We are very serious about studying what the Bible truely says. We dont want man's opinions, thoughts, ideas, traditions or strategies. We want to know the very thoughts, desires and will of God. The only way to do that is to study the Bible and to understand and know what He actually thinks and says. The Bible has often been misrepresented by churches that exalt their own words as more important than God's Word. The Bible's wonderful message of freedom and reality has often been obscured by religion, hypocricy and compromise. Its truth has been hidden under a pile of man-made lies and tadition.
In this new Sunday-morning series we take a good close look at what the church is, what a member of a church is, how the local church operates, the ministries that operate within the church, and the many false practices and beliefs that float around the churches in Limerick as well as the churches of every other nation. It has become common for many to say, 'You do not need to go to church to be saved', or, 'I have church at home.' Such people certainly do not know or understand the teaching of the Bible concerning the church. We will clear these false teachings out of the way and present a beautiful picture of the church (Ekklesia) in these messages. Please join us to learn what Christ and the apostles taught.
Wednesday Night Bible Study
JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH
This truth of Justification by Faith is certainly one of the most vital truths of the Bible. It is taught in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. It is the foundation and source of a walk with God. It is the only way to be in a right relationship with God. In this series we will take this truth apart and begin to explain it and reveal it from the Word by the help of the Holy Spirit. This truth brings a sinner to salvation and acceptance in Christ as well as reviving the heart of all genuine Christians.
SPECIAL MEETINGS Thursday 26th and Friday 27th of October
Mark and Rosna Anderson, from Armagh, will be with us for two special nights of meetings. Mark has authored two books: one on baptism in water and another on the gifts of the Spirit. Over the past few years he has had opportunities to teach on Christian television and to exhort Christians to seek for the supernatural gifts of the Spirit. He travels annually to Malaysia with his wife Rosnah who is originally from there. Rosna has a wonderful gift in music and worship and Mark has a clear, sound gift in opening up the teaching of the Bible. They are great friends of this church (LCC) and were the first guest speakers after we first opened the church. Come join us and be blessed by two nights of ministry and fellowship in seeking for God to work in your heart in answer to prayer.

Mission Trips: October & December 2016
Keith will be the guest speaker for local churches, leaders, and believers of Wittenberg, in Germany in November. These meetings titled 'Christ Alone' will initiate a month of celebrating the truths of the Five Solos of the Reformation and to begin a year of celebrating the work of God and truth of God that initiated the European Reformation, when the Catholic priest, Martin Luther, was born-again after being led to faith in Christ alone. This powerfully impacted Europe spiritually and politically leading to thousands of priests getting born-again, and hundreds of thousands of Catholics saved, and then leading to 500 years of spiritual revivals around the world.
Keith will be the guest speaker at two leaders conventions in Pretoria, South Africa, and in Nairobi, Kenya, in December. Brother Stephen Cartwright, who is one of the Missionaries we support in prayer at LCC is Director of Light in the World Ministries (LWM). Each year he does a remarkable work running short term Bible schools (SOC) all over Africa. He previously oversaw the work in India, Africa, Indonesia and elsewhere. Now he continues to effectually run a great many schools (SOC) across many nations of Africa each year where pastors / leaders are trained and called back to the reality of Christ and the truth of the Scriptures.
By God's grace each week we come to the Bible with open hearts to let the Lord speak to us in a real way. If you have a desire for truth, if you want to learn about the reality of a real walk with God, if you have a sincere desire to be changed then please join us at our Bible study. You will be most welcome. If you do not own a Bible we will make sure you receive one.
Each year the Bible out-sells every other book in the world. It is the worlds best-seller but more importantly it is God's Word to man. It is a unique book. More Bibles have been produced than any other book in history. It is estimated that between 2.5 billion and 6 billion Bibles have been sold. The second bestseller of all time is Mao Chong’s Chinese Little Red Book, which has sold about 900 million copies.
Daniel Radosh wrote in The New Yorker: “The familiar observation that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time obscures a more startling fact: the Bible is the best-selling book of the year, every year.” He also stated that ‘The year that Harry Potter hit its highest sales, twice as many Bibles were sold in the same year. It has been translated into over 2200 languages which covers about 90% of the world’s population. There are almost 4000 other languages still to be reached with 1300 of them in a present process of translation. At this rate all languages could potentially be reached by the year 2023.
