The purpose of the Foundations of Faith study guide is to provide a useful tool to help us carry out the Great Commission given by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20. It is provided with the humble understanding that it serves as one of many tools for the disciple of Jesus to use in helping others come to Christ. Please feel free to use other materials you are comfortable with as well. We hope Foundations of Faith offers a valuable guide to reconcile the lost while also laying the foundation to mature and mobilize new disciples for Jesus.Read More...
Our women’s devotional centered around the Biblical character, Rahab, who chose the things of God rather than the things of this world. We are enticed every day with worldly thoughts, attitudes, and way of life.

That strength allowed her to believe in a better future far beyond the walls of Jericho. God blessed her with dignity as she lived out her years among God’s people and became the grandmother(many generations removed) of Jesus Christ.
Let us be inspired by Rahab to believe in a better future beyond this life and become a woman of strength.Read More...
