HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
Greetings to you Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park Family & Friends!
Welcome to 2018!
As we embark on this new year that God has graced us with, it is most appropriate to first give God thanks and praise! As a start, I am so grateful to have made it to this year with you! It is a glorious opportunity for a pastor to look back over the past year and see how individuals have grown in their walk with Christ. My prayer is that we continue growing spiritually as a congregation!
In my time of prayer God has placed upon me a burden for our hearts. Not the physical muscle pumping inside of your chest, but the spiritual part of you where our emotions and desires dwell. As a result, our theme this year is as follows...
“Giving God our heart” is a statement of our priority! It is a grand gesture to let God know that we are ready for God to do the miraculous and the phenomenal through and amongst us because God will get all of the glory. God wants to be your #1! We do this by giving God our heart.
The first sermon series of the year will be “New Year... New Heart” where we will explore the scriptures with the goal of answering the question: what is the heart?
God is taking us to another level spiritually and I believe 2018 will be better than years prior! Let’s give God our heart, individually and corporately, to watch the God manifest in and amongst us in glorious ways!!!
