Church In Action
From the Pastor’s Desk
OD is always worthy of our best! He did His best, and is always doing His best for us. He gave His only begotten Son to redeem us from sin’s condemnation. Such is His best act to prove His love to us. His Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ gave Himself to grant us eternal life. Such is His best gift to manifest His compassion to us. What we can do is to live for Him, giving our all to Him. Such is the best that we can do to thank and appreciate Him. Despite the fury of Typhoon Basyang that brought our province into a state of calamity, our God is still faithful in giving us the best protection that we need. Along with it, we have His peace, His provision, and His presence. What really matters most is our steadfast faith in Him, which is the best that we can show. Meanwhile, we give God the glory for the victorious start of our work in Singapore last Sunday. The Lord gave us an attendance of 26, with five first time visitors. Let us support our new work with our prayers. Likewise, let us continue doing God’s will by participating in our church program and activities, like our Sunday worship services, regular Bible studies, area soulwinning and visitation, discipleship sessions, Wednesday prayer meeting, and ministry involvements. Moreover, let us keep on strengthening our healthy relationship with the Lord, with our loved ones, and with our brethren through the unconditional love of God.

“WE THANK YOU, GOD, FOR YOUR OFFERED FELLOWSHIP” Beata B. Agustin
You’re our Creator, and we’re Your creation Thanks for reaching down to us for our salvation To offer us Your fellowship of sweet heaven’s jubilation… Now, we’re heading toward Your set glorious transformation. You’re our Potter, and we’re Your clay Thanks for designing us according to Your way To shape us up by Your fellowship we can experience everyday… Now, we’re living as vessels that honor You while in Your plan we stay. You’re our Master, and we’re Your servants Thanks for calling us by Your immutable covenants To include us in Your fellowship along Your reward-grants… Now, we’re laboring with contentment against worldliness and vanity-wants. You’re our Head, and we’re Your body Thanks for cleansing us from sinfulness’ malady To perfect us in Your fellowship with Your truth so sturdy… Now, we’re striving to be holy as we wait for Your coming, ever ready.
You’re our Leader, and we’re Your followers Thanks for enabling us to obey You and Your orders To bring us into Your fellowship upward maturity towers… Now, we’re living by faith with the conviction to be biblical defenders. You’re our Vine and we’re Your branches Thanks for upholding us midst stormy glitches To nurture us with Your fellowship that spiritually enriches… Now, we’re bearing fruits by Your love, grace and mercy’s touches. You’re our Shepherd and we’re Your sheep Thanks for delivering us out from death-valley’s deep To carry us to Your fellowship where our hearts You safely keep… Now, we’re dwelling in Your will, trusting You from the time we awake till we sleep.

Bro. Rodel Pagkatipunan In Area 25, we have 75 regular attendees, an average of 5 first time visitors and 2 baptisms weekly. We also use 4 vehicles every Sunday to fetch visitors, new converts, and members. It is because of the committed members who faithfully support and join our area soulwinning and other area activities. Moreover, we are blessed with area members who have surrendered their lives to be ushers, Sunday School teachers, traffic enforcers, and most specially to be soulwinners. Every Thursday, we conduct Area soulwinning at 5 pm, followed by our Area Bible Study at 6:30 pm, including our prayer time until 8:30 pm. In the said Bible study, we have an average attendance of 25. The fathers in the Area are assigned to give exhortations from the Word of God. The members are encouraged to bring visitors to the Bible Study Center as well as to Sunday services. We praise and thank God for the opportunity He has given to our Area to have a regular Bible Study at the Bulihan Municipal Jail (BJMP). Also, our Area is privileged to hold regularly a Bible Study for the Senior Citizens (Club 20). Our aim is not just to reach them but also their loved ones. By God’s grace, we are striving to reach our Area goals as we are labouring in the fulfilment of the Great Commission. We are praying to have a Campus Ministry, as well as extension classes in every phase, and to reach 100 in attendance every Sunday. Truly, God is good all the time. Area 25 is experiencing God’s power, grace, and blessing through the participation of the Area members. TO GOD BE THE GLORY! ACTS 29 | JULY 18 | PAGE 05

“Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. It is so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times.” - Martin Luther
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.
