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.
What an amazing person is the Lord Jesus Christ, who never misapplied the sovereignty of the Father but always fully obeyed His commands. Even while people were grumbling (about Him!), our Lord is unfazed and He stays focused on what God is sovereignly accomplishing. May the Spirit of our God conform us evermore to Jesus’ wonderful and wondrous likeness.
Our guest speaker gives us an encouragement from the fledgling (yet exemplary!) church of the Thessalonians. They were a church remembered for their fruitfulness, their faithfulness, their discipleship and their reputation as a people truly converted from their idolatrous past.
Spiritual hunger and thirst are real. And apart from faith in Christ, the longing for spiritual life will never be satisfied. God sent His Son into the world to give THIS life (and that eternally!) to those who believe. But if eyewitnesses of Jesus’ miracles (the crowd) did not believe, who would ever believe? Jesus’ answer reveals a divine truth about true believers.
The crowd goes to great lengths to catch up with Jesus but is spiritually blind. In the Lord’s conversation with them, we see four marks of their spiritual blindness: preoccupation with the needs of this life, neglect of the work of faith, heedlessness to the sign of God, and incorrigibility with regard to the words of the Lord. May we not be blind as they.
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.
Paul testifies of what Christ taught us about conversion: a clean break from the former life and an adoption of the new, which involves a continual renewal of the mind.
Paul explains the purpose of ministry: maturity of the church unto the fulness of Christ that comes through the contribution of every member.
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 of 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.
Have you ever been on a boat in the open sea? How was the weather? Imagine… lots of rain and wind… dangerous weather. Do you think you could make it out of this big storm? Well, Paul did but not by his doing. God brought him out of the storm and to Rome for a very important reason. Let’s find out how and why!
Paul is in Athens and finds a city full of idols. What does he do? He preaches the Gospel to all the people there everyday! What is this Gospel message that Paul preaches? Let’s find out!
Some men started teaching the Gentiles that they couldn’t be saved unless they were Jewish, but this was wrong. We will see how the church overcomes this false teaching.
King Herod began arresting Christians to hurt them, because he wanted to please people and receive praise for himself. But, God protects Peter through the prayers of the saints. What does God do when Herod even receives God’s praise for himself?
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.
