What is the kingdom?

The kingdom of God is the rule and reign of King Jesus that begins in our hearts.

In the entirety of the four Gospels, no topic is spoken of more often by Jesus than the Kingdom. Through parable and demonstration, Jesus sought to give His followers a glimpse into His glorious Kingdom where all things are made right. To be a follower of Jesus, is to be a citizen of the greatest kingdom in the history of time and space!

Scripture Memory Verses: Luke 17:20-21, Romans 14:16-17, Matthew 6:33, Matthew 13:44-46
