Defeating the Enemy
Pastor Phil released his first book in 2017, “Defeating the Enemy.” With Phil's experience in law enforcement, knowing the enemy is key in defeating him.
Everything God wants to give you, Satan seeks to steal. Why live in captivity when Jesus came to give you an abundant life? “Defeating the Enemy” equips and teaches you how you can expose and overcome the strategies of Satan.
Get the upper hand on the enemy of your soul.
The Weapons of Our Warfare
Pastor Phil released his second book in 2020, “The Weapons of Our Warfare.” His first book helps you identify the enemy’s strategies. This book takes you to the next level of spiritual warfare.
“The Weapons of Our Warfare” teaches you how to break free from Satan’s strongholds, exercise your kingdom authority, and use the full armor of God.
Spiritual warfare is a call to arms. Use God’s armor to claim your victory and demolish the enemy’s work in your life today.
