Last year on the Good Friday Outreach, a young man followed us to the place where we gathered after the evangelism. That day he had heard the words which had drawn him to Christ. Kuldeep, was an immigrant to Mumbai from western India in search for a destiny in his business. On that day he found his eternal destiny in the salvation message of the Cross of Christ. It’s always amazing to see a childlike appetite of a previously religious hindu man after he gets saved and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. You could not have one rap session in the town which he would not attend.
Just a few months later there were some major bomb blasts in the city of Mumbai. One of the blasts happened right at the workplace of Kuldeep where just fifteen minutes earlier he was havin
g tea with a relative. Kuldeep had rushed after the first tea in order to attend the rap, but his friend stayed for the second cup of tea, alas the last one in his life before he died in the blasts. We all worshipped the Lord in the realization of immanence of eternity and grace we have received in salvation.Some months later he disappeared never to meet us again. We could not trace our brother, he is lost. Yet we know he is not lost to God. He got saved. Saved from the blasts, saved from eternal fire, saved from being lost. Christ our Saviour – He saves.

I’LL PAY YOU BACK – Help for those who have lost a child By Thomas Sliva
I’ll pay you back. Predicting how one’s value system will hold up in a storm of life, is almost as impossible as predicting the storm itself. The tests of life reveal the mettle, the guts, the inner strength in which an individual puts forth his best foot. But when the boat starts to rock, the seeming best equipped may go to pieces, grasping at match-sticks that were imagined as beams, discovering a dichotomy between hearts and head by contrast, the least esteemed may handle the same situation with poise and grace. In any case, when the overwhelming scourge comes as a thief to ravage and strip, there is no respect for any man’s personal agility. These unique moments that may occur but once per lifetime, are a reckoning time with God himself. In our fright or guilt or arrogance we may resist Him unknowingly, but we were destined for this day. This critical fork on life’s road is more like a T. A turn to the left or turn to the right can change the rest of my life or even my eternity. This is a short but powerful story of one such pilgrim, who discovered the perfect timing of a personal God to be liberating, but not without a struggle…

Eternity in Their Hearts: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God By Don Richardson / Gospel Light
Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds of Cultures Throughout the WorldHas the God who prepared the gospel for all people groups also prepared all people groups for the gospel? Don Richardson, author of the best-selling book Peace Child, has studied cultures throughout the world and found within hundreds of them startling evidence of belief in the one true God. In Eternity in Their Hearts, Richardson gives fascinating, real-life examples of ways people have exhibited in their histories terms and concepts that have prepared them for the gospel. Read how Pachacuti, the Inca king who founded Machu Picchu, the majestic fortress in Peru, accomplished something far more significant than merely building fortresses, temples or monuments. He sought, reached out and found a God far greater than any popular ‘god’ of his own culture. And there have been others throughout the world, like him, who lived to receive the blessing of the gospel.
Get ready to be amazed at these intriguing examples of how God uses redemptive analogies to bring all men to Himself, bearing out the truth from Ecclesiastes that God “has also set eternity in the hearts of men.”

Peace Child: The Unforgettable Story of Primitive Jungle Treachery in the 20th Century By Don Richardson / Gospel Light
In 1962, Don and Carol Richardson risked their lives to share the gospel with the Sawi people of New Guinea. This is the unforgettable story of living among these headhunters and cannibals who valued treachery through fattening victims with friendship before the slaughter. God gave Don and Carol the key to the Sawi hearts via a redemptive analogy from their own mythology. The “peace child” became the secret to unlocking a value system that existed through generations over centuries, possbily milleniums, of time. This analogy became a stepping-stone by which the gospel came into the Sawi culture and started both a spiritual and social revolution from within. With an epilogue updating how the gospel impacted the Sawi, this missionary classic will insire a new generation of readers to hear this unforgettable story and the lessons it teaches us about communicating with Christ in a meaningful way to those around us.

