20. Watch out For Our Next Sermon Series On The Book Of Joshua (Starting 1 August 2010) Most Christians believe that God is all-powerful and that He can free us from slavery to sin and emotional distress. If that is true, then why do we so often live in inferiority and in fear of defeat? Did God promise us too much? We can learn from the life of Joshua about seeing the promises of God fulfilled. Joshua focused on God, not circumstances, and was not paralyzed by the fear of enemies who looked on him as a grasshopper. So come and join us in this series of 12 sermons preached by our three pastors starting 1 August 2010 where we will learn the following:> > > > > > Identify the pitfalls of spiritual growth Capture territory from Satan Use the captured territory for the glory of God Take a giant step toward spiritual maturity Discover that God is all-powerful and worthy of our trust Conquer our fear of failure and defeat.
