God knows His Plan for Us

Slide text goes here...

“[God’s Final Word: His Son] In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.”

Welcome to the Saint Augustine Missionary Baptist Church website.  Greeting in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that it will serve as a tool to share the great news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You are also welcome to come worship and praise the Living God with SAMBC Church family of believers. The Christian life involves more than just believing - it also includes belonging. We grow in Christ by being in relationship and fellowship with other Christians as well as with God.

Romans 12:10 says, "Be devoted to one another in brotherly love."  As a result, our mission is to ensure that we show unconditional love to one another so that we can grow as believers in Jesus Christ.


A Relationship With God

God created humanity for relationships: relationships with each other, with nature, and with God. However, human sin separated us from God, turning what should have been a loving relationship into one filled with hate and disobedience. (Romans 5:10)

God's Attributes as a Window

Knowing who God is, his character and his nature, can be discovered through learning about his attributes.  The attributes of God provide us with a window through which we can contemplate who God is.

What are Spiritual Disciplines?

Understanding the power of sin over us will help us grasp the meaning and necessity for spiritual disciplines.

The Bible explains sin with several metaphors. Sin: Captures (Proverbs 5:22; Hebrews 12:1) Enslaves (Genesis 4:7; John 8:34; Romans 7:14, 23; Galatians 3:22)

Fasting -- Biblical Basis and Examples

The nation Israel fasted asking God's forgiving -- (Judges 20:26; 1 Samuel 7:6; Jeremiah 36:9; Ezra 8:21-23)

The city of Nineveh fasted asking God's forgiveness - (Jonah 3:5-10)

Moses fasted when he received God's commandments - (Exodus 34:28)
