"I MUST SHOW THE IMPORTANCE OF A LOCAL CHURCH THROUGH MY INVOLVEMENT."
PLACE OF INVOLVEMENT
A blessed Sunday to everyone! As we continue to prepare for our Anniversary Sundays through our consecutive revival services, I pray that we really allow God to send revival in our hearts, in our homes and in us as a church family. Revival does not happen by accident; it comes to a willing person desiring for God to work in him and through him. That is why I am joyful that I pastor such a group of people. You have more opportunities this week as we have our 2 nights Revival, full blast invitations in our respective areas and our motorcade on Saturday. As our big event approaches, I challenge you to involve more, sacriﬁce more, and serve more. Make sure you pray hard as you invite your friends, neighbors, ofﬁce mates, and relatives. I am excited to see souls saved and hear how God will use us individually through this occasion. Let us use this event to show God how we thank Him for putting us in this church where His grace is evident and His name is magniﬁed.
Sunday School Outline The Right Procedure for Involvement Nehemiah 9:1-7 ; 31-37 I. The right procedure for involvement is through the acknowledgement of the truth. A. God’s people must acknowledge the authority of His eternal word. B. God’s people must admit that they are wrong and God is always right. II. The right procedure for involvement is through the altar call. A. The altar of God is the best place to make commitment for involvement. B. The altar of God is the best place to show that God has moved our hearts. C. The altar of God is the best place to say to God how much we thank Him for the things He has done in our lives. III. The right procedure for involvement is through amendment (correction) of sinful ways. A. God’s people must amend their ways according to God’s goodness. B. God’s people must amend their ways by taking heed to God’s ways. IV. The right procedure for involvement is through the appropriation (setting) of one’s life for the Lord. A. Giving of self to the Lord is one of the keys for proper involvement. B. Giving of self to the Lord must be sealed by a promised covenant with Him.

OW interested are we in praying to the Lord and truly worshipping His Holy Name? How interested are we in growing in God's truth and knowing Him deeply? How interested are we in gaining a greater knowledge and understanding of His Word? And just how interested are we in sharing those precious things with the dying world around us? Let's get serious about getting ourselves revived! The world needs to see us ﬂourishing! There's so much work to be done!
EVIVAL is an ongoing transformation of our hearts to be constantly moved by the Spirit of God. We need to be daily breaking up our fallow ground, those places in our
hearts which we've allowed to grow hard. How? We have to ask ﬁrst the Lord to reveal those hard places, pray that He would forgive us and ask Him to heal all our rough edges that we might be soft before Him and sensitive to His leading. Only then will we be changed and be in a place where we can contribute to revival around us.
F I were to faint, stop breathing, or if my heart were to stop pumping, my hope is that someone would revive me. If I am not revived, it will be fatal to my existence. My normal state of operation is upright, breathing, and heart pumping. The normal Christian life is: • Living holy • Being faithful • Being a soulwinner • Hav-
ing peace and contentment • Experiencing joy and happiness • Showing obedience and submission • Enjoying church attendance and prayer • Giving and serving • Bible reading When there is a departure from the norm, that is when revival is needed! When we faint, backslide, or fall into sin, that is when revival is needed to return to the normal state of operation!
EVIVALS are a spiritually necessary working of the Holy Spirit in the life of a church and its members. Revivals are used of God to awaken the saints, strengthen the things that remain, and “resurrect” some things that may have died.
Preaching/music CDs & invitations are available @ the ushers' table after the service.
Let us all involve in our scheduled grand follow-up and visitation on February 17 (Friday), and Motorcade on February 18 (Saturday) for the success of our Anniversary month. OUR GOAL-10,000 VISITORS • Bring light-colored cartolinas. • Give your white T-shirts to your area leaders for printing (P30 only). • Each division will have its route! • Get excited! • Meeting place for each division: Division A - Post Ofﬁce Pacita Division B - Puregold San Pedro Division C - Caltex Canlalay Division D - Caltex Tagapo Division E - Puregold GMA • Converging Point: Gateway San Pedro
GET READY TO MAKE IT HAPPEN! There is a big difference between being ready to SEE it happen and being ready to MAKE it happen. May everyone of us make things happen. Get ready for dedication. Everything will begin from the attitude of the heart. Yes, that is dedication. Dedicate your life that you will be a part of this historic event for the glory of God! Get ready for supplication. May everyone of us knock on Heaven's doors through fervent prayer that God will bring the people in, save them, and create a big revival in our midst. Get ready for action. Don't just watch what will happen, but rather make things happen! Participate in all activities. Win souls! Invite people! Use all means to bring people to our church!
LET US GET READY, CBBC!
