The Race Is Yours!
February 13th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

During these days of the school of prophets, we have been on an intense journey to know our own spirits.

How Do We Grow A Local Church?
February 13th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

The focus of this morning was the local church – and it started with Monte Siao.

The Foundation Of The Local Church Is Love
February 12th, 2018 – Posted by Silas Esteves

1 Thessalonians 2:5-12 is the scriptural basis of the foundation of the local church. Paul defines the expression of love as,“ a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children, imploring each one of you as a father would his own children” (1 Thessalonians 2:7, 11). The local church must be a family with spiritual fathers and mothers who mature […]
