Building Renovation

After many years of a pilgrim existence as a church, moving from one place to another, the Lord Jesus graciously provided us with a lot and building through the contributions and help of the members and the generosity of other churches. The present building of the church was inaugurated in 1997 and it has been such a great help to the church for our regular weekly stated meetings of worship and prayers, special times of fellowships, especial evangelistic meetings, yearly Pastors’ Conferences, regular Pastors’ Fraternal, and other activities.

Now the time has come for us to do major changes to our building in order to fit our present and future needs as a church. The increased attendance on the Lord’s Day has made the place too crowded for us, especially when we have our special evangelistic meetings. We also need rooms for the Sunday schools for children, and private rooms for pastoral counseling. In addition to this, the road besides the church’s building has become a main road for vehicles to use and noise has become a big problem during our church’s services. The peace and quite we used to enjoy during our church’s services is a thing in the past. Now the noise can become a big distraction to us.


In the light of this, the elders have proposed to the church that we should make a second floor of our present building and make it into our worship hall. This hall would be bigger since the entire floor will be used for worship. Then we can convert the ground floor, which we are presently using as our worship hall, into function rooms for Sunday schools, counseling rooms, library, and other functions. In order to reduce the noise of road traffic, we also want to close the worship hall on the second floor and put an air-conditioning unit.

The estimated cost of the building project is 2.5 million pesos or about 53,000 US dollars. The church has been able to save up 1 million pesos or about 21,000 US dollars for this project. We need about 1.5 million pesos or 32,000 US dollars so that we can begin the project. If you are interested in helping the church in this project, please contact us . . .

Hello Pastor and all members of your church,

I was looking at some of the area churches within the Cebu city area and came across your site. I am a member of the south Orlando baptist church in Orlando (southorlandobaptist.org), Florida and a former director of Sunday school and biblical studies. I enjoyed looking over your website and looking at your various pictures. I look forward of visiting you once I arrive later this year. As it is my plan to remain as a resident I will be looking to enjoin a church once there. I hope to introduce myself to you upon my arrival. I hope that all your construction plans go well and I do understand the challenges you face because I am an engineer and have encountered them during many projects I have managed. Noise abatement can become a trying issue. I look forward to meeting you and visiting your church soon.

May you remain in the Lords shadow.
