A Message from Rev. Jeremiah Cheung, Senior Pastor
The year 2016 has come upon us in an instant. As we embark on our church expansion efforts, we will continue to pursue our ongoing focus on Intentional Discipleship.
I. The Journey Groups Continue. In 2014, we decided to become a disciple-making church and revised our church vision and mission statements. We attended a number of seminars, visited other churches, and humbly sought to learn from them. In 2015, we launched the Journey Groups, beginning with seven teams. Our motto remains “Think Big. Start Small. Go Deep.” We do not want to start a discipleship program; instead we are promoting a discipleship movement. In 2016, we hope to see this movement continue to challenge and at the same time, be a great blessing to the church.
II. The Church Building Construction Begins: Our purpose is to expand God’s kingdom, to create a base from which the coming generations of believers can effectively continue completing the mission God has given to the Church. We do not rely on ourselves for the human resources, material resources, and spiritual resources; we look to the grace of God. Our prayer is that we may experience the presence of God and that our spiritual lives may grow as we pursue this work.
The Groundbreaking Ceremony for our future church building lot was held in July 2016 and construction has officially started. Set Forth, a church-wide movement, was also launched to introduce and involve the community in working towards becoming an effective disciple-making church.
Brothers and sisters, we will continue to pursue growth in two aspects this year: we will be building the physical church edifice, so we have enough space, facilities, and an ideal environment for the Lord’s work. While the construction work is vital, we must not lose sight of the more important work that lies ahead: that of building the spiritual body of Christ. God’s will is that we establish a group of mighty people, disciples who are real followers of Jesus, a group of disciples with a mission. Amen!!
Join a Life Group! Our life groups allow our church to grow without losing the personal relationships that are essential to maintain the Christian life that the Bible calls us to. Don’t try to be a Spiritual Lone Ranger.
