Bible-Based Christian Teaching

Spiritual Gold is the Bible-based teaching ministry of Dr. Richard L. Strauss. He was a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and former pastor of a non-denominational Christian church in San Diego County: Emmanuel Faith Community Church. Over 1500 sermon messages are available here for free--expository studies through many books of the Old Testament and New Testament, and topical studies addressing many popular subjects and pressing issues of our day.

"Thank you for your interest in Spiritual Gold. My desire and hope is that this will reach into our world with the positive message that God is alive and has the answers for the problems facing us today. My husband, Richard, takes the Scriptures and breaks them down so that we can understand and receive practical advice as we live one day at a time." --Mary Strauss
