Fellowship With God That’s Worthwhile

Our Faith, Our Heart, His Love

Do you know what makes somebody stand out before God? Some think it’s money, some intellect, some power, etc. But none of these are what God primarily notices in us—it’s our heart He’s looking at. Every one of us starts out as a lost sinner, yet God still loves us. But we can’t make it…

Rest Assured When Jesus Compels You
