Sermons on Faith

Amazing Our World

ACTS 5:12-16 Biblical miracles will amaze our world (v.12). What was it about the apostolic signs and wonders that amazed the people?

The Kingdom of God Is in You

LUKE 17:21 The entire message of Jesus was about the coming of the Kingdom (Mark 1:15). Why is the message of redemption incomplete without the concept of kingdom?
