Rediscover Your Faith!

“I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full!”
(John 10,10)
You believe in God, yet you ask yourself …
Why did God create me?
What is the meaning of my life?
Why sickness and death?
Why evil and war?
Can my life change for the better?
So, come listen and walk with Jesus.
