• God is in full control of his world!
• Challenges bring opportunities for Christian witness!
• Heaven rejoices when Christ is glorified on earth!

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Cor. 10:3-6)
*connecting *informing *equipping

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline (2 Tim. 1:7)
