What is the importance of Christian baptism?

Christian baptism is one of two ordinances that Jesus instituted for the church. Just before His ascension, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:19–20). These instructions specify that the church is responsible to teach Jesus’ word, make disciples, and baptize those disciples. These things are to be done everywhere (“all nations”) until “the very end of the age.” So, if for no other reason, baptism has importance because Jesus commanded it.

Baptism was practiced before the founding of the church. The Jews of ancient times would baptize proselytes to signify the converts’ “cleansed” nature. John the Baptist used baptism to prepare the way of the Lord, requiring everyone, not just Gentiles, to be baptized because everyone needs repentance. However, John’s baptism, signifying repentance, is not the same as Christian baptism, as seen in Acts 18:24–26 and 19:1–7. Christian baptism has a deeper significance.

What is Christian revival?

Revival refers to a spiritual reawakening from a state of dormancy or stagnation in the life of a believer. It encompasses the resurfacing of a love for God, an appreciation of God’s holiness, a passion for His Word and His church, a convicting awareness of personal and corporate sin, a spirit of humility, and a desire for repentance and growth in righteousness. Revival invigorates and sometimes deepens a believer’s faith, opening his or her eyes to the truth in a fresh, new way. It generally involves the connotation of a fresh start with a clean slate, marking a new beginning of a life lived in obedience to God. Revival breaks the charm and power of the world, which blinds the eyes of men, and generates both the will and power to live in the world but not of the world.

In the USA, the first revival, also called the First Great Awakening, produced an upsurge of devotion among Protestants in the 1730s and 1740s, carving a permanent mark on American religion. It resulted from authoritative preaching that deeply moved the church members with a convicting awareness of personal guilt and the awesome nature of salvation through Christ. Breaking away from dry ritual and rote ceremony, the Great Awakening made Christianity intensely personal to the average person, as it should be, by creating a deep emotional need for relationship with Christ.

What is Lent and why does it last forty days?

Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means “spring.” The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry.

Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. It is a time of self-examination and reflection. In the early church, Lent was a time to prepare new converts for baptism. Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God, often choosing to give up something or to volunteer and give of themselves for others.

Sundays in Lent are not counted in the forty days because each Sunday represents a “mini-Easter” and the reverent spirit of Lent is tempered with joyful anticipation of the Resurrection.

Christmas Sermons

What is the true meaning of Christmas?

The true meaning of Christmas is love. John 3:16-17 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” The true meaning of Christmas is the celebration of this incredible act of love.

The real Christmas story is the story of God’s becoming a human being in the Person of Jesus Christ. Why did God do such a thing? Because He loves us! Why was Christmas necessary? Because we needed a Savior! Why does God love us so much? Because He is love itself (1 John 4:8). Why do we celebrate Christmas each year? Out of gratitude for what God did for us, we remember His birth by giving each other gifts, worshipping Him, and being especially conscious of the poor and less fortunate.

Brother Samuel Patta

REV.DR. SAMUEL PATTA

Pastor Samuel Rajkumar Patta is a powerful, prophetic minister of the Word of God. As a young man he was radically born again and filled with the Spirit, and ever since the prophetic gifts have also been evident in his life. Despite being reluctant in the area of public speaking as a child, God has raised up Pastor Patta to be a strong voice, gifted and anointed to preach the Word of God with “signs following.”

One of the major foundations of Pastor Patta’s ministry and life is strong confidence, trust, and faith in the Word of God. After being amazingly healed of a severe asthmatic condition, his faith in God’s Word to heal all sickness and disease became a strong core belief. This has been a driving force in both his life and ministry and God has honored his faith with great increase. Bringing a culture of love, grace, faith and kingdom dominion, all are impacted by the words of this man of God, as he preaches with boldness and authority.

Planting a church in 1984, Pastor Patta began to travel, first to New Zealand and then the U.S. It was here in the U.S, he received the revelation that, through faith, God wants to bless, increase, and bring prosperity in every area of life through the promises of His Word. This life changing truth has greatly impacted Pastor Patta, The King’s Temple Church and many others as a result. In the year 2004, Pastor Patta returned to Hyderabad to help rebuild, restore and regroup the church, which had dwindled in numbers to just eighty people. God was not finished with the church; this was the dawn of a new era and a season of restoration.

The King’s Temple was re-launched in March of 2004.Since that time, The King’s Temple has grown drastically and now numbers over 7,000 members, with testimonies being shared weekly of God’s healing power, provision, restoration, and financial blessing.
