Father Abraham’s Sons

Muslims, Jews, and Christians have a legitimate claim to be Father Abraham’s sons and daughters. While it is a wonderful blessing to hold common genes and traditions with Father Abraham, it is a spiritual life of faith, submission, and action which qualifies us to claim that we are Father Abraham’s sons and daughters.

Birthday Of The King Concert


Ever heard a mature baritone voice in a 16-year-old who thought he couldn’t sing when he joined the choir two years ago?  Listen to the first solo.
