Is there evidence of your time with Jesus? – Co-op City Baptist Church

Church Building Fund

“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!

Is there evidence of your time with Jesus?

Sermon for Sunday June 10, 2018

Scripture: Acts 4:5-14

Text: Acts 4:13

Theme: Is there evidence of your time with Jesus?

This passage of scripture speaks of the first persecution of the church. There are several challenging lessons for Christian service clearly seen in the experience.

1. Peter and John arrested and tried (v.1).
2. They suffered abuse because they preached the resurrection (v.2-4).
3. They credited Christ with the power to heal and to change lives (v.5-10).
4. They proclaimed salvation in Christ alone (v.11-12).
5. They gave evidence that they had been with Jesus (v.13-14).
6. They suffered threats (v.15-18).
7. They refused to compromise their message (v.19-20).
8. The result: all men glorified God (v.21-22).

We pray that you will come and worship with us. Sunday Morning Services are held 8:00 and 11:00. Sunday School is 9:15. We look forward to worshipping together.

May God Bless you and your family richly.
