Dare to claim God’s truth!
We are God’s creation, created in love by the God of love.
Where are we in our journey towards Christ?
Do we want to be in a loving relationship with Him?
When we are in a relationship with Him, we matter as part of God’s family & perfect creation.
When aligned with God
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
