SOMETHING BETTER: A Journey Through the Book of Hebrews

According to the book of Hebrews, everything is made better in and by Christ. He paints for us a better picture of God. He makes for us a better sacrifice. He stands in the heavenly sanctuary for us as a better high priest. He leads us on a better path of life. He establishes in our hearts a better covenant. And He has prepared for us a better city to call home for eternity. In every way Jesus is better than anything mere religion has to offer. We invite you to make the journey with us through Hebrews to experience Something Better in Jesus.


Join us June 23-27 for the 2015 Light Bearers Convocation.
