Happy New Year Promisors,
Thank you for inviting and serving at The Christmas Spectacular! Over 9,000 people, many of whom visited our campuses for the first time, viewed the experience across all our campuses. Nearly 300 people prayed to receive Christ and many are already planning and preparing for their next step in baptism. I can’t think of a better way to begin 2018 than watching the waters of baptism rippling from new believers.
In this next year we will see a new and miraculous move of Heaven as Faith Promise takes one step closer to 10,000 Promisors by 2020. And although God has already delivered so many from the shackles of sin and captivity to circumstances, even more Promisors will be released and made ready for the ministry of helping real people with real problems find real love.
Our theme verses for 2018 come from Isaiah 43:18-19,
Do not call to mind the former things,
Or ponder things of the past.
“Behold, I will do something new,
Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert.’
Grace and greater purpose are awaiting you in 2018 through His new rivers and new roads. I challenge you to join every Promisor and take part in reading our 2018 Devotional New Rivers, New Roads together throughout January! Pick up a copy at your campus or grab a digital copy here.
I also challenge every Promisor to choose a Word for the year, make a Personal Growth Plan, or take part in the Bible Reading Plan. All of these are included in the devotional, so pick up your copy this weekend and get in on the new thing God is doing!
Also, beginning Monday, January 8th, I invite you to join us in a 21-Day Fast to pray for the new things God will do in Faith Promise and the lives of every Promisor this next year. If you’ve never fasted before, check out www.faithpromise.org/fasting for more information.
Finally, if you are a part of our Pellissippi Campus, don’t forget we will return to 5 weekend experiences beginning January 6th and 7th – two on Saturdays (5:00 and 6:30 p.m.) and three on Sundays (8:45, 10:00, and 11:30 a.m.)
So get in God’s new rivers of provision, get on His new roads of vision, and come see the new thing God has planned for you this year!
This will be your best year yet. Love you and see you this weekend!
