Perfecting Power [Six MP3 w/Sermon Notes]

Power and Authority: Once we know what God has given us through the Messiah, we will never again live in fear nor see our limitations and lack of resources as a hindrance to ministering to the needs of people.

NOTE: This study DOES NOT support the classical view of Dominion, Kingdom Now, Reconstructionist, or post-millennial theologies where the Church replaces Israel in Biblical prophecy.
