Program Notes

Feel The Spirit

John 3:16

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.''

I Corinthians 2:9, 10

However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him" -but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.

1 John 4:7,8

Dear friends, Let us love one another, for love comes from God.

Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
