If you received a pamphlet in your letterbox, we want to thank you for taking the time to read it and for visiting our website. Please accept this pamphlet as an invitation to our church here in Whakatane.
If your letterbox is like ours, it gets pretty full each day with many important adverts and even more important mail. In the midst of it all, you found our little pamphlet with the most important message you will every read. This message is more then a piece of advertising, well beyond the definition of “junk mail” and posted personally to you from the heart of God.
This message from God comes to you through His Word, the Holy Bible. It is a message of hope, but not just any hope, it is the message of eternal hope. We all have hopes, desires and ambitions, but without this message none of us have any hope beyond the life we are now living. The Bible tells us in Titus 1:2 that we have “hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;”
Please take a few minutes to read how God tells us to receive this eternal hope, and follow this link on our page for more information, IS HEAVEN YOUR HOME.
