Jesus' Promise #1—Matthew 16:18

  • Jesus: "I will My Church."

Jesus' Promise #2—Matthew 16:18

  • Jesus: "I have  My Church."

Jesus' Promise #3—Ephesians 5:25

  • Jesus: "I will My Church."
     
  • During ages of spiritual darkness the church of God has been as a city set on a hill. From age to age, through successive generations, the pure doctrines of heaven have been unfolding within its borders. Enfeebled and defective as it may appear, the church is the one object upon which God bestows in a special sense His regard. It is the theater of His grace, in which He delights to reveal His power to transform hearts." (Acts of the Apostles 12)
     
  • "The church may  as about to fall, but it does not fall. It remains, while the sinners in Zion will be sifted out—the chaff separated from the precious wheat. This is a terrible ordeal, but nevertheless it must take place" (Last Day Events 180).
     
  • So we must pray!

"To Him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen."

Pioneer Offering for March 6

The Church Operating Offering provides funding for church ministries, Sabbath School expense, staff salaries, utilities & janitorial, emergency assistance, public address system, repairs & maintenance, children's ministries, office equipment & supplies, insurance, publications, public relations, and our website.

If you benefit from any of the above-listed items, this fund would be an important one to include in your plan for faithful stewardship.  As important as keeping heat and light on in our homes is the necessity for doing the same for God’s house that we share.   And just as He is faithful to help us with the costs at home, He will help us to share in this responsibility.  Even when we have difficulties with finances at home, faithfulness to Him puts us in a position to be blessed.

Deuteronomy 8:11 - "And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth."

Philippians 4:19 - "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
