Who Is Jesus , Really?
Jesus, our blessed Lord, is God Almighty revealed in Scripture. He was with the Father at creation. He entered our universe two thousand years ago to bring to all mankind abundant life, joy, peace, and love.
During This dispensation of grace, the Holy Spirit is anointing the church to proclaim this glorious gospel of salvation, deliverance, healing, and victory for the here and now.
