"We are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to whoever believes." We walk in Holy Spirit power. We are sold out for the goal of serving our King. He lives inside of us, therefore we are supernatural. We have His heart and mind, so we love like He loves, heal like He heals and bring people to freedom, because that's what He purchased. We know the will of the Father, so we do it. We hear what He is saying, so we say it. We walk in victory, because we are more than conquerors in Jesus. Our greatest goal is to know our Father in Heaven and for you to know and encounter Him as well. We are a family and we'd love you to be part of it.
