Exciting Times!

We want to praise the Lord for two more young men who were baptized this month!  It has been our prayer to see souls saved and grow to be faithful members of the church. Too often in our world today, people make professions of faith and then disappear, never to be seen in our churches again.  This leaves us to wonder if they were truly saved or if we failed somehow to help them grow. In my own personal witness, I do my best not to push someone to make a decision. If the heart is not ready to recognize their sin and their absolute need of a Savior, praying the sinner’s prayer is not going to help them.  We must rely on the Holy Spirit as we share the Gospel with people and not pressure them to “get saved” before they are ready. Praise the Lord, the souls we have seen saved and baptized this month, have been faithfully attending church ever since. It is such an encouragement to see fruit that remains! These truly are exciting times for North Cebu Baptist Church!

Growing in Service

We have been so blessed to see the members of North Cebu Baptist Church get involved in the work of the ministry! From supporting the church financially to cooking for special events, we have watched the church grow in their service! Ralph and Jean are just one of the couples that have sacrificed their time and effort for the Lord. Each week they volunteer to help us with the youth group.  I know the Lord is pleased when Christians step up and invest themselves in others.  When we give our time to Christ He blesses us in so many ways: personal joy, a life full of purpose, and true happiness that comes from seeing Christ change a life! We are so thankful for our church as we work together to serve the Lord!

Celebrating 13 Years!

13 years ago, Pastor Travis Lewis and his family started North Cebu Baptist Church. After years of investing their lives, God used them to see many people saved and baptized. The Lewis’ were also the tool God used to bring our family to Cebu and we were so blessed by their partnership!  Now, 13 years later we celebrate as a church that is well on its way to being nationalized. The church members raised the money for this special day themselves! And the Lord blessed their giving! The church was packed with 349 adults, some of them first-time guests and others were returning visitors who have come throughout the years. On this day, souls were given another opportunity to hear the Gospel and consider Christ’s work on the cross.  We thank the Lord for North Cebu Baptist Church and what He has done through this ministry!  Please pray for us as we continue the work and reach out those who desperately need the Savior!

A Vision for Souls

 On Sunday, we were blessed to see a young man baptized!  This man came to church after meeting, Peter, one of our Bible college students. Peter has a passion for sharing Christ and bringing people to church!  Because of Peter’s heart for others, this man was able to hear the gospel and make the decision to trust Christ as his Savior!  It was such a blessing to see this young man take the next step and be baptized! I pray we would get God’s vision for souls and, like Peter, let it become our passion! 

 Proverbs 11:30 “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”
