Incarnation of Jesus Christ

Philippians 2:1-11 Relationships are only as healthy as the individuals that make up those relationships. Therefore, individual wholeness is the key to healthy relationships.

Canon

2 Peter 1:16-21 The Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God. It is necessary, authoritative, clear, and sufficient for all of faith and life.
