Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
Contending for the Faith Publications is meant to be a help to all Christians workers. Pastors and teachers alike will benefit from the books in their life and ministry. Pastor Nikoley was greatly used to make an impact on the State of California, in the nation; as well as on Religious Freedom. The church experienced a great victory over State issues such as taxation and licensure. In 1983 Pomerado Road Baptist Church among some sixty-five California churches passed a bill in the California State Legislature to free the churches of this burden. Under the leadership of Dr. David Gibbs Jr. of CLA and the California Council for Religious Freedom, under the leadership of the late Dr. Harry Jackson the legislation to free the churches of this intrusion was passed on June 23, 1983. Within a week Pomerado Road Baptist Church would have been confiscated and sold by the state had the bill not been signed by then Governor Deukmejian. It is for this reason that we had chosen Contending for the Faith as the name for the publication ministry.
One of the resources of Contending for the Faith Publications includes the recently published devotional, “My Daily Walk,” volume I, and My Daily Walk, volume II, Volume III, and just completed Volume IV, all of which are now available through Contending for the Faith Publications.
My Daily Walk, Volume I, originally published by Xulon Pressis a day–by-day devotional for the entire year that can be started at any time. Dr. Nikoley and his staff are very pleased with the response of this book and believe it has been a great spiritual aid to Christians seeking to have a closer walk with God. It is available in many bookstores and websites, including Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, etc. Now all four are available in spiral bound from Contending For The Faith Publications.
My Daily Walk is a devotional for teenagers and adults and is meant to inspire personal devotions leading to a closer, more intimate walk with God. This devotional presents a thought or a verse to meditate upon throughout the day. It gives the added benefit of an area in which to put those meditations into writing, as well as assignments to perform to put them into action. My Daily Walk is published in the hope that it would lead to a change in the life of the reader.
One reader said, “I started reading My Daily Walk and could not put it down.” Another said, “I look forward to reading from My Daily Walk everyday, because it is so good to have a devotional with meat from the King James Bible.”
As Dr. Mark Rasmussen put it, “This devotional is easy to read, convicting, challenging, and helpful. If you would like to use a devotional as a tool or guide I implore you to give this a long look. Although a devotional is obviously meant to be used on a daily basis I found that it was almost impossible to put “My Daily Walk” down. I have already referred this book to others. This devotional has ‘meat’ and not just fluff. It will challenge and bless.”
David C. Gibbs III, of National Center for Life and Liberty (NCLL) and author of “Fighting for Dear Life” said, “I am sure My Daily Walk will help many Christians of all ages to develop a closer personal walk with God.”
