My Venture into Blogging

Welcome to Mike Vlach's blog site! For the last ten years I have managed a website called This website will continue in earnest, but I believe the time has come for me to venture into a slightly more informal and interactive evironment. So here I am. If you are reading this blog because of please know that I will continue posting articles and information on that website along with this blog.

Just in case you don't know who I am, my name is Mike Vlach. I live in Castaic, California, which is in Los Angeles County near Santa Clarita. I am blessed to have Holly Vlach as my beautiful wife and I have four great kids.

In addition to running, I am Associate Professor of Theology at The Master's Seminary in Sun Valley, CA. Every year, I teach two required theology courses, an apologetics course, and various electives in the areas of church history, eschatology, and Dispensationalism. My favorite areas of theology to study are kingdom, hermeneutics, people of God, law of God, NT use of the OT, and other topics that touch on areas of continuity and discontinuity in the testaments. I align myself closely with many areas of Reformed Theology and consider myself a dispensationalist.

I hope to be blogging on various issues including promoting the Christian worldview and key areas of Christian theology. I also love politics, current events and college football (especially the Nebraska Cornhuskers). If you have anything to add, I'd be glad to hear from you.


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere, Dr. Vlach!

  7. Showing my dispensational colors. Included Michael Vlach and Rick Holland in my blogroll.

  8. Hi, Mike. Welcome to the blog-o-sphere.

    I hope to read through all your posts, but for now I have a quick question right off the bat.

    Does dispensational theology teach that the Rapture is the Second Coming of Christ?

    The reason I ask is because I recently heard an amillennialist pastor say that in an attempt to give an overview of the dispensational perspective.

    My personal beliefs line up with much of dispensational thinking, however, I disagree with that position and wondered if he simply misunderstood.

    Thanks and I look forward to reading your posts.
