Sermons about Living By Faith
Northwest Baptist is a very unique church! Other churches may seem similar at first glance, but in many ways they are not. What makes Northwest unique from other churches? What do we cherish and value? And what does that mean for your life? In this series, Pastor Ben Brammer is preaching from Scripture passages that each of Northwest's 8 Core Values are derived from. These Scriptures will not only bring to light the core values of our church, but will encourage you to think through those things that hold value in your own life.
The just shall live by faith.
