God doesn’t want you to just READ the Bible, He wants you to EXPERIENCE the Bible. God wants you to experience all of the things that He experiences, so we can comprehend His love and compassion for us and for others in order to be more like Jesus. Learn about this through Pastor Jose Boveda’s new message, “Knowing and Experiencing God’s Experience.”
