As believers hold fast to the truths of His Word, we can have confidence in His sovereign power to keep us safe for eternity.

False Teachers Among You, Part Two

Believers today must be on guard against error, choosing God’s ways over false promises of “knowledge” that is darkness and “freedom” that is slavery.
