… why it really matters.

From 9 February to 11 May beginning at 9:45 and running to 10:45
Theology is not about impractical mysteries – it’s about communicating and living for Jesus in the world everyday. Curious?
Come join the discussion beginning with questions like these:
+ Does God only speak to us through the Bible?

+ If our beliefs come from the Bible, why do Christians disagree?
+ How can Jesus be both God and man – 100%?
See you there on Sunday 9 February!
REGISTER NOW! – 25 JANUARY, FOCUS DAY!

The Elders and the prayer ministry want to extend a call to you to join us in a time of corporate fasting and prayer from 12-19 January 2014. We will join the Universal week of prayer in Belgium in this. We will be fasting and praying during this week with many other Christians over the Globe, including people from Belgium, Europe, South Africa and the USA.
