A Call To Christian Maturity

Ephesians 4:11-16 | Sermon Resources | 22 May 2022


In the sermon this week Pastor Billy unpacks Paul’s call for the church to build itself up in love in order to grow into “mature manhood.”  We will consider both a vision for Christian maturity and our role in the process.
