Basis Of Our Confidence

Hebrews 9:16-10:18 The human being needs hope. When all hope is removed we are defeated. The author of the book of Hebrews knew that and he gives his readers hope — not a false hope, not a maybe wish, but a sure confidence. What can that confidence be and what is it based on? Join […]

Why Is An Understanding Of Grace So Important?
