A Special Message from Our Pastor

Dear Loved Ones,

All morning long I’ve been searching for the words to share that might encourage you and give comfort to the afflicted. I tweeted earlier…

“We are praying for the students, families, and all those affected by the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas today. We have a God who ‘comforts us in all our troubles, so that we might comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God’ (2 Corinthians 1:4).”

Notice that our God comforts us in “ALL our troubles.” Notice that He does so in order that “we might comfort those in ANY trouble.” This is not with mere human comfort, but with “the comfort we ourselves receive from God.” It is His comfort with which He equips us to comfort those who are facing ANY and ALL kinds of trouble (even the trouble of this morning’s horrific events).

The Apostle Paul continues on in 2 Corinthians 1:5-11 to describe that even though our hope is in God, through Jesus Christ, we also share in His sufferings (v5). For those in Christ, we rely on the One who delivers from all trouble, even death. It is in the One True God, who raises from the dead (first Christ, and through His resurrection raises those who believe in Him from eternal death into eternal life) that we place our trust in ALL circumstances. It is in Him and on Him that “we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us (even into eternity)” (v10).

Loved ones, we have hope and comfort for those who are hurting, both in times of trouble like today, and every day. It is my prayer that He will use you to bring this ultimate comfort and healing through the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

I have been notified that there is a special prayer service at FBC Alta Loma in Santa Fe this evening at 7:00 p.m. If you are unable to attend, please join us in prayer this evening and in the days to come.

Yours in Christ,

Bro. John

Our Mission:

Living OUt God's Word in His World.

Jesus is central to everything we do. We sing, pray, and preach in His powerful Name. Our past, present, and future is centered on Jesus. Our purpose on this earth is to live in a way that makes Christ known. Luke 10:2-3a records Jesus saying, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into the harvest. Go! ” We commit that our church is dedicated to loving God with everything that we have, and living in this world in the way His word commands. We invite you to join us in this desire.


Our Gatherings:

Island Casual.

We are a community of people who are in process. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Everybody is welcome here whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles. We’re all about doing life together in community, being intentional about our growth as people and serving one another and our broader community along the way.

We want to invite you to our Sunday Service to experience our community of Jesus-followers authentically engaging with the God we love!
