John 3:16 - The Story of Love

We may think we understand John 3:16, but do we really grasp the extent of God's love for us? I know that I don't, I go through life struggling through the day to day tasks and forget that there is a bigger picture. God's love is beyond our understanding. Please take the time to watch this video as a fresh reminder of how much God loves you!

"John 3:16 - The Story of Love" came from the movie Most (The Bridge), a beautiful Oscar-nominated movie and winner of many prestigios film festivals that te...


The Cry of the Why I was recently scanning the internet and stumbled on a website,, strictly used for the purpose to allow teens to post quotes. While I was reading through them, one quote resonated...


Say Something (Extended) - by A Great Big World - WorshipMob cover

Beautiful. Raw. The cry from the depths of who we are that is then answered by God's cry of love. "Everywhere I've been there with you, child, I will never give up on you."

Say Something (A Great Big World) - WorshipMob - extended - Listen to WHOLE song, for a response to this desperation... Be MOB -

Life is messy, hurt is inevitable, but there is one thing that can see us through the tears and pain. Jesus is the way. He said he would never leave us and would never turn his back on us. He loves you; anger, hurt, pain and all. Love to all those that are hurting and feel no hope today. There is a way. Jesus. For all those that need to hear it, I love you!
