Generous Great “GIVING”

This is what “generous giving” really means :     “John 3:16 ” For God So Loved … that He GAVE  His Only begotten Son…” As the saying goes you cannot love with giving.   11You will be enriched in every way to be generous on every occasion, and your giving through us will produce thanksgiving to God. 12For this ministry of service is not only supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanksgiving to God.… (2 Cor. 9:11-12) Romans 12:8 if it is encouraging, let…

In this message, we look at why Jesus came to earth, who Jesus came for, and different ways for how we can respond.

And our response can be hostile, shallow enthusiasm, apathy,…

God Sex and Marriage: By God’s Design Marriage is Two Becoming One

In this series, we tackle the controversial topic of what exactly the Bible says about God, Sex, and Marriage.
