Welcome to the Power of Christ’s Gospel Ministries!
What do you think of when you hear the word power? Often the word generates a mental image of strength and might. You may think of control or authority. The power associated with the gospel of Jesus Christ is all of those things. But the most significant aspect of the power that is inherent in the gospel of Jesus Christ is “the ability to act or produce an effect.” That is what our ministry here in Long Branch, NJ is all about, winning souls, preaching and teaching the Word of God to produce an effect in the lives of those who receive it (John 1:12).
Let’s look at a few examples from the scriptures:
- John 3:16 and Romans 5:8 speak of the power of God’s love that made a way of salvation for us.
- II Corinthians 5:17, 18 speaks of the ability of the power of Christ to make you a new creature and make all things new in your life.
- Isaiah 53:3-5 speaks of the power of Christ’s sacrifice to bring salvation to the lost, healing to the sick, peace to the beleaguered and emotional wholeness to the unstable.
- II Corinthians 2:14 speaks of the power of God to cause you to overcome and succeed in every situation.
- Ephesians 3:20 speaks of the power of God that can do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or even think.
The Power of Christ’s gospel is awesome!
Our prayer for you is that you would accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord by giving him the power (control and authority) over your life. Then, allow his power (strength and might) to work on every aspect of your life and you will experience the power (ability to act or produce an effect) of the gospel of Jesus Christ in your life!
Join us Sunday mornings at 11am for power-packed worship and study of God’s word.
