This past Sunday evening, about seventy-five folks from six Oak Cliff congregations gathered for a time of worship and testimony at Lake Cliff Park. The time together was sweet and the sharing was encouraging. God is at work in Oak Cliff!
Plan now to join us next year for the 2013 Oak Cliff Pentecost Festival – Sunday, May 19! Until then, enjoy the photos and join the prayers!
Our Declaration of Faith & Prayer
We are God’s holy people, brothers and sisters in Christ. May God our Father give us His grace and peace.
We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for each other. We thank him because of our faith in Jesus and our love for all of God’s people. Our faith and love is based on the hope we have, that is stored up for us in heaven. We are talking about the good news that has come to us, that is bearing fruit and growing all over the world.
For this reason, we will not stop praying. We ask God to fill us with the knowledge of what he wants. We pray that He will give us spiritual wisdom and understanding. We pray that we will lead a life that is worthy of the Lord.
We pray that we will please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing to know Him better, being strengthened in his glorious power – full of endurance and patience. And giving joyful thanks to the Father. For He has made us fit to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light!
Now to him who is able to do far more than we could ever ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Give him glory in the church and in Christ Jesus. Give him glory throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.
