"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    India Gospel Outreach (Update)

    Before I share an update, I would strongly encourage you to watch the following video:

    The first of my four ministry trips to India took place in 1987. Though each of the trips only lasted around 3 weeks, God used those seasons of ministry to plant a very deep love in my heart for the precious people of India. There are tears in my eyes as I recall the faces of young boys and girls as well as many adults making a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus for the first time. Over the years I have been privileged to see thousands do this exact thing.

    I am very aware that my part in it all was simply the final link in a long chain of people - those who had prayed for, given towards and sacrificed in ways only heaven will reveal, so that the people of Kerala, India might know salvation through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Now, all these years later, a new opportunity is before us. One missionary can do only so much and go to only so many places by himself; but a tract can go to places a missionary would never get to on his own. A tract is like a trained armed soldier, standing on guard, always ready to be used in the hand of God.

    One testimony I heard recently was from a gentleman who kept a tract in his wallet for 3 years, "almost" throwing it away many different times, only to keep it, thinking he might read it "one day" when he had time... Then finally, alone in a hotel room, while fumbling through his wallet, he came across the tract and finally decided to read it. As he did so, he understood the gospel, was immediately convicted of his sin, and right there on the spot, the Holy Spirit brought the miracle of conversion as he trusted in Christ to save him.

    You may remember we provided 10,000 copies of the Gospel tract I wrote "The Thief on the Cross" in the Malayalam language which were handed out to people in the state of Kerala at Easter time. I have learnt through my friend Pastor Pappy Daniel, that the response and feedback to this very clear gospel presentation has been extremely encouraging. So much so that we made a tentative inquiry to find out how much it would cost for 100,000 tracts to be printed.

    Whereas the cost for 10,000 tracts was approximately $400 USA Dollars, the cost for 100,000 tracts will be $2,600.00. This is the full cost, which includes paper, printing, shipping and distribution handling costs. As you can see, there is a substantial savings (per tract) when there is a larger quantity being printed.

    Perhaps this Gospel outreach is something you or your church might like to get behind and support. If so, just write to me at this contact address and I will give you further details.

    Goal: $2,600.00

    Amount received (as of 8/5/11): $330.00

    Thank you D.B. and T.G. for your sacrificial gifts for this project. May many others be inspired to do the same.
