Sermon – Father’s Day – Bro. Sibu Thomas

Evangelist Sibu Thomas who along with his wife Bini, have dedicated themselves towards the service of our Lord made a very fervent call to all the father’s to make God the priority in one’s family. He quoted the promise given by God to Abraham, to make him the father of many nations. Abraham believed in God’s promise, yet he did follow God’s will perfectly. And that is the lesson. God used Abraham despite his inherent flaws.



God is Dead || Spoken Word

This video is in response to the claims of the “New Atheism.” One that has been presented by the likes of Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins and the late Christopher Hitchens. One who holds faith is NOT irrational. Science and reason are not incompatible with faith in fact they complement each other very well because they come from the same source, God. We hope that this video touches the hearts of many people.
