"First Sunday in Advent"
watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and
drunkennes and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly
like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the
whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have
strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and
to stand before the Son of Man."
Luke 21:34-36 (ESV)
is the beginning of the Church Calendar Year. This marks the First
Coming or Advent of our Lord, Jesus Christ. He came into this world as
was promised from Genesis to the Prophets. Jesus as our true
Saviour was incarnate (made flesh) to pay the price for the sins of all
the world. We celebrate His coming then and look forward to His Second
Coming (His Second Advent).
"We seek to honor and glorify the Triune God by sharing our faith in Jesus Christ as man's only Savior."
