BETH CAR BAPTIST CHURCH
Everyone is invited to visit this Sunday, Dec. 4 to see and hear Dr. Eldridge Cullum do a biblical dramatic portrayal of the Apostle John speaking on the book of Revelation, which the Holy Spirit inspired him to write. This will support the current Sunday School Series in Revelation. There is a lot of mystery and bewilderment and fascination and interest and confusion among people about the book of Revelation. Some think it is a book of gloom and doom and are fearful of it. In this portrayal the Apostle John will talk about the context in which it was written, and why he used symbols, and the meaning of these symbols. He will give an overview of the entire book and share the main message of the book. This is a message that many people will not want to miss and we want to encourage everyone to come and to invite others to come.
