Today we are on the other side of our Church’s Anniversary service. As we move toward our 40th year of existence, I would like us to consider several questions. One, what makes VBBC unique? I may use the next several weeks to answer these questions. There are many answers to this question, because there are many things that make us unique from churches.

One of the things that make us unique is, we are not a Protestant church. Many times, over the years we have been called Protestants. But this name is attached to the churches that came out of the Roman Church such as the Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal, and even the Pentecostal movement. These can all be traced back to a time when they were apart of the Roman Church. Each one of these had a leader that protested the doctrine of the Roman Church and pulled out, forming their own denomination. The Baptist were never apart of the Roman Church and can trace their body of doctrine back to the time of Christ, though not always called Baptist.

Another unique thing about our Church is we are not apart of any denomination. We are an Independent Baptist Church. This means there is no ecclesiastical body outside our Church that governs us. We are an autonomous body of believers that has banded ourselves together under the authority of the Bible itself. We do have a governing document taken from commands and principles of Scripture called a Constitution and Statement of Faith, so that we function, “Decently and in order.” This helps to function as a Church to take care of our business and ministry.

The last thing I will deal with this week that makes us unique as a Church is we have two offices and two ordinances of the Church. Many churches have created many different offices, committees, and positions to do the work of the Church. But there are only two offices: the office of a pastor and of a deacon. The word pastor means shepherd, thus describing the office of the pastor as the shepherd or leader of the Church. The word deacon means servant, which describes his office as that of a servant. In Acts 7 this office is pictured as helping the pastor carry out the service to the widows, who were being neglected. Then the two ordinances, the first of the Lord’s Supper, consisting of unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine. This pictures our Lord’s sacrifice for our sin and was to be observed in remembrance of His death on the cross. The second is the ordinance of baptism, was given to picture Christ’s death, burial, and His resurrection. This was to be practiced for everyone who became a disciple of Christ at salvation.

These are some of the things that makes our Church unique and each of these things are given to us from God’s word the Bible.

This Anniversary day is celebrated because there was a beginning. There has been, “A lot of water under the bridge,” since that 1st Sunday. If all the folks that had been saved or influenced by this Church and her former Pastors were still here, there would be no place to seat them. It would have to be an outdoor service! Obviously, they are not still here. Some have preceded us in going to heaven. Some are serving in other ministries. Some have been wounded in the Spiritual warfare that Satan and his army has launched against our Lord and His children and are not going to any Church. Never the Less, the Church is still here and is still desiring to follow our Lord until He comes or calls us home. This would be a good time to mention that our mission at Victory Bible Baptist Church is not to build a big congregation. I, as the Pastor, am not trying to build a monument to myself or anyone else. Our goal is very simple: it is to make disciples of all nations by leading them to receive Christ as their Saviour. Then, according to Scripture, to baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Our next responsibility is to teach these folks to observe all the things the Lord Himself taught His disciples. These instructions were given to the Disciples by Christ after His resurrection. As simple as this is, it’s really the program God instituted to reach the World. So, that means this is the program God designed to reach our families, our communities, and our Nation. It’s the program our missionaries are to use on the foreign field.

This brings up and interesting point. How much of what goes on in Churches today is fulfilling God’s final instructions that was given to the Apostles? How much of what is being taught to the Churches has anything to do with what Jesus taught the Apostles? How much of the programs in the Churches of today are fulfilling the whole of our Lord’s last instructions? Here is another interesting thought: how much or the problems we face today in our homes, our Churches, and our Country is a direct result of the failure to fulfill that last part of our Lord’s final instructions? Remember, untrained children become unrestrained adults! This rings true with new believers as well: untrained believers will become the future problems in our Churches if they are put into areas of leadership or responsibility. The future hope of Victory Bible Baptist Church will rest in how we carry out our Lord’s final instructions. Are you a part of this problem or will you become a part of the solution? Where will our Church be in 39 more years? Something to ponder…….

This week as I have prayed, read, visited, and counseled with folks, I have noticed some common threads that run through our lives. Many, if not most, of our problems stem from the same common cause. We are making choices and decisions based on experience, logic, feelings, emotions, or what we want. Thus, all our decisions are made from the soul, (The mind, the will, or the emotions). According to the Scripture, we are commanded to be filled with the Sprit in Ephesians 5:18. To be filled with the Spirit, would be to be controlled by the Spirit. The Spirit’s ministry, as is explained in John 16:1-15, is to convince the world of sin, or righteousness, and of judgement, as well as to guide us in all truth. In John 8:32, Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.” While I understand is initially referring to Christ, as He is called the Truth, it is also referring to the Word of God. The more of the truth we know and apply the more victory in our lives we will experience. So, if we are filled with the Spirit and we search the Scriptures with the Spirit’s guidance, doesn’t it stand to reason we would have less problems of our own creating? Wouldn’t it put us in a place to be used by our Lord, because we would be filled with the Spirit? Wouldn’t being filled with the Spirit and being guided in the Word of God by the Spirit cause us to have the right priorities? Wouldn’t being filled with the Spirit and being guided by the Spirit cause to listen to holy music and watch things on television that honour God’s pattern of the home? Wouldn’t being filled with the Spirit and guided by the Word of God, cause us to forgive our offenders and Christ also forgave His offenders? If being filled with the Spirit is a command of God, doesn’t that make it our choice? If being filled with the Spirit is a command to be obeyed, doesn’t that make is sin if we are not filled with the Spirit? WOW!! Something very serious to ponder……

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with
the Spirit;
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of
the flesh.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
…….. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Every trial is an opportunity for us to trust God and for Him to show Himself strong in our lives! Job knew God could be trusted with his life and that everything he had belonged to God. So, if He wants it He can have it, even my life! DLT ...
