O God be the glory! Our 34th Anniversary event concludes today with another victory that God has given us! I rejoice to see the zeal of the area leaders, involvement and sacrifices of the members and Gospel teams, the cooperation of the frontliners, and the humility in prayer of everyone who called unto God. All of those resulted in the manifestation of God’s power in our 2-Sunday Anniversary-occasions where thousands were able to come to church, felt that our church cares, heard the Gospel, and got saved! It is definitely true that we must just do our job of bringing the materials in, and God will build this church through people. As we enjoy our “Year of Continuing” this 2013, let me challenge you to love God more and let Him put a love in our hearts to serve Him better. We have more people to reach, more projects to accomplish and more blessings ahead! Join us as we journey to the 35th Year of our church, and let us get excited in experiencing how God will continue to build and bless our church! I, together with my family, want to thank every family and every individual member of this church whose love for God and His church is truly evident. Praise the Lord for your faithfulness and may we, by His grace continue in our love and service to Him while we can and until He allows us to! There have been tough times for all of us, but I appreciate you in allowing me to pastor you and lead you in doing God’s will for your lives. We love you in the Lord!

Any institution should always be in a positive continuum. As we may this quick lookback inspire us all the more
1997 construction of our present-day main auditorium
Dr. Ed encouraged the members to continue building by faith amidst oppositions. It was during this year that a new three-storey building with a mezzanine and roof deck, currently called the “New Building,” was started on two adjoining lots purchased the previous year. The average of 23 weekly baptisms was recorded. The Baptist Heritage Bible Seminary became Baptist Heritage Bible College. A four-door apartment was also bought which now houses the church staff and the orphanage.
CBBC reached its highest average attendance record of 1,800 during this year. Though only 50% of the “New Building” was completed, the auditorium became usable for the church’s 19th Anniversary. By the end of the year, the Church had a total record of 7,102 first time visitors and 1,477 baptisms.
With two decades of God’s faithfulness, the Church prayed to have 3,000 first time visitors (FTVs) on its 20th anniversary and by God’s grace, 3,523 came. The “area soulwinning” set-up became more extensive in evangelism and discipleship. Three new churches were established, three new soulwinning areas were added, and two missions were started. CBBC also held its 1st National Baptist Youth Convention and more than 500 Baptist youth from different churches all over the Philippines came. Since then, CBBC has been annually hosting the event and many Baptist young people are being challenged, changed, and called into full time service.
1999 20th Anniversary reached 3,523 FTVs
The Church aimed for 5,000 FTVs on its anniversary. With much faith, prayer and hard work, God gave 5,094. The “New Building” was finally completed. When the Church moved to the new auditorium, it hit the mark of an average attendance of 2,000. New ministries were started which grew spiritually and numerically.
CBBC reached an average attendance of 2,300. On its 22nd anniversary, it gathered 7,433 people. A total of 10,800 FTVs was recorded during this year. Meanwhile, the Church accommodated more than 400 pastors and preachers from all over the country in the Pastors’ College hosted by Dr. Clarence Sexton together with his Crown College staff and students.
Fired by the success of the previous years, Dr. Ed challenged the Church to reach 10,000 in attendance for the anniversary. Later, he announced that God could help them reach 12,000 instead. By the grace and power of God, 15,383 people were present on that anniversary Sunday! 2003 24th Anniversary Victory Night
The Church grew to an average of 2,250 in its attendance. On its 24th anniversary, CBBC aimed for 16,000 attendees, but a total of 16,091 came for the two consecutive services in just one Sunday. The weekly baptisms have reached 35. The Church also purchased a new property--a four-door apartment--that now serves as the College Ladies and Academy Staff ’s Dormitory.
CBBC feasted on 25 years of God’s faithfulness. CBBC’s Silver anniversary had a grand total of more than 30,000 visitors in a month-long, five-Sunday evangelistic celebration. The average attendance was 2,000. Total number of FTVs reached 35, 443 and the total number of baptisms was 1,282.

On the first week of this year, the Church hosted the monumental Fresh Start Pastors’ and Workers’ Conference. An evangelistic service on the last night brought an estimated 18,000 visitors flooding the auditoriums, classrooms and the subdivision street. This encouraged many Pastors and Preachers to do fervent soulwinning in their respective church areas. A two-storey house formerly rented as the College Men’s Dormitory was also acquired. The “Seven-Stage Discipleship Program” was launched to feed spiritually the growing number of converts more systematically. The Anniversary attendance was 15,990. The average attendance was 2,214.

Hernandez Building,” in memory of Pastor Fortunato Hernandez, the faithful “Filipino Baptist Patriarch” and the father-in-law of Dr. Ed. Likewise, the edifice which used to be the Pastor’s house in front of the New Building has been under renovation for a three-story building that will serve as an extension of the CBBC Auditorium.

