In his last sermon prior to the Passover, Gary Smith covers how Jesus, preexisting as god along with God the Father, became human to pay for our sins. He focuses on the fact that in doing this Jesus made it possible for us to have an eternal relationship with Him and God the Father.
Gary Smith was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but spent most of his youth in the Pasadena, California area. He graduated from Ambassador College in 1976 and he and his wife, Liz, moved to Peoria, Illinois. For the next six years he worked as a nursing home administrator in Illinois, Ohio, and Texas.
