Feature Story: God Created You To Prosper

Does God want you to be rich? Or is money the root of all evil? Should we beware the “prosperity gospel”? Should we fear preachers who teach “health & wealth”?

  4. You are called to be a king (1 Peter 2:9, Revelation 1:5-6)
  5. To break bondage (Proverbs 22:7)
