 Apostle's Testimony:


As a young man involved with drugs and the street life, Apostle Z was shot at point blank range and pronounced dead-on-arrival. Through the power of God, he emerged from a comatose state a changed man, born again, full of joy and dedicated to witnessing for The Lord!



He invites you to find your joy too! For information on how to enjoy a brand new life with Christ, visit our: What is Salvation page.
