Word Of The Month

9 July 2017 is EL’s Golden Anniversary! It’s our church’s 50th Birthday. 

 

Looking back, we are amazed at what the LORD has done.  In less than two generations, the church has multiplied more than thirty times! We thank God that many first-generation Christians have remained in EL and are worshiping & serving God with their children.  EL has produced a number of fulltime pastors and evangelists who are active in ministry. There are churches in several countries planted by people who were from EL. The influence of our church goes way beyond our size because it is God who works through us. He is glorified when we, His church, flourishes & continues the work of sharing the Gospel & making disciples locally & overseas.

 

As we celebrate the wonderful work of the Lord, we must remember that we are HIS church. We belong to God. It’s all about Him, not about us and our blessings. Yes, God has done great things for us. We are forgiven; we enjoy the abundant life. He provides our needs and gives us joy. But we are not the centre.  He is the CENTRE. God is the One we worship. Jesus is the Master of our lives. The Holy Spirit directs all our ways. 

 

God says in Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”

 

Church, God wants us to grow in maturity and strength.  We will know God more & experience the Holy Spirit’s Presence, Power & Work. Together let’s make a greater impact in our world and see lives changed & communities transformed!

 

EL, You’re 50 & Going Strong!
