Mixed-Up Mess

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. No one can question that we have a God who likes order. There was an orderly way he went about his work of creation in those six days.

That’s what makes the first Bible Story…

Your house?  While those things seem valuable now, they won’t last forever.  So, then what is the most precious thing you have?  How about your faith in Jesus?  Faith is the only thing that guarantees you’ll have an amazing eternity in heaven with Jesus.  Nothing, absolutely nothing else can do that.
