The Power of the Gospel and the Kingdom of God


What did the Old Testament anticipate in the coming Messiah? What is the message that Jesus proclaimed throughout the gospels? What did Paul and the rest of the apostles preach to their Jewish and Gentile audiences?

Rica was born in Orissa, India and immigrated to America when she was two years old. She was raised in a loving, devout Hindu home, but at the age of 28, beheld the beauty of Jesus Christ and her life has never been the same. The desire of her heart is for people from every nation, tongue and tribe to know the great delight of being fully known and fully loved by Christ and for that knowledge to compel them to share His grace in radical ways.
