Last week, the spirits of the youth were ignited during the week-long Youth Summer Camp. This scorching heat continues to blaze on, not just in the air, but also in the hearts of the adult watchers as they prepare to receive God’s power in this week’s Adult Summer Camp 2017. Adult watchers from all over the locale churches in Luzon gathered today at the AATF Sports Complex in Malagasang, Imus, Cavite for the opening ceremony of the Adult Summer Camp to be held from April 24-28, 2017
With the theme based on Matthew 24:14 “The Mandate of the Restored Church: Preach the Gospel to the Ends of the Earth”, Apostle Arsenio T. Ferriol explained how the PMCC 4th Watch came to be the restored church of Christ. He emphasized how God has revived His church. “It was restored when God restored the gifts of the holy spirit”, the Apostle said.
The Apostle instructed the congregation that the restored church will be the church that Christ will be coming for.
“Kailangan ang restored church lalo pa’t nalalapit na pagparito ng Panginoon.. Hindi Siya tatanggap ng Church na talunan”
Furthermore, the Apostle taught that the preaching of the gospel may not be as hard as the early christians have experienced. He encouraged to everyone that being friendly is the way to start evangelism.
“Be friendly. Ganyan si Kristo. Si Kristo ay giver. He gave His own blood for His friends.”
As Christ will come back for a triumphant and restored church, it is the duty of the members of the Pentecostal and Missionary Church of Christ in the 4th watch to preach the gospel before the end of the world.
“Bago dumating si Kristo, tapos na ang pangagaral.”
The service concludes as the spirits of the adult watchers are filled with excitement for more empowering words of God for the whole week of meditation and worship that is to come. (O. Evangelista)
