Worship Theme:  Christ Is the Head of the Church
Sermon Title:    "Christ's Ministry to the Seven Churches"
Sermon Text:     Revelation 1: 9-11 with Revelation 2: 1
Preaching:          Rev. Lou Veiga
Sermon Outline:  I.   Christ Is the Sole Head Over All of the Church
                           II.  Christ's Word Rules Over All of the Church
                          III.  Christ's Judging Begins With the Household of God
                          IV.  Christ's Judgment of the Household of God Includes A                                    Range of  "Voicings"
                           V.  Christ's Churches Do Not All Shine Alike
 
The Risen Lord Jesus Christ is very active ministering to all of his churches today.  He ministers as King, Prophet, and Interceding Priest in the Temple of God.  But the two offices featured in these two chapters are his kingly rule and his prophetic Word -- which he entrusts to his saints through the human instruments of his Apostle John and the messenger of the church.  Christ's Word will comfort, strengthen, warn, and even condemn whole churches depending on his infallible knowledge and wisdom.  Each church must conform and reform to Christ's every word, or face his chastening.  You therefore have a strong incentive to listen to God's Word, to have it in your heart, and to live it.
                        

5:00 PM  Evening Worship Service

Worship Theme:  Our Ascent to Zion
Sermon Title:     "Jehovah Keeps You"
Sermon Text:      Psalm 121
Preaching:           Rev. Lou Veiga

                           III.  The Completeness of the Pilgrim's Help
 
Jehovah's worshipers are kept from all evil, at all times, and in all circumstances.  This is because Jehovah your God has covenanted with you to be your keeper.  Therefore you may worship and serve Him in joy and without fear all the days of your life, both now and forevermore.
 

 

  

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).
