About this website
Walk By Faith To Live colors are black and gold, which symbolize light out of the darkness. Jesus is the light. The cross represents Jesus’ atoning work and saving us from our sins. We need to take up and carry our crosses daily to experience the glory and Resurrection as Jesus did. Phil. 4:13 – “We can accomplish everything through He (Jesus) who empowers us.” This verse, along with “I will walk by faith even when I cannot see,” is the theme and message of Walk By Faith To Live.
