"Getting Real" draws from the Epistle of James. Pastor Craig Gilbert helped us look into what it looks like to be REAL with all people. Read James 2:14-26 in preparation.
"Inaction has never founded empires, established principles, or changed the world’s heart. The great doers in history have always been people of faith.”
- B.C. Forbes
Get real with your faith and show it, because…
1. Our faith is genuine.
2. We love God and people.
3. Faith and works are inseparable.
4. Faith produces works.
