Promises of God

Did you know God makes over a thousand promises in the Bible? Although earthly promises are often easily broken, God's promises never fail. When we put our faith in God and trust what he done for us, instead of trusting in our own abilities, we become his children. God, being a good and loving Father, enjoys giving us gifts. His promises are exactly that - a gift, and we can live from them in confidence. What God has promised, he will accomplish.

Below are a few of God's promises specifically selected to remind you of God’s love and faithfulness. We encourage you to bookmark this page, so you can return to it easily, whenever you need a reminder of God's promises. It is our prayer they will give you hope each time you read them.
