Mr Begg (pictured above) is the voice behind the Truth for Life Christian radio preaching and teaching ministry that broadcasts his sermons daily to stations across the United States.

He is a strong advocate of historic Protestant Evangelical theology; emphasising his belief in the importance of believing the Bible to be the completely authoritative Word of God, and the importance of using the mind to know the Bible and knowing God through repentance and faith in Jesus.

After graduating from the London School of Theology in 1975 he served eight years in Scotland at Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh and Hamilton Baptist Church in Lanarkshire. Mr Begg has been pastor at Parkside Church since 1983.

He is a Council member of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals. He was educated at Trent University and Westminster Seminary.
