The Excelsior Springs Church

The Excelsior Springs Church is a Historic, Independent, Unincorporated, Non-501c3, KJV-only, Sovereign Grace Baptist Church which meets in Excelsior Springs, Missouri near Kansas City. We believe in the divine inspiration and preservation of the Bible in the King James Version (Authorized Version of 1611), which is the only basis of our faith and practice. We believe in the sovereign electing grace of God which alone saves sinners eternally and that a man's faith in Jesus Christ is the evidence, not the cause, of eternal life. We believe that once a man believes the gospel and repents of his sins, he ought to be baptized by immersion in water which adds him to the local church. We believe that the local church was instituted by God for the edifying and improvement of the faith of God's children and is where they should worship Him in spirit and in truth and fellowship with Christians of like-faith.

My Interview on the PlannedIllusion Show: Trust Not Man

I was interviewed for a fourth time by Jimuphy Masters on the PlannedIllusion Show.

From the episode description:

“Pastor Chad Wagner joins the show for an inspiring, meaning of life episode. Pastor Chad from Excelsior Springs church unpacks the state of our society post Pandemic and searches deep into scripture to find out what God has to say about how we navigate the tough times ahead. This was a great opportunity to unpack the new-age misconceptions about the Holy Bible, Christ, our Creator God and a series of typical questions which led to the most interesting theological discussion yet on PLannedilLusion. This is the episode you will replay over and over again – Enjoy”
