The prosperity of a country depends, not only on the abundance of its revenues, nor on the strength of its fortifications, nor on the beauty of its public buildings, but it consists in the number of its men of enlightenment and character.
T is truly a blessing to know and serve God! Another month has already passed, and we thank God for letting us experience His faithfulness prevailing over our condition. We also praise Him that though we have not been faithful, He still provides us a new month and new opportunity to see His goodness and develop our service to Him! I am excited as we dwell on the theme “Victorious Christian Life through our Fruitfulness” for this month of October. Christianity is not just being saved and just enjoying the beneﬁts of salvation. There is more to it. We should be bearing fruits. Every time God will work in a person’s life, He expects that there will be a result and it should be evident. We have never truly experienced a victorious Christian life unless we bear fruits. The fruit may be a change in attitude, another Christian, or a proof of spiritual growth in our lives. Fruitfulness should be every believer’s challenge and goal. God’s mighty works in us should not be in vain. May we be encouraged this month to be fruitful for His glory! Our church is doing its best to motivate us to be fruitful. Let us take advantage of it! We must allow God’s Word to make us closer to Him and desire more to grow and be useful. Salvation is more enjoyable if it will be fruitful. It has been a stormy weather the past few days. I pray that every member would be in a safe condition, and that it would not hinder our church attendance. Have a great Sunday! I love you in the Lord!

The following statistics on church attendance is taken by the Statistical Abstract of the United States in May 1994. Americans who claim membership in a congregation: 69% Percent who attend worship services in a given week: 40% These ﬁgures even get lower & lower for the past 16 years. JUST THINK ABOUT IT! If this happened to America, a nation that was founded on God's Word, it is absolutely not impossible for that to happen here in the Philippines, specially among fundamental Baptist churches. Let us always be reminded of what the Bible says in Hebrews 10:25, "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching." Brethren, we should not allow empty pews in our church services. We should ﬁll them up by bringing visitors and by being consistent in our church attendance.

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 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.
