What is faith? And what does it do in a person’s life? Pastor Colin talks about how faith changes a person’s life.
The Anatomy of Faith
Biblical faith is more than using your head. It involves your ears, your hands, your mouth, your voice, and your knees—all of you. Using the analogy of the human body, you’ll discover not only what faith is, but what faith does. This very practical look at Christian faith is simple enough for a child to grasp but challenging enough to stretch the most seasoned Christian. You won’t get very far in this series before you find yourself down on your knees asking God to increase your faith!
