New Testament

The study of the New Testament fires the heart with awe and wonder. In it we read of God’s boundless love in sending His Son to redeem all who believe in His atoning death and resurrection. The Gospels describe in detail what Jesus said and did while on earth. The Epistles explain in depth the spiritual implications of who Christ was and what He did.
