Good Questions Provoke Curiosity

Posted by Jennifer Holz on

Posted by John Goodale on

To this day, I can still remember where I was and what I was doing when a woman I was dating at the time asked me the question: “Where do you see this relationship heading?” (I must have answered it OK, because she’s been married to me for 28 years!) Questions can lead to...

Baptizer

Posted by Tim McConnell on

“And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Acts 2:21). I would say this is the key verse in Acts 2, and the key verse of Peter’s sermon. If there is one verse to commit to memory from Acts 2, I’d say it’s this one. What does it mean to be...
