Mountain Moving Faith

Mountain Moving Faith

“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” (Mark 11:23-26) Ana of the Jedi Sector of OC! The first baptism of 2021!Today is “Bring Your Neighbor Day!” It is always so exciting to see new faces and to watch our visitor’s expressions as they come in...

The Biblical Differences Between The International Churches of Christ And The International Christian Churches “And this is my prayer… that you may discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ.” Philippians 1:9-10 Truth is of God and confusion is of Satan. (John 8:31-32, 43-44) Sadly, we live in a time when thousands of sincere disciples in scores of countries around the world are unsure about those of us who celebrated – during the month of October 2011 – the Fifth Anniversary of God’s new movement – officially named the International Christian Churches. Indeed, the present Biblical differences between the...

Degree of Lukewarmness

“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm – neither hot nor cold – I’m about to spit you out of my mouth.”  Revelation 3:15-16 The Easter Sunday Celebration Service of the City of Angels Church can be summed up in one word – “hot!” With an attendance of 864, the fellowship and the singing were electric! Included in the service was the AMS Region’s presentation of the moving play entitled, The Crossmaker – which so fittingly for Easter, glorifies the resurrection of Jesus Christ. During this momentous day, the Lord added 11 to our number – seven baptisms,...

The Promise

Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.

Biblical Strategies for World Evangelism

Biblical Strategies for World Evangelism

Immediately before Paul was baptized, Ananias shared with him God’s destiny for his life, “The God of our fathershas chosen you to know His will… You will be His witness to ALL MEN of what you have seen and heard.” (Acts 22:14-15) At the end of his life, Paul was so grateful to God that He had enabled Paul to fulfill this destiny. Just a short time before his execution in early 67 AD, Paul writes, “The Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and ALL GENTILES might hear it.” (2 Timothy 4:17) Clearly, Paul believed that the world was evangelized during his lifetime – ONE...

Seek First His Kingdom!

Prayer Goals for 2010 By Kip McKean "Seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33 Tim and Lianne Kernan in Notre Dame! Our 2012 theme for the City of Angels International Christian Church and our Winter Workshop is Seek First His Kingdom. However, before we look ahead, let's remember how the Spirit has moved in 2011. Perhaps most amazing is witnessing the unfolding of Jesus' plan of the multiplication of disciples! The City of Angels Church started 2011 with 303 disciples. In the past 365 days, "the Lord added to our number [more than] daily" as He blessed us with 366...
