Small Town Theologian with Jonathan Shirk

Hosted ByJonathan Shirk

Allowing the Biblical truths of the Heidelberg Catechism to shape our theology and Christian living.

STT 088 – Take Heart, Your Conversion Is a Process (HC LD 33, QA 88-91)

Is conversion a sensational experience that happens only one time in someone’s life? Is conversion repeating a prayer after an evangelist or preacher and walking an aisle? Having a Biblical understanding of conversion is comforting and encouraging. Conversion is more than what many Christians think. Much more in some cases. May this episode clarify conversion a little bit for you and encourage you in your walk with Christ.
