Sermons on Matthew

The Great Omission

Tonight Scott Corwin guided us with his message of the “Great Omission”. In Matthew 29:19 we learn of the importance of not just accepting Christ, but to embrace the idea of being a Disciple of Christ. Using an analogy of how we grow from infants to children to adults to parents, so grows our faith from acceptance to learning to guiding. Thank you Scott!
