Branded for Christ
Women's Ministry Theme
Posted February 16, 2007
Western theme revolving around being "branded" or identified with Christ.
Theme Verse Suggestions
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost
which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not
your own? 1 Corinthians 6:19
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world. Philippians 2:15
