How God Develops Champions

February 2, 2020 / 2:

God wants His church to shine His light in the dark community it finds itself. God wants to raise up champions to fight the good fight of faith.

God wants us to take the field and win. But He doesn’t leave us to our own skill He fills us so that we can be champions.

God Works in His – v. 1
