Today is a new day so let us give thanks.
Have you ever had a time in your life that you wished you had done something but fear held you back? Maybe it was an opportunity to do something but you let it pass you by in regret.
A few years ago I witnessed a very powerful testimony of a woman who wanted to be baptized. While attending church this particular Sunday she witness a man sharing his story and it began to light a fire within her. The man had chosen to get baptized as a very last minute decision claiming that the opportunity came one Sunday and he regretted not taking it. He had been following Jesus for quite a long time but now it was “time” to follow through in OBEDIENCE to God’s CALL on his LIFE. He didn’t want fear to stop him from all the good things that God had planned for him. This was the day to display his LOVE and DEDICATION to Jesus to those around him.
Friends, after this man shared his story the woman sitting next to me, got up right away and went to the front to be baptized. When they asked her why she wanted to be baptized these profound words left her mouth; “IT IS TIME!”
Whether you are a long-time believer in Jesus or even a short-time believer you have an opportunity to take that next step of FAITH. To let God truly TRANSFORM your LIFE. Never put off doing the things your HEART is whispering for you to do as the TIME and opportunity may not come again. For none of us knows when we will take our last breath on this earth.
The truth is BAPTISM is an outward display of an inner change in your heart and declaring your life WILL be LIVED for Jesus. So, is this the year, the month and the day that you will say yes to God’s Call for your life? If you decide to accept His gift and move forward it will be the best day of your life!!!
Have a wonderful day and always remember how dearly you are loved and you are never alone.
Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 5, 2022, at 11 am as we gather for a special outdoor service and Baptisms. Don’t forget your lawn chairs! Please try and arrive 15 min early so we can get everyone parked and ready to worship. Let's all pray for a beautiful sunny day.

With everything we see happening in our world today perhaps this was meant to be shared now more than ever.
Sometimes when things are shared ahead of time it will bring revelations to open eyes and ears later in the future.

A MESSAGE of HOPE!!!
But Jesus said, "Let the children come to Me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children. Matthew 19:14
This is such a beautiful story of obedience when David Joshua heard Pastor Peter's message on the importance of Baptism. He DIDN'T WANT TO WAIT because he only wanted to be OBEDIENT to the CALL.
As the date was arriving the parents' were concerned that their son was too young to understand or he may be doing this to make them happy so they almost stopped this beautiful day from moving forward. After they took it to God in prayer along with fasting and others praying for them they believed that David Joshua was truly HEARING from God.
Because of the OBEDIENCE of this young boy many of US have been BLESSED more than he will ever know. He truly has set an EXAMPLE of HIS FAITH and DEDICATION TO CHRIST. We know that God has amazing plans for this young man and his SMILE shows the JOY he feels in His HEART from JESUS. We are so proud of you David Joshua!!!
"For I know the plans I have for you, " says the Lord.
They are plans for good and not for disaster,
to give you a hope and a future.
Jesus replied," I assure you no one can enter the
Kingdom of God without being
BORN of WATER and the SPIRIT."
On this beautiful day of Baptism we are thankful for the words shared by our brother Lorenzo about his own life and the importance of getting baptized. He shared that his plan was to be baptized in the Jordan River whenever that day would come that he could go to Israel. He began to FEEL GOD TUGGING at his HEART after his wife and daughter took that step of obedience. The thoughts began to HINDER in his mind that if he was the head of the family perhaps it was TIME to SHOW it with ACTIONS. The time was NOW and he COULDN'T wait for his own plans to unfold but ONLY God's plan.
What God REVEALED to him and what he SHARED was so truly powerful that I BELIEVE we could all LEARN from these WISE words. " Even though Jesus who is PERFECT without Sin in His life, He still wanted to be Baptized in obedience to the FATHER so should we ourselves not want this too?"
To read the story of Jesus and His Baptism go to Matthew 3:13-16

We are living in the days when we must obey God knowing that He is with us.
The more we learn His Word and Carry it in our HEARTS the better we will endure the days ahead.
We encourage you to memorize some Scriptures and say them daily to keep your heart CONNECTED to God and He will STRENGTHEN your FAITH and GIVE you HIS PEACE.
Always remember how dearly you are LOVED and that you are NEVER ALONE.
The days we are in now we should all remember to pray extra hard for our Pastors. These men of God have been given one of the most difficult jobs in this world and that is watching over the well-being of their flock. Friends we may not realize the stress and pressure they are under especially when they are teaching the TRUTH from God’s WORD. They have a RESPONSIBILITY that many of us will truly never understand. It’s about each one of us and our Spiritual life. It is all about our soul and where we will spend our eternity, either in hell or heaven. For the days we are in, many leaders will be led astray by the world’s way without even recognizing it. Each Pastor and leadership in the church will have to be very discerning and take their guidance from God’s Spirit so that they do not lead their own flock astray.
In God’s Word there are some powerful Scriptures that we should all read and remember their job is not easy in any way and they truly have only the best interest at heart for us.
Paul shared in Acts some words that I am sure many Pastors will be able to relate to.
I have done the Lord’s work humbly and with many tears. I have endured the trails that came to me from the plots of the Jews. I never shrank back from telling you what you needed to hear, either publicly or in your homes. I have had one message for the Jews and Greeks alike- the necessity of repenting from sin and turning to God, and of having faith in our Lord Jesus. And now I am bound by the Spirit to go to Jerusalem. I don’t know what awaits me, except that the Holy Spirit tells me in city after city jail and suffering lie ahead. But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus- the work of telling the Good News about the wonderful grace of God. And now I know that none of you to whom I have preached the Kingdom will ever see me again. I declare today that I have been faithful. If anyone suffers eternal death it’s not my fault, for I didn’t shrink from declaring all the God wants you to know. So guard yourselves and God’s people. Feed and shepherd God’s flock- his church purchased with his own blood- over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as elders. I know that false teachers, like vicious wolves, will come in among you after I leave, not sparing the flock. Even some men from your own group will rise up and distort the truth in order to draw a following. Watch out! Remember the three years I was with you - my constant watch and care over you night and day, and my many tears for you. And now I entrust you to God and the message of his grace that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those he has set apart for himself. Acts 20:19-32
And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will guide you with knowledge and understanding. Jeremiah 3:15
The Lord is my shepherd;I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths; bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life and, and I will live in the house of the lord forever. Psalm 23 1-6
Father we pray that you would watch over and protect the Pastor’s and all the leadership within your church for protection. Keep them strong and healthy to accomplish the work you have given them. Give them wisdom and discernment to recognize things that are not from you so that they keep their sheep on the narrow path heading towards HEAVEN and Your Kingdom Come. We pray all these things in Jesus Name. Amen
