Matthew 6: Consider the lilies of the field! Jesus continues the Sermon on the Mount, discussing the importance of doing our service and worship “in secret,” laying up treasures in heaven instead of the earth, and the proper form of prayer. Jesus also teaches us to forgive others and to seek FIRST the kingdom of God. Al Doan joins us.
John 3, 4 – Jesus teaches Nicodemus that we must be born of water and the Spirit to enter the kingdom of God. Why? Why does baptism matter? Why do ordinances matter?

Al Doan is with us for the first time in a long time.
