David O'Steen David O'Steen Instructor

David O'Steen has been the pastor of Hope Bible Church in Jackson, Georgia since 2005. Pastor O’Steen believes that the King James Bible is the inspired and preserved word of God (2 Tim. 3:16) and that rightly dividing (2 Tim. 2:15) is the key to understanding the Bible. When he's not teaching and preaching at his home church, Pastor O'Steen spends time preaching at Bible conferences and helping others learn to rightly divide the word of truth.
