Jesus: The Manifestation of the Life of God

Reaching the World with the Gospel of Jesus Christ

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God– John 1:12-13
