A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS

John 8:31-32 says “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” Truth is not something we know, it is something we live. And Jesus in the book of John reminds us that we must not only know his teaching, but also obey it. However, obedience is one of the proofs of our discipleship and doorway to freedom and truth.

– Pastor Campos
