Today we take a look at how a lifestyle of faith prepares us for challenges small and great. God is the king of all beast, whether they be fearsome ferocious cats or the day-to-day challenges of life.

Romans 5 is one of the least discussed chapters in the New Testament, maybe because it's so misunderstood. Today Jeff and Andrew explore how the Gospel frees us from the try harder, pray better, do more mentality. We can breathe a sigh of relief because the power of the Son is in the palm of our hands.

April 5, 2019
