What I Believe is What I do


One can be saved but when an individual is NOT in full pursuit after Christ the process of renewing the mind does not happen. Instead, the mind is filled with the things of this world and one loses sight of Godly TRUTH. The renewing of our minds on a daily basis is vital in order…
