This sermon begins a series--"Basic Good News." In it you can learn how I try to lead the congregation from the pulpit. The idea for the series came from my finding a small booklet that contained five verses for a new Christian to learn. My intention was to give young Christians a foundation, and to fortify the foundation of all the congregation. I also hoped to equip the members of the congregation with scripture they might share with others, as a way of sharing the Gospel.
