Follow Jesus

This Sunday’s focus is on the foundational principle of “follow Jesus.” Join us as we consider four essential spiritual practices that characterize the life of the disciple that follows Jesus.

What Manner of Love

3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth…
