Today’s Message: “Balancing the Scales”
Foundation Verses: Ephesians 4:1-6
WELCOME to Cleburne Bible Church. If you haven’t made a decision to trust Christ as your personal Savior, our hope and prayer for you is that you will make that decision. “And this is the testimony, that God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son.
