Men's Advance

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
-- 1 John 5:4


All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
-- 2 Timothy 3:16-17

"As iron sharpens iron, so one brother sharpens another."
-- Proverbs 27:17
