Who are the preachers you listen to?

Where is Jesus in your church?
So if someone was to walk into your church, as a complete stranger, on any given weekend, would they walk out and say “I came in contact with Jesus today”? Why do we have church in the first place? Is it not because: We love Jesus We want to show our appreciation to God for Jesus ...