Your God is Too Small: A Guide for Believers and Skeptics Alike By J.B. Phillips / Touchstone
In Your God Is Too Small,J. B. Phillips explains that the trouble facing many of us today is that we have not found a God big enough for our modern needs. In a world where our experience of life has grown in myriad directions, and our mental horizons have been expanded to the point of bewilderment by world events and scientific discoveries, our ideas of God have remained largely static. It is nearly impossible, Phillips argues, for an adult to worship the conception of God that exists in the mind of a child of Sunday-school age, the “God-in-a-box” notion, limiting God to such inadequate conceptions as “Resident Policeman,” “Grand Old Man,” “Meek-and-Mild,” and “Managing Director.” As a result of these insufficient ideas of God, many people live with an inner dissatisfaction, without any faith at all.Your God Is Too Small explores the ways in which we can find a truly meaningful and constructive God for ourselves, big enough to account for our current experience of life and big enough to command our highest admiration and respect.
“By whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name.” Romans 1:5
Greater Grace World Outreach is a ministry that believes in the eternal purpose of God to glorify Him through making disciples and evangelizing the lost. God has been faithful to give us over 500 churches in more than 60 countries since 1975.
Our vision is to plant churches in every country of the world, along with Bible schools and Christian schools with the purpose of training nationals. Titus 2:11-12 “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.” Please pray for us as we go forward into all the world with the Gospel of grace; Acts 20:24 “But none of these things move me, neither do I count my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry that I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the Gospel of the grace of God.”
Pastor Steven Scibelli Missions Director Greater Grace World Outreach

We have a group of experienced and committed teachers with a thorogh understanding of needs of Children. This group of ladies have decided to start Sunday morning fun filled and deep investment classes for kids below 13 yrs during the Sunday worship service at Meghalaya House, Vashi. All kids are welcome.
Sunday Service at :Meghalaya House, Vashi - 9:15amMissions is the heart of God...Merry Christmas!Transformed lives - in the presence of God with the family of God near the creation of God."I will build My Church.'GGNMCEveryone is Welcome!For all nationalities and backgrounds.
We believe that the premise to truth, knowledge, and wisdom is found in and imparted through the inspired Word of God. The Word communicates the reason for the school’s existence, its organization, direction, content of its curriculum, and its motivation for service.
The Word also communicates that man is made in the image of God for the expressed purpose of knowing and glorifying Him. Man cannot know or honor God because he is a sinner by nature and choice. But God graciously gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to save a lost humanity. Those who respond to His saving grace receive the Holy Spirit who fills, blesses, and illuminates truth to the believer.
One cannot have wisdom apart from knowing God. The inspired Word of God declares Him to be the truth and depositary of all wisdom and knowledge. He is our provision for life and conduct, and He is our Master Teacher. He has gifted and trained teachers to communicate divine viewpoint and its relationship to the natural sciences and one’s self-image. An individual’s success in life is dependent upon a healthy respect for God, receipt of the revelation of His grace, and obedience to His Word. The College and the ministry from which it springs are distinctive in their teaching of the revelation and application of grace.
The choice of curriculum, methods, and materials is based upon biblical principles with the resultant purpose of doing the work of the church. These choices hold in view the appropriateness of subjects, the maturity and readiness of learners, and the kind and extent of expectation. Instructors teach and test to approximate the actual demands and decisions encountered in one’s life and ministry.
Outreach… reaching out to others with the uncompromised purity of the Word of God. We desire to provide the Body here with the opportunity and training to learn how to become effective witnesses for Jesus Christ.
Our desire is that as we grow in Christ we will understand the value of discipleship. As we are being discipled by the Word and our leaders, we go and disciple others.
We provide numerous programs that give the Body the opportunity to grow in this area of their Christianity. We believe that one of the deepest understandings of our relationship with the Holy Spirit is experienced when we are involved in winning souls to Christ. We comprehend the value of Grace and Mercy experientially and not just in conversations.
Some of these opportunities include:
•Weekly Friday Outreach
•Monthly Village Evangelism trips
•Weekly House Bible studies & visits
•And much more
We are eternally grateful for Pastor Carl Stevens who has taught us the value of a soul, and the importance of true discipleship. We have a two fold vision, to lead the body into an increased effectiveness as more people learn to exercise the spiritual capacities, and to become even more effective in reaching the lost here in our “Jerusalem” and there in our “Samaria” and in the uttermost parts of the world.
All are welcome to the FREE movie show in Hindi (with English subtitles) on Friday 29th March at 6:30pm at Meghalaya House, Vashi. The title is “The Story before the Passion of Christ.” Also, “12 Feet Cross Road Show” by GGNMC at Vashi in the afternoon. The movie show is followed by Satsang and Indian worship night from 8:15-9:30pm at the same venue….
Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
When Christ takes something in His hand, it is different!
When He took the mud and spitted and pasted on the eyes of blind man, it was different!
When He took the five breads and two fish, it was different!
When He took the twelve disciples for missions, it was different!
This is what happened when we moved to Navi Mumbai two years ago. It was different! Not because of our talent or place, but we were placed in the hands of Christ. We moved to this satellite city of Mumbai which is 40km away from Mumbai in April, 2010. It has been a great learning and there were many surprises. As Bible college graduates and we moved in with hearts full of divine excitement. Team concept indeed proved to be a little giant. Fellowship around the Word has been key in our Church life. Therefore, even before the church service started on Sundays, we started our Bible College classes. Awesome time of fellowship!
In Colossians 4, Paul mentions seven specific team members by name. Likewise, when he travelled through Turkey and Greece, he picked up disciples who travelled with him and became in some cases pillars of various churches.
On July 18, 2010 we started our first Sunday morning service with 8 people. We heard about “striving to enter into the rest of God”. The same hall which was so big for 8 people on that Sunday, appears so small for the Church today. Today we are having a Bible college mainly in the evening with about 30 people. New people mainly coming from traditional church background are excited about this education and committed to do it. We are having some amazing testimonies from the Bible College. If we carry a spark, we can light a fire. Every believer, wherever he goes he carries the inborn capability of spiritual reproduction. We are enjoying the adventure of God’s Mission here. Our life is not primarily the mission-field or where we are, but rather joys, revelations, power and life of the Word of God. Amen!
Please visit us on Sunday mornings for Spirit-filled worship, prayer and Bible teaching at 9:30am at Vashi. We are amazed at the work of God amongst us and will be blessed to have you. Both English and Hindi speaking people can enjoy.

