Growing In Love

The greatest miracle of them all is simply the fact that God loves us in spite of our turning away from Him. Indeed, He loves us so much that He sends His Son to draw us back to Himself – John 3: 16-17.
At EPC, we strive to help one another to grow in love – in the way we love God, in the way we love one another. We seek to learn to love one another as God has first loved us – husbands and wives, parents and children, family and friends, brothers and sisters in the family of God.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.  In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.  No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.1 John 4: 7-12
