But we can step forward with courage and faith knowing that God is always beside us.

(Matthew 28:18-20 NIV)
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Have a great week!
See you at church on Sunday!

Human relationships

Uncategorized

Hello!

The message of our church on Sunday was about relationships.

Heve you ever had trouble getting along with people at school or office?

Everyone tend to think ”I am right”.
We sometimes feel we can’t understand other people.

But each of us is different.

(Romans 12:4-5 NLT) Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, (5) so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

 

Never forget to forgive someone!

(Ephesians 4:32 NLT) Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.

 

If you have any trouble, God always help you.
Let’s pray and have great human relationships!

(Philippians 4:6-7 NLT) Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (7) Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

 

We will have Beach BBQ & Baptism event in July!

Experiencing Baptism at beach is awesome! Please come join us!

We Are Called

Uncategorized
(Ephesians 1:3-4 NKJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, (4) just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
My calling
(Isaiah 42:6 NKJV) I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness, And will hold Your hand; I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the Gentiles,
(called – OT – 800 times and NT – 225 times)
1.God chooses to choose people
a. A King: David’s story:
(1 Samuel 16:6-13 Voice) When they came, he noticed the eldest son, Eliab.
Samuel (to himself): Surely this is the one the Eternal One will anoint. Eternal One (to Samuel): (7) Take no notice of his looks or his height. He is not the one, for the Eternal One does not pay attention to what humans value. Humans only care about the external appearance, but the Eternal considers the inner character. (8) Jesse called his son Abinadab and brought him to Samuel. Samuel looked at him. Samuel: The Eternal has not chosen him either. (9) Then Jesse brought his son Shammah in front of Samuel. Samuel: The Eternal has not chosen him either. (10) Jesse walked seven of his sons in front of Samuel, and each time, Samuel refused them because the Eternal One had chosen none of them. Samuel (to Jesse): (11) Are all your sons here?
Jesse: All but the youngest. He is off keeping the sheep. Samuel: Send for him, and bring him here. We will not sit down until he arrives. (12) Jesse sent for the youngest son, David, and he came in front of Samuel. He was a handsome boy, with a healthy complexion and bright eyes. Eternal One: Rise and anoint him, because this is the one. (13) Then Samuel took the horn filled with olive oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and the Spirit of the Eternal fell strongly on David and remained from that day on. Samuel then left for Ramah.
b. A skilled artist: Bezalel’s story
(Exodus 31:1-5 Voice) Eternal One: (2) Look, I have a special calling upon one of the sons of Judah. His name is Bezalel (the son of Uri, son of Hur). (3) I have filled him with God’s Spirit, gifted him with wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and skills with a variety of crafts. (4) He is an expert designer and works well with gold, silver, and bronze. (5) He is able to cut and set gems, work with wood, and skillfully perform any craft needed to help construct the congregation tent and its furnishings.
c.12 ordinary guys’ story
(Luke 6:13 NKJV) And when it was day, He called His disciples to Himself; and from them He chose twelve whom He also named apostles:
d. Our story:
(John 15:16 NIV) You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
(1 Corinthians 1:26-31 NET) Think about the circumstances of your call, brothers and sisters. Not many were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were born to a privileged position. (27) But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong. (28) God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, (29) so that no one can boast in his presence. (30) He is the reason you have a relationship with Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, (31) so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”
2.Q&A: Why does God choose??? …He is God, that’s why!
(Romans 9:15-16 NIV) For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” (16) It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
(Romans 9:20-21 NIV) But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? “Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?'” (21) Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use?
3.What should we do?
(Romans 12:1-2 NIV) Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. (2) Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
-Say yes to God’s call
-Change your thinking
-Know his Will and do it

Let’s move forward!

When you need healing.

Uncategorized

Hello! Did you enjoy the weekend?
Sunday church was awesome!!
The message was about healing.

28432953_1492105337567086_2895118144337084416_n[1]

We sometimes need healing in our lives.
It may be physical or mental healing that we are in need of.

When you are in need of healing you don’t have to face illness alone.

God is a healer.

Many people have been healed throughout the Bible and God is still healing people today.

If you need healing now.

Let’s pray and believe God for your healing.
(1500 years before Jesus – ‘Jehovah Rapha’)
(Exodus 15:26 NKJV) and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you.”

 

Atsugi church will have many events this week!

Let’s celebrate Good Friday together on March 30th at &Village!!
