Quality Speech Materials = God honoring, KJV materials you can trust.
Let us tell you a little about Quality Speech materials and how it started.
Gary and Wendy Collins traveled in full-time evangelism for over 30 years. Their program was called Total Church Evangelism. They held evangelistic meetings using Gospel illusions, Swiss cowbells, ventriloquism, readings and dramatic sermons. Their daughter grew up on the road and added to the program from the time she was 5 years old when she began playing "Jesus Loves Me" on the bells. She also assisted her mom and dad with the illusions and played a folk harp.
When the Collins conducted meetings in churches with Christian schools, Wendy often conducted speech seminars and helped students with speech techniques. Seeing the need for Christian based Speech materials prompted her to write several Speech text books for Christian schools. That was the beginning of Quality Speech Materials.
As the Collins continued traveling in evangelism, many pastors would mention to them the need for good fundamental VBS materials. They would lament about the lack of materials they could trust and of the high cost of materials. This prompted the Collins to begin publishing VBS and Children's Church programs that were trust-worthy, Bible-based, and affordable.
Shortly after the Collins began to write these programs the Lord changed the focus of their ministry from one of traveling to that of producing materials for churches and schools. They feel that the Lord allowed them to learn so many valuable lessons while on the road and they feel that they should pass it on to others.
On a more personal note, Gary and Wendy are active members of Victory Baptist Church in Simpsonville, SC. They are actively involved in teaching Sunday School, Children's Church and direct the VBS. They are both graduates of Bob Jones University. Gary's major was Bible and Wendy's major was Interpretative Speech. They are conservative and fundamental Bible believers.
We believe in the authority of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments. That it was physically written by Spirit-controlled men. That every word is inspired, infallible and inerrant in all matters.
We believe there is only one living and true God. He is the Maker and supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth. In the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection and executing distinct but harmonious offices.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine person, equal with God the Father and God the Son; He was active in the creation; He restrains the evil one until God's purpose is fulfilled; He convicts of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; He bears witness to the truth of the gospel; He is the Agent in the new birth; He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies and helps the believer.
We believe in the reality of Satan; he was created by God as an angel but through pride and rebellion became the enemy of God; he became ruler of the powers of darkness and is destined to the eternal judgment in the literal lake of fire called Hell.
We believe the Biblical account of the creation of the physical universe, angels, and man; this account is neither allegory nor myth, but a literal, historical creative act of God without any evolutionary process; man was created by a direct act of God; and all men are descended from Adam and Eve.
THE FALL OF MAN
We believe man was created in innocence, in the image and likeness of God, but by voluntary transgression Adam fell from his sinless state, and all men sinned in him, in consequence of which all men are totally depraved, are partakers of Adam's fallen nature, and are sinners by nature and are under just condemnation without defense or excuse.
THE VIRGIN BIRTH
We believe that Jesus was begotten of the Holy Spirit in a miraculous manner, born of Mary, a virgin, as no other man was ever born or can be born of woman, and that He is both the Son of God and God, the Son.
We believe that salvation of sinners is provided by grace through Jesus Christ, Who voluntarily took upon Himself our nature, yet without sin, shed His blood in His death, thus fully satisfying the just demands of a holy and righteous God; His sacrifice was a voluntary substitution of Himself in the sinner's place, the Just dying for the unjust, Christ the Lord bearing our sins in His own body on the tree; having risen from the dead He is now in Heaven, and He is in every way qualified to be a suitable, a compassionate and an all-sufficient Savior. We believe faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only condition of salvation. Repentance is a change of mind and purpose toward God prompted by the Holy Spirit and is an integral part of saving faith.
RESURRECTION AND PRIESTHOOD OF CHRIST
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ and in His ascension into Heaven where He now sits at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest interceding for us.
GRACE AND THE NEW BIRTH
We believe in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; it is instantaneous and not a process; in the new birth the one dead in trespasses and sins is made a partaker of the divine nature and receives eternal life, the free gift of God; the new creation is brought about by God, through the power of the Holy Spirit in connection with divine truth, so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the gospel; its evidence appears in the fruits of repentance, faith and newness of life.
We believe justification is that judicial act of God whereby He declares the believer righteous on the basis of the imputed righteousness of Christ; it is bestowed, not in
consideration of any work of righteousness which we have done, but solely through faith in the Redeemer's shed blood.
We believe sanctification is the divine setting apart of the believer unto God accomplished in a threefold manner; first, an eternal act of God, based on redemption in Christ, establishing the believer in a position of holiness at the moment he trusts the Savior; second, a continuing process in the saint as the Holy Spirit applies the Word of God to the life; third, the final accomplishment of this process at the Lord's return.
RAPTURE AND SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
We believe in the premillennial return of Christ, an event which can occur at any moment, and that at that moment the dead in Christ shall be raised in glorified bodies, and the living in Christ shall be given glorified bodies without tasting death, and all shall be caught up to meet the Lord in the air before the seven years of the Tribulation. We believe that the Tribulation which follows the Rapture of the Church, will be culminated by the revelation of Christ in power and great glory to sit upon the throne of David and to establish the millennial kingdom.
THE RIGHTEOUS AND THE WICKED
We believe only those who are justified by faith in Jesus Christ and sanctified by the Spirit of our God are truly righteous in His esteem; while all who continue in impenitence and unbelief are in His sight wicked and under the curse; and this distinction holds among men both in and after death, in the everlasting joy of the saved and the everlasting conscious suffering of the lost in Hell.
