Walking in Hope

Hope and physical well-being are interlinked. People with depression are more prone to heart attack, i.e. hopelessness leads to chronic physical illnesses.

What is Hope? It is a Steady, quiet, confident expectation for good, whereas, Sick in Hebrew means a cause to grieve.

Walking in Faith

This year 2019 will be a year of Greater Faith. If we have seen faith last year, we will see greater faith. We all want to grow in our faith this year right?

Amplifying Evangelism

Evangelism: God wants us to influence the people we have relationships with. It’s never as difficult in reality as it seems in our minds.

We are partners and co heirs in God’s ...
