This is the finale to our series on Sin <<< Salvation. Not only is it the grand finale, but it was also our message for our Back 2 School Bash event! What better way to end a series and invite people to give their lives to Jesus than with a message on eternity? What does the Christian have to look forward to forever? We talked about the point, place, people, and the life of eternity. All of these are much different than you may think and probably way different than you've been taught. The Bible is very plain and clear about them! So check it out, see what all we have to look forward to, and get excited!
