The story of community

by Tim Chester

The story of community I wonder how you would summarise the gospel message. There is a version which runs something like this: ‘God made you to know Him, but you have rejected God. Your sin cuts you off from God and brings you under His judgement. But God sent His Son to die in your…

by Paul Yeulett
