Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

The sign says,
"No fishing from dam".

It is not easy to deny ourselves,
yet that is exactly what Jesus
says we must do if we would come after Him.

“Then Jesus said to his disciples,
‘If anyone would come after me,
he must deny himself
and take up his cross and follow me.
For whoever wants to save his life
will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for me
will find it.
What good will it be for a man
if he gains the whole world,
yet forfeits his soul?
Or what can a man give
in exchange for his soul?’”
- Matthew 16:24-26 NIV
