Living a Confident Life (2 Peter 1:12-21) [Podcast]

So many messages are out there. Which one should I allow first place in my life?

In this fourth message from the series “The Lighthouse: Warnings from Second Peter to an Endangered Church,” Dr. David Rhoades challenges us to consider the merits of allowing the message of the Bible to have prominence in our minds and hearts.
