Living Successfully by Loving Our Wives
Tim Murphy, chairman of our elder board, preached from Proverbs 2:1-6 and then expanded into Ephesians 5:17-30 to discover how Christ loves the church: unconditionally, sacrificially, tenderly, and redemptively. This message particularly applies to husbands and fathers, but also for all of us! Listen to “Living Successfully by Loving Our Wives.
