Jesus is our purifier, perfecter of our Faith

Looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

† We are all sinners but only perfect or sinless man can have eternal life and enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
