In God We Trust, by Steve Ham

If challenged by a skeptic, would you be able to give a satisfying answer? We must grasp actual reasons that matter in our lives. It’s not just about defending the faith, or even simply about winning the lost. It is about an intimately personal worship of a God we can truly call Father.

True commitment to the Creator’s loving authority inevitably impacts us to the core, and helps us in such diverse areas as; family, worship, the way we view and interact at church, and even how we share the Good News of Christ's redeeming love with others!
