True Love… Jesus died for you and me!!!

True Love… Jesus took away our sin by going to the cross, so we could have eternal life. Christ died for us even while we were still sinners.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

Only the blood of Jesus can wash away our sin. Jesus died on the cross for you and for me. They put Him in a tomb. God raised Jesus from the dead on the third day. He appeared to many people after he arose from the dead and before He returned to His Father in heaven. It is through our faith in Jesus that we are saved. Our only way to heaven is Jesus. He paid the penalty for our sin.

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.”

Nothing we can do on our own can save us. It is only through Jesus, who paid the penalty on the cross for us.

The Bible says in Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Are you trusting in Christ for your salvation?

John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Jesus loves us so much that He died on the cross for us! You can receive Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord of your life. Talk to God and pray by saying,

Lord Jesus, I love you. I ask you to forgive me of my sin. I know that you died on the cross for me. I know that you were raised from the dead. Jesus, I know you are the only way. Jesus, I confess you are the Lord and Savior of my life. I want to live my life for you. Jesus, please help me to do my best for you Lord.

In Jesus name, Amen!

This is true love. Accept the free gift from God! The best gift is you, when you share Jesus with others. The greatest gift is Jesus. Remember to share Jesus with your friends and family. There is no greater gift you can give, than to lead someone to the Savior. Christ is coming, be ready!

In Christ's Love,

Bro. Frank

2022 Annual Church Profiles (ACP’s)- It is important for Missouri Baptist Convention to know what is happening “statistically” in our churches and missions. The data gathered from our churches and missions provides assistance to the Missouri Baptist Convention and our Association in planning how to best serve God’s churches, and it also guides Southern Baptist Convention agencies in funding Missouri church resources. (Some examples of things the statistics are used for prioritizing areas of the state where evangelism and new churches are most needed; to help us look for trends in membership, worship attendance, giving, etc.; and identifying the ways in which we can minister to the people in our community and reaching lost souls for Christ.

Every church and mission is asked to complete an Annual Church Profile (ACP) providing statistics. We also need the names of your church leaders in each congregation along with the current phone numbers, address, and e-mail address. Please do your very best to fill it out completely. Why? We use the leaders’ current contact information to let them know about upcoming events. We also want to send them a copy of the newsletter online.

Once the Annual Church Profile (ACP) worksheet is completed your church secretary or ACP clerk can enter your statistics online or drop it off at our SRBA office at 203 East Maple, Curryville, MO (We have a drop box), or mail it to SRBA, P.O. Box 368, Bowling Green, MO 63334. The church leadership information can be updated all year long from the online website. And this church leadership information is where the mailing lists for the Missouri Baptist Convention are updated. Thank you in advance for all your hard work in helping us collect this valuable information. Your church family will be receiving your ACP shortly. Thank you for your cooperation. May God bless you. For more information, call Amy at 573-470-9340.

Vacation Bible School Workers… You make a huge difference! You may not always see it, but trust me, it’s worth every ounce of energy when you get to see the outcome of a changed life. Children’s minds are like sponges. They are always learning. They pick up on more than you realize. Therefore we must take our jobs seriously. You don’t just serve snacks, teach a class, or clean the bathrooms. Every job is just as important. When all is said and done… and a child comes to Christ, their family comes to Christ; their grandparents come to Christ… It’s worth everything!!! Don’t take it for granted. Vacation Bible School is very vital. I appreciate you churches for working together and reaching this world for Jesus. To every church who has VBS, you are in my prayers. We must continue praying and asking the Holy Spirit to move in the lives of these little people. For we all know that VBS is only the beginning. Follow-up is very important. May our awesome God bless you with strength and meet your every need. To God be the glory!!! Sincerely, Amy

Truths to Remember & Pray in Your Prayer Closet.

  • I am loved. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
  • I am forgiven. Matthew 26:27-28 “Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”
  • I am chosen. 1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
  • God’s Word is a lamp to my feet. Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”
  • We’ve been given armor. Ephesians 6:10-18 “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
  • The Holy Spirit intercedes for me. Romans 8:26-27 “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.”
  • He who is in me is greater than he who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”
  • The Lord is my help. Psalm 121:1-2 “I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
  • Praise silences the enemy. Psalm 8:1-3 “Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”
  • God is working it all out for my good. Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