Praise God for awesome revival and growth as we have just completed the second year in Navi Mumbai
Greetings from the Greater Grace Church in Navi Mumbai. We rejoice at the thought that the plan of God connects you and us as living stones of the house of God. We are blessed to be a part of the same mission as you are – taking the gospel of grace to the land where God has sent us. Adam was charged to be fruitful and multiply, so was Noah, children of Israel, Jews in captivity, and eventually the Church. God’s plan has always been centered around the multiplication of His grace through the length, width, height and depth of love (Ephesians 3:18). Romans 5:17 speaks about the grace that reigns much more through the One Man – Jesus Christ. In missions we see the work of God’s grace touching lives and reigning in the sin laden world. It is not a work of man; it is a mystery of God.
Being sent out by God, out of a local assembly, into the field where God is turning a tiny seed into a fruit bearing plant, experiencing personal fruit of transformed lives and corporate revival of body life, it is a great privilege. In Hebrews 12:18,24, the author contrasts the old economy of the law as Mount Sinai and the economy of grace as Mount Zion. We haven’t come to the mountain that can be touched, yet no one could ever touch it. Rather our faith is such that appears un-touchable and yet we are touched over and over again. The man who tries to conform to some religious works has some things which may seem easy to define, yet impossible to attain. But we have Christ, in whom we fellowship with grace and the mystery of God and we are touched and we touch others with it. We don’t claim to fully understand it, yet we carry it in us. Transformed lives and discipleship of grace are the missionary’s privilege.
We are enjoying the reign of Grace. We sense the shout of “hallelujah’s” in our hearts. Church planting is the mystery of God, a grace adventure and a unique fellowship. It is so rewarding. We continue to experience, the “Lo, I will be with you….” every passing week. God has a series of victories in every steps. Our battles are fought from the place of the finished work victory.
Navi Mumbai is a city of 20 million people, ever growing in its immigrating population and ever adding new signatures of landmarks. We are believing that God wants to use us to have an impact. There are the busy business executives with identity cards hanging around the necks during their luncheons, and also the factory workers coming out of shifts in huge industrial areas, and the pockets of villages with men sitting in traditional white Marathi caps and also young irresponsible ‘taporis’ with hardly any sense of ethics loitering in street-corners. We count it an honour to minister them the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have seen that behind those faces are hidden real stories of sin and failure – of irresponsible men, deceived youngsters, breaking relationships, unquenching religion, irresistible habits, unhealed diseases and many more. We have a mission from God. It is simpler than we could imagine. Bible college, outreaches, rap sessions, prayer, worship – these never get old – these minister to every group of people. God becomes real to some of these people as they watch us do those things by faith as a lifestyle. We don’t understand the economy, but it happens. We are always telling stories – stories of God being real – stories of salvation, bible school, missions, home base, our pastors and missionaries. Some seem to get it – they get saved, or maybe healed. God shows to be real in some of these lives. Grace reigns. We get bolder.
Recently, we met a young man while we were handing out tracts in the streets of Vashi. He got married a year back and two months later lost his wife, mother and father in a car accident. He himself suffered multiple organ failures, but after a brief spell of discouragement he received healings physically and emotionally. This man shared his testimony in the Church. He believes God has given him a new life and he desires to be walking in the perfect will of God in his remaining years. He has enrolled for his first ever Bible school semester just this week. As we heard the story of his faith, we had moist eyes and burning hearts. The grace message is a life transforming message. We let it flow, we sing, “Hallelujah, grace reigns!”
Thank you for praying for us, thank you for being connected, thank you for singing with us. Gob bless!
