Anniversary Congratulations & Greetings (Part 1)

Dear Pastor Ki, Elder Michael and all Hopefuls,

Congratulations on Hope B-P Church’s 32nd Anniversary. May the Lord’s richest blessings be upon your Thanksgiving Service on Sunday. 

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Cor 15:58).

With love in Christ and our prayers,

Rev Edward and Mrs Lehia Paauwe

Founding Pastor of Hope BPC

We celebrate together with the HBPC on your 32nd Anniversary. We wish we could attend but we're too busy with work. Our message for HBPC is that you continue to be the relevant change agent in the society whose moral fibre is rapidly getting compromised. Do not quench the fire placed in you by the Lord (Lev. 6:13). God bless HBPC

Rev Alfred & Sis Ruth Ngoma (Wagga)

We praise God for the faithful and fervent ministry of Hope BP Church all these 32 years. The Session and members of Ebenezer BP Church rejoice with you on this blessed commemoration of your 32nd Anniversary. Christ the Head of the church incepted this work for His own glory in 1986. We thank God for your commitment to the preaching and propagation of the pure gospel and the whole counsel of God in these perilous and end times. The Lord has also blessed you with an excellent place of worship. “Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth” (Ps. 105:5).  The Lord has indeed “crownest the year with His goodness; and His paths drop fatness.” (Psalm 65:11) We pray that the Lord will bless the Pastor & Elders, Church session and members as they strive to build His kingdom in Hope BPC. May the Lord keep you strong and steadfast as you serve Him and glorify Him in the years ahead, and until our Lord Jesus Christ returns!

Dear Hopefuls,

I rejoice with you at your 32nd anniversary. 

Remember his grace upon you - how he brought you out of Satan’s kingdom into God’s, out of darkness into light, and out of bondage into liberty. Use that liberty to serve Christ and each other. 

Remember also to hope in Christ. He has promised that the church will grow - souls will be saved and saints will mature. Satan’s kingdom will shrink. 

And he does that by way of paradox. He being king, became sacrifice; a master became servant; God becoming man. And he teaches us the way of paradox too. That we may die to self that we may live; serve to be great; lose self to gain Christ.

Yours humbly,

Pastor David Weng

Hallelujah! Praise and congratulations on the celebration of your 32nd Thanksgiving Anniversary  on this Lord's Day. Indeed we serve an awesome and amazing God who has added to the Hope church family all these years. May the Lord continue to bless Hope church as you all serve Him, strengthen the saints and share the good news with those who have yet to hear the message of everlasting salvation.

Dear Hopefuls,

Praise God and congratulations on the celebration of your church 32nd Anniversary. 

My wife & I were truly blessed when God gave us the opportunity to minister in the recent Easter Camp. 

Praise God for the dedication of Rev & Mrs Ki, along with the elders, deacons, other leaders, pioneer members and those whom God has added to your church family over the years.

May you continue to serve the Lord, strengthen the saints & share the gospel with sinners.

We pray for God's grace, wisdom & blessings on your church family as you celebrate God's goodness & faithfulness to you. Happy 32nd Anniversary!

Yours in Christ,

Rev & Mrs Gabriel Gan

Dear Hope Church,

Greetings in Christ’s name from Singapore. 

“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you...”

I first heard of you when I was a Bible College student in the 1980s. It was only recently that I have the opportunity to meet all of you personally. What I saw in you deeply encouraged me. I found a working church led by your loving Pastor and a team of dedicated Church Officers. I found a vibrant church life where people are eager to serve one another. I saw a church hungry and thirsty for the Word of God. You are a growing and united congregation.

As you commemorate 32 years of gospel ministry, may God prosper your labour of love and keep you faithful to the Word of God and the testimony of Christ. May you strive to be a picture of heaven on earth as a congregation of Christians. May our Lord Jesus Christ be praised in and through you.

Wishing you and your Church Officers a very Blessed and Meaningful 32nd Anniversary!

Rev. Willy Ng

Criswell Tabernacle
