Let me tell you, folks…I'm really pumped up and excited about what God is doing with us here at DBC…If you haven't guessed already, I'm excited about

we didn't decide to do a study on 'SUFFERING.'
Moving on….Anyway…Faith is something all of us should want to see growing
in our lives, because God tells us in Hebrews 11 that without Faith ...
