Revival or Riot Gospel
It presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Messiah in a refreshed, revamped, Holy-Spirit-we-need-you way.
The language is easy. The tone is laid back, but the content is super serious. This isn’t a lecture; we want you to be at peace, nice and easy, open hearted and ready to receive.
But at the same time, a lotta this stuff just might be presented to you in a new way. Sometimes disturbing (we hope so). Sometimes hard to believe (we pray so). And for most part, we hope, life-changing (we believe so!). So… you’re gonna need to courage – hey it’s gonna be outta your comfort zone we know it’s gonna be hard. You’re gonna need prayer (you’re gonna need help).
