Encouragements

  • Jesus Christ must always be at the center of our proclamation of the Gospel.
  • Be encouraged when you proclaim the Gospel that there is no higher authority than Jesus Christ who sends you.
  • Jesus Christ IS Lord and Christ. So repent of  your sins and believe in Jesus Christ alone for your salvation.
