DADS-PLACE / ENCOUNTER 2022 - Statement of Faith
We believe Jesus is the true son of GodThat he was born of a virginThat he lived a sinless life on EarthThat he willingly died for the salvation of all mankindThat he rose again in victory over death three days laterThat he is alive with the father in heaven nowThat he will one day return for all who have accepted him as their Lord & Savior That anyone who confesses this with their mouth and believes it in their heart will be saved from an eternity separated from God
There is Hope!
Above all else, we want everyone to know that God loves YOU!
No matter what mistakes or bad decisions you've made, the addictions with which you've struggled, no matter where you find yourself
