I have obviously had times when I have struggled with my faith and questioned exactly what I believed in, but after my experiences and going through this class I have a clearer understanding of myself and my faith.

Every man is in need of salvation by the Holy Spirit. The salvation of man is only possible because of God 's grace and we could never earn his grace on our own.
