What an incredible, difficult, wonderful, happy, hard, easy, scary, joyous year 2019 has been. God really has done such great things in our church this past year. Some, He has done through the hardship and some he has done through joy and celebration.
This should not come as a surprise to any of us since God clearly called us to the obedience of being transformed individuals and a transformed church that brings transformation to our neighbourhood and the world.
Without a doubt, the biggest outward sign to that ongoing transformation was the introduction of our growing and changing identity in the form of our new brand. Home Ground Westville Baptist Church.
As we discover what our increasing maturity in Christ looks like and as we live out the value of The Kingdom of Jesus Christ there will be.
Times of Testing
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." - James 1:2
Times of Celebration
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever." - 1 Chronicles 16:34
Times of Growth
"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ. From Him the whole body joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does it work." - Ephesians 4:15
I look forward to 2020 where God transforms each of us and our Church, and Community to be more and more like Him.
Your fellow pilgrim,
