"Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue." 2 Peter 1:5
Virtue is a lost art in our contemporary culture. The world twists virtue into tolerance and acceptance of ungodly ideas and behaviors. The Bible counters these lies by teaching us to cultivate godly virtues as his chosen people. The more diligently we pursue virtue, the greater impact we can have for Christ. This year at Family Camp, challenge your faith as we teach on "Four Life-Changing Virtues."
