About Pastor Kevin Maples
Dr. Maples is committed to preaching the inspired word of God. It is through God's Word that we learn of Christ's death on the cross and the life that He offers us. Some will ask, "Why is his ministry called 'Living with the Cross?'" The answer: because that is the only way you can
truly live is through accepting what Jesus did for you on the cross.
