A NEW SERIES!!! As we kick off the Christian Challenge Series, my heartfelt desire is that you will be challenged to apply the principles taught from the Word of God and move to a more spirit filled life and a deeper love and commitment to God. We must begin this challenge by faith and accept what is biblical over what is cultural. As Christians, we cannot embrace what is culturally acceptable at the expense of Christianity.
