Acts 16:11-34

Sermon Theme – When a person truly comes to faith in Christ, they know Him in a saving way and want nothing more than for others to know Him as well; to know the joy of having their sins forgiven and to know the hope of eternal life. In other words, knowing Christ is the motivation to make Christ known.
