We feel guilty. We are aware of our inadequacy. We know how we fall short. But for some reason we spiritualize that. You'd think the hight of spirituallity is feeling guilty. Your best sermons are when you leave feeling really bad about yourself. There is nothing spiritual about being guilty. Guilt is a step in a process towards, freedom, forgiveness, hope, restoration.
Facing Goliath offers help to every man who wants to overcome his giants and experience a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. Addressing topics like intellectual doubt, fear, pride and selfishness men will find practical steps to discovering the answers to questions, of faith, salvation and spiritual growth. This discipleship game plan will help men learn Christian essentials in a way that appeals to those who are seeking what it means to be a follower of Jesus and those who have already found Jesus and wanting to grow.
The mission of Truth that Changes Lives is to maximize the use of creative media for the purpose of preaching the gospel and teaching the Word of God. Our vision is to see believers transformed to become multiplying disciples and lost people calling on the name of Jesus and being saved. Our prayer is that every day someone, somewhere around the world, hears the gospel, believes in Jesus and is saved.
