Faith That Works

Teaching Series: New Year 2014

Being a Christian is not simply believing certain things.  It's about living with Jesus. It's about living for Jesus. Not a set of beliefs, but a way of life.

That's the point James makes.

This hard-hitting, uncompromising and ruthlessly exposing letter disturbs any notion that my Christian credentials are proven by a statement of faith or my adherence to a set of doctrines.

The proof of genuine faith is a transformed life. It's a faith that works. 


Simon Harris, Senior Minister
