Poland Summer Camp

Coming together for camp is always a wonderful time to rejoice and the happiness God gives us was this year on display in Poland. The European camp was this year held at the seaside town of Ustka next to the Baltic Sea, and was an amazing week of fellowship, great talks and seeing the evidence of God working in people’s lives today. The theme of the camp was Philippians 4.4: “Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, rejoice”. And there was plenty to rejoice about! We had talks in German, Italian, Polish......

Cat Bouwhuis

I have lived a very blessed life. Blessed doesn’t always mean everything goes your way and blessed doesn’t mean you don’t get sad. To me, blessed is knowing. It is a contentment in a knowledge of the truth.  I have spirit filled parents, and was brought up attending church every Sunday. Around the age of 9 or 10 I was aware that a lot of my friends were seeking for, or being filled with the Holy Spirit. I didn’t want to be left out so started attending meetings for the children who......

Back to Sissano Lagoon

Eighteen years ago, a tidal wave destroyed Sissano Lagoon PNG and that memory has never faded for the people who call the lagoon their home.  But in that time, the jungle has regrown and there is little evidence of the destruction caused by the gigantic waves that hit the region in July 1998. Pastors John Andrews and Darcy Ryan spent 3 days living in the jungle with the saints, re-walking the jungle tracks and boating around the lagoon and rivers that service the area. Our visit started in Wewak with a 5-hour......

salvation - open the door to a new life in God

Salvation & God’s Plan for all mankind We believe the directive to repent, be baptised, and receive the Holy Spirit Peter the Apostle told the crowd clearly what must be done for Salvation. Peter specified the response they should have to their newly-found knowledge that Jesus had died for them and was risen from the dead. Repent and be baptised… receive the gift of the Holy Spirit He told them to “…repent, and be baptised every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you......

Housemeeting Baptisms

The South-West Housemeeting in Sydney had a great meeting last night with two baptisms. The meeting was convened at the house of a lady who wanted to be baptised as she had previously received the Holy Spirit at one of our Sunday meetings. So we got her bathtub full of warm water (although the HUGE fish tank filled with carp in the lounge room would have done the job!). First we had the normal meeting of singing, testimonies, the talk from the word of God and the Spiritual Gifts… then, to our delight,......

Christmas Camp - Nuku Zone - Angra Centre PNG

We thank our Lord for His great blessings in this Christmas Camp held from 23 to 26 December 2014. We enjoyed the talks and many testimonies from the Spirit-filled people from within the zones there (Nuku, Wulukum, Lumi, Aitape, Drekikier, Maprik, Vanimo and Lae). In the camp were about 1,226 people, and in the first day we have had 40 baptisms so far. We believe we will have more baptisms in the second and third days of the camp. We extend our Christmas greetings to all the saints in RCI. May God bless......

Two thousand and fourteen marks the hottest Melbourne rally yet. The weather outside was warm, but the ministry inside the Box this year was on fire, stoking us all up to get our zeal burning and get out there to tell people about our hope. God didn’t let us wander around the theme-less wilderness for long, a clear message soon emerged from our able bodied pastoral community, entreating us to love God and love our neighbours by illuminating our testimony, our faith in the Lord and telling people they can be more......

Well this was a first for me but in this age of technology and with a need to be met it was the only option….and it worked out fine. One of our Sydney saints has been in touch with people over a number of years in Egypt. Several have received the Holy Spirit from within his circle of family and friends and others have also enquired further using the internet as the vehicle for communication. One of the men had received the Holy Spirit but needed to be baptised. He is also......

The last few days have been hectic, moving from one assembly to another. Bright singing and amazing items from various groups from each assembly. Malawi is in its dry season and it has been hot and dusty, with one exception, and you will see that by the photo below. There were another 10 baptisms on Saturday and 12 today (Sunday). A total of 39 people have been baptised and received the Holy Spirit....
