Back in the time in which the Bible was being written, a person’s name usually said something about that person’s character or destiny. This is why the many names of God are vitally important for us to see and understand. Each name of God reveals something about His character. At the same time, God’s names show us many ways in which He is there to help us in our times of need.


Join us as we discover God’s character and power through studying the names which He has revealed to us through His word!
