In establishing the government of our country, our founding fathers wisely determined they did not want a king. They did not want one person wielding authority. Their ingenious system of a “separation of powers” among three equal branches of government has served our country well for almost 250 years. However, with our nation’s system of representative democracy and the emphasis on the importance of the voice of the citizen and the individual, we well may have lost an understanding and appreciation for what it means when we say that God is SOVEREIGN – that He is King and ruler over all things and that He exercises PROVIDENCE over all His creation. These are important words of our faith as we consider the very nature of God and how He works in our world and in our lives.

This was the topic of this week's Bible study at the West Virginia state capitol as we continue a series on "Great Words of the Faith". You can find a copy here.

Please pray for our ongoing ministry as we seek to minister to leaders and staff in the capitol and around the state.
