IF:GATHERING   |   Friday, Feb 5th-Saturday, Feb 6th   |   Topeka Bible Church   |   $5
God is who he says he is, so let's take steps of faith believing it. The world around us feels like it is crumbling and almost nothing seems certain, until we look to Jesus and see that our Hope is very clear and certain. He didn’t just give us salvation—Jesus is our salvation and the example of what it means to live in the fullness of grace and truth. What the world needs His redemption, the very redemption and hope that lives inside of us. Rather than shrink back, it is time to love like Jesus loved, serve like Jesus served, pray like Jesus prayed, and pursue holiness like Jesus pursued it. Join us at Topeka Bible Church Friday, February 5 from 4:00-10:00 p.m. and Saturday, February 6 from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., to look to Jesus as our perfect example of how to live in the fullness of grace and truth.
