Pastor Hall’s morning message was from I Corinthian 1-9. The pastor is commissioned by God and given grace to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and make him the center of our life. When we lift up Christ we are teaching holiness.

The Holy Spirit dwells within you and gives us the power to win the lost in a dying world.
