By Mike Maldonado – Colorado Springs, Colorado … As we live in a socially distance world, God’s Word is still reaching those who hunger for knowledge.
When the pandemic hit many pastors had a choice to make concerning Bible studies. How can you do Bible studies when you can’t meet together? One would expect with the lack of normal baptismal studies our churches would see a sharp decrease in new believers.
The Colorado Springs Central church has experienced the opposite. In the span of two Sabbaths at the end of May and the beginning July, Central baptized and welcomed seven new members to the family of believers.
“Praise God that during the pandemic and lockdown of the church the gospel was still being preached, Bible studies were still being given, and hearts were convicted to follow Jesus,” Mike Maldonado, pastor of Colorado Springs Central stated.
The news spread on Facebook which caused great joy to be shared. “People are hungry for the word of God,” one individual commented. “[This is] wonderful news to hear. Praise God,” stated another.
Even through changeling times we can be assured the gospel is still going forth in the Rocky Mountain Conference.
