Job Beresford came to know the Lord in 1971. In 1976 he responded to a call into full time itinerant teaching and pastoral ministry, and has pioneered biblical house church life and experience in England throughout that time. He is a recognized elder in the Chigwell Christian Fellowship, a biblically based church he helped to establish in Essex in the mid 1980's. He offers a comprehensive nearly 300 strong catalogue of Bible teaching tapes which cover just about every biblical subject under the sun, and has always had a burden to make the ‘whole counsel of God’ available to any who want it.
In recent years he has traveled extensively in America as well helping to both establish and nurture biblical churches. He has been married to Belinda for 23 years and they are the proud parents of Bethany, aged 8. Belinda and Bethany travel with him whenever he has to be away from home for more than a few of days (he's never very happy without them), and together they seek to model biblical family life as the absolute fundamental foundation of church life.
Beresford has never been salaried in his ministry and has always lived entirely by faith, only making his needs known only to the Lord in prayer. As such he has proven over a period of three decades the simple biblical principle that the Lord’s work, done the Lord’s way, will always receive His provision.
These videos demonstrate how much Christian belief and practice, especially in regards to church life, structure and government (or ecclesiology, as the theologians like to call it), is not actually based on the Bible at all, but rather on traditions handed down through the ages which originated from wrong teaching given by the leaders of the early church in the years following the death of the original Apostles.
Controversial subjects are thereby here tackled head on, but we believe it to be vitally important that it be done. Although these studies contain a fair bit of technical and historical material, along with some conclusions that may cause some offence, Beresford passes it all on in his usual humorous, interesting and easy to follow way.

Biblical Church - A Challenge to Unscriptural Traditions and Practice
Written by Beresford Job
Every once in a while a book comes along which not only challenges the foundations of accepted Christian understanding, it actually tears them up and replaces them with completely new ones. This is one such book.
If you have assumed that you have an understanding of the New Testament teaching on church life and practice then this book will provoke you to reconsider your viewpoint on every level.
Combining meticulously researched scholarship and exegesis with over thirty years of practical experience pioneering New Testament church life and practice, the author takes the reader on a journey of discovery to regain possibly the most important lost biblical truths and understandings since the time of the Reformers.
“Biblical Church: A challenge to unscriptural traditions and practice” will change your thinking forever and completely revolutionize your understanding of one of the most fundamental and important aspects of the teaching of scripture.
