WHAT ARE WE DOING?

WHAT ARE WE DOING? In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus Christ, who is the Head of His church, left His followers with marching orders. Matthew records: “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the […]

The Silver Bullet

The Silver Bullet is most famous amongst the Hollywood filming industry for being the only thing capable for defeating a werewolf.
