Where is our head office?
We do not have such a location on earth! We are solely responsible to our Risen and Glorified Head, the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts. 20:28. However, we do enjoy fellowship with other believers from other churches meeting in the same manner around the world. (1 Corinthians 1:2)
Who is our minister?
We do not have a paid pastor, or minister. There are elders or overseers who seek to shepherd the saints, and different people who share the responsibility of preaching the gospel on Sunday nights. (Acts 20:17, 28.)
People attending the services in the Gospel Hall are surprised when no collection is taken. The expenses incurred are fully met by the Christians who regularly meet at the Gospel Hall. You can come and hear the Gospel of the grace of God preached freely, without a moral obligation to join, or a financial obligation to contribute. (1 Corinthians 9:18)
Lord’s Day: 10am Lord’s Supper (Breaking of bread)
Following the teaching of the Lord and the examples of the early Christians, we meet on the first day of every week to remember the Lord Jesus and His death for us. The first hour of the meeting is for worship and congregational singing. Without pre-arrangement, the meeting is open for men in the church fellowship to stand and lead the congregation in praise and worship. The worship is followed by the taking of the bread and wine by members of the church. The Lord Jesus Himself instituted this practice in Luke 22:19, 20. The meeting usually concludes with one man sharing a message from the Bible.
Following this meeting, refreshments are served in the lower level from 11:30 to 12 noon.
12pm Sunday School and Adult Bible Study
The Sunday school commences with the children singing children’s hymns with the adults. Then the children separate into classes according to age.
At the same time, an adult Bible study is held upstairs. The Bible study is opened by an overview of the chapter being considered followed by a detailed discussion.
7pm Gospel Service
The gospel we preach is that “Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day” 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. The gospel meeting is opened with congregational singing and prayer. Two prearranged speakers then share the meeting. They read one or more Bible texts before presenting the clear message about God’s way of salvation.
In this meeting, we emphasize the Bible’s call to repent from sin and personally accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Since this is an individual matter, no “altar calls” are ever held; personal conversation regarding this vital matter, however, is always available if desired.
Thursday: 7:30pm Prayer and Bible Study
The meeting is divided into two sections: the first for prayer and the latter for systematic Bible study. The purpose of the Bible study is to learn the truths of the Word of God and to gain instruction from it that will help us in our daily lives.
