“Love Wins” 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

“Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My (Jesus) disciples.” John 13:35 (NLT). PCCC has been learning about the power of Love. That it’s more important than…spiritual gifts and knowledge. But while knowledge makes us feel important, it is love that strengthens the church.
