The Word of the Cross”

Mar 17, 2024   Elisha Freeman — n a few weeks, most of the Christian world will focus in on and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

Jesus: The Eternal One

Jan 21, 2024  Elisha Freeman — Who is Jesus? A question that had to be answered in Jesus’ day and needs to be answered in our day.

This morning we are going back to one of these writers and see why these claims were made and how they help us answer our question.

Living the Word: Confidence, Sin, & Forgiveness

Sept 17, 2023 Elisha Freeman — Many of us are Christians. In and through faith, we repented of our sin and were baptized to have that sin washed away.

The Apostle John will remind us and encourage us that even when we sin, our Heavenly Father created and maintains the opportunity to be forgiven.
