"All We Need"
This world has certainly given us everything we need to live an ungodly life. 2 Peter 1:3 says that God has given us everything we need to live a godly life.
We have ALL WE NEED.
So what has God given us and how can we utilize these things better? Join us on February 25th, as we answer some of these questions….
How can we better utilize the gift we have of the Holy Spirit?
How can we better utilize the gift of His Word?
How can we use these gifts to better talk about our faith and defend it in the world we live in?
