For something a bit deeper than a puddle, Brother Heart would like to extend to you the light of his personal hero– Jesus Christ

Through his congregation on The Gospel of Jesus Christ’s True Message of Love and Transcendence brother Heart relates the story of his transformation in the light of God, inviting you to share your own, and walk the path with him to righteousness.

Psalm 46–
to the chief Musician for the sons of Korah,
A Song upon Alamoth

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
