Live by Faith


Faith is necessary to follow Jesus. But sometimes it’s hard to know how to live by faith.

Heb. 11:1 tells us, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Further, that chapter goes on to say a person who does this is commended. Remarkably, it’s only by faith we understand how to live a healthy life. 

So, what should you put your faith in? And how do you live by faith?

This course shows you how to live by faith. Here is a list of the sessions:

  • Session 1: Ever Run Out Of Heroes?
  • Session 2: Faith Jump
  • Session 3: Fresh Faith
  • Session 4: Grow Up In Faith
  • Session 5: Faith Plus Family
  • Session 6: Who Can You Trust These Days?

Hope Does Not Disappoint


Often, life piles up with discouragement and responsibilities, taking the form of fatigue, disappointment, loss, challenges, unrealistic expectations, etc. To know “hope does not disappoint” means engaging an approach to life that’s both unusual and new to most people.

The title of this course comes straight from Scripture. Rom. 5:5 says, “. . . hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts . . .” 

When hope is lost, it’s tempting to give up – or slump into unhealthy responses. But hope is a kind of spiritual discipline that can be adopted, practiced, and mastered.

This course shows you how to live in hope. Here is a list of the sessions:

  1. We Have Hope!
  2. Steps to Renew HOPE!
  3. How to Live with Hope
  4. Choose Hope Even in Trials
  5. Plans For Hope And A Future In Last Days
  6. Hope for a New Year
  7. Like Lucy – See What Others Don’t
  8. Strategies of Rest – A New Start
