Are you a homeless Christian?

When Jesus was preparing for crucifixion, He shared with the disciples that He was going to leave them in order to prepare an eternal home for them. He is saying the same thing to us Christians today. It is imperative to be certain that we are living a life that will honor God so that we will be able to occupy our eternal home when we leave this place. And while we are here on earth preparing to move into our eternal home, we need to unite ourselves with a body of believers, called a church. You are welcome to join us online on Sundays. We are happy to accept you into our earthly home as we make preparations to live in our eternal home. Come join us. There's no place like home! John 14:1-3
