WE BELIEVE worship of God should be intelligent. Therefore, our services are designed with great emphasis upon the teaching of the Word of God that He might instruct us how He should be worshiped.

WE BELIEVE worship of God should be fruitful. Therefore, we look for His love in our lives as the supreme manifestation that we have been truly worshipping Him.

"I'm a sinner" from 2 Samuel 8

In an alcohol rehab, a person introduces themselves as "my name is ____ and I'm an alcoholic"... same as being a sinner not "I was a sinner" but "I'm a sinner", we must realize we are all sinner saved by grace we need to over throw our need of flesh and fight the sinful nature that satan brings our way...
Jesus did get over come satan and so we must rely on Jesus never say "I'm in control" and we can overcome it ourselves.

Imagine this, can we go on a day without sin? being perfect no evil thoughts or white lies.

Put on Jesus Christ and don't have or let satan take over, start everyday with prayers. You can't play with fire and not get burn, saying "little sin, little lies" it will only take little by little to finally realize it gets bigger and before we knew it you fall in the trap of satan.

Would you eat a very little virus (example bird flu) to compromise your health?
Read Ep 4:22-24 means put off sinful nature and put on Jesus Christ.

Sin = makes us feel good and delicious but it leads to death going to hell. Psalm 33:16-17 = we need to trust only to God. Don't let possessions possessed you. Dedicate your mind to Jesus and trust in him for salvation.

"Jesus Ministry is Superior" from Hebrews 8

Before serving others allow Jesus to be the minister in our Heart and Mind, let the Holy Spirit work in you. . Allow Jesus be our high priest and let Him minister to us. Remember the story of Martha who was working so hard and Mary was just sitting around Jesus to hear His words, Martha even ask Jesus to let Mary help her with the chores but Jesus said why are you so worried?
Run to Jesus instead of running to people. Don't get too much worrying and running to every where but getting nowhere. Let Jesus mold and shape you. Don't be like Martha or another example is the chicken that has just cut its head it will keep on running without the head but gets nowhere and died in the end. Never detach ourselves to Jesus.

Ephesians 5:2 means first experience God's Love and let that love flows to give to others.
our ability for christian life comes from God, receive it and give to others.

Make sure your relationship to God is NOT rituals or earning favor from God, it is always done out of Love and not a chores that you should do. You don't have to do any rituals or any roundabout ways but go in directly to Jesus.

At Exodus 24:7 the people agreement of Ten Commandments with God. But it wasn't kept by side?
Us people.

So in Matthew 5:17 Jesus said "I did not come to destroy the ten commandments but to fulfill it"
Thus God made new covenant in Hebrews 8:10-12.

People would tend to always blame their mistakes to others instead of to repent from sin and ask forgiveness to God.
God's grace is always available all you need to do is accept it.

Pastor's Message
1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
=Be encourage that Jesus is coming soon. Be ready for His return. Watch and pray that you may be counted worthy to be taken up and stand in His presence.

"You Don't Deserve Grace" from 2 Samuel 7

Receiving grace is freely and not to complain.

Is there anything to do for God to give us more grace?
The answer is no. Its not what you do or memorize Bible verses... would these what God wants us to do?
Ask and pray for it. Check our heart and motives; Nobody can see it except the Lord. We have to be careful make sure you are doing from love and faith and not earning from God.

We all are sinners saved by grace, we can't look at all our achievements and awards. Remember where we came from. Let God lead us and guide us in life never say I'm going to do what I want to do.

God is going to lead us where it is good for us. Not that there be anymore trials and problems but those problems is going to mold us to lead us for better life. God give us grace we don't deserve. And given us free will to accept or deny God's grace.

We just can't doubt and say later to believe God's grace. At 2 Samuel 7:12 is God's promise to David.

We all deserve punishment.
Can you imagine yourself sacrificing your life for a criminal? For a criminal to be save you must sacrifice your own life, can you do that? That is what Christ did for us.

We experience God's grace by reading his word and following it. There is a big difference between Law and Love.
Law is I have to do it.
Love is I like doing it.

