The Essence Of Our Faith

Christendom has two important annual occasions – the celebration of Christmas and the remembering of the Holy Week.

The Unending Last Days

During this time of the pandemic, a lot of Christians believe we are now in the “last days”.

The Eternal Gospel

The story of Jesus and Nicodemus may be found through John 3:1-21. Nicodemus was said to be a ruler of the Jews.

He wasContinue reading “The Eternal Gospel”
