In this sermon Mr. Smith looks at the meaning of the word faith. He does this by doing an in depth focus on Hebrews 11:1 where the word is defined. He uses various translations and other Bible helps to look at the meanings of each of the key words in the verse, and by doing so clearly shows us what the Bible means by the word faith.
