Mike Westhuyzen: The Power of the Word

by

We are living in a time of rapid social and cultural change as we witness the turning of society away from long held Christian values.

Alan Stanley: Do you get love?

by

We can be the most on point people when it comes to the practices of our faith, bible reading, church attendance, ministry involvement, and yet still completely miss the point of what following Jesus is all about.  Alan Stanley from BST takes us through how we can be so blind to the primary call of […]
