  2. Use God’s Word! (Acts 4:11)

  3. Don’t Compromise the Message! (Acts 4:12)

John 14:6 - one comes the Father except through me.

1 Timothy 2:5 - For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus

John 3:36 – Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides upon him.
