The Church in Smyrna | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

The Seven Churches – Part 2

Revelation 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

The church in Smyrna was suffering tribulation from the Jews which blaspheme the Lord Jesus Christ. Believers are called to be faithful unto death to earn a crown of life.

The Church of Ephesus | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

The Seven Churches – Part 1

Revelation 2:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

The church of Ephesus was a church which had left their first love which led to not doing the first works. When a church forgoes the great commission, the Lord threatens to remove its position as one of his candlesticks.

Preparing for Church | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

Ezra 7:10 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.

Church preparation is important to get the most out of your attendance. Expect to hear from God and do your part to edify the body of Christ.

The Local Church | Jason Parkin

Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

The local church is a place where God’s people can find rest from the world and be fed the word of God. This highlights the importance of having good pastors that serve the congregation with compassion.

Raising the Bar | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

New Life Baptist Church thanks God for his numerous blessings and provisions in our first year. But it’s not time to get comfortable, it’s time to build on what Christ has started and do even greater works for the Lord.

My Grace is Sufficient (2 Corinthians 12) | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

If you are suffering with a “thorn in the flesh” it is a time to glory. God intends to use your weakness so that you would rely wholly upon his grace demonstrating true spiritual strength.

God-Ordained Institutions | Pastor Kevin Sepulveda

Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

God has ordained four institutions with an authority structure to keep things orderly; the family, the government, the business/workplace, and the church. God holds the head accountable for each institution they lead.
