Worship Theme:  God's Assembly
Sermon Title:    "Drawing Near to God"
Sermon Text:     Hebrews 10: 19-25
Preaching:         Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:  
                   I. God Commands You to Draw Near to Him
                  II. God Commands You to Keep the Christian Faith Without                               Wavering
                 III. God Commands You to Draw Near to Him in the Assembly
 
Christ has made it possible for you to draw near to God the Father by His great sacrifice on your behalf.  Because of Christ's present mediation you have the cleansing needed to come boldly. You are commanded to draw near to God through the sacrifice of Christ, and to persevere in this Way (in the Christian faith) despite every difficulty.  You must draw near to God in the assembly of His people because you have a ministry of encouragement to perform to others.  You must take encouragement and be ready because the Day of Christ's return is closer now than ever.

5:00 PM  Evening Worship Service

Worship Theme:   Meekness
Sermon Title:      "Meekness Pleases God"
Sermon Text:       Titus 3: 1,2
Preaching:            Rev. Lou Veiga, Senior Pastor
Sermon Outline:
                   I.  Meekness Involves Respecting Authority
                  II.  Meekness Requires Preparation
                 III.  Meekness Seeks Peace with Everyone
 
Every Christian must learn meekness.  You learn meekness by sincerely submitting to God-appointed authority from the heart.  You must take time to prepare yourself to do all kinds of good. The best way to do this is to go to God in prayer asking for wisdom, faith, grace, a new heart!   Seek peace with every person.
 

 

 

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).
