When Fortunes Are Restored

When Fortunes Are Restored

God’s creation, marred and afflicted by sin, will one day be restored. God’s redemptive plan for the cosmos is centered in one Man, Jesus Christ. The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has […]

Good News and Great Joy

Good News and Great Joy

Jesus didn’t leave his disciples with a question mark, but an exclamation point. The body of Christ, the church, in order to go in power and change the world, must first— Be convinced of his resurrection power. Be commissioned for global witness.
