The Shield of Faith15/12/2019 Duração: 35min
Being a Christian is hard. It is going to require some very specific tools. Where do they come from? How do we use them? The apostle Paul recognized the need and, while being imprisoned, gave us clear instruction on what we need to do to be successful in the world we are placed.

Holiness and Grace15/11/2017 Duração: 40min
The expectations of Biblical Holiness are great. And, if a person is not careful, they can become overwhelming. We can become so overwhelmed that we look for an alternative or a way out.
