In Mark 11:22-24 Jesus instructs the disciples on the issue of praying in faith; He says, "Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever more

  • Faith, Part 2 Series

    Contributed by Kevin Johnson on Jun 4, 2019

    In this teaching, we look at what faith IS and what it is NOT.

    Last week we started a new teaching series we entitled, “Faith: the currency of Heaven”.
