BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE

GREETINGS FROM THE GENERAL SUPERINTENDENT

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. On behalf of the General Executive Board Marlene and I welcome you to the thirty-fourth General Conference of the Congregational Holiness Church.

From our beginning in the early days of the twentieth century, leadership from across our denomination have met as we are this week to take care of the business of the greater kingdom of God, as it is reflected through the various ministries of the Congregational Holiness Church. Thank you for being part of this Conference and for your input, which will ensure that we continue to be an effective voice in our world, touching multitudes with the life changing message of Jesus Christ.


The theme for this General Conference, "Building For The Future," expresses the commitment we should have as we "reach for those things which are still before us." While we have so much to be thankful for, and so many to whom we are indebted, we have not yet attained all our Lord has for us, but we are in pursuit of it. I'm sure I speak for each of you when I say how thankful I am that God has given us the opportunity to serve Hirn. Part of this responsibility mandates that we prepare the next generation. Since no man knows the day nor the hour when our Lord will return, we must occupy until He comes. It is the passionate cry of my heart to bring forth holy fruit that will produce everlasting life, not just for me, but for a generation yet to be born.


I trust you will enjoy the times of worship and fellowship for the next three days. The older I get, the more I'm convinced we should cherish our times together. We draw strength and encouragement from one another. So, enjoy the journey and celebrate God's goodness to us as we join hands to make our denomination the best it can be. Let us have an attentive ear to what the Spirit of God will say to us, and then let us respond with grateful and humble hearts.

When the last item of business has been completed, and the gavel has sounded our adjournment, let us leave saying it was good to be part of what God is doing for and through the Congregational Holiness Church.

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bishop Ronald Wilson
