'All In' four-week study with Pastor John Lacey


All In: You Are One Decision Away from a Totally Different Life
Wednesdays through October 1, 2014 | 6:30-7:30 p.m. | Bliss Chapel

The Gospel costs nothing. You can't earn it or buy it. It can only be received as a free gift, compliments of God's grace. It doesn't cost anything, but it demands everything. It demands that we go "all in," a term that simply means placing all that you have into God's hands. The message of All In is simple: If Jesus is not Lord of all then Jesus is not Lord at all. It's all or nothing. It's now or never. Kneeling at the foot of the cross of Christ and surrendering to His Lordship is a radical act of dethroning yourself and enthroning Christ as King. It's also an act of disowning yourself. Nothing belongs to you. Not even you. Join Pastor John for this life changing study as we go "all in!"
