As you perhaps know by now, the Parkview Baptist congregation issued a call for me to serve as the Interim Pastor beginning September 15, 2019. I sense that it is God’s will that I accept that call. I look forward to serving alongside each of you as we seek to strengthen His people and to reach out to the lost.
I am aware of the disappointments you have had in recent months. More importantly, God is aware of your situation. I can say with assurance that because of His foreknowledge, He knew long before you did what was going to develop. Thus, He was already prepared to meet your needs. “Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
When I had the privilege to serve for 11 months as your Interim Pastor, I found you to be a loving and spiritually gifted congregation. I am confident that that has not changed. Some of you may have become discouraged and/or disillusioned, but God will not fail you. “Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.’ Psalm 30:5.
“For this reason, I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you…Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you – guard it with the Holy Spirit who lives in us.” II Timothy 1:6, 13
I look forward to worshiping with you, and covet your prayers as I seek to prepare and present God’s message.
In Christ’s Name,
Fred Bueto, Interim Pastor