Nobody deserve heaven but that is what we will get to receive God's grace. Don't ever take any credit but point it to the Lord. It's all for the glory of God. God is in control of universe. Thank him and praise for HIM to show our appreciation, as we don't deserve God's Grace

"Jesus is the Best" from Hebrews 7

Our nation as democracy politics in our country thinking more about themselves the President is the representative.

In our Christian life is theocracy let God rule our life and Jesus as our representative.

Melchizedek = is the appearance of Jesus in the old testament.
Jesus is the best high priest he can give us everlasting peace the reality is that there is no peace without Jesus.

In the old testament a High Priest must be in tribe of Levi. There's no way to God the Father except to God the Son.
Jesus said "I am the way to the truth and life there's no other way except tru me".
Some other religion says there are many Gods but Christianity says there's one God and no other God. Jesus is perfect, had no sin and can save us from sin.

This year was the 200 years anniversary of Charles Darwin one who created evolution but God created everything because if evolution was true...Then half man and ape would exist or if a whale became cow then there will be no more whale in our Earth and half whale and cow would also exist.

In our life our greatest need is "forgiveness" and only one can fulfill our needs that is Jesus.
LORD= yaweh, Jehovah the becoming one.

The most important is our spiritual needs not physical we need to be Holy to come to God. Don't believe the lies of satan we can be save by going to church and doing good thighs without faith. We are saved by Jesus alone not by who we are but who he is for he represent forever in God the Father.
Pastor's Message
John 13:34-35 A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
=Love is a command for all Christians. We can only obey this command of love when we first receive and experience God's love.

Pastor's Message
1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
=the world says if you have more you will be happy. But the reality is only more of Jesus and less of the world will bring you joy.

Different Battle Same Lord

From 2 Samuel 5 Different Battle Same Lord
An example of a battle would be in playing the basketball, in the first two quarters a team may not win but in the fourth quarter they are leading then the players would be rejoicing but on the last 3 seconds the other team would have a 3points shot and they won the battle.

When we are victorious that is when we need to guard even more.

In Christian life we should never celebrate right away, it's only through Holy Spirit and Power of God that we can be victorious in Life.

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

We need the Holy Spirit's power everyday to fulfill great things in life...
Don't trust in your own acknowledge but trust only in God and Jesus; There's no issue or problem too big for God to solve. Jesus is the King of our life.

Never pray “Lord don't leave or forsake me” but instead Thank him for not forsaking and leaving you.

When we are victorious that is when we need to guard even more to the next battle, our struggle may not always have the same solution but we have the same God and He gave us fresh directions always if we only ask him for it.

"Move Ahead" from Hebrews 6:1-12

As Christian we need to keep in mind our training and then go on to maturity. . .

We need to know what we believe and stick to it to know this basics in elementary truth, we use what we learn.

Move ahead and not laying again the foundation and continue to believe Jesus is the savior. Read Corinthians 3:11

Repentance is a part of understanding in our faith. Repentance change our heart living to please God and not other persons.

The difference between good day and bad day is your attitude.
Right attitude in life. Who am I living for?
Is it the Lord or myself?

Faith in God => Mental understanding and saving faith; receive him not only mentally but through your heart, the one God revealed in three entities => The Father, the Son and The Holy Spirit.

Baptism => is to repent, believe and acknowledge that we received Jesus in our heart and it’s not for salvation because salvation is a free Gift through our faith.

Salvation is a process in life. Move ahead and don’t fall away from the basics of Christianity. Don’t harden our heart before God; Not only we receive but we Move ahead we don’t stay as spiritual babies.

We must have contentment in physical things. But never get content in loving God and loving our neighbors. Fruit of the spirit is Love.

Hold on and live up for God. Move ahead but don’t drop out from the race. God has good plans. Christian life is an adventure, we don’t know what we have for tomorrow continue to trust and be confident.

Walk by faith not by sight.
When you give, give that no one knows and you will receive reward from God. Hebrews 13:16.

Remember: To Move ahead, don’t be too lazy and be comfortable with your life that you forgot about God.

Bible Research:
The oldest Man in the Bible was 969 years old, do you know his name?

Pastor's Message
Mark 1:35 Now in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He went out and departed into a solitary place, and there He prayed.
=no matter how busy Jesus' schedule. He always had prayer as the number one priority of His day. Let's follow Jesus example and pray before we start our day.
