Does the “old covenant” (Old Testament) have anything to say about our “new covenant” (New Testament) Christian worship? Pr. Rich Futrell takes us on a journey through worship in the Garden of Eden, in the wilderness tabernacle, in Solomon’s temple, and in the synagogue of Jesus’ day. He shows us that, yes, new covenant worship flows out of and fulfills the old covenant worship.
Does it matter if your church uses an old hymn board or a giant projection screen to convey service information? Does the medium send a message, even an unintended one? Pr.

Matt Richard discusses how just a little bit of false doctrine can be as poisonous as a little bit of Liquid Drano in a batch of cookies.
