Also be sure to listen to Borgman’s fantastic sermon Children in Worship found here.

Saturday Sermon Series: “The Fear of God” (Parts 1 – 3 of 9) by Albert Martin.

In addition to DefCon’s weekly sermon of the week (posted every Thursday), we occasionally feature a Saturday Sermon Series.

For the next three Saturdays we are pleased to present a nine-part series (three parts a week) by Albert N. Martin on the fear of God.

This is a powerful message that every Christian can benefit from.
