Chris Wall • Ephesians 5:21-33
Jesus Christ is the hope of the world and the Church is His plan for sharing that hope with the world.
We gather as the Church to spur one another to love and good deeds.
Together, our unity shines;
Our purpose, defined;
Our love, refined;
And the world will never be the same.
History has it's eye...on the Church.
To Gather in a Changing World.
