Title Treatment for the Breathe Life Bible

Christians are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world.

To be proclaimers of good news—agents of reconciliation with a message of hope, and faith that takes action. We need wisdom from God’s Word, power from His Spirit, hope from His gospel, and faith that He will equip us for the task.

Find answers to some of life’s most difficult situations. Discover what faith in action really looks like as we pursue God’s vision of being a community where all people are valued and cared for.
