Sometimes people ask us: “what do you believe?” The core message of this website is best summarized by the well-known verse in the Bible.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish
but have eternal life.
John 3:16

And, yes – the Bible says you can know for sure that you have eternal life.

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God

Every Secret Exposed – What About God?

By On April 10, 2018

When the FBI or the MI5 show up at your door, unannounced, with a search warrant, it must be a horrifying experience.

Infrastructure Bridges are Critical – The Spiritual Connection
