Fall 2014 Sermon Series at BCBC


Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me — put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:9)

We all know people who develop their skills through practice. Musicians, athletes, students, dancers and actors all know the importance of repeating an activity over and over again to improve. But what about the Christian life? What learned skills help us grow in our faith? Even though the Christian life is a supernatural life, there are “practices” we can do that help us! Join us this summer at Bent Creek Baptist as we learn how to practice! Here are some of the topics we will cover.
