Join Steve as he teaches from 1 Timothy 6:6-10 about money, grace and the obsession with God’s love that will fill your life with contentment and freedom.

By: Steve Brown on Wednesday April 22, 2015


The institution of the church has always held within it scoundrels, egomaniacs, dishonest leaders and people who didn’t give a rip about real needs.

Some Christians believe that when they come to know Christ, that is all there is to it. We have all heard and maybe even said ourselves, “My religion is something between God and me. It is no one’s business but mine!” If you feel this way, then you’re in for a surprise.
