CONFIDENCE: THE GROUND I STAND

“For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.” – Psalm 71:5

Where does your confidence come from?

Your relationships, success, wealth or appearance?

God calls us to place our confidence in His Son, Jesus. OneLove 2018 will be a day where you will be challenged and encouraged to grow in your confidence of Jesus and His word. It will be a day where the supremacy of Jesus in all things is proclaimed, and the power of the Gospel to change lives will be seen and heard.

Ladies, register online and let Jenny Luke or Alison Shiner know you’re coming.
