TO UPHOLD THE AUTHORITY OF GOD'S WORD!

things, and the God of peace will be with you.” (ESV)
…By Word Of Mouth!
1 Peter 4:11 “whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the
strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong

1 Peter 3:15-16 “15but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense
to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; 16yet do it with gentleness and respect,

be put to shame.” (ESV)
