  • Scripture and experience attest: Christianity does work

    The question of an unbelieving world is, “Does Christianity work?” When the chips are down and when the pressure mounts will Christianity stand the test?  Does faith in God make a difference?

    Scripture and experience says – Yes! Paul saw Christianity at work in his second imprisonment and he reflects back on these experiences where he saw how God helped him (2 Timothy 4:16-18). The Lord stood with him and strengthened him.  God can help us in the same ways he helped Paul.
