Two Views – Romans 10

We live in a world where we admire the things that are better, bigger, faster. There is often an unspoken expectation to not have weaknesses but to always be strong and capable. But the reality is we all have weaknesses. We all fall short in one way or another. If we are excelling in one […]

Animation 12: Pharisees – Mr. Nice Guy?

Posted: 09 Jul, 2017 | Author: Dove Cranson

Freedom

Posted: 03 Jul, 2016 | Author: Jon Kronmiller

“For freedom Christ has set us free.” “There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” These scriptures are real, but are they a part of your own Christian experience?
