Dear Partner in Christ,
Greetings to you all in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
I want to welcome you to our parish website and appreciate you for spending your valuable time to know what the Lord is doing in and through our parish for the glory and furtherance of His kingdom.
As a parish, we are celebrating our Silver Jubilee Year. We want to thank God for His faithfulness and His blessings that He has showered upon us during the last twenty five years and submit ourselves to His hand.
Thus we are focusing on…
Fellowship, Koinonia, is one of the most beautiful words in the New Testament. It means more than a social get together. It describes a communion, a sharing between those who have something special in common. Because of the spirit of Christ within the early Christians, they began to love one another, share their burdens, and to pray together. As a Parish, we have the Sunday worship service, and weekly cottage prayer meetings, where we would fellowship with God and with His people. These fellowships would have sessions of celebrating God’s faithfulness through praise and worship, study of God’s word to reinforce each one’s Biblical foundation, time to share with one another and each one’s experience of daily walk with the Lord to encourage one another.
The early Christians continued steadfastly not only in the apostles teaching and in fellowship, but also in united prayers. In our community, we gather for prayer meetings to intercede for various needs, for God answers united prayer.
The ultimate mission of the church is to proclaim the ministry of the indwelling Christ and to preach a universal gospel-warning and teaching all people that God in his grace, mercy and inconceivable compassion, can save us from sin and give assurance of eternal salvation. Through His spirit, God has made provisions that any Christian can speak His word with boldness and in so doing, shake the structures of the society in which they live. As a parish, we are committed to His mission to reach out to the unreached.
This site gives information about our Christian faith and updates about the activities of the parish in connection with our mission and ministry along with the photos of recent events.
May I take this opportunity to invite you to join our worship service, weekly fellowships, prayers and mission activities for celebrating Christ’s victory on the cross.
May God bless you,
In Christ’s Service,
Rev. Johnson Daniel
