Easter 2012 – What The Blood Does

“It’s the scarlet thread that ties the beginning to the end…” This is the first line that we are going to take from our theme song, It’s All About The Blood.  I promised in our last post that we would look at what would happen if we took the blood out of the Bible.  Our…

Introduction: Easter 2012 – It’s All About The Blood

“God’s love is all about the blood of Jesus Christ.” Last year for Easter we took a look at different characters surrounding the cross: the Roman Centurion, Peter, the thief on the cross, Barabbas, Joseph and of course none other than our Lord Himself.

Video – Ivan, would you like some help?

CD Review: Christmas With Brian Free and Assurance

At this time of year, nothing can get a person in the “Christmas spirit” like listening to some good Christmas music!  So, reviewing a Christmas Cd seemed like a great idea!

BFA – Demonstrating Real Faith

As I took a front row seat at the Brookline First Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri, the pastor and music director taped a sign that said, “Welcome Brian Free and Assurance,” to the carpeted stage.  I was delighted with finding a seat in the front, and after making some new friends and catching up with…

BFA Video Blog – The Game Or The Gospel?

Here is the video blog to accompany BFA’s concert review entitled The Game Or The Gospel.  Throughout the video you can see a portion of the emotion the guys put into their performances that night, but it still doesn’t capture the energy that was on stage!  The energy you see here was fourfold live!  So…
