Believers in Jesus Christ are invited to all our church gatherings and events. St Peter's Holy Apostolic Church has always provided fellowship with other Christians around the world. We are therefore inviting you to our special all-night prayer in Greater London for spiritual revival and personal growth in the Word of God, led by the Holy Spirit.
In St Peter's Holy Apostolic Church gathering together has also compounded importance to the relationship of the Christian brethren. The Bible makes it clear that a right relationship with God requires a "vertical" and "horizontal" alignment. That is, we must have a vertical fellowship with God and a horizontal fellowship with other believers. It is not possible to love God and refuse to love the brethren. If you have a problem loving other Christians and non-believers you have a problem in your relationship with God. Scripture warns us that unforgiveness toward others will void God's forgiveness of our own sins (Matt. 6:15).
John wrote, "He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him" (1 John 2:9-10).
One of the most important reasons that we should meet together during this special event in Greater London is to practice love toward the brethren in the form of fellowship. The Bible clearly shows that if we have a right relationship with God, we have fellowship with others believers. "But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin" (1 John 1:7).
Keeping ourselves in love and harmony with other believers keeps us humble before God so that Christ's blood can continue to cleanse us from our sins. As a church we believe that coming together for a purpose to worship God is an act of obedience to God.Lets not forget to come together, as attending church events is also a matter of obeying God's Word. However, let's meet and rejoice in the Lord and attend the all-night prayer session in Greater London.
The writer of the Hebrew epistle tells us not to forsake assembling together, implying that continued absence can lead to wilful sin. "And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. For if we sin will-fully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no-longer remains a sacrifice for sins," (Hebrew. 10:24-26).
Once again, we are reminded that a great part of the purpose of this gathering is for the consideration of our brethren, coming together to help motivate and encourage one another spiritually. This is a responsibility charged to every believer. To reject church attendance/gatherings is a rejection of one of the sacred duties of the believer to praise God, wholeheartedly. "Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin" (James 4:17).
Brethren and sisters in Christ, lets meet always in prayer and proclaim victory against all evil spirits. By the grace of God I look forward to meeting you always.
Stay blessed always, in Jesus Christ!
