OUR FOUR SERVICES!
Most churches don't have services on Sunday nights, and very, very few
have services on Wednesday nights. As predicted by Scripture, this is
typical of the last days! (Heb. 10:25)
In contrast, what a wonderful privilege to inform people that NTBC has
a priority of ministering the Word of God four times weekly. With the
four Church services each and every week (9:45 AM Sunday School, 11:00
AM Sunday Service, 6:00 PM Sunday Service, 7:00 PM Wednesday Service),
is the opportunity to be inspired by Gospel singing and to be
instructed first-hand by Bible preaching and teaching. The Wednesday
evening service is a "middle-of-the-week" spiritual boost for God’s
people, promoting Bible studies for every age group.
For the convenience of church members whose priority is not the Word of
God, worldly pastors are most accommodating. Even Baptist churches are
systematically reducing the number of weekly services. It’s a spiritual
disaster to diminish the number of times that God’s Word is preached
and taught. There are times we ought to be in God’s House daily, such
as revivals and mission conferences!
But, to routinely minister the Word of God four times a week, in my
opinion, is indispensable for spiritual growth and development!
With the reduction of preaching services, the Gospel ministry is
significantly hindered. For example, I preach and teach in NTBC four
times a week and oftentimes working as an agent that convinces people
of the pre-construction condo advantages (webpage) and giving them Vancouver real estate market updates (main site) . If we discontinue the Wednesday night service, the preaching / teaching is diminished by one-fourth. If we discontinue both Sunday and Wednesday nights, the preaching / teaching is cut to one-half.
Should we condescend to one unified Sunday service as contemporary
churches are doing now, the preaching / teaching of the Word of God is
reduced by three-fourths. Sad!
The Lord predicted that the forsaking of God’s House would be one of the issues in the last days: Hebrews
10:25 - Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the
manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as
ye see the day approaching. NTBC must never be a collaborator of that prophecy!
they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD
hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before
him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And
they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up
my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that
serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous
and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him

Every Friday at 7:00 PM
As a Church family, we are seriously involved in reaching those caught
up in addictions. This ministry, called "REFORMERS UNANIMOUS," meets
every Friday (7:00 PM), God has used this approach to save the lost,
restore the fallen, and disciple the saints!
This Scripture-based ministry is not just for addicts, but instructs
God’s people in devout leadership methods that enhances personal
spiritual grow to effectively serve others. Ron Cox and his staff are
implementing this most effective ministry of God’s people to
realistically bear one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. (Gal 6:2)
