- [December 6, 2015] The WORD: God’s Message Made Clear in the Son
Behind every celebration is a group of people who have the same goal in their minds and hearts: mark a special milestone in their lives. Our Senior Pastor has called some church members to take part in planing for the 40th Anniversary. The team is led by Sis. Wendy Engcoy who works hand in hand with Hanilette Lema, Chester Lema, GJ Engcoy, Ardie Balderrama, Richard Samellano, Reah Padla, Misty Dado, Ptr. Toffer Tayco, Ptr. Lemuel Adeser, and the couple Pastor Jules and Rachel Pranoto who were recently called to serve in Indonesia.
Pray that God will give His wisdom to the 4D+ Team as they continue to plan for the grand celebration happening in January 2016.
Can one be intimate with God? Yes, because you are created for this purpose. To be intimate with Him is to have an unhindered fellowship with God, walking daily with Him, and pursuing passionately His presence.
Jesus led us to intimacy with the Father. He reconciled us, removed our sins, and restored us back to a right position. Without Christ, intimacy with God is impossible. Knowing all this is not enough. One must have an experience to fully understand the requisites for intimacy. ‘Being Intimate with God’ or BIG Retreats are held from time to time to teach new followers what it means to experience God and break free from a hurtful past. Learn about Inner Heal- ing, Deliverance, Victorious Christian Living, Freedom in Christ, and Being Filled with the Holy Spirit.
Join our next ‘BIG Retreat’ this November 18-19, 2015. It’s two full days of learning about intimacy with the Father. Be filled with the Holy Spirit and discover what it means to really experience God.
Water baptism is commanded in the Scriptures. Everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and repents of his sins are to be baptized. To be immersed in water is to declare to the world you have died with Christ and have been raised with Him.
This marks that start of one’s walkin the newness of life. The Good News is not to be kept secret so go public about your faith in Jesus. It’s the next step for everyone who has decided to follow Him. Our church regularly holds Water Baptism as a divine ordinance. If you know in your heart that you are ready to tell the world about your commitment, join the next Water Baptism schedule. Be baptized and start your Christian walk.
