We have a strong conviction to acquire a property that can serve as our main church building. Our members are wonderfully working together to raise money for the purchase of our own church property. We have made applications and expressed our interest in a number of properties in Bristol. As we await the outcome of those applications, our natural eyes and ears remain open for other buildings and land. Our spiritual eyes and ears remain tuned in prayer for His will concerning our more permanent home. You are invited to pray with us on this.
Far above our conviction to build a church building is the conviction to maintain the the building of a church. Isaiah 66:2 says,
“For all those things My hand has made,
And all those things exist,”
Says the Lord.
“But on this one will I look:
On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit,
And who trembles at My word.”
We believe it would a tragedy for us to have a nice church building without God’s church in it. With that in mind, we are making better progress in building the church than building a church building.