PAKIKIBAHAGI SA SIMBAHAN NG DIYOS Beata Agustin
Pakikibahagi sa simbahan ng Diyos ay makabuluhang panawagan Para sa ating tinubos ni Kristo at nagmamay-ari ng tiyak na kaligtasan Ito’y ating pakinggan na walang pag-aatubili’t pag-aalinlangan… Gawain ng Diyos ay tunay ngang paglaanan ng ating lakas at kasipagan Dahil di matutumbasan ang mahalaga nitong kahihinatnan. Pakikibahagi sa simbahan ng Diyos ay makatuwiraang hamon Para sa ating minamahal ni Kristo at kinakalinga Niya sa lahat ng pagkakataon Ito’y ating tanggapin na walang pag-aagam-agam at pagsasayang ng panahon… Gawain ng Diyos ay tunay ngang harapin na katapatan sa pagtulong ang ating tuon Dahil di mapupugnaw ang maalab nitong pag-aakay ng kaluluwa para sa Panginoon. Pakikibahagi sa simbahan ng Diyos ay magandang patotoo Para sa ating pinatawad ni Kristo at nililinis ng makapangyarihan Niyang dugo Ito’y ating ipagpatuloy na walang pagbabalatkayo… Gawain ng Diyos ay tunay ngang kakitaan ng ating pagmamalasakit sa tao Dahil di malilinlang ang maayos nitong hangad mula sa dalisay na puso. Pakikibahagi sa simbahan ng Diyos ay mabuting pakikipag-isa Para sa ating pinawalang-sala ni Kristo at sa Kanyang simbahan ay pinagsama-sama Ito’y ating pag-ibayuhin na walang pagkukunwaring nagdudulot ng pagkabalisa… Gawain ng Diyos ay tunay ngang itaguyod na pag-ibig sa kapatid ang ating ipadama Dahil di matitinag ang malakas nitong bigkis na sa Espiritu umaasa. Pakikibahagi sa simbahan ng Diyos ay masidhing layunin Para sa ating hinirang ni Kristo at ginawaran ng dakila Niyang tagubilin Ito’y ating isakatuparan na walang pansariling adhikain…. Gawain ng Diyos ay tunay ngang isulong at sa panalangi’y ating pagyamanin Dahil di madadaig ang matagumpay nitong pagyabong na sa langit ay kikilalanin. Pakikibahagi sa simbahan ng Diyos ay masayang pagkilos Para sa ating binabago ni Kristo at ginagabayan Niya nang lubos Ito’y ating pagbutihin na walang halong duda sa Hari at sa Kanyang utos… Gawain ng Diyos ay tunay ngang hatakin sa ating pagsisikap na taos Dahil di mapipigil ang maluwalhati nitong pagtatapos na sa pananampalataya nakagapos. Pakikibahagi sa gawain ng Diyos ay mabungang pagsunod Para sa ating tinuturuan ni Kristo at sa pangangaral ng Kanyang salita’y ibinukod Ito nga’y ating ipahayag na walang pagtalikod sa ipinangakong paglilingkod… Gawain ng Diyos ay tunay ngang patibayin habang ginagapi ang kaaway na sumusugod Dahil di mayayanig ang matiwasay nitong pagpupuri upang ang Panginoon ay malugod.
testimonies of Joyful Involvement
from the Young at Hearts' Sunday School Class We praise God for encouraging, enabling and empowering us to involve in His work through our church. We thank Him likewise for our brethren who are resolved to involve by His grace, through His leading, and for His glory. May their testimonies inspire us to do our part in the fulﬁllment of the Great Commission.
Bro. Roberto and Sis. Susan Marasigan
I thank God for choosing me as one of the heirs of His kingdom when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour on May 13, 2008. Since I gladly received God’s word, I was baptized on that same day here in CBBC. I can say that I am the fruit of my wife’s fervent prayer and steadfast faith in the Lord. My wife got saved and was baptized on September 16, 1990 in a Baptist Church, and her conversion offended me, which caused me to persecute her. In 2005, she was invited by her sister, Sis. Myrna Quion, to worship the Lord here in CBBC, and in 2006, she transferred her membership. I praise God that my wife continued attending church services despite my oppositions, warnings and threatenings as an unbelieving husband then. Her regular church attendance and consistent area Bible study participation gave her revival and made her trust in God all the more to work a miracle in my life. God’s miracle worked in me as I witnessed my wife’s faithfulness in serving God and in encouraging me to come to church with her. God has rewarded her obedience to Him and her love for my soul. Now, my wife and I, together with our three children, are joyfully attending church services. We are really blessed with the programs of this Church, and are grateful to have the best Pastor. By the grace of God, I am striving to follow the Lord through my church involvement, especially in the ushering ministry which I joined in since August 2010. My wife is enjoying her ministry in the Cradle Roll department of our Children’s Sunday School. I truly thank God for all His blessings, and it is my prayer that He will extend our strength in serving Him together that we “…might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” Colossians 1:10. To God be the glory!
Bro. Leonardo and Sis. Annie Lacsina We praise and thank the Lord for His greatness and for His marvellous work in our family. We thank Him also for allowing us to be a part of this great Church, and for giving us Dr. Ed Laurena as our Pastor and spiritual leader. Being members of this Church since 1998, we are very much privileged to be fed by the Word of God regularly. We likewise thank the Lord for the people whom God uses to encourage us. It is also a blessing that God still uses me in the ushering ministry, and my wife will be starting in the Sunday School ministry. By God’s grace, we hope and pray that God will continue to use every member of our family in His great work. To God be the glory!

Baptist Youth Fundamentalist @ 1:30 PM Maaari Mong Matiyak ang Langit 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.
