“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously” (2 Corinthians 9:6).

Posted by on 6:27 am in Blog, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Every 1st Saturday of the month, the community becomes abuzz with excitement. Years ago, it was just an event with only a few people in attendance—mostly leaders & workers of the church. But because God is the main attraction of the said event, each Soaking now fills the SFCC Worship Hall from wall to wall. Add to that, families who have migrated to faraway places still come over to San Fernando once a month to experience this intimate one-on-one communing with God as worship & exultation erupts and fills the whole room.

Real meaning and significance comes from understanding and fulfilling God’s purposes for putting us on earth. It makes life easier and more satisfying, and yes, more fun! At SFCC, every move and every step is geared towards glorifying Jesus. Even simple baby dedications and birthday celebrations are opportunities to minister to the lost.

Jennifer, Dhaniel’s mom, saw this not just a special day to dedicate her offspring to the Lord, but also as an opportunity to share the Good...

Jesus is the author & finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). He is guiding us, leading us, shepherding us from our initial faith to a bigger faith. He empowers us not just to survive this life, but to thrive.  He leads us from merely living to winning.

This weekend, SFCC celebrated another milestone in the lives of the PEPSOL trainees—people who are willing to be trained, shaped, and molded according to Jesus’ plan. Race, gender, social status, and age are irrelevant. What is important is the heart—the willingness to upgrade one’s quality of life. In fact, the youngest School of Leaders 1 graduate in the history of SFCC graduated salutatorian. Van Isaac Allam is only 11 years old and yet he already understands that every believer is a catalyst for change. Like all...
