Have you been looking for like-minded people that seek to experience the depth of love from God that He provides ... then please read! This is not a solicitation from a church nor is this a plea to get people to serve. The Spirit has been quite clear to provide a venue for people that desire the fellowship and soul feeding that a church environment could provide without the condemnation and expectations associated with organized religion. What exactly this will look like is yet to be determined. Not that we don’t want some vision of this but we do not want any ‘mans’ vision. We are completely comfortable with whatever God may be doing. When I say ‘we’ there are just a few that have been praying for God’s direction. For those interested come for regular "Consider This" videos and "Sermons" as lead by the Spirit. If you want to be included on our reminder list please leave your email in the discussion section of our Christian liberation organization Youtube site , or email us directly at christianliberationorg@gmail.com. We reside in the western mountains of Maine and would welcome gatherings. Looking forward with great expectation of God’s work! May you experience the joy and peace of the Father, Son & Spirit!
