ANAHEIM, California — Esteemed evangelist Greg Laurie warned thousands of Christians and non-believers Friday night that one sin is all it takes to keep them out of Heaven and contended that religion is driving many people away from Jesus Christ.
Laurie, the senior pastor at Harvest Christian Fellowship church in Riverside, California, gave a 35-minute message to over 32,000 people gathered at Angel Stadium in Anaheim for SoCal Harvest 2016 and thousands more watching on webcast.
While the point of the 27th annual three-night worship event organized by Harvest Crusades is to encourage non-Christians and disenfranchised Christians to proclaim or re-proclaim their love for Christ, Laurie stressed that the Bible says the only way to Heaven and the Father is through Christ. more >>

In a podcast with "The Church Boys" last week, Hall explained that despite his health crisis, the roots of his faith runs deep and he's putting his trust in the healing power of Jesus Christ.
"My feelings kept slamming up against something solid in me, and that was the roots of my faith. The fact that I've been in the Word for years. The fact that I've been following Jesus for years, and the roots of my faith were reminding me: God is who He says He is." more >>
