This week's Sermon: "Because God Loves" (Genesis 17, 32, Deuteronomy 7)
Link to last week's sermon

Figuring out what we are really trusting in as we live our lives can be so difficult. “We have changed…from a condition where most people lived ‘naïvely’ in a Christian outlook…to one in which almost no one is capable of this.” (Charles Taylor) This is not an altogether bad thing. We need to know what we believe and why we believe it if we are going to truly follow Jesus and know how to live. No matter what your background is. No matter how much or how little you know about the Bible. This is a beautiful and amazing story of God’s love for humanity. The more deeply we consider this story and believe in it, the more it will transform our lives.
 

Main Idea: We have hope because God loves.
