In this candid interview, Katie reveals what it took for her to forgive Josh and allow God to work miracles in their relationship.
A Man Fell in a Hole: Told in the manner of a modern day parable, this dramatic video illustration examines the life of a man searching through the false promises of other religions. His life demonstrates that there is only one path that will lift mankind out of its destitute condition.
Effects of Sin and Grace: What happens when we deny we are sinners? 1 John says that makes us liars and the truth is not in us. What happens when Jesus sheds His blood for our sins? We receive grace. This hope-filled video illustration compares the effects of iodine and food coloring to sin and grace.
Chris Seay has a unique ability to draw us into Scripture in a fresh way, making it relevant to life in the 21st Century. His ability to draw out Scriptural truths from pop culture reminds us that each of us seeks a redemptive story, a redemption that can only be found in the Gospel of Jesus.
