“I Know I’ll Be There”

Karen Peck & New River have inspired many lives with their outstanding songs. “I Know I’ll Be There,” written by Karen Peck Gooch, Dave Clark, and Wayne Haun is no exception to that.

The song is an absolute declaration of faith and acceptance of God’s promises. That the only Christian’s destination afterlife is in heaven with Christ.

Here is a touching message from Karen:

“The greatest gift that you can give to your children, and for those listening that have grandchildren, is…give them that assurance that you know Jesus and that you’re going to be in heaven when this life is over.” Invite them – no, lovingly urge them in no uncertain terms – to be sure they, too, accept (or have accepted) Christ so that they’ll see you again there.”
