If I could only teach you one thing
Why God Made You.
Do you know why you’re here?
If Pastor Rick could only teach you one thing, it would be the answer to that question.
You were planned and made by God, and you are not an accident. He has a purpose for everything and everyone, and he created you to make a unique contribution in the world. Finding your purpose begins with God. In this message you’ll discover God’s five purposes for your life and learn how you were designed to uniquely fulfill each of them. In doing so, you’ll live a life filled with true meaning and significance. (Sermon by Rick Warren)
