A Vision To "Rebuild" In The Year 2022


As we enter 2022, we are aware of having learned so much about God and His people in the past year. A crisis such as the recent pandemic has truly brought out the best and worst in many of the people around us. We have experienced great wisdom and courage and also surprising dysfunction all in the same setting.


It has been the best of times and the worst of times! In any case, we enter 2022 encouraged by the faithfulness of God and eager to rely on the power of God in the months ahead. As leaders, we will share our vision and our godly influence with those whom we serve. In the scripture passage selected for our 2022 theme, we see godly Zerubbabel working to REBUILD the House of God at Jerusalem.


The people of God in Judah had gone through a time of transition, dislocation and disruption, but by the context of our scripture, God has regathered them with a glorious destiny to experience a future glory which will surpass anything they have seen in the past.


Much of the church world is in a situation like this at present, including our church as well. To His people, the Lord sent the prophet Zechariah to reassure and encourage the chief builder, Zerubbabel.


God told him that the work would be magnifcently completed not by human might, not by human power, but by the Spirit of God! 

Go Into All The World & Preach The Gospel of Jesus Christ

 

the Great Commission appears in Mark's gospel indicates something of its importance. With just 16 chapters, Mark is the shortest of the gospels (at 28 chapters, Matthew is the longest). Some things in the other gospels do not appear in Mark. For instance, Mark says nothing about Jesus' birth or childhood. Thus, it seems that, for Mark at least, the Great Commission was more significant than the Christmas story.

 

To be sure, in the oldest Greek manuscript found to date of Mark's Gospel, chapter 16 ends at verse 8. Verses 9-20 are missing. As a result, Bible scholars are not sure who actually penned Mark 16:15.

 

Whether Mark wrote those words or whether someone else added them later does not change the fact that they are about something we know to be God's will. This is not the only place in Scripture that has the Great Commission. 

 

Biblical passages like "I am sending you" (John 20:2), "Be my witnesses to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8) and "Go make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19-10) all state that same command.

 

Clearly, we must not ignore the Great Commission; nor should we try to explain it away. It was obviously paramount in the biblical writers' minds. Dare we place less importance on it than they did?

 

How can believers today carry out the Great Commission? Well, it certainly includes the actual going to the ends of the earth. However, it may also mean financial support. It could be spending time in intercessory prayer in support of world evangelism.

 

It can mean preparing publicity to stir world evangelism interest and passion. It could be telling a missionary story once a month to a children's group at church. It could be mentoring a young person who feels called to missionary service. Make your calling and election sure. God bless you.

Our Presiding Prelate, Apostle Henry B. Alexander continues to teach the importance of UNIFYING OUR CHURCHES and making PRAYER OUR PRIMARY FOCUS. We truly appreciate your help and cooperation as we attempt to build a strong, unified prayer network.

 

We stand firm on the promises of God regarding prayer. Jesus said: "What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." (Mark 11:24) 

FELLOWSHIP PRAYER NETWORK

Objectives of our Fellowship Prayer Network:

 

  • We want every fellowship church to have a designated Prayer Leader or Leaders.

  • All prayer leaders will be contacted by me on a weekly basis through email. This email will outline prayer petitions that we will pray about as a fellowship as well as other things.

  • We want every fellowship church to have at least one thriving prayer chapter (prayer line) and focus on growing this prayer movement in your church.

  • We want to provide support and training to your intercessors if needed.

  • We want to pray together in our Prayer Revival in a spirit of unity.

  • God will manifest His glory and perform miracles, as we pray in faith.


PASTORS & LEADERS INSTITUTE

Our Pastors & Leaders Institute has been established to serve churches around the world in the following ways:

 

Practical Assistance – Because we recognize that no one organization is likely to meet every need, it is our policy that our churches may be aligned with other organizations in addition to our own. It is our commitment to assure that each pastor and church has access to the information and assistance needed to make their ministry vision become reality.

 

Fresh Ministry Style – Shield of Faith also seeks consistently to employ ministry styles that present the unchanging truths of the Word in an always relevant and up-to-date fashion that will be appealing and effective in its current environment. 

 

Crossing Denominational Barriers – A key objective is to skillfully reach across denominational boundaries in the pursuit of full restoration of God’s church to the New Testament pattern. However, we are in no wise so driven by the desire for impact that we are willing to compromise the essential truths of the Word of God.

 

Harmony and Unity of the Body – Membership in the Shield of Faith Fellowship is open to all pastors who feel to be part after having carefully examined our “Terms of Affiliation” Document.

MEN EMPOWERED NETWORK INTERNATIONAL

Men Empowered Network International, is a men's club support group designed to provide biblical counsel, life skills workshops, fun activities, outings and networking opportunities in the community for Men and young males. What does it truly mean to be a “Man Empowered” in our present world?

 

The word “Empowered” can be defined as: someone given the authority or power to do something. To equip or supply with an ability, to enable an individual or group. As Men of God we strive to live our lives according to biblical principles. 

 

We have been empowered by the Spirit of the Lord to be faithful, upright Men of integrity. We have power to access the throne of God  in  prayer,  we intercede for  others and make our request known unto God. We realize that the need of every man is to know Christ Jesus and to surrender his life to the wisdom of God’s Word. Accordingly, we  are not only  a  church-based men’s ministry, but also a community-based men’s empowerment organization that interacts with our broader community, the legal  system, city government  and other  agencies  to  impact our society in the Name of Jesus Christ.
