During this time of mandated "shelter in place" requirement, the Quiring Tuesday evening Bible study has found a new way to continue meeting and encouraging one another. Don is not comfortable with video streaming, so we've all decided to use our time to pray for one another, our church leaders and church families, for our government leaders and those faced with managing life in different ways. We have set up a group text that goes out during our normal meeting time. Don starts with a suggestion to encourage our group through the reading of God's word. Last nights reading; Isaiah chapter 40. Following our reading we all begin receiving prayer requests leading us into our prayer time. Although we miss the personal fellowship, we are practicing the "social distancing". We're praying and trusting that God would accomplish great things for His honor and glory, and our nation will heal and can resume normal activities soon.
Happy Birthday, Dr. Innes!
When I first moved to SF in 1977 and was looking for a place to go to church, I walked by the People's Temple a couple of times and had decided to check it out. There were so many unusual church names and I didn't know one from the other. I attended Hamilton Square Baptist Church first because I recognized "Baptist Church". I was immediately encouraged to get involved in the ministry there. Nothing major, but enough to feed my sense of responsibility and, as I became increasingly involved, I never did check out People's Temple. I had also been approached several times by members of the People's Temple when I was downtown, and they would invite me to go to church with them. It would be three years later, as I was watching the news in horror, that I saw the SF Peoples Temple location and realized it was the church I was determined to check out when I first arrived. I might not be here today had the Lord not lead me to Hamilton Square Baptist Church.
Sitting here listening to "He Lives" on a music website and wondering if it is still the choir's anthem at HSBC.
It was so good to be back at HSBC, my Baptist Cathedral, today and see you all. Michele and I enjoyed signing books between services. I treasure every chance I get to visit and see you all. I had a ball being with you in choir practice before I went to the airport to fly home tonight. See you again soon!
This is where God lead me to meet my wife of fifty-two years. God's carries out His marvelous plans in mysterious ways. Glory be to Him.

Thoughts for Those of Us Who Have Gotten Too Comfortable

Livestream services are ok for now. They are better than nothing; but don’t get too comfortable!

Baptist World Mission

Dr. David and Jean Potter will retire from missionary service with BWM at the end of October. The Potters were appointed by BWM in 1997 and have served in Hungary since April of 1999.

The Potters are the rare example of a couple who took years of stateside ministry experience with them to the mission field. Mature, stable and humble leadership have been the hallmarks of their missionary service. Dwight Schultz, their sending pastor, reflected on their ministry, “churches have been strengthened and planted, men have been trained and mentored into ministry, and many men and women have seen their lives transformed.” Dr. Brosnan, their field administrator remarked, “A preeminent trait of Dr. Potter’s missionary work has been his role in training nationals for ministry. By life and word the Potters have left their imprint upon the lives and ministries of Hungarian preachers and church leaders.” Although the inevitable progress of life eventually ends every missionary’s direct ministry, the Potters have the joy of retiring with ongoing visible fruit and the assurance that their labor was “not in vain in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58).

Please pray for David and Jean as they transition back to America. Dr. Potter has accepted a part-time position on the seminary faculty of Maranatha Baptist University, beginning in January.

Some Biblical principles for you to remember over the next several weeks during this election season.

1. Whoever is elected, even if it's not who you support, is who God allowed.God is the One who removes kings and sets up kings. (Daniel 2:21)

2. Christians should pray publicly and privately for whoever is elected in November, even if it's the candidate they villainize. For it is good and pleasing to God to pray for all those in high positions. And remember, Paul wrote this about Roman emperors who would one day behead him. (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

3. The tide of history is under the control of Christ, not the Republican or Democratic party. Jesus is the only One worthy to open the scroll of history. (Revelation 5:9)

4. Neither Trump nor Biden are your deliverer. That is Christ alone. We do not put our hope in princes or in any son of man because they will all die and return to dust. (Psalm 146:3-4)

5. There are certain things that belong to the government's jurisdiction. And there are certain things that don't. Render to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's. (Matthew 22:21)

