Why Tell Stories?
The gospel of Jesus changes hearts and lives. It may be something radical, like Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus, or it may be a slow, gradual awakening. Whatever the case, we tell these stories to show pictures of the bigger story of what God is doing in the lives of people of Faith Church and in our community through the transforming
power of the Gospel.
