  • Overview
    The Republic of Kenya has a rich and diverse landscape and is famous for its safaris and diverse African wildlife in its reserves and national parks. Kenya features two major African landmarks: Mount Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa, and Lake Victoria, the second largest fresh-water lake in the world. It borders Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia. Established as a British colony in 1895, Kenya became an independent state in December of 1963. The Bantu peoples comprise sixty-six percent of Kenya’s population, and Swahili and English are its two official languages.
    More than eighty-two percent of Kenyans identify with one form or another of Christianity, with almost fifty percent claiming to be Protestant. Kenya has the potential to be a very strategic hub for mission endeavors throughout all of Africa. Sadly however, it is plagued with nominalism. Though Christian in name only, this majority-Christian country is marred by systemic corruption in its highest levels of government. Terrorist groups, drug traffickers, and Islam are all growing challenges for Kenya and its unstable government. Pray for church-planting efforts in Kenya, a country in dire need of communities of faith that live in the light of the Scriptures.

Preparing for the Lords Day

Our Sermon Text for This Sunday: Galatians 3:23-28

Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. 24 So then, the  law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith. 25 But now that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, 26 for in Christ Jesus you are all sons of God, through faith. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and

Catechism  Instruction of Gods Word

Doctrinal Standard – Baptist Catechism #108 (Compare WSC #97)

• Q. What is required to the worthy receiving of the Lord’s Supper?
• A. It is required of them that would worthily (that is, suitably) partake of the Lord’s Supper, that they examine themselves, of their knowledge to discern the Lord’s body; of their faith to feed upon Him; of their repentance, love, and new obedience: lest, coming unworthily, they eat and drink judgment to themselves.

Memory Verse(s)

• “Let a person examine himself, then, and so eat of the bread and drink of the cup” (I Corinthians 11:28, ESV).


• Study Passage: I Corinthians 11:17-34
• Bible Story: John 13:1-20


• Below is taken from chapter 30 of the The Baptist Confession of Faith 1689 – Notes by Peter Masters.
• “7. Worthy receivers, outwardly taking the visible elements in this ordinance, also receive them inwardly and spiritually by faith, truly and in fact, but not carnally and corporally [they do not receive real ­human flesh], and feed upon Christ crucified, and all the benefits of His death. The body and blood of Christ is not present corporally [as ­material body] or carnally [as physical flesh] but it is spiritually present to the faith of believers in the ordinance, just as the elements are present to their outward senses.11
11 Cor 10.16; 11.23-26.
• 8. All ignorant and ungodly persons who are unfit to enjoy communion with Christ are equally unworthy of the Lord’s Table, and therefore cannot, without great sin against Him, take a share in these holy mysteries or be admitted to the Supper, while they remain in that condition.12 Indeed, those who receive (the elements) unworthily, are guilty of the body and blood of the Lord, eating and drinking judgement to themselves.13
12 2 Cor 6.14-15. 13 1 Cor 11.29; Matt 7.6.”
