About Me

Hi, my name is Alice and I would like to welcome you to my site!

I’m a Bible-believing Christian and being such, I believe in the supreme authority of the Bible over all matters of the Christian faith. I believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible written Word of God, given to us by God, by which we may know Him on a deeper and more personal way.

It is also through the Bible that we may know God’s will, His decrees and precepts. I submit to the authority of God’s written word, the Bible, and acknowledge that it alone has the truth about God and it is our manual on how to live our lives here on earth.

I put up this website as a platform for me to share God’s Word to those who have not yet come to a saving knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and also to encourage fellow believers to stand firm in their faith and to assure them that they have made the right decision to surrender their lives to Christ and become His followers.

My Story

I was not raised in a Christian home but I have always considered myself to be a Christian. Well, that’s because I attended masses almost every Sunday, and having attended Catholic schools, I religiously practiced what every devout Roman Catholic practices so I thought I was a good person, that I was a Christian and I will go to heaven when I die.

But little did I know that going to Church every Sunday or even every day and doing all those religious rites does not make you a Christian. A Christian, which means follower of Christ, is one who has a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ; one who has completely surrendered his life to God, received Christ as Lord and personal Savior (John 1:12).

One summer, when I was about 10 or 11 years old, I was invited to attend Daily Vacation Bible School (DVBS) in our neighborhood and before it ended, I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, for the very first time. I wish I could say that my life had a complete “turn around” after my first encounter with my Lord, but that’s not what happened. Instead, I held on to what I’ve gotten to know and practiced.

A couple of years had passed and I was invited to attend a Church service and there, for the second time, I surrendered my life to the Lord. I thought I truly understood what it means to be a follower of Christ considering that I was more matured then than when I prayed the sinner’s prayer for the first time before. But I easily drifted back into the nominal Christian that I was. I continued to live my old life, attending masses whenever convenient.

It was not until the Lord brought me to another country to earn a living that God really had His grip on me. God allowed me to go through difficult times and trials for me to realize that I needed Him in my life. So I finally accepted my best friend’s invitation to come to their Church. There I personally encountered the Lord and felt an amazing joy that I never experienced before. I took my relationship with the Lord more seriously. I recommitted my life to Him, took another step of faith and obedience and submitted for water baptism and started serving God in the music ministry.

My First Ministry: Music

Ever since childhood, I’ve dreamed of playing the guitar. And every time I see somebody playing the guitar, I felt so envious and wished that I could too. We did not have a guitar at home so I used to borrow one and started learning on my own. Me and my cousins had a country gospel songbook with guitar chords so we took turns learning. I started with the songs with the simplest chords and patiently learned on my own.

When I committed to the music ministry, I took the opportunity to become better in playing the guitar. I enrolled in the short course that our Church offered and by the grace of God after completing the basic guitar lessons, God started using me as a guitarist for praise and worship inside the Church and also during street preaching. I was so blessed and joyful to be serving God with the talent He has given me.

Sharing the Word of God

Today, I am honored to be serving God in the education ministry. I am well aware that preaching and teaching God’s Word behind the pulpit is indeed a huge responsibility, which at the same time comes with great accountability. But serving God in this ministry has made me desire to get to know Him more by reading and meditating His written Word, the Bible. I have become more motivated to read, study and meditate the Word of God especially now that biblical Christianity is becoming quite unpopular.

Many people who claim to be Christians do not really believe in the authority of the Bible. Instead, they redefine what God has clearly said in His written word. People twist the Word of God in a way that will support their beliefs. They have lowered God’s standards especially on morality. Today more than ever, biblical Christianity is under attack and Christians who hold to the Bible as authoritative are criticized and accused of being bigots and intolerant towards others who hold to a different view.

Moving Forward

It’s time that we get back to the Bible and practice what it really teaches. It’s time that we live our lives in a way that pleases God. It’s time we live our lives following Jesus’ example when He lived His human life on earth, as what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 11:1.

I then encourage everyone to contend for the faith, stand firm, give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord (Jude 3 & 1 Corinthians 15:58).

May the good Lord continually bless and prosper you!

Waiting for His return,
Alice
