Darkness Can’t Conquer Light

During storms, some things are unavoidable. At one moment, we are inside the comforts of our homes, waiting for the storm to pass, then in the blink of an eye, we are covered in darkness — power outage.
It is amazing how quickly the darkness surrounds us in the absence of light. On the other hand, no matter how small the light is, as long as it stays lit, darkness cannot overcome it. John 1:15 says, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” 
It is not about the great darkness that surrounds us. It is about how long the light stays on. 
A simple encouragement for us today:
Overcoming is not about keeping the darkness away, it is about keeping the fire. 
Dear Lord,
Today, we ask for the courage not to fight the darkness but to keep ourselves on fire.
May our hearts be tender before You so that we may hear Your voice and walk on
Your ways. 
In Jesus’ Name,


Loving Our City with Christ

Love is the core of Christianity. It is the center of what we do, why we exist, and why we persist.
In this year’s anniversary, we focused on rallying the church to “Love our City with Christ”. This is a call and a challenge for all believers to get out of our comfort zones and to intentionally go to the different corners of the city to demonstrate the Love of Christ.

Church Vision

It is our vision “To love our city with Christ; one person, one family and one community at a time”. JRM-Vallejo is a family of believers whose goal is to explore the love of Christ and share it to the world. From this vision statement, we can get three important things.

The Love of Christ

Embracing our vision is not about lining up activity after activity in hopes of increasing our numbers. To embrace our vision means to get soaked in the Love of Christ. It means that we find time to stay rooted and grounded in love. To love our city with Christ is to expand our hearts to receive greater measures of His love.

The Power of One

Another aspect of our vision is the unlimited possibilities of ONE. Throughout history, we have seen God single out men and women to address a spiritual crisis and bring revival. In fact, our leaders are examples of how God molds a person for a specific task that involves a lot of people.

To love our city with Christ means we honor and respect one another, the stranger, our neighbor – everyone. Everyone counts! We start appreciating each person as one whom God has lavished His love on. We see through immaturities hold up the destiny God has for each person.

The Ripple Effect
The thing is, each one has so much potential the possibilities are endless. Who knows, the next person you might witness to is called to reach unreached people groups in the world.

This is the time for us, JRM-Vallejo! Let us look for opportunities to demonstrate the love of our Savior. Little acts of kindness count! Find time in your schedule and be intentional about it. Shalom!


Senior’s Life Group

It is such great joy to see the Senior’s Life group flourish through the efforts of our dear Ptra. Irenea Elec.

In one of their gatherings early this month of December, more than 30 residents gathered together to worship the Lord, listen to the preaching of His Word, and and enjoy fellowship with one another.

Special thanks to bro.Teddy Garcia, George Oyco for helping out on this event. A big thanks to ptra.Noreen Santos for sharing the Word of God that day.

Looking forward to a better and greater 2018 for our Seniors’ Life Group!  


Wednesday Prayer Meeting

Every Wednesday at 7:30pm, the church gathers for a prayer meeting. This is the time we spend as a congregation to discover God’s heart through prayer and to stand in the gap  for our families, communities, cities and nations.
It is such pure joy to hear the chorus of believers praying and interceding. Believers agreeing in prayer is a powerful act. It is the promise of Jesus, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”  Matthew 18:20
Our hope is for more people to realize the need for and the joy of prayer meetings. By joining believers in prayer, we not only lift up our voices in behalf of the people and institutions we pray for but we also strengthen our inner man through fellowship with the body of Christ. 
Here’s to more rooms filled with people praying! 


Contentment: The Secret to Gratitude

The book of Psalms is filled with admonitions to “come to the Lord with thanksgiving” and to “give thanks to the Lord, for He is good”. The bible never lacked instructions for us to express our gratitude to the Father.

However, there are times when gratitude is our first reaction to situations we are in. It’s difficult to be grateful when our expectations are not met.How then can we be thankful when life seems difficult?

KEYWORD: Contentment

Paul has one thing to say about this:
“In ALL SITUATIONS I have learned to be content.”

It did not come naturally for Paul to be content; He learned it. He has adapted the habit of not letting the outward circumstances affect His internal attitude. In other words, being content is a state of the heart.

David has this one thing to say:

“One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.” -Psalm 27:4-5

The status of our “inner man” predicts whether our initial reaction is to trust that God knows what He is doing or to complain that things are not going as planned. 

For this reason,our goal to know Jesus enough to trust Him in all the things that are happening in our lives. We know that the “Pilot” has enough knowledge to navigate through the skies and bring us safe and sound to our destination.

Knowing Jesus intimately makes us content. Why? Because He satisfies. He is the Living Water. Those who drink from Him will never thirst again.


Feed The Hunger


The most common and by far the worst hunger is hunger of the spirit. Most people say they are okay, that they have everything they want and need. Yet if they would listen to that still,small voice inside, they would know that its whispering “feed me”.

On Saturday, Feb 28 from 8 to 10 a.m., you are invited to come and join us and be prayed for. Come as you are, and fill the hollow inside with Gods love and grace.

Jesus Reigns Ministries, A Vallejo Community Church will join with other members of the community to offer the opportunity to wash your clothes, get a haircut, have some food and be prayed for. The event will be at the corner of Tennessee and Sutter in front of the Laundromat and Global Thrift.
