1 Corinthians 3:6
Today we are celebrating Gospel of Power Church 2nd Anniversary. It seems just like yesterday when on March 7th 2010 on a beautiful Sunday morning we were setting up chairs at the “Finnish Club” on Newnham Rd, not knowing if anyone would attend. To our surprise people did attend that very first service and ever since then, God has blessed the church and we can say “Ebenezer” God has helped us until this very day.
Its exciting to be Pastoring a Church that is increasing by the week not only numerically but also in our spiritual growth and in the moving and operating of the Holy Spirit. It is the moving of the Spirit that makes church what it should be, a place of salvation, healing, deliverance, baptism with the Holy Spirit and a place of revelation knowledge. And we thank God, because over the last two years that has been evident in our Church.
We can confidently say as the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 3:6 “God gave the increase” the word increase in the Greek is “Auxano” and means To Grow, To enlarge, To expand etc. This is a truth we must never forget, yes God uses our gifts and talents and the anointing on our lives but ultimately He is the one that brings the increase to the Church and the ministry. He is the life giver, the healer and the one that gives the blessing. We decree and declare that God will continue to give this Church the increase, considering also that we are just starting our journey as a Church, and there is much territory to conquer for the glory of Jesus Christ.
We want to thank all the people that help and serve in this Church in one way or another, you are much appreciated. We understand that on our own the work load would be much larger and less would be achieved. But with a corporate body of people that have decided not only to attend this church but to be part of the Church in serving, we have been able to achieve so much more.
May we continue strong, united and working towards the common goal which is to proclaim the one true Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Gospel of Power Church has a big vision and it is going to take big cooperation to get the job done, but we never forget that at the end of the day “God gives the Increase”.
He deserves all the Glory, the honour and the praise. So on this special day for our Church, lets thank Him for what he has done up until now, knowing that this is just the beginning and God has great things prepared for us as a Church. We love you and appreciate you!!!!!!
