Serving The Community
“Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that aperson really has it? …Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense? …Faith and works, works and faith, fit together hand in glove.” – James 2:14-18
