A LETTER FROM THE FEBC PRESIDENT
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4:18-19).
In these verses from Luke, Jesus announced the beginning of new life in the Kingdom. As we enter into a new year, let’s remember we serve the One who provides new beginnings to all who come to Him.
Throughout His earthly ministry, Jesus invited people to join in the new life of the Kingdom, and receive salvation, healing, and hope. The Good News message carries the promise that no matter how broken a person may be, the Lord’s gifts of grace and mercy are sufficient to see their life made whole.
God is the author of new beginnings. His promises are reliable. As the old hymn says, “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness….on Christ the solid rock I stand.”
Thank you for your faithful commitment to prayer and partnering with us to see the hope of the Good News carried to those who are waiting to hear.
Until all have heard,
Edward W. Cannon
President and CEO
