    Pastor Paul Sausser By God’s grace and no small miracle, each one of us has become a walking, talking, breathing Temple of no less than God’s own Holy Spirit.  Each of us is a mini-Temple and together as a church we create an even bigger Temple, a bigger concentration of where God lives.

    Pastor Paul Sausser While the Apostle has paid a good foundation—Jesus Christ and him crucified—the local believers in Corinth have the responsibility for raising the structure.

    Pastor Paul Sausser The thinking of humankind would never have come up with the cross as a way of being with God. The cross means repentance, not achievement.
