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!

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!
