Sermon Title:     "God Will Gather His People"
Sermon Text:     Genesis 49: 29-33
Preaching:         Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:  
                   I. The First Sign: Jacob Declares That His Being Gathered by                           God is Imminent    
                  II. The Second Sign: A Memorial in the Land God Promised
                 III. The Third Sign: The Prophet's Easy Exodus
 
God's Word is always to be received by faith by you, as are all of God's children.  In order to help you believe His Promises God often gives you signs.  By these signs God fulfills his promises, and shows himself to be faithful to His covenant promises.  Therefore, you are to hear, understand, believe, and take comfort and assurance in all that God reveals to you through his prophets.  God promised that he will gather you to himself, so be of good cheer as His promise is certain.

Sermon Title:  "God's Standard for a Minister"
Sermon Text:  Titus 2: 7,8
Preaching:  Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:
                   I.  Ministers Are To Be Models of Good Works
                  II.  Ministers Are To Teach in A Godly Manner
                 III   Ministers Must Not Bring Reproach to God's People

Ministers serve as a model in deeds and in speech to God's people in everything that they do.  Their doctrine must be pure and Biblical and their speech and conduct must be blameless and above reproach, lest the Name of God and His Gospel be badly spoken about.
 
 
 
 
 
 
                  
 
 
 

 

 

Our Pledge to Visitors: What You Can Expect If You Visit Us Next Sunday  
We will worship God only as He has prescribed in His Holy Scriptures.  We do not manipulate consciences or levy man-made rules and practices on the people of God.  We love this liberty because the Son of God has made us free (John 8:36).
We will worship God by delivering His whole counsel to His people.  We teach the whole of the Bible, because Jesus Christ has commanded us to teach it (Matthew 28:18-20).

We will preach sermons in consecutive order through entire books of the Bible without side-stepping the difficult texts (Acts 20:26, 27).  We find harmony in the Scriptures; therefore we explain the meaning of the whole Bible and apply its teachings practically for your Christian walk.
We will not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus and Him crucified.  We declare that we are bereft of any righteousness of our own.  We freely confess our sin every week.  But the good news is that God saves sinners and justifies the ungodly through faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 4:5).  We glory in Christ and in the righteousness that is imputed to us through faith in Him (Philippians 3:8-10; Titus 3:5).



 
 

  
“This is the covenant I will make ... declares the Lord.  I will put my laws in their minds and
write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people” (Hebrews 8:10).
