Ancient Words Ever True

Romans 15:4 states, “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope”. In an era when Biblical literacy continues to falter, especially with the Old Testament, it’s time to ignite a renewed passion for the rich content and purpose of the Old Testament. These profound Holy Spirit inspired Ancient Words are full of the Gospel and hope. 

Our key note speaker spoke on, “Using the Old Testament in our Lives Today”. Sessions included, Why the OT is important today and lessons on the use of OT narratives, the Psalms and Wisdom Literature.   Listen to
