G3 Testimony Series - Missions is to Ultimately Please and Glorify God

By Arsielle Joy Poquiz

Before attending the G3 Conference, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was very hesitant on

going due to fear of what might be taught or if I was going to get judged. However, I can testify that the conference was nothing but spiritually sustaining.

The theme of this year’s conference was Biblical Missions. Missions is mostly interpreted as going to an unknown place and sharing the gospel. Although this may be true, Missions is so much more. Missions is creating a relationship with someone. Missions is about getting out of our comfort zone. Missions is to ultimately please and glorify God.

One of the sermons that pulled at my heartstrings was called “Mercy for Sinners, Not Saints” which is found in Jonah 4. The preacher, Mark Dever, talked about God’s goodness - if in our eyes is bad, then we should examine ourselves. To add, he preaches on how compassion should not be forced, for our self-pride, and should ultimately come from God. The reason why this sermon resonates with me is because of how important it is to examine ourselves every day.

The heart is deceitful (Jeremiah 17:9) therefore, we should always make sure that our desires, motivations, and thoughts are Christ-centered. For this reason, Missions should never be about us but rather to do God’s will with a sound mind and heart.

1 Corinthians 10:31

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

G3 Testimony Series - Spreading The “Fragrance” of Jesus in The Local Community

By Maryanne Borja

The Gospel, Grace, Glory Conference (G3) emphasized the role and importance of the local church in missions. In order to build healthy new churches, it is very important to have expository pulpit preaching and to have biblically qualified leaders (Titus 1:5-9, 1 Timothy 3:1-13, 1 Peter 5:1-4). There must also be real accountability from within the church and to those who are being sent out to the mission field.

As a church we must carefully examine our underlying motive as we participate in the mission of God. What is the message that we are preaching? What have we done to spread the fragrance of Jesus in the local community of Commonwealth Avenue that Christ Almighty Baptist Church is located in?


G3 Testimony Series - Scripture Alone is All Sufficient

By Sofiya Saria

Missions is a big part in our daily walk with Christ. It was commissioned by Jesus Christ, before His ascension to make disciples of all nation, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that He has commanded us (Matthew 28:19-20).

Hearing about G3, I thought that it would be a great opportunity to learn, be equipped, as well as fellowship with brothers and sisters in Christ under the preaching of the Word of God and what a blessing it was.

G3 - Gospel, Grace, Glory - is a biblical conference held annually whose mission is to educate, encourage, and equip for the work of ministry and the glory of God. This year’s topic was based on biblical missions. It was a blessed, edifying and encouraging time for all of us.

I would like to share a few things I’ve learned in the conference:  

  1. Scripture alone is all sufficient and every believer must saturate themselves in the Word of God, the Bible.

  2. The role of the local church is important in the work of missions. All missionaries should be part of a local church.  

  3. All missionaries should have the qualifications of an elder (1 Timothy and Titus) under the discipling of biblical elders from their local church. One of the preacher’s said that “biblical elders equates a biblical church, a biblical church equates biblical missionaries, biblical missionaries equates to biblical missions”

  4. We must preach the Gospel - “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17

On a final note, I would like to share a statement mentioned by one of the preachers and I quote “Zeal and passion driven missions will never work unless controlled or governed by the Word of God”

Therefore let us work together, encouraging one another to go even deeper in the study of the Word of God.

G3 Testimony Series - What Is Your Calling?

By: Sean Henry

This annual Christian conference stays true to the Word of Jesus Christ and the Scripture. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity through the giving of our congregation who all made this possible. Those of us who attended were truly in the presence of God, God's children, Biblical preachers, and faithful worship bands.

We need to ask ourselves the following three questions:

  • Is it your calling to be a missionary right now?

  • Is it your calling to be a missionary in the future?

  • Or is it your calling to stay in your local church and help support missionaries?

We need to pray about this, as well as pray for our missionaries.

G3 was an amazing experience for me and I highly suggest more of the church leaders to attend these conferences. In closing, Romans 15:20-21 (KJV) says, “Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation: But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.”

G3 Testimony Series - A Spiritual Feast

By: Sian Kiara Saria

The G3 Conference reminded me of an overflowing chalice of grace, fellowship, and joy over the Gospel. It is like a feast, wherein we partook in as much spiritual food inside of us. Like most Filipino feasts, those who attended the conference took home spiritual food to delight in as well.

The Church plays a significant role in the Great Commission. What should come next after sharing the Gospel to unreached peoples is the establishment of churches. Essentially, these churches are the living testimony of the Gospel. In addition to that, they oversee the supporting and sending out of missionaries; that is, missionaries who are taught and trained by Biblical elders.

Nevertheless, all Christians are called to share the Gospel to all nations. I have learnt that we must not feel discouraged, because Jesus will save those He has chosen. We must not rest until all the people of God find their rest in Him.
