A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS

Luke 6:27 says ?But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you?? Jesus was the perfect example of this command in his life and death. Love has such redemptive, life-changing power. While not everyone responds, many do. While being kind in our deeds and loving in our hearts to our enemies is not easy, God?s Spirit can fill us with Jesus? love and help us live powerful lives of grace even in the presence of those who hate us.

Pastor Campos
