New Life Celebration

Glory to the God of peace!

These are truly exciting times! The Lord is raising, building and equipping His people to manifest His presence, power and personality! Through the cross we are reconciled to God and to one another! Hallelujah!

Yesterday the Lord spoke to us about not only being reconciled to Him and to one another, but also about how He wants us to be reconciled with ourselves! Looking at the account of Mephibosheth, the Lord showed us how we can grow up with a wrong identity because of not knowing and believing in the covenant God has already made with us by His blood. When we base our identity on our weaknesses and what man and Satan say about us, we become spiritually crippled and cannot walk in the fullness of what God has given us! The Lord wants His people to live out of the covenant He has made with His people. He wants us to live from our new identity in Christ and how God sees us. As God has forgiven us in Christ, so we must forgive ourselves and walk in the blood-bought freedom and identity God has given us. We must be reconciled with ourselves!

We praise God for His amazing work in drawing people to Himself and yesterday we celebrated another new life in Christ through baptism. The Lord is changing lives as we encounter Him and many are testifying to the wonderful work of the Holy Spirit in their lives during and outside our meetings! Hallelujah! You can view pictures taken on the day at

This week is going to be amazing. God's favour is upon us and we sense that God is about to do an even deeper work in us through the ministry of Richard Maybery. You can see the schedule of this week's "Seeking God's Face" meetings at

The Lord wants us to know Him so that we can make Him known! Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings and we will be translating the meetings into German for any German-speaking guests.

Quote of the week:

"Jesus replied: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.'" Matthew 22:37-39
