Current Series: Faith That Won't Fail

Faith is like a roller-coaster safely bar: don’t want faith to fail us! We want faith through which we really, truly take hold of the promises of God. We want faith that leads us to experience peace and joy beyond our circumstances. We want faith in which we find and strength and wisdom greater than we possess. We want a faith that will stay strong until God gathers us to heaven or comes back to earth. We want a faith that won’t fail.
