Why Jesus Walked on Water
Brit Railston

In this message we’ll look at the entire reason Jesus walked on water to prove to the 12 disciples that He was the Son of God and not just some physical messiah. In the Kingdom of God, our primary job will be to do the same to those we serve as kings and priests.
