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.
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.
Day six of creation ends with God’s blessing upon man and provision of food for all creatures. All that God made was indeed “very good”! As day seven approaches, God continues to be the center of this account. This is the day when God completed His creative work and reached a definite end. Down to the very end, God of the Bible claims authorship over all things, even down to the seven day week for which there is no natural parallel.
Man is unique. God makes this abundantly clear in His creation of the first man. He made him in His likeness and as a ruler. Much of this has been marred due to the fall, but in Christ we gain the likeness to God in His communicable attributes and we will reign with Him forever. We were also specially created for the unique oneness of marriage.
Christ rose from the dead and is alive now! In His resurrection, we have great hope. Humans die because we have sinned against God: “the wages of sin is death.” But if we hold fast the gospel of Christ, we have confident assurance that our sins are paid for and that we will rise (like Christ) unto eternal life in glory. Praise the Lord!
God claims authorship over land creatures and He groups them into three simple categories of the cattle (domesticated), the creepers (low to the ground) and the beasts of the earth (wild). What purpose did these creatures serve? As the rest of the Bible reveals, God had a supreme purpose to illustrate His eternal redemption in Christ with these creatures.
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.
Through Christ, salvation grants unity among believers and access to God.
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.
Jesus is alive! He has risen.
Jesus dies on a cross to save sinners. Truly this man was the Son of God!
The Jews reject King Jesus. They trade their Messiah for a murderer.
