    Too often, Christians can become so busy in their lives that they choke the word of God out of it. Too many of us are the thorny soil at times. This sermon helps us remember what our priorities should be.

Is that growth visible to others? Am I more holy this month or year than I was last year? These are all important questions we ...read more

A complete lack of fruitfulness from all, except one. Among the people in the church, there is no fruit, except in a small group of ...read more