CBBC celebrated its 29th Anniversary with 10,265 FTVs surpassing its goal of 10,000. In March, a team of young people from Cleveland Baptist Church visiting CBBC for a mission trip had good reports of being challenged and revived for the Lord’s vineyard. In September, emphasis was put on winning the lost to Christ as CBBC held its Stewardship Conference Soulwinning Clinic.

2011 CIW Outreach 8th Anniversary
The very first day of the New Year was welcomed with a Church Service, setting the mood to be attuned more than ever to God. The year’s challenge and theme was for each individual in the church family to be “Resolved to Involve.” Over the years, the Lord has made a thriving Church out of CBBC and God’s people were encouraged to have an attitude of thankfulness that is manifested by involving in God’s eternal work. The Pastor has emphasized more than ever the need for equipping the ministry workers by hosting the National Pastors and Workers Conference with the theme “Back to Basic.” The year was also greeted with divided Sunday School classes for the Adults, and the exclusive evening Sunday School fellowships. This was followed by instilling Bible-based principles for couples through a Dinner-Fellowship during Pastor Ed and Ma’am Dhel’s wedding anniversary. The weeks and services before the 33rd Anniversary Sundays were devoted to prayers and revival meetings. We praise God for another fruitful year of involvement! There was great rejoicing in heaven as we witnessed around 8000 precious First Time 2012 Visitors who filled CBBC facilities during the Anniversary Sundays on FebruPastors & ary 19 and 26 to hear the true Gospel that only Jesus saves. The year witnessed Workers' the accomplishment of God in making a thriving CBBC. The ministry arms Conference and mission works are growing by God’s grace. Remote foreign missions and outreaches, Moral Recovery Programs in PNPA and CIW, and various frontiers are gaining stability and growth spiritually. The program for Baptist Youth Fundamentalist has given an avenue for doctrinal emphasis on the next generation. The year has launched “Couples Revival” in an effort to boost the homebuilders for godly parenting and relationship build¬ing. With the eventful flurry of activities, 2012 has been a toiling, triumphing and thriving year for the Church family.
It is definitely God’s abiding presence that CBBC continues to be an emblem of God’s Great Glory. For thirty-four years, the CBBC as a church family has experienced the product of fulfilled vision many times. God’s people are inspired to be a part of something great for the souls of men, and for the cause of Christ. This year is a year of continuing...continuing in cooperation and not on competition; continuing in consecration and not in complacency, and continuing in confirming and not in complaining. As of this writing, it is hoped that the two Anniversary Sundays would have yielded over 10,000 professions of faith in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ…emphasizing that the goal is not merely reaching a specific number of converts and first time visitors but essentially for the souls of men. There has been great rejoicing in heaven over souls that got saved and were ministered to. Members are challenged to keep the fire burning and to serve faithfully in the year ahead! Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. – Ephesians 3:21. May the Lord be magnified and glorified in all we do. Praise God for the power to Continue on…

Ang sabi ni Hesus, “Ako ang daan, ang katotohanan, at ang buhay: walang makapupunta sa Ama kundi sa pamamagitan ko.” Juan 14:6 Wala nang iba pang makapagliligtas sa iyo mula sa impiyerno. Magtiwala ka kay Hesus ngayon! Roma 6:23 “Kung ipahahayag ng iyong bibig na si Hesus ay Panginoon at mananampalataya ka nang buong puso na Siya’y muling binuhay ng Diyos, ikaw ay maliligtas”. Roma 10:9 1. Aminin mo na ikaw ay isang makasalanan. Roma 3:10 2. Magsisi ka sa iyong kasalanan. Gawa 17:30 3. Manampalataya ka na si Kristo Hesus ay namatay para sa iyo, nalibing at nabuhay namagmuli. Roma 10:9-10 4. Sa pamamagitan ng panalangin, tanggapin mo si Hesus sa iyong puso bilang iyong Tagapagligtas. Roma 10:13 Manalangin ka ng ganito: Panginoon, ako po ay isang makasalanan at nangangailangan ng kapatawaran. Nanampalataya po ako na nadanak ng dugo ni Hesus at Siya ay namatay sa krus para sa akin. Nagsisisi po ako sa aking mga kasalanan. Tinatanggap ko po si Kristo Hesus sa aking puso bilang aking Tagapagligtas. Amen. "Kung tinanggap mo si Hesus bilang iyong Tagapagligtas, ito na ang simula ng iyong bagong buhay kay Kristo." Roma 8:1 Ngayon: 1. Basahin mo ang iyong Biblia araw-araw upang makilala pa ng lubusan si Kristo Hesus. 2. Makipag-usap ka sa Diyos sa panalangin araw-araw. 3. Manambahan ka sa isang simbahan na pinapangaral si Kristo at ang Biblia ang tanging pamantayan. 4. Ibahagi sa iba si Kristo Hesus.
