The Winning Edge

The purpose of “The Winning Edge” is to impact your life with the passionate preaching of God’s Word!


There are many alternatives to Christian television programming.  Why “The Winning Edge?”  Our desire is to provide inspiration with strong biblical content.  Most of the messages you will hear from Dr. Mercer are “expositional” messages — that is when a section or passage of the Bible is explained in detail with a strong practical application.  We believe there is power in the Word of God.  If we get God’s Word in our heart, it will guide us to all truth, give us direction, help us through difficult times, and most of all, help us to know God.

Our passion is to build faith in those who do not know Christ, that they would come to realize their condition before God, humble themselves and receive His free gift of salvation.

We also desire to see Christian believers grow deeper in their faith and become more passionate followers of the Lord.

As you watch these messages on television or this website, our prayer is that God will touch your heart and draw you close to Him.
