Studies in Romans #3: A Final Thought

A final thought on our third study in Romans 1:16 yesterday morning (June 28, 2015) entitled, “I Am Not Ashamed.” Isn’t the providence of God so amazing? Unbeknownst to any of us this past week, the U.S. Supreme Court would rule that same-sex marriage is legal in all fifty states and the next text in our series through Romans would be 1:16 on Paul’s being unashamed of the gospel; and coming soon […]

A Letter from Rev. Hyde on Weekly Devotions

Dear brothers and sisters, I whole-heartedly believe that Christians not only must, but get to participate in the privilege of reading the Word of God. Amen?
