Discovering the Spiritual Adventure

Jesus said, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly,” (John 10:10) but that’s hardly what most people believe. When they think of Christianity, they think of harshness and hypocrites. They may think Christians are negative people waiting to die before they can live.

I believe differently. I believe life is an adventure of discovery where we encounter God in the most exciting way possible.
