NCCP holds GenCon, PBS participates

The National Council of Churches in the Philippines (NCCP) held its 24th General Convention on November 23-27, 2015 at the UMC Mission Camp in Tagaytay City with the theme “Launching out into the Deep for Peace and Justice”.
PBS President Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno (retired), and UMC chairman of administrative council, shared his liturgical message during the event. “Our task as fishers of men needs more dynamism. Christians can’t confine themselves in the cathedrals and churches. We need to go out into the streets,” Chief Justice Puno said.
PBS General Secretary Nora G. Lucero also gave her rendition of the song “My Tribute” (To God be Glory) during the Oikoumene night of the convention. Other PBS participations were putting up the Roving Bible Museum (RBM), where delegates can view, and a Bible Display where they can avail of Scripture materials.

The said convention of NCCP leaders, members, and partners elected a new set of officers for the next four years. Serving as the Chief Executive Officer of the NCCP, Rev.

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
