Justified By Faith – 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!

Justified By Faith

Sermon for Sunday September 2, 2018

Scripture: Romans 5:1-5

Text: Romans 5:1

Theme: Justified By Faith

Outline of Scripture Passage:

1. Justification is by faith (v.1).
2. There is peace with God (v.1).
3. There is access into the grace, the favor and the presence of God (v.2).
4. There is hope for the glory of God (v.2).
5. There is glory in trials and sufferings (v.3-5).
6. There is the continuous experience of God’s love through the indwelling Spirit (v.5).

This Sunday we will speak about being justified by faith. We will show how God justifies a person because of His Son Jesus Christ. When a person believes in Jesus Christ, God takes that person’s faith and counts it as righteousness. The person is not righteous, but God considers and credits the person’s faith as righteousness.

We welcome you to come and worship with us this Sunday morning. We still have our summer hours, there is only one worship service at 9:00. We urge you to come and receive the blessing that God has waiting for you.
