In the Beginning [February 19, 2017] Tim Haring

Different religions have differing ideas of what God is like. But who is God? How can we know Him? And what difference does any of it make?

In the Beginning is a series focusing on what God has made known about himself in the first three chapters of the Bible in the book of Genesis. Join us in discovering how life changing this information can be in our relationship with God and with others.
“For [God’s] love is never, never, never based on our performance, never conditioned by our moods—of elation or depression. The furious love of God knows no shadow of alteration or change. It is reliable. And always tender.” - Brennan Manning
“Love has an immense ability to help heal devastating wounds that life sometimes deals us.” – Sue Johnson
God doesn't just love us; he likes us.
God doesn't just love us; he likes us.
· God’s love for us is based on whether we are good or bad.
· God’s love for us is based on our service to him.
· God’s love has limits.
