In Order to Form a More Perfect Union

Rev. David Johnson, Assoc., New Creation Church of God, Flint

How can we as Church of God leaders and congregations live out our doctrinal mandate of "UNITY"?

The Symphony of Unity

Rev. Joshua Brandt, Lead Pastor, Pennway Church of God, Lansing

Imagine hearing an orchestra or a band playing the same note in unison over and over. Not only would it be boring, it would barely qualify as music.
