When God created mankind, He did so with the desire to hang out with us. He wanted to walk with us, talk with us, and show us His power and His love. We messed that up along the way, but God’s desire never changed. Enter Jesus…
Jesus not only came to clean up our mess, heal our brokenness, and free us from sin, He also re-established the connection between God and mankind. He came to reveal and launch His Kingdom, one that turns our world upside down and has the audacity to offer us hope and abundant life.
I have come so that you may have life, and have it to the full.
At NHV we want to take Jesus up on His offer for abundant life. Representing the very heart and vision of NHV, these pillars express how we believe God wants to expand His Kingdom and message of hope through each and every one of us.
