Evangel Bible Church of Silicon Valley
We've been in Milpitas since 2009. We are a community of sinners saved by grace and radically transformed by the good news (evangel) of Jesus Christ. We are singles, marrieds, families, etc. who seek for our children, our neighbors, our coworkers, and all others to come to know our dear Lord and Savior. Come and join us on a Sunday to hear about Jesus Christ who forgives sinners and gives them eternal life and calls them to be His disciples.
Jesus performed astounding miracles. The Father gave the signs as His seal that Jesus is truly His Son. In the historical setting of John 6, the Lord not only fed the 5K but He also walked on water. These scientifically unexplainable miracles show that Jesus is truly who He claimed to be. And if He be God the Son, then what must we do in response? Take heed to His Word, turn away from sin and follow Him as He has called us to.
Jesus fed the 5,000, but those who ate failed to see what this signified: Jesus is the Son of God from heaven. Sadly, to them, He was just a means to an end—a way to get what they wanted. But the Lord would not succumb to this. He is God the Son, the One we are to worship, follow and trust, and He gives to His people that which He deems best: eternal life.
Do you love God? Whose message do you listen to? Where have you placed your hope? These are the final issues the Lord brings up as He helps His audience see the hardness of their own hearts. These are sanctifying warnings for believers. They are also evangelistic tools to help unbelievers rightly perceive their own standing before God.
The love of men’s praise/recognition can turn into a deep spiritual problem. For the Pharisees, this was THE issue that kept them from believing in the Lord. One cannot live for the glory of men and also have Christ. As one former Pharisee said of his past: “I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ”
The main point of Scripture is Christ. He is the central figure whom God predicted would come as the Savior of the world, who did come and whose return we now eagerly anticipate. Knowing Scripture in and of itself does not save. God’s message to man is that we embrace, love, honor and trust in His Son and be saved through Him.
Christ came into this world to save sinners. Even with the aggressive and antagonistic Pharisees who want Him dead, Christ demonstrates this heart of God. He exposes their unbelief—the callousness of their hearts to divine testimony—SO THAT they might be saved. May the Lord evermore mold our hearts to be like His.
Within the unity of the church, each member is uniquely gifted grace from Christ, and Christ also gives individuals who will prepare church members for the work or service.
Paul urges the church to live up to their new identity in Christ by bearing with others and preserving unity.
Paul prays for the Ephesians to be strengthened, to know Christ’s love, and to be divinely filled.
Paul once more points out his unworthiness to serve the Lord and His people, then he calls the gospel "the unfathomable riches of Christ” and explains God’s eternal purpose in the gospel.
Paul continues on with the concept of unity within the church by pointing to his own undeserved ministry to the Gentiles and to the revealed mystery of Gentiles being joined together with Jewish believers in the church.
Paul explains the foundation and purpose of the spiritual family of God - the church.
Cornelius was a God-fearing man. But, he was a Gentile! Would God save the Gentiles just like He did the Jews?
Saul, who had heartily approved of Stephen’s death, continued to be a man who wanted kill Christians. But, as he was on his way to capture them in Damascus, Jesus appeared to him and stopped him in his tracks. Saul completely changes!
God tells Philip to a go to a desert road. What could possibly be there?
On the day that Stephen died, a great persecution toward all Christians began. Christians who were in danger scattered. Did this prevent God’s church from growing?
Some Jews made up lies against Stephen, one of God’s chosen servants in the church. Stephen explained that the things they said against him were actually true of the Jews. They did not take this well.
The first believers in Jerusalem had practical love for one another. But, not everyone in their midst was like this. God dealt severely with two individuals who lied about their giving.
Jesus has the power to restore crippled bodies, sinful souls, and all creation.
You don’t need to see Jesus to believe in Him.
The Holy Spirit arrives, Peter boldly preaches the risen Christ in Jerusalem, and the church begins.
Jesus shows Himself to the apostles and gives them a global mission.
