Today’s church is facing many challenges in regard to sin within the church walls. How do Pastors/Elders teach holy living in a culture that rejects what the Bible teaches? What is the best way to restore a brother/sister to godly living? Wednesday we will talk about these timely questions with Moody Bible Institute Professor John Koessler, who has insight into why our faith may not be impacting how we live.
The Mountains are Calling
There are many mountain top experiences recorded throughout God’s Word. Wednesday we visit with Pastor Jarrett Stephens about those encounters and what we can learn from those that we can apply to our walk of faith today.
