As we put the unity back into community through our actions, the body is strengthened and lives are transformed through Christ. Listen in as we identify the power of community for a Christ-follower's identity.

    Series: Identity
    How often do you settle with close enough or good enough in your walk with Christ. Continuing in our Identity Series this week we are looking at the importance and the power in tasting and seeing that the Lord is good. It doesn't matter how much we know about God or how close we are to His Word if we are not experiencing it for ourselves and responding to it by applying it directly to our lives. Listen in and be encouraged to "Taste and See".