6. Christian, remember that someone's view of Christ could be marred by the venom you spit regarding the candidate you don't like. Your tongue will either be used to build up or harm. Use it appropriately. (James 3:6)

7. Don't give your allegiance to any worldly system or party. Give your allegiance to Christ alone. You cannot serve two masters. (Matthew 6:24)

8. It is better to love your neighbor than to rudely win an argument against them. (Matthew 22:39)

9. Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Mike Pence, Kamala Harris, Nanci Pelosi, every conservative, and every liberal are all made in God's image and should be treated with dignity. (Genesis 1:27)

10. Christ will build His church no matter who wins the election. Do not fear. Put your trust in His promise. (Matthew 16:18)

11. There's nothing godly about denying truth and promoting falsehood in order to make your candidate look good. (Ephesians 4:25)

12. Kill the phrase, "You're not a true Christian unless you vote for ___________." What makes someone a Christian is not how they vote. It's faith in what Christ did on the cross on their behalf. (Romans 3:23-26)

13. Blessed is the man who meditates day and night on the Word of God.....not their social media feed, Fox News, CNN, etc. Put your phone away and turn your TV off and plunge your heart into God's Word. (Psalm 1:1-2)

14. The Kingdom of Jesus is not of this world. It's not contained in the platform of the Republican or Democratic party. Both of those parties will bow before Him. (John 18:36)

15. While I love our country and I'm so thankful to live here, our citizenship as Christians is not ultimately in America. It is in heaven and from it, we await a Savior. We're not home here. We are sojourners and strangers. (Philippians 3:20)

16. Ultimately, no politician is going to change the hearts of the American people. Scripture says the hearts of man are completely wicked and will always devolve into madness. Only the Gospel of Christ can transform people's hearts. (Romans 3:10-24)

17. On the day of judgment, people will give an account for every word (or careless Facebook post they shared.)(Matthew 12:36)

18. We do not wrestle against politicians on the other side. We wrestle against powers over the present darkness. (Ephesians 6:12)

19. Submit to rulers and authorities, be ready for every good work, speak evil of no one, avoid quarreling, be gentle, and show perfect courtesy to everyone. (Titus 3:1-2)

20. Remember Jesus Christ, risen from the dead. He's the point of everything. Nothing can stop Him. He will reign forever and ever. (2 Timothy 2:8)

[06/20/20]   BLESSING ALERT!
Today, I was up in my apartment at the church when the doorbell rang furiously.

Usually, I look out the window in the steeple to see who it is before responding. It was the mailman.

“Just leave it at the door. I’ll be right down. Thank you.”

“NO. Please come down,” was his reply.

I went to the front door. He handed me four envelopes, but was staring at the tract rack in the lobby.

“May I have some of those?” He asked.

“Of course! Oh, and here are a few more. Take whatever you will read.”

He said, “I have a Bible, but I don’t understand it. Maybe this will help me.”


He did not have time to stay, because he was on duty.

So...pray for our mailman. He is searching. I am hearing of others who are seeking answers.

Be faithful, Brothers and Sisters! We have the Answer the world is seeking!

—Pastor Dan

Exciting news from Stanly & Anna Wong! Their son, Josiah prayed to ask Jesus to save his soul!

Staying at home and ministering to family right now is a tremendous blessing!

Pastor Innes’ Outline for Sunday’s Livestream Church Service - March 22, 2020

March 22,2020 - E-Bulletin

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me;
Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

We are working on a plan for the continuance of our meeting. Be praying.

Three things out need to know immediately:

1. Pastor will livestream (Wednesday - March 18) tonight at 7 pm

2. We will livestream at 11 am on Sunday to lay out the plan for the future.

3. If you are willing to help with phone calling a few people on a regular basis, please let me know.

We hope you will participate in this and pass the word along to everyone in the church you know.

Start emailing me your questions right away at [email protected] or through this medium.

Watch your email messages. We will be sending some things out to you soon.
