About Homiletics Online

Homiletics has been serving churches for over 25 years with fresh Sermon Preparation, Inspiration, Commentary and Worship Resources.  

We began in the late 80's as the inspiration of a United Methodist minister who believed that having engaging sermon ideas to help kick-start the weekly sermon writing process was a real need. We continue to do just that each week.

Our Editorial Basis

Having our roots with a United Methodist minister, our material falls squarely within the Wesleyan, not Reformed, tradition. But it is more helpful to say that -- going past the Reformation -- we stand squarely in the historic tradition of the church as expressed in the Nicene/Chalcedonian Creed.
