Spirit Alive 2023 Presents

Kingdom of God

“Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, he said in reply, “The coming of the kingdom of God cannot be observed, and no one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the kingdom of God is among you.”
– Luke 17:20-21

Step into the wondrous realm of the Kingdom of God as we delve into the profound truth of God’s Kingdom reigning within and around us. In the embrace of His unwavering love and power, we are summoned to nurture an unbounded faith and unreserved reliance on Him.
