Assyrian Youth Harvest – the Congregation

  • Written by:

Dear friend,
Sometime within the next year or two, through divine providence, the “Assyrian Youth Harvest” will establish its first congregation in Chatsworth, Los Angeles, California; the LORD willing.

Our LORD Jesus has said, “I will build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Mat 16:18

*

Revival
We intend to facilitate an environment for all Assyrian youth, and their friends and others, to become “born-again believers”, and to get filled and baptized with the Holy Spirit and to be filled with joy and peace, and to live holy and quality and abundant life, and to become on-fire and zealous for our LORD Jesus and to continuously praise and worship Him in their lives.

And for the lukewarm believers, we want to see their spiritual lives and walk with the LORD revived.

Joe 2:25 . . . “And I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten.”

We will teach them

We will teach them only the Word of God, and that they can be free from bondage to sin and free from “dead traditions” of men.

We will teach them to seek the LORD first and early in their lives, and to expect miracles from Him: miracles of salvation and healing and restoration, and blessings from Him.

We will teach them that the LORD is our dearly beloved Father who loves us beyond measure.

We will teach them that a person’s life does not consist in the abundance of possessions, and that the the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Luk 12:15 , Rom 14:17

The LORD willing, we are looking at hundreds and thousands of individuals to be saved and revived weekly and monthly – locally, and globally through our web-site services.

*

The environment

The congregation will be a dynamic, exciting, and uplifting non-denominational Christian fellowship.

We will teach and communicate the Word of God to them in the language which they understand – English.

The congregation and the worship will look like “Hillsong” church in Sydney:

And like Kari Jobe and Gateway worship:

And songs like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbSMfL5LuSo&NR=1 [You are for me. / Kari Jobe]

And this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXCoHxX1OC8&feature=related [Hosanna]

And this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxifqtpW4H4 [Everlasting God]

Speakers and worship bands

We will present various speakers and teachers, and various contemporary worship bands and artists, such as Chris Tomlin, the Katinas, Hillsong from Sidney, Michael W. Smith, Gateway, Kari Jobe; and worship bands from various Calvary Chapel congregations, from Harvest Christian Fellowship, and other local congregations.

Worship will be around 45 minutes, followed by a 30 minute teaching, followed by an altar call.

*

Service Times

The LORD-willing, the services will be on Saturday and Tuesday evenings.

*

Style

The style will be casual. The LORD looks at the heart.

*

For Glory and Beauty
Please pray and ask the LORD to bless this congregation, since all of this will be for His glory and for beauty. Exd 28:40

*

The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace. Num 6:24 – Num 6:26
