At The Movies - Moana: Beyond The Reef

June 12, 2017

As we start our new series, "At The Movies" we take a look at the movie Moana as Pastor Neli reads from the Book of Matthew and makes a comparison to when Jesus had walked on water and invited Peter to come out to him. Jesus is calling us to live beyond the reef. God is calling us to go beyond ourselves, our fears, and our limitations to serve others and to glorify Him. What is limiting you from stepping out for everything God has for you?

But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
“Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
- Matthew 14:27-29 (NIV)

So That - Disciplined or Disqualified

June 5, 2017

Join us this week as Pastor Tina continues our "So That" series. This week we look at the Book of 1 Corinthians as Paul describes how we should run the race set before us. The race God gives us is very specific to us but what Paul is referring to is God's act of calling us for salvation. We should run with eternity in mind. Don't run for temporary fixes or the things of this world. Think eternal

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
- 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (NIV)

So That - The Rocket And The Elevator

May 29, 2017

Join us today as we continue our "So That" series. Pastor Neli compares a rocket to an elevator and the requirements for each to lift us upwards. Let's compare this to the Book of Ephesians where Jesus and his love came down through the cross so that we can be elevated up to be seated in heavenly place. God's mercy, His grace and His love for us are the counterweights that elevate us. We just need to lay our burdens down and enter in

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
- Ephesians 2:4-7 (ESV)

So That - These Things These Days

May 22, 2017

Continuing with our "So That.." series is "These Things These Days". Pastor Neli takes us back to the things which were a fad or common use back in the day compared to now. Are they still making an impact in the nation or passed on to the people around us? As Christians, what are we planning on passing on to the next generation? Let us be effective in leading by example, continuing to devour the Bible for all it's worth and serving generationally.

Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.
- 1 Tim 4:7-8 (ESV)

So That - 3 Words 5 Minutes 99 Problems

May 15, 2017

We are kick-starting a new series called "So That..." which talks about the letters of Paul. Pastor Neli starts in the Book of 1 Thessalonians as we go through scripture and learn how to control our bodies, love one another and mind our own business when it comes to the lives of others. There is a way we ought to walk and that is not by wanting to please others but a want to please God.

Finally, then, brothers, we ask and urge you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God, just as you are doing, that you do so more and more.
- 1 Thessalonians 4:1 (ESV)

The Almost Perfect Storm

May 1, 2017

We are very fortunate to have Chairman of Victory Philippines Bishop Manny Carlos to bring our word today. Bishop Manny Carlos takes us back to the story of Jonah and his struggles in listening to God. God is a god who speaks and wants to communicate with His people because communication is the essence of relationships.

The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.”
Jonah 1:1-2 (ESV)

Understanding God’s Heart For The Nations

April 24, 2017

We welcome a very special guest to deliver our message today, Pastor Jun Escosar. Pastor Jun is the Every Nation Asia Director and Every Nation World Missions Director and is passionate about missions and reaching every nation as we are called to do by God. God wants all nations reached but before we can reach all nations, we as a church must first be fruitful and increase in number because our capacity to impact the world will be dependent on our human resources, manpower resources and financial resources.

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it
