Are You A Witness? – Co-op City Baptist Church

Church Building Fund

$2,690 of $0 raised


“The doctors said I probably wouldn’t live very long….”  

Our founding pastor, the late Rev. Julius Sasportas, would often share the story of his fragile start in life. But he defied the odds and lived for over 90 years.

Rev. Sasportas’ experience is a metaphor for the Co-op City Baptist Church.

We’ve had to scrape, sacrifice and fight for everything. Although we’ve been knocked down many times, by God’s grace, we have never been KNOCKED OUT.

Any day now, cranes will arrive on the site, and the “digging” will begin!

Our new church edifice will include a state-of-the-art facility to house a comprehensive youth education and recreational program.

But, we can do more things faster for our kids if we’re not in debt. Working in the red is why many large community-based projects shut down. And we will not fail these kids! We need to earn $100,000 in a year.

Kindly donate, and share this link through social media so others can join this effort.

It’s easy to say you want our kids to excel in math, reading, technology and science, but will you actively support such an outcome?

Even if you don’t know us, please do this **(seriously)** …

Pray over your credit card. Then make your donation as a love offering to God. He will bless you for being a blessing to children.  Thank you!

Are You A Witness?

Sermon for Sunday December 16, 2018

Scripture: John 1:6-8

Text: John 1:7

Theme: Are You A Witness?

1. A man sent from God (v.6)
2. A man with a mission (v.7)
3. A man who was great, but was not the Light (v.8)

John the Baptist, was a true witness for Jesus the Christ. John’s sole purpose on earth was to witness and bear testimony to the Light of the world. His purpose stands as an example for every believer. The purpose of the believer is to bear the same witness as John: Jesus Christ is the Light of the world.

Are you a witness for Jesus the Christ? Letting others know in Word and Deed that Jesus saves?

We pray that you will come and worship with us when you have the opportunity. Our Sunday services are held at 8:00 and 11:00, with Sunday School at 9:15. We also have a noon day service on Wednesdays with Bible Study Classes at 1:00 & 7:30. Every other week there is a 5:00 class on Wednesdays.

May God continue to bless you and your family.
