“ ” Revive us in our Involvement “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Philippians 4:13
Church In Action
From the Pastor’s Desk
E praise the Lord for the great opportunities He is granting us to serve Him through our Church ministries. Accordingly, God measures our faithfulness through our involvement in His work. Let us plunge into the summer waves of church participation in our soulwinning, giving, and ministering. Let us bask in the warmth of brotherly love in our fellowship, discipleship, and friendship. Let us rekindle the fires of our commitment in our fervent prayer, Bible reading, and earnest service. Our revival is truly possible through God’s power. Let us then allow ourselves to be productive for His glory. We have the Sunday School ministry that is awaiting for more teachers, the choir that is inviting more members, the lot project that is calling for more givers, the jeepney ministry that is asking for more volunteers, the School for the Deaf and Loving Hands Ministries that are praying for more supporters, and the other various ministries that are welcoming more participants. I commend all of you who are doing your best in fulfilling your God-entrusted roles. You are a great encouragement. Surely, your labour in the Lord is not in vain. I then exhort you to take part in our annual Daily Vacation Bible School, with its preparations, teachers’ training, and workshops, as well as in our National Baptist Youth Conference, with its plans, programs, purposes, and progression. Meanwhile, I appreciate your prayers and support for the success of the graduation of our School for the Deaf, the couples’ fellowship, and the campus evangelistic meeting in La Salle, Dasmariñas, last Friday. Together, let us gear toward another fruitful and memorable genuine holy days this week, for God’s honor through His grace.

“SALAMAT, DIYOS, SA GAWAIN MO SA BUHAY KO PARA SA GAWAIN MO” Beata B. Agustin Iniligtas Mo ako, aking Diyos, sa Iyong biyaya Inihandog Mo Iyong buhay upang ako sa sala’y Iyong mapalaya Ako ngayo’y nagpupuri sa Iyong habag na laging nagpapaligaya At nagnanais na sa gawain ng pag-aakay ng kaluluwa ako’y di magpapabaya! Itinalaga Mo ako, aking Diyos, sa Iyong kalooban Iniwan Mo Iyong kaluwalhatian upang ako sa karumiha’y Iyong masunggaban Ako ngayo’y nagpapasalamat sa Iyong kabanalang sa kasamaa’y laging lumalaban At nananampalatayang sa gawain ng pananalangin ako’y di magliliban! Ibinukod Mo ako, aking Diyos, sa Iyong panig Isinuko Mo Iyong karangyaan upang ako sa Iyong pagpapala’y maantig Ako ngayo’y nagtitiwala sa Iyong pusong laging umiibig At nakikipagtipang sa gawain ng pagtataas ng Iyong pangalan ako’y di manlalamig! Inilagay Mo ako, aking Diyos, sa Iyong simbahan Ibinigay Mo Iyong panahon upang ako sa kamunduha’y Iyong mapuntahan Ako ngayo’y nagpapatotoo sa Iyong katapatang laging maaasahan At nangangakong sa gawain ng pagbibigay ako’y di tatahan! Itinatatag Mo ako, aking Diyos, sa Iyong lakas Ipinaubaya Mo Iyong sarili upang ako sa sa impyerno’y makatakas Ako ngayo’y nagbubunyi sa Iyong awang laging nagpapatikas At nagpapasyang sa gawain ng pagtulong ako’y di lilikas! Iniingatan Mo ako, aking Diyos, sa Iyong katototohanan Inilahad Mo Iyong Salita upang ako sa kamangmanga’y may matutunan Ako ngayo’y nagsusumamo sa Iyong karunungang laging tumatangan At nagsusumikap na sa gawain ng pagtuturo ako’y di tatabangan! Iniilawan Mo ako, aking Diyos, sa Iyong liwanag Inilaan Mo Iyong kaharian upang ako sa paglilingkod ay Iyong matawag Ako ngayo’y nagpapakasaya sa Iyong kadakilaang laging puno ng sinag At nag-aasam na sa gawain ng paglakad sa Espiritu ako’y di mabubuwag!

The jeepney ministry is one of the ways by which we can get more people to come to our church, specially the first time visitors. Many souls are being saved because of this ministry. Our church has 14 operational church vehicles. Every Sunday, we have regular 90-100 jeepney rentals. With the help of our area leaders, this ministry is essential in bringing to church the people who accepted Christ as their personal Savior in our area soul winning. We thank God for our volunteer drivers who faithfully render their service to the Lord. However, we still need more volunteers. If you have a great desire to serve the Lord, why not consider this great privilege? Be a volunteer driver for Jesus Christ.
LOVING HANDS MINISTRIES, INC. (LHMI) ORPHANAGE
In James 1:27, the Bible expresses the essence of pure religion that is undefiled before God. It is visiting the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and keeping oneself unspotted from the world. By God’s grace, our Church is practicing “pure religion” by satisfying the spiritual needs and striving to meet some of the basic necessities of disadvantaged families, especially the children. Our desire, determination and dedication to assist abandoned, neglected, surrendered and orphaned children have become more evident through our Loving Hands Ministries, Inc. (LHMI) which acquired its legal personality from the Securities and Exchange Commission in 1997, its certificate of registration as a social welfare development agency from the Department of Social Welfare and Development in 2002, and its license to operate as a social work agency from DSWD in 2006. By the grace and provisions of God, our LHMI Orphanage aims to attain this goal - “To provide a Christ-centered home of love and truth, where abandoned, surrendered and orphaned children are cared for and reared in a biblical way toward their optimum development to become productive members of the society.” Such goal is expected to be reached through these objectives: 1.To give children the opportunities to increase in wisdom, and stature and in favor with God and man, following the example of Jesus Christ’s childhood of holistic growth and development (Luke 2:52). a. To provide their physiological needs b. To lead them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to guide them to grow in the faith (Proverbs 22:6) c. To nurture their intellectual and mental capabilities through academic and educational services d. To assist them in their social and emotional maturity 2.To prepare the children for reintegration, foster care and/or adoption by families that are willing: a. To bring them up in the loving nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4) b. To raise them in God’s instruction (Colossians 3:20-21).

“God has given us two hands-one to receive with and the other to give with. We are not cisterns made for hoarding; we are channels made for sharing.” - Graham
Ayon sa Biblia, Iisa Lamang ang Daan Patungong Langit!
ng 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 impierno. Magtiwala ka kay Hesus ngayon! (Roma 6:23) “Kung ipahahayag ng iyong bibig na si Hesus ay Panginoon at mananam-palataya 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. Talikuran mo ang iyong mga kasalanan (magsisi). 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 ang dugo ni Hesus at Siya ay namatay sa krus para sa akin. Tinatalikuran ko na po ang 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.
