Scattering seed on the ground
Zion Baptist Church, Ebbw Vale
This church family in South Wales has faithfully been spreading the word and is encouraged that God is at work through them
In the four years since Pastor Udo Mueller has been minister, Zion Baptist Church has had 21 baptisms
We are a very friendly and welcoming church, we strive to make the name of Jesus known to our community, to engage with people at their level and love people for what/who they are - people created in the image of God. We proclaim a message that transforms peoples lives, because that is the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are many things that happen in our normal week, Bible Studies, Line Dancing, Drop-in Evening (Thru the Roof), Prayer Meetings, Celebrate Recovery, Craft Group, and our Sunday Services, and in everything we hope to be inclusive to anyone and to proclaim an exclusive message of salvation by faith.
During these almost four years that God had placed us in Zion, through the grace of God and for his glory, many have come to believe. We have had 21 baptisms, and many also joining the church as members and contributing to the life of the church (nine of them were baptised in our last baptismal service on 3 July - see photo).
The passage in Mark 4: 26-27 comes to my mind:
'This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how'.
God asks of us to be faithful in spreading the Word; he gives the growth! The Lord is saving today. His blood is still powerful to cleanse, heal, forgive and restore, and he is faithful to his word, which never return to him empty, and we will continue to proclaim it with his strength.
We appreciate your prayers for us and we give thanks and praise the our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Pastor Udo Mueller
