About our Church and What We Do
- December 12, 2016
God’s Abiding Presence Ministries is the work started by Pastor Mattie to continue her work in serving the Lord through serving those who have less in the communities she has touched. This ministries has been the fruit of her seeds of compassion, love, and service to mankind, and her faithfulness to God’s calling for the great commission.
Destiny house is the place where we worship, praise, and celebrate the word of the Lord. We meet there every Sunday for our regular service at 2PM. We also conduct bible studies on Wednesdays to further deepen our congregations’ knowledge and love of the Lord. Very soon, on January 2017, we will start our phone and online conferencing every Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9PM to 10PM to further reinforce our presence and coherence as family members. We welcome everyone to join us especially on Sundays to bask in the goodness and wonder of being in the presence of the majestic and holy god.
Our faith is rooted in our God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We live our lives in accordance to His truth and commandments, found only in the Holy Bible, which in itself is God-breathed. We believe that salvation if only through faith, which is a gift from God, and that is grace. We can never earn nor deserve our salvation by good works, customs, or religious activities. Only by the blood of Christ are we saved, and as He was resurrected, so will everyone who believes in Him, on His appointed day.
Though we cannot be saved by good works, we have been saved for good works. Because even God, himself, did not spare His Son for us, we will also dedicate our lives in the service of those who need us. We provide counseling, trainings, feeding, and empowerment programs geared specially for the women, widows, and children who are in dire need of our support. We are also here to provide an avenue for generous and helpful souls who want to give and be a part of our worthwhile cause.
Our work in and for the Lord does not stop here and now. We know that the Lord will lead us to more souls to save and lives to lead. We highly encourage you to join us today if you have been burdened to make a difference. We even hope to see you in our church this coming Sunday to taste and see that the Lord is good.
