From the Pastor
Reflection is a word that suggests standing back and considering what has been done. In the 40 years of ministry God has blessed us with, we have ministered to hundreds of people. People have come, many have remained and continue to grow in the things of God, many more will come, and some have gone. Some to pursue the vision God has given them, some to other places where they felt more comfortable, and some have fallen by the way.
This is a parallel to Jesus' parable of the sower. Though planted seed lands on different soil with various results, the sower must continue to plant and water. The Word of God we have planted over the past four decades has been accurate and uncompromising to the best of the ability God has given us.
We were not all things for all people, but honest with ourselves as to what we could enthusiastically support and what we could not. We thank our Heavenly Father for His faithfulness to complete everything He promised us. We will continue to look upon ourselves as vessels that God will use in the continuing earthly ministry of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. And until Jesus comes again, there is still much land to be taken.
As the pastor of The Spoken Word Church, I would like to invite you to visit us. No matter what need you have, we teach of a God who will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.
There are many areas of ministry offered at The Spoken Word Church which will bless every member of your family and help each of you fulfill the great commission. Grace and peace will be multiplied in your life as you choose to continue growing in the knowledge of God's Word. With consistency (patience) in God's Word (faith) you will receive all of His exceeding great and precious promises. The more you know Jesus, the better job you'll do in presenting Him to the world.
The Spoken Word Church is here to serve you. My prayers go with you. May God's richest and best be yours!
