The Ardent Archives

Exploring the writings of church history in order to edify and equip the saints in their ongoing discipleship.

What is The Ardent Archives?

The Ardent Archives is a ministry of North Clay Baptist Church. Our goal is to provide the members of North Clay with easy access to the writings of church history.

It's no secret that most people today don't take the time to read, and certainly don't take the time to read from history. Sadly, this trend has made its way into the evangelical church, rendering us effectively ignorant of God's work throughout the history of the church. 

In order to combat this, The Ardent Archives seeks to build a repository of solid, biblical resources that are easily accessible and surprisingly entertaining. Using the podcast platform, we are working to produce audiobooks of written works in the public domain. Not only do we provide readings of these historical books that are enjoyable to listen to, but we also provide discussions that will aid the listener in understanding and learning from these writings. As a listener, you can look forward to a new series (including readings and discussions) from The Ardent Archives every six months.
