Pakistan Partnership

Posted by Rick on June 17, 2015

ISBC has entered into a partnership with a church and orphanage in Pakistan. They have changed their name to Immanuel Baptist Church in Pakistan. They are extremely focused on church planting among the minority groups in Eastern Pakistan.

Their orphanage is New Hope Christian School and Orphanage. It provides room and board for street kids in Punjab province. They have a Facebook page with more information here.

Pray for the leadership of ISBP and NHCS as they build God’s kingdom in a dark and dangerous land.

Email the pastor for information about how you can become involved with this partnership.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “God’s Bail-Out Plan” based on Acts 4:8-12:

  • The economy is in crisis.  We got that way by the irresponsible actions of many.
  • The government has tried/is trying multiple “bailout plans” to rescue the economy.
  • Two of the bailout plans seem to have failed.  The third may not do much either.
  • Our spiritual condition is in crisis.  We got that we because we sin.
  • We have tried multiple ways to get ourselves out of this mess, but nothing seems to work.
  • God decided that HE would take charge of the situation and bail us out.
  • God became Flesh and dwelt among us as Jesus Christ.
  • Jesus died for us on the cross, taking our punishment upon Him.
  • If we accept His act on our behalf, we are “bailed out” of our sin debt.
  • If we do not accept Jesus’ act on the cross, we must face the full wrath of God.

Mission Quote of the Week

Posted by Rick on August 26, 2008

“Missionary work is a grain of sand, the work untouched is a pyramid…Face it.  Look and listen, alone with God.  Then go, let go, help go.  But never, never, never think that anything short of this is being ‘interested in missions'” – Amy Carmichael
