The Unbroken Men's Conference was held last weekend in our Family Life Center. The rest of the church were blessed with Pastor Wintley Phipps' sermon, and Neville Peter and Silvia Rambaran's special musical renditions. 

One Foundation Sermon Recap

This past Sabbath we were blessed by a sermon from Pastor Wintley Phipps. He preached on Jesus being the foundation of our faith (1 Corinthians 3:11). His message can be summed up by 4 points:
  1. The very essence of the gospel is the restoration of the image and character of God in man
  2. If the truths we believe do not transform our character, they are of no value to us.
  3. Christianity without Christ-like character is a danger to the world because it gives the world a false idea of who God is. We cannot be intermittent Christians.
  4.  The preeminent purpose of the church is becoming like the character of Jesus. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly produced in his people, then He will come.
Being Christ-like is definitely easier said than done, but remember that He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. This week as the challenges of life come (whether they be at work, home, school, or even church), seek God in those difficult moments and pray that He directs your words and actions.

2 Corinthians 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.

Episode 3 of Season 1 of our online Forum aired last Thursday. They discussed, "Are churches relevant in their communities?" They are still working out the kinks and learning as they go, with God. They are asking you to pray for this program and that it can continue to be used by God for His will. Please also like, share and comment on the videos. By doing so, the algorithms would help show content like these to more people within and outside your sphere of influence.
