Revival is definitely a Biblical concept! Revival is a time where a child of God is “stirred up” once again concerning the spiritual life. This may happen when the believer has become cold-hearted and is under the bondage of sinful habits or simply carelessness. Revival may also be a stirring in the heart of the Christian concerning the next step he or she needs to take spiritually.
The Bible indicates that we should be concerned about corporate revival (Psalm 85:6 Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?), personal revival (Psalm 138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me) and ministry revival (Habakkuk 3:2 O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.)
We are excitedly anticipating a reviving work of the Holy Spirit during our special services with Dr. John Van Gelderen on Sunday through Tuesday, March 24-26. On Sunday morning Dr. Van Gelderen will be speaking to combined Sunday School Classes in the auditorium at 9:45 AM. He will also be speaking in the 11:00 AM service as well as our service at 6:00 PM. The services on Monday and Tuesday will begin at 6:30 PM.
If you do not have a church home where you attend regularly, we would like to extend a cordial invitation to join us for these important services.
God bless you!
