  • The Lord Who Heals You Series

    Contributed by Brad Beaman on May 19, 2022

    God heals. He is Jehovah-Rapha. That is the name that God revealed in this passage, the Lord our healer. We see the miracle in the desert where bitter water becomes sweet. Our need is to be healed from spiritual sickness of sin.

    Have you ever heard someone say something like this? I faced a situation in my life where all seemed hopeless from a medical standpoint.

  • Last Second Salvation Series

    Contributed by Brian Bill on Apr 2, 2003
    based on 24 ratings

    “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” The story of the thief receiving salvation is the most amazing example of saving faith in the entire Bible. It’s never too late to turn to Christ and even the worst of sinners can be saved at

    Last-second Salvation Last Sunday I mentioned that it’s much easier to preach about forgiveness than it is to practice it. This was made very clear to me right after the second service when I was talking to a 9-year-old boy. He had a scratch on his forehead and I asked him if he had gotten into more

    The Christian faith is founded on the confession that Jesus has Risen. If the Tomb that has been making all the news lately is that of Jesus, what impact does it have on the Christian Faith? Can we still believe?
