Article 27 of our Belgic Confession states,
“This holy church is preserved by God against the fury of the whole world, although for a while it may look very small and as extinct in the eyes of man. Thus during the perilous reign of Ahab, the Lord kept for Himself seven thousand persons who had not bowed their knees to Baal.”
We found this to be true in South Cotabato.
Through two (2) Reformed Basics Seminars – in Surallah and Koronadal/Marbel – pastors and believers from 6 churches (5 of which are new church plants) received the Gospel of regeneration and justification by grace alone because of Jesus Christ alone, received through faith alone.
Please continue to pray for the pastors and believers in South Cotabato who are being reformed by the Holy Spirit and the word of God. Pray especially for the membership classes that, God willing, will be started in three (3) mission churches there.

May the Lord continue to reform churches in the Philippines through His Holy Spirit and word, for the salvation of the lost and the sanctification and preservation of believers in Christ.
Soli Deo gloria!
