We celebrate with immense joy during this season that we remember the birth of Jesus Christ. The reason we are joyful for his birth is that Jesus was God in the flesh. He was born as a human at just the right time so that he could live his perfect life and then lay down his life, providing the payment for our sin. That is the wonder of his love.[Read more…] about Merry Christmas!

During these trying times, our pastors are diligently ministering to the needy in their communities. The demonstration of their faith in action to the impoverished and helpless has a dramatic influence on the lives of people watching.
