The Moments of Blessings Church of Fresno
Over 47 years ago, in a home on the west side of Fresno, a small group of people began to assemble on a regular basis to share and affirm one another in their spiritual and moral beliefs. As the group began to increase in size, they looked for a place to worship. After much searching, in July of 1976 one of our members happened upon a little church located at 922 S. Chance Avenue (formerly Eastgate Church of God) in the cities southeast corridor.
Along with the new location, came the responsibility of meeting the needs of those around us. To meet the demands of our community, the Moments of Blessings Church embarked on a partnership with the Community Food Bank, as a distribution site to provide food and other necessities to our neighbors in need. Recognizing the need to feed our children during the summer, the church began a summer lunch program for neighborhood children, there are youth outreach programs, a Prison ministry, a women's program (WIN-Women in Need) that targets all women from every walk of life as well as a Men's outreach. Realizing that charity begins at home then spreads abroad, Moments of Blessings Church also supports the Equator Faith Mission, which provides mission trips and outreach to Haiti, Jamaica, the West Indies and parts of Africa.
In 2011, the Moments of Blessings Church relocated to our current north campus location at 378 W. Fallbrook Avenue in the Riverpark Area of Fresno. The Lord has increased our territory and we are bringing the ministry of deliverance, hope, restoration and holiness to a new generation.
Family is the Heartbeat of Ministry
God fashioned the body of Christ after the structure that he ordained in marriage. The Word of God tells us that marriage is honorable in the sight of God and the bed is undefiled. He also said that he that findeth a wife, findeth a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. Many people have tried to alter the word of God, but His Word is true and shall stand forever. As the husband is the head of the home, so is Christ the head of the church. [Ephesians 5:22-24] 22 Wives should submit to their husbands as they do to the Lord;23 because the husband is head of the wife, just as the Messiah, as head of the Messianic Community, is himself the one who keeps the body safe. 24 Just as the Messianic Community submits to the Messiah, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
The Kingdom of Heaven towards the church is fashioned metaphorically as a marriage. When He returns, He called himself the bridegroom coming back for his bride. Revelation 21:2 (CJB) Also I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. We believe in marriage and we believe in strong family units. For more than 25 years, every January during the last weekend of the month, couples escaped to the Central California Coast for The Annual Into-Mate Couple's Marriage Retreat.
It was a time where couples came together for fellowship, fun, relaxation, spiritual rejuvenation, and marital strengthening. We will always celebrate holy matrimony as God has designed it and look forward to God's favor showering down on all of the families that were blessed to be a part of such an awesome experience. Couples are encouraged to continue carving out special time for one another to keep romance alive. Life can take its toll on the best of marriages, but keeping it Christ focused and spouse centered will help you navigate even through the roughest peaks and valleys. Apostle quite frequently admonished all couples, "Be good to yourself and each other."
Worshipping God Through Our Praise
Music is an important part of our corporate worship. Blessed with anointed musicians, praise and worship leaders and spirit-filled believers, God has anointed us to "raise the praise" and worship Him in the beauty of Holiness. We believe in giving everything we've got in total adoration for who He is and what He has done for us.
Because of His love, His compassion, and His tender mercies, we are not consumed. He is faithful to His Word. We are not ashamed to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Praise is who we are and what we do. Our unique style of worship has something for everyone. We can reach back and bring the foot stomping "Song Service" that carried us through many decades to more modern contemporary sounds of worship. We focus on the message of the songs as we endeavor to lift of Jesus and not dwell on our problems and pain. It is through losing sight on what we battle or go through daily and yielding completely to the power and presence of God that we find deliverance. We offer up the sacrifice of praise which is our reasonable service.
Audio/Visual Media Ministry
Our Sunday services are "Life Streamed" via our YouTube Channel— Moments of Blessings Sunday Glory as well as Facebook — Mob.Fresno, so that individuals who are serious about building their personal relationships with Christ, homebound and unable to attend services or for those that want a double and triple portion, or have a desire to share the Holy Ghost inspired messages and worship experience with those they love, can make a donation to the media ministry and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Expanding Our Borders
The Moments of Blessings House of Prayer Church of Fresno advanced to Phase III of our building project by opening our second location in the Riverpark area in Fresno, California. This is indeed exciting news in the Kingdom of GOD. During Phase I and II, some of you had the opportunity to participate in this project.
Our original facility has been a valuable asset to the southeast community for over 47-years and still going strong with a thriving Spanish ministry in operation. As we continue to expand our territory to reach the lost, strengthen and encourage the brotherhood, and help build stronger families we still need valuable community partnerships. Ultimately, we feel the mandate of GOD on us to continue moving forward and accomplish this task. 1 Chronicles 28:10 sums up our sentiments: “…So take this seriously. The LORD has chosen you to build a Temple as his sanctuary. Be strong, and do the work.” Your new and/or continued support of our efforts is vital to bringing this mandate to fruition.
James the 4th chapter states that we have not because we ask not. Therefore, we dare not to be remiss in appealing to all of you who believe in the mission and value of this ministry to assist us with furthering the work of the Kingdom. Our ministry is about helping people and bringing total deliverance to the whole man. We know according to GOD’S word that we are always rewarded for our giving and you can rest assure that you will be sowing into good soil.
All contributions are tax deductible.
We certainly appreciate your prayerful partnerships and want you to know that your gift will play a part in the salvation, healing and deliverance of countless souls that will have a chance to hear and experience the good news of Jesus Christ through our expanded capacity and outreach efforts.
