Happy New Year!
We want to wish you and yours a Happy New Year! May the Spirit of God continue his work in you to lead you into what God has in store for your life in 2007.
Just as we are leaving behind this past year and stepping into a new one, so God is always moving us into our next step in life, our next level of relationship with him, our next task, or even our next moment of waiting for his direction.
Whatever the stage in which you find yourself today, God has not left you stranded. He has your next step already laid out, and is ready and waiting to take you by the hand and lead you into your tomorrow.
Choose your connection speed above and join us for worship and a time in the Word, as we celebrate the coming of the new year, and talk about a strengthening and clarifying of our vision for 2007.

The Ministry of Reconciliation
Today, instead of making a New Year's resolution, we talk about strengthening, or perhaps shifting, our focus onto Jesus' vision and direction for us, both as an International body of believers and as the global Body of Christ.
We believe 2007 will be a year of strong focus on winning souls. Scripture tells us the Kingdom of God is advancing violently, and the violent take it by force. This is a spiritual violence, as we set our faces like flint to spiritual warfare, interceeding in prayer for the lost, and then going out and spreading the Gospel in the virtual world God has called us to reach.
And this is not something we will do as a side activity, rather this is the commission Jesus has given us — to go everywhere and make disciples. We could not be more serious about reaching the lost in the virtual world for Jesus, and 2007 will be a year of intense witness for Jesus!
Currently there are more than 2,278,767 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 30,000 to 100,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
Visit here to become a financial partner or give a one-time gift today. And remember, whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto Jesus.
Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Strength and Protection – LQimani writes, "Dear Lord, I pray for each member of this ministry--for the leadership who will come under the additional attacks of the enemy for their obedience to God; for the worship team who needs to have the strength to stand before Your throne to lead the rest of the congregation prior to our hearing Your Word; for the members of the congregation who have asked
for Your touch--please continue to touch Ricardo as he is well on the way to recovery through Your interventions, please touch Fleur's friend Don and his wife as they will come to lean on Your Everlasting Arms, please touch Bamos's wife, please give Darren the Peace that surpasses all understanding, please touch each broken heart, confused mind, pain-filled body, and all of us who feel weak and worn. In Jesus' mighty Name I ask and pray, amen."
Friend in Trouble – Michael writes, "Pray for a friend who is being kicked out of his apartment. Pray he gets a job, and that he gets peace of mind to sleep at night."
Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!
Visit our prayer center to post requests or pray for those who daily request prayer. If you wish to be a prayer partner and have the requests e-mailed to you, contact us.
