Eagle in Flight - Believing the truthBelieving the truth, God’s truth, is the active power of our new life. It is the Lord’s grace-based way of giving wings to our new life of faith. All Christians will tell you that they believe in Jesus. But have we been “blinded” by the light? The all-important issue of believing doesn’t end there.

How Does God See Us?

How Does God See Us? Separate from Sin!
