Emotional Health

New Life Pentecostals want to offer as much help as possible to those who are suffering. Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world and there are many situations in which people find themselves. While we firmly believe in God’s healing power, all of us need help from time to time to gain our footing and set us straight once again. It’s our desire to see every person delivered from the vices of the enemy. Most of these books are available on Amazon.
