A Book of Faith

A Book of Faith

“My faith is in a person, not a book.” In WWII soldiers were issued the New Testament for Servicemen. It was a copy of the NT with a metal cover.

In our Word of the Week, Pastor Neal Radichel explains the Biblical word Reconciliation. This word describes a change in a relationship. We have been separated from God because of our sin.
