Unleashing Hope  \\  May 8, 2014

Passage: Revelation 2-3

It’s a super encouraging topic today, as Pastor Ray shares from Revelation. Using the example of the messages to the 7 churches in Revelation 2-3, God offers a common “prescription” to the 7 churches AND to us: It’s time to overcome! Your future is not determined by your past. You can have victory in Jesus today! Let this exciting news springboard you to live by faith, not by fear.
