As You Go…Securing God’s Acceptance
Dr. Jeffrey Clark
Question: In what way does God accept anyone who respects him and does what is right?
- Answer #1: God extends family membership to those who do what is right.
- Answer #2: The ‘anyone’ refers to all believers and the outcome of faith in Christ.
- Answer #3: God favors good deeds over bad comparatively, among all people.
We want to extend a special welcome to visitors and guests, and we invite you to an informal reception immediately following our worship service. Pastor Jeff will meet you at the Welcome Center, where you can also receive a special gift when you turn in a Communication Card.
