Life | works

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”

 -Apostle Paul (Philippians 2:13)

Life | Works is what God is doing in each one of us. What we do in Life | Works is grounded in the truth that each person who crosses our path is a masterpiece, created by God; one with whom God is already working, restoring to his or her original design. We seek to be led by the Holy Spirit in walking alongside one another, overcoming barriers and building on God’s blueprints to help one another become all that God designed him or her to be.

“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” -Jesus (John 10:10)
