This message looks at Abram's scary step of faith to follow God into great uncertainty, holding on to nothing but God's promises.  We're shown how likewise we who respond to God in faith can be a great blessing to the families of the world.

This recording begins with two other important elements:

  1. General welcome and announcements by Lizy Johnson (beginning - 2:45)
  2. Special announcement from the Elders, given by Dick Jaques and Ben Deaver: New Hope excited to plant a new church in Manhattan! (2:45-23:45)

For more about why a vigorous and continuous approach to church planting is a great strategy to increase the number of believers, and is one of the best ways to renew the whole body of Christ, check out this excellent article by Tim Keller, "Why Plant Churches?".
