God has spoken to us through His Word, a message for all time and all places. The Bible is the final authority and sufficient to teach us all we need to know in order to follow the Lord Jesus.  In next week’s sermon presentation, “The Bible Alone,” Phil Sanders will discuss how we must take the Bible for our authority – and the Bible alone.  The weekly program can be seen Sundays at 7:30 a.m. on WTRF-TV, Ch. 7.
