What Is PROOF?

Whenever we talk about PROOF, we’re referring to an acronym that summarizes five key facets of God’s amazing grace. PROOF reminds us of five different ways in which we experience the grace of God at work in our lives.

Planned Grace: Before time began, God mapped out the plan of salvation from first to last. God planned to adopt particular [Read More]

Ed Stetzer recently sat down with Daniel Montgomery to discuss the book PROOF. Here’s a portion of their discussion:
