To Save Our Country

If God is to save our country, we must confess our sins. We must humble ourselves before him. We must dedicate ourselves to live righteous lives before him. We must reach out to others around the world to point to the salvation that is in God. What sins must we confess, you ask. They are many!

The only way to sustain ourselves is to rise above it is through God. Search this list and see how many of the things do apply to you. Seek God’s face in repentance and asked forgiveness and live the life that he intended for us to live.
