Being Salt: Faithful Living

Being Salt: Faithful Proclaiming
Luke 14:34-35 • October 30, 2016 • Andy Neely
How can Christians engage the world when our convictions are not always welcome at the table? In our culture today, many of us are guilty of seeking to 'live out' our Christian convictions while remaining quiet about our faith. On the other hand, some of us find ourselves on the opposite end. We can be very vocal about our faith but not show the practical love and compassion of Jesus to others in need. Listen now as Pastor Andy shares how we can pursue faithfulness through loving action and Gospel words from Jesus' teaching in Matthew 5 on being salt and light.
