord receive all the glory, and may SermonIndex.net continue to provide the means for people to hear His Word.'
- John McGregor (Pastor, Glencairn Alliance Church).
'A few years ago a friend introduced me to the ministry of Sermonindex and I was so blessed as I listened to sermons by some of the spiritual giants of the past. What a wealth of powerful preaching that most of us would never have access to if it were not for Sermonindex. One can only wonder how God will use this ministry in the next ten years.
- John Bennett (Director, Faith Mission in Canada).
'I believe that God has initiated Sermon Index for His Glory and His purposes. Listeners can encounter Him more intimately through the preaching and listening of messages that stirs and warm the heart. I am so glad that a brother has responded to the prompting of our Lord to provide such a practical tool that could at the same time be used as a catalyst of Revival.'
- Francois Carr (Founder, Heart Cry South Africa).
'I can't think of one time I've ever been disappointed while perusing the SermonIndex site. For those who are desiring to be fed with Christ-centered sermons and materials, there is no other place online that I recommend more highly than SermonIndex. Thank, SermonIndex, for 10 years of faithfully doing your part in spreading the Gospel of the Kingdom to the uttermost parts of the earth.'
- Scott Volk (Pastor, FIRE Church, Charlotte, NC).
'There is a great need in our day to be reconnected with the message of holiness, repentance and revival. No website online does that better than SermonIndex.net. I have personally been challenged and convicted numerous times by the timeless truths promoted through this great ministry!'
- Israel Wayne (Author/Conference Speaker, Family Renewal).
'Holy men of God preached in olden times because they were moved by the Holy Spirit. Such preaching is what Sermonindex.net has so ably capsulated for the hearer. Listen and be transformed.'
- David Ford (Preacher/Evangelist, Globe For Christ).
'The work of SermonIndex.net has spiritually fed, instructed, corrected, inspired, and simply blessed thousands upon thousands all over the world. I especially appreciate the heart for revival and spiritual awakening that is so evident on SermonIndex.net. I'm happy commend this excellent resource to everyone, everywhere.'
- David Guzik (Pastor of Calvary Chapel Santa Barbara)
'In a day when prophecy meets reality,'Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord'(Amos 8:11), and I long to hear a message on Ruin, Redemption, Repentance, and Regeneration all I have to do is press the SermonIndex icon on my IPhone to hear those great doctrines resonate once again through the fiery lips of a Duncan Campbell or Rolfe Barnard. Thank you for the ministry to ministers and the blessing that SermonIndex is to the Church.'
- E.A. Johnston (Author of George Whitefield: A Definitive Biography)
'There is certainly no shortage of sermons in the world today. It seems, however, that there is a shortage of sermons like those found on Sermon Index, sermons from the past and present that challenge us to follow Jesus as He deserves to be followed. I am grateful that someone has devoted himself to the task of providing a catalog of messages that pierce our hearts and enlighten our minds with divine truth that has not been watered down. It is those kinds of messages that help make disciples and build Christ's church. The truths that powered past revivals are the same truths that will power present revivals.'
- David Servant (Founder of Heaven's Family)
'SermonIndex.net freely makes available some of the most valuable resources our students will ever find. Each week we receive reports from Ecclesia students expressing the many ways teachings of people like T. Austin Sparks are impacting their lives. These voices from the past (and present) are helping to change lives as the gospel message is passed on undiluted through this tremendous storehouse of truth!'
- Paul Snyder (Director of Ecclesia College Online)
'Sermon index has become my 'goto' site for kindling the hearth of my heart to a flame. Sermon index is a non commercialized site that provides heart rending sermons of a bygone era, with messages that are desperately needed for my heart and the body of Christ today.'
- Kevin J Turner (President of Strategic World Impact)
'We are in desperate need of revival in our time and Sermonindex is being used by God to awaking the church to this need. Thank you for being willing to be obedient to the vision from Heaven' in continuing with this vital ministry.'
- Clayton Dougan (Preacher/Evangelist, Evangelism International).
'It has been my privilege to know the founder of this website for the past five years and to be involved with him in the revival conferences, sponsored by Sermonindex.net. Many a glad hour we have spent together talking about the Lord and fellowshipping in His goodness. Not only have I witnessed anointing on the webpage but also an anointing on the founder himself. My prayer is that he will stay humbly at the foot of the cross and might know the exceeding great things I believe God has planned for him.'
- Gareth Evans (Pastor/Revivalist, Gareth Evans Ministries).
'I have known the founder of SermonIndex for five years now as a man of God with a very humble and meek spirit. Sermon Index is the outgrowth of his walk with God and has been a powerful tool for the Holy Spirit to use in ministering to the body of Christ world wide.'
- Don Courville (Pastor, Marantha Baptist Church).
'For years SermonIndex has provided a resource to the Body of Christ of inestimable value, never asking anything for himself other than enough to scrape by in the barest living conditions. I for one plan on doing my best to respond to the ongoing needs of this important work.'
- Steve Gallagher (Founder of Pure Life Ministries).
'Sermon Index have been both inspirational and irrigational to me over the many, many years since I was first introduced. Not only has Sermon Index been an oasis of pure water to me personally, it has also become a well used resource by our local church members. The vault of godly sermons and literature is overwhelmingly useful and powerful to every hungry hearted child of God. When my own personal embers begin to wane, Sermon Index becomes the fan that bellows the embers piping hot once again. I am thankful and indebted to the imperative work of Sermon Index.'
- Derek L. Melton (Sr. Pastor, Pryor Creek Community Church).

- Randy Jones (Pastor Of Christ Our Lord Church)
'Gordon started exploring old messages and old books after being left disatisfied by some contemporary preaching. Stirred by his discoveries, Gordon designed a web site committed to the preservation and propogation of classical preaching in its audio form for this generation and the next.'
- Karen Stiller (Faith Today Canadian Magazine, Full Magazine interview)
