A letter to our churches around the world:
The Lord's Supper Service

January 25, 2020 

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

As a Christ-centered fellowship throughout the International Ministerial Congress of the Church of God (Seventh Day), we celebrate and proclaim the Lord Jesus Christ on the annual memorial of the Lord’s Supper.

This years’ service will be held on Friday evening, 26 March 2021.

It’s a time of deep reflection on the price paid for our redemption, on the nature of God’s love, and what our personal response ought to be as a result of being chosen by Jesus.

The Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to remember Him this way until He returns. Thus, we participate in the symbol of the bread, the covenant cup of the fruit of the vine, and rising from the table of fellowship we pick up a towel and proceed to wash one another’s feet.

This memorial service shared in community proclaims the significance of Jesus’ death, and what the ensuing power of His resurrection means.

For those who might find it helpful, we produced two videos last year which are available on the IMC video page. One video relates to having the Lord’s Supper service at home – if as a church community you’re still unable to meet because of civic health restrictions.

We pray that over the next two months, in the lead-up to this important commemoration for baptised members of the Body of Christ, that we carefully meditate and consider the rich meaning conveyed through the symbols of this annual service. Remember, the Lord’s Supper is both a memorial of His death and a proclamation of His glory and preeminence.

Let’s pray with all the more conviction, in the name of Jesus, so that we’re “worthy to stand before the Son of Man.”

On behalf of the International Ministerial Congress,

Signed

IMC ANNUAL SABBATH 2020

The International Ministerial Congress actively works to take the gospel to the world by equipping our national conferences, pastors and missionaries. We work for doctrinal unity, and as such, we thank God for his good work among us, even during this time of pandemic.

Our identity and purpose is in Jesus Christ alone - in His word, in His will, for His glory, for ever and ever. However, we need "our daily bread" resources to continue ministering to those needs around us.

May our celebration together around the world during this Sabbath on 7 November 2020 unite us further, strengthen us, and help us build greater Kingdom in-roads, as we give thanks for your donations and look forward to working together as Ambassadors of Christ.

Pastors are encouraged to download/play this pre-recorded service this coming Sabbath, 7 November 2020. (English & Spanish)

Message from our President

Jesus commissions us to live and share the gospel, and this implies both a pressing need and a great sense of urgency. With the gospel as the only means of salvation for humanity and faced with the reality of sin, suffering and death that characterizes this post-modern age in which we live, the people of God must redirect their pastoral work in the light of this divine mandate:
 
And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 18-20 NASB)
 
The whole word for the whole world means: preaching the gospel to the unreached without adding to or taking away from Jesus’ message; edifying all believers with all teachings in the Scriptures to become true Christian disciples; worshiping the one and only God in all time, place and circumstance, and opposing all idolatry which is sin; fellowshipping with one another as a sign and testimony of unity, overcoming cultural, racial, and linguistic barriers so the world will believe in Jesus; and serving our neighbors in order to transform their lives and surroundings.
 
Jesus sends us to carry out the totality of the redemptive mission. It is not a privilege for some, but a responsibility for all. We must go to the whole world, with the whole message from God’s word, knowing that He is with us all days—always, even to the end of the age.
Ramon Ruiz, IMC President
