There can be no more compelling reason to teach and preach the word than what we read in Romans 10:17, "So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ." Again, we read in James 1:18, "Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures." The word of God is what the Holy Spirit of God uses to breathe spiritual life into the soul of the hearer (cf. Ezekiel 37:1-14). This is why we are committed to proclaiming the word of life. In addtion to the sermons page, the resources on this section of our website emphasize spiritual growth.
