New Center celebrates homecoming

Published 1:35pm Tuesday, June 3, 2014

We live in a world where if we aren’t satisfied with our appearance we can change it. Want blonde hair, dye it, don’t have fingernails, buy a pack and glue them on, over weight, shrink the size of your stomach. We work really hard at making ourselves look good. According to Matthew 23:26 we must first work on the inside. God values a pure heart and a clean mind. When we are clean on the inside the outside will take care of itself.
