W&E: Nominal Christianity

Our most recent message in the Worldview & Evangelism series was from brother Vincent Sapitan. Nominal Christians are people who are Christian in “name only” and nothing else. These individuals profess to be Christians yet their hearts have not truly been changed, evidenced by their lifestyle and lack of fruit-bearing. Brother Vincent explains the danger of falling under this category of nominal Christianity.
