My small group at Bethlehem is reading Sun Stand Still by Steven Furtick, Pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, NC. I have really been enjoying the book so far, but this morning I read there 12 faith confessions and I just had to share them. In the book, Pastor Furtick talks about how we need to Activate our faith by speaking Gods word in our lives and he gives us these 12 Faith Confessions to get you started on just that! You can check out more info on the book at Sun Stand Still.
