Preach the Gospel (1 Corinthians 9) | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

 

1 Corinthians 9:16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! 

Preaching the gospel is the greatest way to honour and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The church worker who preaches the gospel should also be able to live of the gospel.

Soul Winning Mega Marathon 2018 – Nambour, Sunshine Coast QLD

Matthew 9:37-38 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Summary:

  • 31 in attendance
  • 13 soul winners preaching the gospel
  • 8 souls saved in Nambour

Morning Session

Meeting at a hall in Nambour, we had 10 soul winners divided into 5 groups who went preaching the gospel. There were 5 souls saved that morning.

Those who stayed behind in the hall with the children watched videos on Soul Winning for Beginners to equip them for future opportunities.

 

Lunch

Everyone was deserving of a well earned rest and light lunch. It is always exciting to exchange stories of the people who were spoken to at the door or on the street.

 

Afternoon Session

With a slight change of silent partners, 9 individuals continued knocking the doors on their designated maps. There was an additional 3 souls who received Jesus as their saviour in the afternoon.

 

Church Service & Dinner

We ended the day with a church service which was a great time of rejoicing over the 8 souls saved. It was a time for singing praises, bible reading, and preaching of sermons. Needless to say, dinner was enjoyed by all.

 

The sermons can be heard in full below:

Soul Winning for Beginners | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

While many churches today are primarily focused with internal activities, the first work which Jesus commissioned and commanded grows largely neglected. In an effort to combat this tide, The Church in Caloundra has set the goal of knocking on the door of every house in the Sunshine Coast with the hope of giving a clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

These videos are to equip the beginner with enough tools to confidently present the gospel in any situation.

Our First Sunday Church Gathering

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

On our first Sunday we had 66 in the congregation with attendees from Sunshine Coast, Sydney and other parts of Queensland (Brisbane, Gympie, and Ipswich). It was a historic moment filled with great fellowship and praise for our Lord God.

Pastor Sepulveda preached on the great commission given by Jesus Christ to his disciples. The whole church were in agreement with three key church goals that were set in place.

Soul Winning Marathon 2017

John 4:37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.

As part of the church launch, we held the second soul winning marathon on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday the 30th September 2017.

The event was co-hosted by The Church in Caloundra and The Church in Punchbowl which had 19 of their members make the interstate trek from Sydney. We also had others attend from outside the Sunshine Coast region.

We prioritised preaching the gospel in the suburb of Aroona but also had some teams continue working on last years maps in Little Mountain. An effort was made to pair up most teams with one from QLD and the other from NSW to create new friendships.

Following the morning and afternoon soul winning, we gathered together for a time of worship with three salvation testimonies given from Anthony Griffen, Nathan Martincich, and Pastor Tey.

The whole family is invited. As we did last year, children and one of their parents are welcome to remain at the meeting hall for fellowship while those who are soul-winning will be out knocking doors and preaching the gospel. The meeting location has a large sporting grass field so the children are free to run around and kick balls.
