Weekly Update Letter

Hello everyone,

From an uncomfortable prison cell many years ago, Paul wrote: “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:11-13).

The Greek word “content” is related to sufficiency. Paul had learned the deep truths of the sufficiency of God. He was grounded in the sufficiency of God. And no change in his circumstances could keep him from experiencing the abundance of God.

Would you be able to say right now, “I lack nothing”? The more we are able to declare that by faith, the more we too will know the complete sufficiency of God. And we can do this today through Christ who gives us strength!

We will continue this Sunday with the same platform we have been using for our message. I encourage all of you to join us at this link at 10:30 AM. After this, the message will be posted on our website.

The weekly women’s conference call continues on Thursdays at 6:15 PM on Zoom. Magdalena has tried to reach out to as many women as possible with the information, but if you have any questions, please email her at mvtullar@centurylink.net.

I have a new suggested memorization verse for you this month:

Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. 25 What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?” – Luke 9:23-25

I am hopeful that we will be able to meet again together soon! And I pray that when we do we will have a new appreciation for being together as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Statement of Faith

We Believe:Our Statement of Faith

Scripture

  • The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God.
  • The Bible is the ultimate, complete and eternal source of knowledge about God and the definitive guide for our daily lives.

God

  • There is only one God, existing in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is self-existent, eternal, unchanging, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, holy, righteous and loving.
  • God created the universe from nothing and He is the sovereign ruler over His creation.

Man

  • Man is a physical and spiritual being (composed of spirit, soul and body), who was created in God’s image. However, because of sin, man has lost his fellowship with God and is destined to die.

Grace

  • Grace is the unmerited, undeserved love of God manifested in Jesus Christ. Jesus, who is fully God and fully man, was sent by God the Father to save mankind from slavery to sin. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, suffered and died as an atoning sacrifice for all sins, physically rose from the dead and will one day return to deliver His followers and judge the world. Faith in Jesus Christ is the only means by which mankind can escape judgement, separation from God and eternal damnation.

Church

  • The Church is ordained by God, headed by Jesus Christ and composed of all true believers from Pentecost to the Rapture. The Church is also referred to as the “Bride” or the “Body” of Christ. Members of the Church organize local churches for worship, for fellowship, for the administration of the sacraments (primarily baptism & the Lord’s supper), for spiritual growth and support and for evangelizing the world.
