“The Glory of this latter house shall be greater than that of the former, said the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace said the Lord of hosts.”
– Haggai 2:9 –
We look up and we see the glory of the Lord coming down upon SIBKLCC and we know that despite the many difficulties and issues that have been encountered by our church, the latter house shall certainly be greater than that of the former. The journey has been fraught with challenges but our God has been faithful and we are humbled by the abundant grace and favor that has been showered upon us (1 John 3:13-15) This is a season for change and unless we are prepared of the change that will come, we will not fulfill the mandate that God has given to us. It is clear
that we must re-dedicate ourselves as we move forward to fulfill the vision that God has given to us. What God has started in SIBKLCC, he will surely complete
“Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of this spring the issues of life.”
– Proverbs 4:23 –
Pastor Inky was a successful Businesswoman before she was called into the Ministry. She has a heart for prayer and intercession. She was formerly actively involved with the interchurch Prayer and Intercession Ministries. Pastor Inky is a woman who believes in fervent and consistent prayer, miraculous take place in her life as she prays for things to take place and for people to be healed.
Over the past 19 years, she has led 宣恩会 SIBKLCC to a strong path of growth and today, the church has been blessed richly by God. Pastor Inky and the Leaders of the church are looking forward to the next decade with hope and vibrancy and they believe that in hard economic times, the ground is fertile ground for lives.
Simple words but inherently empowering! Unless there is real love in a church, there will not be genuine unity and camaraderie. Whilst a church should be a sanctuary and a holy place, it should also be a venue where a clear ‘’family feeling’’ is engendered.
Unless love shines through, a church will be cold and distant. It is time for SIBKLCC to foster a clear culture where love becomes a clear key in its move forward. There should a focus on others and less on ourselves. Our church should have closeness where the warmth is shared.
Whilst this objective is not easy, the call upon our lives is to be a blessing to others. People who come to SIBKLCC should come away with the experience of having learnt clear lessons for life and feel that they have been blessed by the presence of God and where God is honored. Our church is a place of manifold blessings and people will feel the goodness that is emanated.
All too often, churches cater to only the spiritual needs of the community and forget that people have other needs that are almost as important for them in a world where they need to survive and thrive. The church needs the skills and resources that they have to bless a world where skills, business expertise is relevant. Yet, the foundational gel that binds all the objectives together should be bible based and spirit filled.
