Guided By Him contains many life-changing Step Forward ideas, but GBH is lighter and easier for today’s busy lifestyle.

Statement of Faith

We believe that God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one.  We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that we are saved by God’s grace because of what Christ did for us on the cross, not by our works. We believe that through his grace, God gives us the power to do anything we need to doincluding losing the weight and worries that weigh us down.
