The Season of Pentecost
Pentecost is the longest season of the Church Year. It is the great festival that commemorates the birth of the Christian church by the power of the Holy Spirit. In the old or ‘Koine’ Greek, Pentecost refers to the "fiftieth day" and is celebrated fifty days after Easter.
Ten days after Jesus ascended into heaven, the twelve apostles, Jesus' mother and family, and many other of His disciples gathered jointly in Jerusalem for the Jewish harvest festival that was celebrated on the fiftieth day of Passover. While they were indoors praying, there was a sound like that of a rushing wind filled the house and tongues of fire descended and rested over each of their heads. This was the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on human flesh promised by God through the prophet Joel (Joel 2:28-29). The disciples were suddenly empowered to proclaim the gospel of the risen Christ. They went out into the streets of Jerusalem and began preaching to the crowds gathered for the festival. Not only did the disciples preach with boldness and vigor, but by a miracle of the Holy Spirit they spoke in the native languages of the people present, many who had come from all corners of the Roman Empire. This created a sensation. The apostle Peter seized the moment and addressed the crowd, preaching to them about Jesus' death and resurrection for the forgiveness of sins. The result was that about three thousand converts were baptized that day. (You can read the Biblical account of Pentecost in Acts 2:1-41).
This website serves as a home base for our pastors serving the bush communities and bush churches throughout North America including the Alaska, the Yukon and Northwest Territories of Canada, Arizona and Old Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. This site also serves as a communication hub for these ministries.
All of our pastors are native to the areas of service and are in agreement that our primary function is to bring to those areas of the world the Gospels. We all agree that our mission is only to bring the gospels to those who want and need them, not to bring any change to their culture or politics.
The Lutheran Churches Of Calvary Grace (LCCG) can provide a spiritual covering for those struggling in the ministry without support, offer appropriate credentials and the opportunity for affiliation with others who share a like faith and calling. We serve those who are called by the Lord to serve His people and to take the gospels where they do not now exist. Moreover, we are a mission establishing agency and a Lutheran ecclesiastical endorsing agency.
Our credentials are recognized by federal and state governments as well as the Veterans Affairs, federal and state prison systems, hospitals and hospices. Our ministry-related services are practical and we often assist our members in areas where they cannot easily provide for themselves.
LCCG is also in association with the Association of International Mission Services (AIMS).
