Grace and peace be to you from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. I am thrilled at the thought of our annual convention drawing near. It is the one time of the year when our assembly leadership, churches throughout California and foreign delegates come together in fellowship for the sole purpose of spiritual edification and glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ.
Last year our vision was cast: “We see the International Assemblies of the FirstBorn as a dynamic, spirit-filled, multi-cultural organization, reaching the world with the gospel and expanding God’s kingdom through church and leadership development.” On “wings as eagles” we aspire to not only visualize the plan but to realize the vision as it comes to fruition. This year our focus will be on expanding the kingdom of God. Our emphasis will be on the strengthening and building up of California and we’re excited as we begin by “Breaking New Ground” at convention. You don’t want to miss this opportunity to partake in this God-inspired endeavor to further God’s kingdom in our beloved assembly of the FIRSTBORN!
Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock…” (NIV)
Join us July 15-19 for this “ground-breaking” event. I look forward to seeing you!
Grateful in His service,
Reverend Ben Refuerzo
FAFB/IAFB General Superintendent
