CELEBRATING 58 YEARS!

Dr. J. C. Joiner

March 26, 2017

58th ANNIVERSARY SUNDAY

NEW TESTAMENT BAPTIST CHURCH

Our Lord declared: “… upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matt 16:18)

In 1959 Pastor and Nita Joiner came out of Bible College by faith to Tucson, believing it to be God’s perfect will for them to plant a local Baptist Church. An elementary school was leased for three years until the purchase of the present five-acre site on Craycroft Road.

The Church’s outreach in the “Old Pueblo” for almost sixty years has included a Christian school, all-Bible Sunday School for all ages, bus/van ministry, youth ministries, summer camps, vacation Bible schools, AWANA program for children, ladies’ ministry, deaf ministry, senior citizen’s luncheon, care-centers ministry, Reformers Unanimous (addictions program).

In January, the Church completed its 52nd Annual Missions Conference. Over the years nearly thirty-percent of the Church’s total income has gone to Missionaries, mission projects / planting local churches, evangelists, Baptist Colleges, planting over 100 Baptist Churches across America, fellowship/seminar meetings, etc. Over 350 members felt called out of our Church to attend Bible Colleges in preparation for God’s service as preachers, missionaries, school teachers, Church staff, youth leaders, and Church leaders (faithful laymen and laywomen).

    Let’s unite together throughout this special day Praising and Honoring our wonderful God who has allowed us on this sacred site the privileged to graciously proclaim the Gospel in Tucson, in Arizona, across America, and around the world (Matt 28:18-20).

ALERT:  Traffic & Access Complications

Glenn Street was “messed up” for a month and, now again, probably for another month. Please access our Church at the Craycroft Road & San Francisco Street entrances. Be extremely cautious of any “little ones” in the parking lots.

58th ANNIVERSARY OF THE NEW TESTAMENT BAPTIST CHURCH

Next Sunday … March 26

PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW

At our inception, we rented an elementary school for three years until the purchase of this five-acre site on Craycroft Road. The Church’s outreach for almost sixty years in Tucson has included a Christian school, all-Bible Sunday School for all ages, bus/van ministry, youth ministry, summer camps, vacation Bible schools, AWANA program for children, ladies ministry, deaf ministry, senior citizens luncheon, care-centers ministry, Reformers Unanimous (addictions program).

In January, the Church completed its 52nd Annual Missions Conference. Over the years almost a third of the Church’s total income has gone to missionaries, mission projects, evangelists, Baptist Colleges, planting over 100 Baptist Churches across our nation, and fellowship/seminar meetings. Over 350 members have been called out of New Testament Baptist Church to attend Bible Colleges in preparation for God’s service as preachers, missionaries, school teachers, Church staff, youth leaders, and Church leaders (faithful laymen and laywomen).

    Let’s unite next Sunday in Praise and Honor to our wonderful God who has allowed us on this sacred site the privilege to graciously proclaim the Gospel in Tucson, in Arizona, across America, and around the world (Matt 28:18-20).

2017 Spring Revival & Outreach

Revival Vows:

Genuine Revival Includes What Happens After the Services!

Our problematic nation is much like troubled Israel during the ministry of Christ’s predecessor. Referring to John the Baptist, Scripture declares “… he came, preaching …” (Luke 3:3) Likewise our Evangelist Mike Pelletier “came preaching” for us! … and to us!  At this writing six made professions of faith in Christ. All who had the right attitude and took the time and effort to hear God’s man, were stirred by Spirit-filled Bible messages that enlightened us to understand our God’s holy ways and that enabled us to gain a deeper appreciation of His love and mercy and grace to sinners like us.

Surely being challenged by the application of truth, each of us making heartfelt vows and genuine promises to the Saviour, are now obligated by our word to follow through with each vow and commitment. After the moving event of last week, you are obligated to be “… doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves” (James 1:22). The Apostle Paul, by inspiration, said it this way: “Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have” (2 Cor 8:11).

Communion of the Holy Spirit

2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

Many Christians today are struggling to live the Christian life without the communion of the Holy Spirit. We must be filled with the Word of God, but we will not obey what we read and study without the insight and power that the Holy Spirit gives us. Our natural man has a hostility to the Scriptures. When we are filled with the Holy Spirit, He gives us a love for the Scriptures.

1 Thessalonians 5:19 Quench not the Spirit.

Galatians 5:16, 18 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh… But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

“These verses imply that when you follow the leadership of the Spirit, He empowers you to overcome the law of sin….For some “controlled carnality” is preferred to really yielding to the leadership of the Spirit.” –  John R. Van Gelderen

 

RU Meets Fridays at 7 PM / Sundays at 9:30 AM – Everyone is welcome.

We especially need a van driver for Friday nights. We also need a Kidz club teacher.

FOOD BANK

After each service, we make available to families in need of a bag of non-perishable groceries (limited to one bag per month). To help us keep our pantry stocked we welcome you to bring in non-perishable items such as canned goods (soups, chili, sauces, meats, vegetables, etc.), boxes of cereal, pasta, rice, beans, etc. Please bring your items to the front foyer and let an usher know. Richard and Judy Sabin oversee this ministry.

