Knowing, Seeing, and Gaining God
In an Age of Godlessness

5 Locations

“Our God is a wonderful God who desires to be known by us and expressed through us. We live, however, in an age that not only is ignorant of God, but even opposes what He is in His nature and what He wants to carry out in His economy. Hence, it is critical for us as young people to know God, see God, and gain God in our experience so that He can have a testimony for Himself on the earth.”
