Gospel Groups

As we grow in the gospel, we must realize our need for one another in this process.  As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another (Prov. 27:17).  We need to spur one another on to love and good deeds (Heb. 10:24-25). We must encourage one another to grow in the gospel continually.  But what does that really look like? As believers, we talk about the gospel often, but do we really know what it is and why we need…

How to Share Your Testimony

People can resort to arguments, but they can’t argue with results. In our efforts to grow in the gospel, we must learn how to share our testimony of how we came to faith in Christ.  There are many arguments out there regarding the validity of the Bible or the skepticism concerning a God you cannot see, but most people respect personal stories.  We live in a time when people are very defensive regarding what they believe, but a good majority…