Promise for Revival is Explicit / Unchanging

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves,

and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;

then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin,

and will heal their land.   (2 Chr. 7:14)

God said, “If  My  people…” YOU are a vital entity in that word, “people,” and if there is to be genuine, Heaven-sent revival, YOU as a significant member of this local church ministry must take part.  Revival or “no-Revival” in this total ministry depends on YOU. Decide personally, right now that we will have a life-transforming-meeting! God will be pleased when every person in this Church family makes a max-effort for REVIVAL!

Would YOU pause right now, at this very moment, and make a verbal commitment to YOURSELF and to your God to be personally involved in the hopes and aspirations of this Church?

How YOU make such a commitment a reality!

  • Ask God to bring Revival to you personally.
  • Make a “sweetheart” prayer list of those you know who are unsaved or unchurch.
  • Pray every day for each, asking God to remove any obstacle in their path to spiritual fulfillment.
  • Plan to be in every service during the meetings starting with the first service, 9:30 AM, March 12.
  • Bring one or more of those you’ve prayed for to each service.
  • “Attempt great things for God; expect great things from God.”

KIDS’  “REVIVAL

~ Each night for children, age 4 through the 3rd grade ~

There will be special Bible stories, Crafts, and Fun “stuff.”

The “spiritual” education of your children must have a higher priority

than “secular” education and sports activities

Don’t allow anything to hinder REVIVAL for you and yours!

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for February 19

Dr. J. C. Joiner

February 19, 2017

           2 0 1 7 THEME … and having done all, to STAND. (Eph. 6:13)

…. stand fast in the faith, …. (1 Cor. 16:13)

President’s Day / Christian Duty

Tomorrow, February 20, is set aside to honor those that have served in the highest political office of our nation.

As Christians obeying Romans 13:1-7, we are to respect those that are duly elected to serve in civil government. The oath of office for President of the United States is found in the US Constitution, Article II, Section 1, and reads: “Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation: ‘I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States’.”

Let us as the family of God at New Testament Baptist Church commit ourselves daily to bring the name “Donald John Trump” before our Lord, praying that He will guide the 45th President to not only obey his oath of office, but to govern us by the will of God and in accordance with the Word of God. Also, in a hostile environment fomented by the terrible bitterness and hatred manifested by the liberal, secular humanists, we must earnestly pray for our President’s safety and well-being!

 

CHRISTIAN MATURITY – 2017

Sundays at 6:00 PM

Wednesdays at 7:00 PM

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby (1 Peter 2:2).  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe (Heb. 5:12,13).

 

It is scriptural to be a “babe” in Christ early on in your Christian experience. However, your heavenly Father commands you to grow up into maturity.  You and your family ought to be here tonight at six and this Wednesday night at seven to be taught spiritual development unto maturity.  God never intended for you to remain a “milk-sucking-baby-Christian” the rest of your life!

 

Our 2017 Faith Promise Commitment

$174,114.23

Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have (2 Cor. 8:11).

 

 

Don’t Forget this weeks’ special activities:

  • Ladies Fellowship and Bible Study this Thursday at 9:30 AM
  • Men’s Prayer Breakfast this Saturday, February 25 at 7:00 AM

 

MEN’S ADVANCE – MARCH 9-11 – Ft. Thomas, AZ

REVIVAL SERVICES – MARCH 12-17

We look forward to the Pelletiers and Murrays being with us in March. Plan on attending all the services. There will be three services on Sunday and a service each evening Monday through Friday.

GOD’S LOVE DEMONSTRATED

Dr. J. C. Joiner

February 12, 2017

 2 0 1 7 THEME … and having done all, to STAND. (Eph. 6:13)

…. stand fast in the faith, …. (1 Cor. 16:13)

GOD’S LOVE DEMONSTRATED

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10

God demonstrated His love to us by sending Jesus Christ to be the propitiation for our sins. Only Christianity has the answer for the problem of sin. God initiates the solution to the sin problem by sending His son into the world to be the propitiation for our sins. It is important that we understand what propitiation means for us to better understand God’s love.

Propitiation means satisfaction; covering; the fulfillment of a demand. It refers to God’s estimation of Christ’s sacrifice. God is fully satisfied by what Jesus Christ did on the Cross. The penalty for His broken law and man’s sin has been fully satisfied (Rom. 3:24-25; 1 John 2:2; Heb. 2:17; Isa. 5:11). The Greek word translated “propitiation” (Rom. 3:25) is also translated “mercy seat” in Heb. 9:5. The mercy seat perfectly covered the law which was contained in the Ark (Ex. 25:17,21). This symbolizes propitiation-Christ covering the demands of God’s law. That it is the blood of Christ which put away our sins was depicted on the Day of Atonement when blood was sprinkled on the mercy seat by the high priest (Lev. 16:11-17). “Propitiation is for God, and for Him alone, although it vitally concerns us. It is the blessed answer of Jesus meeting, in death and before God, the holy and righteous claims of Jehovah’s throne. God has been infinitely glorified, and His moral government gloriously vindicated in the blood-shedding of Jesus” – Way of Life Encyclopedia

Brethren, you have to turn the world-wide generality into a personal possession. You have to say, ‘He loved me, and gave Himself for me.’ It is of no use to believe in a universal Saviour; do you trust in your particular Saviour? It is of no use to have the most orthodox and clear conceptions of the relation between the Cross of Christ and the revelation to men of the love of God; have you made that revelation the means of bringing into your own personal life the conviction that Jesus Christ is your Saviour, the propitiation for your sins, the Giver to you of life eternal? It is faith that does that. – MacLaren
