Live in the Life – Giving Reign of Christ

Live in the Life – Giving Reign of Christ

Being born human means we are born in the line of Adam, which is why we are doomed to die. But there is great hope in Jesus who brings a new reign of life. Pastor Ryan will teach from Romans 5:12-21; “Live in the life-giving reign of Christ.”
