Privacy Policy

Who we are

We are a ministry that teaches God’s word through living scripture from the Holy Bible that leads and points to Jesus, not us. People are dying, hurting, struggling, not knowing, lost, abused and much more in this fallen world we live in. Time is running thin and more people are facing life changing events each day. If you are looking to be set right with God, restored and reinstated then Holy Scripture will do this (Galatians 6:1). We provide that necessary teaching.
