From the Pastor's Desk
From The Pastor’s Pen
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer as I praise God from whom all blessings flow for this is a place where The Messiah reigns. He has the freedom to do what he wants to do with the church purchased and paid in full with His blood. In honor of His presence, grace, and glory, we remain constant as we embrace Him with our worship and touch Him with our Praise!
We are always in the season of thanksgiving and I want to first, thank God for my Messiah family. I have observed and benefited from the outpouring of love among the saints— a church family who displays their love for God, each other, the community and the first family. I thank God for you, the yearning to learn, the desire for spiritual growth, as well as, the financial growth and the joy of giving. As a family, we know that we are stronger and so much better together. Psalm 133:1 says, "Behold, how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" We know that "THE GOD WE SERVE IS ENOUGH.” "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19)
As we humbly and faithfully do God’s will, we must be "TOTALLY COMMITTED" to the mandate that God has given to the church through His word. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:19-20) In order for us to go, we must remain equipped (Ephesians 4:11-12). Now that we are in the third phase of our ministry, we must forever strive in our "LIVING THE LIFE FOR CHRIST."
Jesus said in John 9:4, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” We are a body of believers that believe in The Word of God and in the power of prayer. I pray as we continue to move forward that God will continue to shower his blessings upon us like never before.
I thank God for the privilege to be the Servant Leader to such a great group of people. I am blessed beyond measure in every area of my life. As the first family of Messiah, I, my Beautiful Queen, Lady Teresa, son Jared, and daughter Maia stand in solidarity in our love, support, and prayers in our assigned ministry to Messiah. We give God all the glory!
With Much Love and More Thanks,
Pastor Jeffrey L. & Lady Teresa Harden
