Partnership Update – September 2017

Partnership Update - September 2017

Thinking that the essential principles of Spirit-empowered preaching were well covered by other speakers, Art Azurdia asked if he might simply expound a text when he spoke at last month’s GBP Conference. That was no problem. That’s exactly what we wanted him to do. What was slightly unexpected is how explicitly evangelistic the messages – particularly the second one – were. It was Spirit-empowered preaching at it’s best. So, we have not been surprised to hear of three young people present at the conference who have now requested baptism in their local churches. We give thanks to God for this wonderful blessing. Next year’s conference is planned for 21st-23rd August at Swanwick when we look forward to welcoming Brian Croft as our main speaker. The theme is church revitalisation. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 30 - Unsung heroines

The wives of gospel workers have a very important role to play in the churches. They first of all must seek to have an exemplary walk with the Lord. They furthermore must endeavour to encourage their husband in the work the Lord has given him to do. Some of them have the added responsibilities of motherhood as well. Finally, they must make full use of their own gifts in the service of the Lord and His church. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 29 - The church is a building

According to the Apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 3) as well as the Apostle Peter (1 Peter 2) the church is a building. Not just any building, mind you, God’s building. A spiritual house being built by God for God. A church, however, is not the building in which it meets. That’s a different matter altogether. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 28 - Situation Vacant

Bruce Jenkins, one of the elders at Caversham Evangelical Church in Reading, wrote recently to tell me about the ongoing work in Sonning Common. He told of various encouragements – a weekly afternoon service, a well-supported parent and toddlers group, a monthly club for primary school age children and a new evangelistic course being attended by three local non-Christians – but closed by drawing my attention to a great need.

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 27 - Third Choice?

Those familiar with the process for appointing a leader for the work in Walthamstow, will know that ‘Wale Akinrogunde was not the first person considered for the post. Truth be told he wasn’t even the second. Two other men had the opportunity to take up the post before deciding for different reasons not to do so. It was only then that ‘Wale was interviewed and subsequently offered the post. Does that mean he was our third choice? Not at all. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 26 - Evangelical Tract Society

I didn’t become a Christian through a tract. I did become a Grace Baptist through one. My family and I were seeking to plant an independent evangelical church in Haringey, London. One day as we were walking down Wood Green High Street a tract was placed in my hand. That was my first encounter with a Grace Baptist and my first experience with Evangelical Tract Society tracts. It would not be the last. Continue reading

Month of Prayer and Giving Day 25 - Aiming at what is honourable

When Paul wrote 2 Corinthians he made mention of his desire not to attract criticism in the administration of financial gifts from the churches. He said measures had been taken to handle finances wisely because of a desire to do what was honourable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man. It is for this reason – among others – that Grace Baptist Partnership seeks to honour the Lord in this area. Continue reading
