The Power of Limitations

“My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness.” *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Just Jesus

When we proclaim the good news to the poor, they experience that only in Jesus there is forgiveness, salvation and, the gift of eternal life with the Father. When we listen to His message, they can actually experience that. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Jesus, the Gospel and Justice

Sharing God’s Heart

And what difference can one person make, anyway? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

The Upside Down Society
