North Valley Baptist Church is hosting their 31st annual youth conference this month and we're registering. The cost is $160 for registration and hotel, and $15 for gas. Contact Brother Scott if you would like to attend.
At New Hope Baptist Church there's a thriving Spanish ministry led by Pastor David Aguilar. This coming Sunday they're celebrating their seventh anniversary since their inception.
This is an incredible Spanish church in Santa Rosa, and ministers to the Hispanic community through outreach, fellowship, food and family gatherings, and many classes for all ages. If you or part of your family speaks or prefers Spanish, join the New Hope Baptist Church Spanish ministry on Sunday at 10 AM for some old-fashioned singing and preaching from the Word of God.
It's located at:
3360–D Coffee Ln.,
Santa Rosa, CA 95403
If you're looking for an Independent Fundamental Baptist Church in Sonoma County, consider New Hope Baptist Church in Santa Rosa. New Hope Baptist Church is an excellent family-friendly church, and takes an old-fashioned approach to preaching God's Word. While many local churches have trended toward modern, contemporary worship services, short shallow sermons, and seeker friendly messages, New Hope Baptist Church is focused on creating an environment where God is honored and the Bible is preached with conviction.
Some things that make New Hope Baptist Church special:
Dr. Arthur Maricle loves the Lord and loves people, and recognizes that people want and NEED to hear the truth. Just as a doctor who won't give you the bad news about a medical condition can't help you regain your health, a pastor who is afraid to preach the truth of God's Word can never help people gain spiritual health and a closer walk with God.
Dr. Maricle is extremely friendly and welcoming of visitors, and does an excellent job of teaching and preaching the scriptures in such a way that everyone is spiritually fed from the Word of God.
New Hope Baptist Church believes strongly that the Great Commission of Matthew 28:16-20 still applies to Christians today. Jesus instructed the disciples to share the good news of the Gospel with the world, and we still follow his prompting on a regular basis both personally and as a regular church activity.
Hymns of the Faith:
At New Hope Baptist Church you won't find electric guitars, drums, or a rock band leading the worship service. While the song services are encouraging and exciting, the great hymns of the faith and the truths they contain are still treasured and will never be contaminated by rock music.
Authorized King James Bible: New Hope Baptist Church believes the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, as they are preserved in the Authorized King James Version, to be the inspired Word of God. Read more here: http://www.newhopenews.net/what-we-believe
Spanish Ministry: At New Hope Baptist Church there is a thriving Spanish Ministry which holds a simultaneous service in "la lengua de Cielo" as they call it. The Spanish Pastor, David Aguilar, does a fantastic job of ministering to the Spanish speaking community.
Sunday School Classes for all Ages: New Hope Baptist Church has an excellent Teen ministry, a Children's Church, a "Great Commission Kids" class for learning about missionaries, a Creation Science Investigation class, a Beginners class for 4-6 year olds, Tiny Tots for toddlers, and a clean, organized nursery.
Last week we had the pleasure of having John Nordstrom from AAA Ministries visit and conduct a soul-winning seminar with over 40 people in attendance.
The Bible says in Proverbs 11:30 "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise."
Brother Nordstrom's training is designed to equip Christians to give a clear, understandable presentation of the Gospel so they can witness to Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime (AAA). Being someone who lives what he teaches gives him the ability to teach from personal experience and set an example for other Christians who may be too shy to share the Gospel.
I've personally attended his training on 3 or 4 occasions, and every time I do I learn something that helps me immensely. While every Christian should be able to share their faith, training them how to communicate effectively to help someone else understand their lost condition and their need for a Savior should be a fundamental part of every Church's outreach program. Thank you brother Nordstrom!
