Singapore Bible Preaching Festival 2016January 7, 2017
On Dec 18, 2016, the World Mission Society Church of God Singapore (SGWMSCOG) held its 1st Bible Preaching Festival. Members of different age groups – students, youths, and adults participated actively in this inaugural event.
During the gathering at 9 am, excitement was already felt hanging in the air as the participants were eager to start the event. There were two language categories: English and Mandarin, and within each category, participants were divided into groups of 5 to 6. After a prayer to grace the event, the members went to their assigned group.
Participants presented the truth, standing in front of the small group, with the aid of a whiteboard. All brothers and sisters preached fervently and graciously. With firm faith, they presented topics such as The Secret of the Forgiveness of Sins, Jerusalem Mother, and Passover – The Way to Eternal Life. There were a total of two rounds, during which each member presented one topic for each round. After their presentation, an assigned grader awarded points to each presenter.
After hours of sincere preaching came the most anticipated award ceremony. Top three preachers of each of the three age groups were to be awarded. It was difficult to choose the winners as all brothers and sisters presented well. Finally, as the winners were announced and each of them went up to receive their award, giving thanks to God, cheers and applause resounded.
Through this Bible Preaching Festival, all participants were filled with the Holy Spirit as they armed themselves with the word of God.
