From the Pastor’s Desk
praise God for another busy week He gave our Church. As you can see, our extension building is improving. Classrooms are being built on the second floor. Also, the second batch of our Daily Vacation Bible School was held this week by 12 areas. Still with the theme “Discovering the Awesome Power of God,” the Lord proved it again by saving the souls of precious children and their parents and guardians as well. To God be the glory for all the results of this DVBS. I believe that we pleased God again with this endeavor because we have accomplished His desire, which is to bring people to His saving grace, and to teach us to enjoy serving Him. Your involvement in this ministry will surely be rewarded. I am privileged to pastor a church that is eager to serve God. He has proven again that He can use anybody as long as that person has a love for God and for the souls. Yet, our ministry is not yet done. Continue to help your area leader and fellow workers in visiting these children’s families, encouraging them to come to church and guiding them in their spiritual growth. As we approach the month of June, let me encourage you to keep on being a faithful child of God and member of the Church. Instead of letting the pressures of life discourage us, let us prove to this world that God is real! Let us make our family be a living testimony of His grace. That can happen if we allow the Word of God and our church to motivate us and inspire us to live for Him. Your presence today in church is a blessing!

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.
