84 Precious Words (expanded)

From April 29 to May 10, the church in Irvine had a local perfecting conference in which it covered 72 precious words that define and describe our personal relationship and fellowship with the Lord. The 72 precious words were later expanded to 84 words by brother Minoru Chen.

Over the weeks to come, the church will dive deeper into these 72 words–one word per week–to allow these words to enrich our personal pursuit of the Lord. The Word of the Week will be posted along with the key verses, footnotes, hymns, and ministry excerpts:
