My Home Church since day1 of my Life, due to the nature of work that I have I'am no longer connected physically to the church I'm very much dependent on the virtual service by the other congregation. Im very happy and thankful to the people behind and to God for hearing my prayers na myta naa sad ang BBF ani. God is always the Great Master of everything.
I can now listen to the sermon from my home church while working on site.

THANK YOU BBF.
COVID 19 (Coronavirus) is scary. It’s scary because it makes us look at our own mortality. Perhaps we are not ready to leave our love ones, we still have projects to fulfill. unfinished task to do; etc.

If you know Jesus, you have no reason to fear and it's always wise to be thorough in following proper precautions. Be wise. Fear is not the proper response.

The Bible has a lot to say about “pestilence” and our response to it! The word “pestilence” is often translated as “plague” or “disaster” in new versions of the English Bible.

Just be reminded that God is still in control of every situation. Just cling to Him no matter what. Continue to claim His promises. Do not confine your prayers to your self or family alone but expand it worldwide. Please include those who are anti-Christians. Who knows they will experience spiritual salvation in this crisis.

Please pray for our government authorities that they will act in a prudent way. Include also our medical workers for they are at the forefront at this time. We should pray for the doctors and medical researchers who are working to create a vaccine for this virus and care for those affected.

Don't forget to extend help to those who are economically needy. While the rich are panic buying, hoarding, securing more, the poor has almost nothing. All they can say is "Bahala Na!"

Remember God is still in His throne and is Sovereign. Let us trust Him more and more!
Our sister Prima Ramirez is now with the Lord our Maker. A nightly vigil service starts tonight at 7:30 P.M. at the Ramirez residence, Purok 8, Camputhaw, Cebu City. Let us keep praying for the family.
Our agreed monthly meeting related to intentional evangelism and discipleship is every 3rd Friday of the month. Therefore, our next meeting will be on Sep. 15, 2017.

For this month, we are going to meet on August 28, 2017 (monday), 9am, BBF, since it is a holiday. Our agenda are the following: (1) updates of the SMS forms; (2) Training for 1-verse evangelism; (3) The things to do after August-whole month prayer; and, (4) The things to improve regarding our SMS campaign (if there are any).

Please relay this INFO to all BBF ministers, leaders, board and church members of the church who are willing to be part of this movement. Maraming salamat po! :-)
August 1, 2017 will be the first day to give at least 2 minutes of our time to pray for the PRE-BELIEVERS that we are going to reach out. Please remind our people. Leaders, please remind your people under you. God bless your hearts.
SOUL-WINNING PROJECT: Let's look for 4 to 12 people who are the target for our intentional evangelism and discipleship. Don't share the gospel yet.

Our Story

BANAWA BIBLE FELLOWSHIP - HISTORY

Banawa Bible Fellowship started out when Canadian EFC Missionary couple Dr. Arvid and Ruth Olson, came to the Philippines to help put up an EFC Bible Seminary now known as Evangelical Theological College of the Philippines (ETCP). As the building started to rise, he then saw the potential of using the facility not only for theological training but also for Christian fellowships or Sunday church meetings.

Dr. Olson, who was then attending at Central EFC, then challenged a few people there to consider starting an outreach in the Banawa area using the ETCP facility as the future venue. Three couples from Central EFC and one couple from Lahug EFC were interested. Aside from the Olsons, the other couples were Central EFC’s Jerry and Loida Ares, Romulo and Elisa Saavedra, with Lahug EFC’s Allen and Lynlyn Badayos. They soon formed the core group.

The group initially met for planning at the Goody Goody Ice Cream bar along Mango Avenue on July 4, 1988. The group decided that the best way to start a church planting effort is through prayer.

The Llamera’s home, where the Badayos were residing located across ETCP, offered their place as the prayer venue. It was also called the “Power Station”. Weekly prayers were held in their place, claiming the community for Christ. With a few contacts from the community, a Bible study was started. Soon, it became Banawa Bible Study Fellowship (BBSF).

Central EFC made an official commissioning of the core group on a Sunday worship. For several Sunday afternoons, people from the church came to Banawa for visitation and evangelism – reaching out as far as Guadalupe and the Labangon area. God blessed the work and a small congregation was established. By last week of September 1988, the first afternoon worship service was conducted at the unfinished ETCP building.

On January 1989, the group decided to have the worship service transferred in the morning, and chose the fourth Sunday for that occasion. Soon, BBSF did not remain a Bible study fellowship but have grown into a church, now known as Banawa Bible Fellowship (BBF).

The church, through its leaders, started out a pre-school and managed it for four years but transferred the leadership of the school to ETCP for better use of facility. The school is now in full operation from pre-school to high school.

A number of pastors, workers and foreign missionaries have come and gone to minister to the church; others have been called to minister to other churches here and abroad. The Goody Goody Ice Cream Bar has long been gone, but BBF stands where it has been planted – to be a transformed and transforming community.

BBF now is also a missionary sending church. On 2006, Catherine Mesa was commissioned as a missionary to Thailand. She ministers to the students along the border of Thailand and Myanmar (Burma). On 2008, Ptr. Randy and Elsa Ranoco were sent to a church planting work to minister to the Sagpangan tribe in Palawan. On 2011, Ptr. Allan and Mrs. Tina Abong turned over the leadership of an existing outreach at Tisa, Cebu City to BBF, now the Lily of the Valley Community Center. Ptr. Walter Conson and family and BBF-ETCP weekenders minister to the surrounding neighborhood. In 2013, BBF partnered with the couple Mr. Dongdong and Mrs. Cecille Estrella to minister to the people in Caridad, Tuburan, sending BBF weekender Ptr. John Alvin Reposposa of ETCP. At present, Ptr. Rymart Benihigan leads the outreach there and recently had 9 believers baptized.

Banawa Bible Fellowship is a living testament of God’s power at work in the lives of His redeemed people.

Being a community in the city, BBF gives God the glory for working in and through the church to help fulfill the Great Commission in this generation. To God be the glory!
