Pastor Martin delivered these lectures to Trinity Ministerial Academy students a number of times over a period of 20 years. The messages on this page are from the 1980's. Since however he was always rethinking, reworking, adding/subtracting, and fine-tuning the materials each time they were presented, some alternate lectures from other years have been posted below, as they were providentially available. It is recommended that these not be used as substitutes however —but as supplements—because although the titles may be the same, the place where he began/left off in one year's lecture does not always coincide with where he began/left off in a different year, and thus some vital points could be missed. Also, some lectures eventually grew from one class into two classes — but both alternates were not available. Thus, if you listen only to an alternate you could be missing half of that topic's material. ("General Introduction" is an example: this is a single message that eventually grew into two – but only the "Part 2" alternate was available.)

(An explanitory note about Unit One's messages changing from number 1 to number 84: the Biblical Call section  [84—94]  was not a part of the original curriculum — this was introduced in later years and was inserted by Pastor Martin at this location. The lectures below are laid out and numbered exactly as they are found in the Trinity Pulpit Catalog.)
