Responding to Mission’s Minefields

Newton Chilingulo is a supported GO Partner of Bethany Baptist Church. He serves as Pastor of Reformation Bible Church in Lilongwe, Malawi, and is a graduate of Christ Seminary in South Africa, where he sat under the instruction of fellow Bethany GO Partner, Dave Beakley. Newton and his family joined us in Peoria (along with five additional GO Partners) for our annual Global Outreach Conference, a five-day focus on missions work across the country and throughout the world.

Ties That Bind

This week, we welcomed special guest Ron Zappia, Senior Pastor of Highpoint Church in the Chicago area as he taught from Ecclesiastes 4:9-12. We were not created to live in isolation and this passage shows us that a healthy church community stands alongside and lifts one another up through every season of life.

In Grave Sin: Worship Through Confession

Worship sees God as the All-Sufficient Creator, the Loving Savior, and the Holy King that He is and then looks in faith for Him to be God to us. We worship God when we confess our sins to Him and ask for Him to forgive and cleanse us.
