Praise the Lord for our 2012-2013 commitment to give $48,747.00 to spread the Gospel of Christ.
I am really excited about our Mission Conference. Each missionary was faithful to present their field and Bro. Rick Stucke encouraged us all “to be involved”. I truly enjoyed the Spirit-filled messages and the fellowship at the International Banquet. Our hearts were both stirred and challenged thru this years theme "--That Repentance and Remission of Sins should be preached--!" Luke 24:47. Due to our efforts many in the world will have an opportunity to hear the Gospel of our loving Saviour, Jesus Christ. In the last 18 years BBC has given $1,250,000 to World Missions through the Faith Promise Plan. Faith Promise for 2013-2014 = $56,108.00. My continuous prayer for our missions giving is - Precious Lord Jesus help us to reach out to a lost and dying world!
Friends, our commitments and actions regarding Faith Promise Giving is yet another expression of our obedience to Christ’s word. As you complete your weekly Faith Promise commitment that God placed on your heart, please remember to actively pray for our new Missions Year! God Bless -- Pastor Stucke
This month we remember the Resurrection of our precious Saviour.
The simplest meaning of Easter is that we are living in a world in which GOD has the last word. On the Wednesday night before Easter morning, it appeared as if evil had triumphed. The holiest One who had ever lived was dead and in His tomb -- crucified by the order of a tyrant without either scruples or regrets. Jesus, who had raised the highest hopes among men had died by the most shameful means. A jearing mob who only a week before had praised him, a cross, two nails, and a quick thrust of a spear ended it all. Those hours when His voice was stilled and His hands were quiet were the blackest days in the history of the world.
If Caesar could put an end to Jesus, then no man culd ever dare to hope again -- the very word would become one of mockery.
Then came Easter morning and the glorious words: "He is Risen!" Evil's triumph was crushed.
Since that hour, no man whose heart was pure with belief in Jesus ever had a reason to fear or despair! Christ, our Saviour, fulfilled prophecy and His promises -- He has risen and ransomed us from the grip of Satan!
