Expect Your Miracle
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. James 5:16
We believe Jesus is the only Son of God, who came to earth as a man, died for our
sins, and came back to life again. We believe all who in faith trust Him and
acknowledge Him as their Lord and Savior to forgive their sins are part of the world
wide body of Christ.

    11. THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE
    We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily.  (Ephesians 4:30-32)
