Dedicated to A Holy Purpose

08/15/2020

(Unfortunately, Amazing Facts needs to move the date of the W.O.R.D. Center grand opening mentioned below. Please continue to visit amazingfacts.org for updates about this exciting event!)

Dedicated to A Holy Purpose image oneNo building in the ancient world surpassed the beauty and splendor of Solomon’s Temple. Colossal stones were quarried, beautiful gems were acquired, and gold and silver were used for one purpose: to direct people to the God of heaven.

Thousands gathered in Jerusalem for the dedication service. Even statesmen from other nations traveled to witness the event. A special platform was built for Solomon on which he would address the people and offer a dedicatory prayer.

One part of Solomon’s prayer stands out in my mind as we prepare to dedicate the new W.O.R.D. Center this fall—an evangelistic facility you have helped to build to spread the three angels’ messages.

Dedicated to A Holy Purpose image oneSolomon prayed on behalf of those who were not Israelites but had heard of the name of the Lord and of His mighty works. The king pleaded with God to hear the prayers of these people, “that all the peoples of the earth may know Your name and fear You” (1 Kings 8:43).

As we prepare to dedicate the W.O.R.D. Center, including the new Amazing Facts office facility and warehouse, it is my earnest prayer that many people all around the world will come to know the God of heaven because of your involvement.

The new buildings have one purpose: to share the everlasting gospel with “every nation, tribe, tongue, and people” (Revelation 14:6). Every classroom, every door, every seat, every desk, and every microphone and camera will uplift Christ and prepare people for Jesus’ soon return.Dedicated to A Holy Purpose image two

The W.O.R.D. Center is not for a select group of people; it is “a house of prayer for all nations” (Isaiah 56:7). No other earthly structure can surpass the beauty and splendor of a worship and outreach center dedicated to sharing the life-changing Word of God with the world.

Thank you for helping bring people from all nations to a saving knowledge and relationship with Jesus Christ.

You’re Invited to the Grand Opening of the W.O.R.D. Center!


You’re Invited to the Grand Opening of the W.O.R.D. Center! image twoWhile the COVID-19 lockdown somewhat slowed the progress on the construction of the worship center this spring, praise the Lord, many workers kept coming and great headway was made. While following the state’s strict guidelines, they were able to continue essential building work.

A grand opening of the worship and evangelistic center is planned for September, and we expect a full house. We’re planning an inspirational program that uplifts God’s mighty work that you’ve been a part of accomplishing. Special guests will join us in celebrating a new opportunity to advance the everlasting gospel into all the world from the W.O.R.D. Center.

Center! image threeOne of the first things planned for this outreach center is to conduct, broadcast, and record a new evangelistic program, along with training a fresh crop of AFCOE students. This is why we’ve built this heaven-blessed building together!

As you will see on the financial report on the next page, with a little more help, we are nearing the goal of dedicating both the worship and office structures debt-free! Your sacrificial and loving gifts will play a key part in advancing God’s work in these last days.

If you are able, please join us on September 26 to ask God’s special blessing on the worldwide work that will flow from the W.O.R.D. Center. For those who cannot personally attend the service, we’ll livestream the program.

The chapel room and church offices are ready for use, and classroom cupboards and carpets have been installed. Kitchen flooring and equipment are also finished, and solar panels are being installed to reduce the cost of electricity in both the worship/evangelistic center and the office building.
