"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:"
(Jeremiah 31:31 KJV)
The New Testament, which is often called the New Covenant, is a collection of Christian writings written in the Greek language spoken during the first century in and around the "civilized" world. It was written at different times in different places by 7 or 8 different writers who were early disciples of Jesus Christ or by Paul. The New Testament completes the Old Testament to become Our Awesome God's Holy Bible.
This portion of the Holy Bible consists of 27 books written before 100 AD and can be categorized by: 1) four writings of the life, teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, called "gospels," 2) a narrative of the Apostles' ministries in the early church, called the "Acts of the Apostles", and written by the same writer as the Gospel of Luke, 3) twenty-one letters, often called "epistles" written by 5, or possibly 6, authors, and containing Christian doctrine, counsel, instruction, and conflict resolution, and 4) an Apocalypse, the Book of Revelation, which is a book of prophecy containing some instructions addressed to seven local churches of Asia Minor, but mostly with prophecies about the end times. These are the New Covenant written about in Jeremiah 31:31.
We are overwhelmed and so grateful for this New Covenant that Our Awesome God made with mankind by sending Jesus Christ to save us from our sins. The New Testament teaches that Jesus Christ died for you and took your sins upon Himself and arose the third day and is now sitting by God, interceding for you when you sin. So we now have a choice of salvation through accepting Jesus Christ as our Savior and following Him to heaven, or rejecting Him and going to hell - for eternity.
We at LWBC teach and preach from God's Holy Bible and believe that Jesus Christ brought us the New Covenant when He fulfilled the prophecies and all of the sacrificial requirements of the Mosaic Law written in the Old Testament (or Old Covenant). We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Our church starts with small groups on Sunday at 9:30 AM and a Worship Service at 10:30 AM. On Sunday evening at 6:00 PM, a Bible Study meets for an hour along with a program for children called AWANA which goes until 7:30 PM. We have a Prayer Meeting and Bible Study that meets at 7:00 PM on Wednesday.
