This Week’s Message – “Freedom from Evil”

by Pastor Dan Stockum

Demon possession. Not something that the Western world talks about very often outside of horror films. But what if the many other cultures who recognize the existence of such evil have picked up on something that we have missed? What would we need to know about it? How would we recognize it? And how could we get free? This week, we study the longest passage in Scripture describing a demon possession and the liberation that Jesus brings.

Scripture Focus: Mark 5:1-20
