The Supremacy of Christ as He Builds His Church: AHFi’s 3rd Year Anniversary

“I believe in the sovereignty of God over salvation, because I know that the conversion of a man is an absolute impossibility.”

The above statement came from one of the firebrands of sound theology who has worked tirelessly to turn the hearts of true believers back to the purity of biblical teaching, his name is Pastor Paul Washer. This quotation struck to the heart of AHFi and its helm of leadership for it centers on a forgotten concept in modern day Christianity; the absolute sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ who due to unsound doctrine has been viewed only as a savior but not as Lord. The disease of modern day Christianity is the idolatry of its decisionism. The heretical view of being saved by our acceptance of Jesus Christ instead of focusing on the supremacy of God who called unto the elect to salvation not by some heartfelt prayer no matter how sincere but by the true conversion of ones heart through the power of the Holy Spirit thus turning a person from sin, calling him or her to repentance as they walk in the newness of life in Christ Jesus.

Anyone can plant a church or build up a bible study, as anyone could take on the title of pastor by simply enrolling in various seminaries; but a true church is not built by human hands nor is the calling of Pastor set to a person by simply getting a degree in theology. To plant a true church requires true conversion. To become a true pastor calls for true conversion. Standing up in ministry takes more than just reading a few books, sounding knowledgeable in debates and having a tenure of 30 years or more in the christian faith. That does not cut it; what matters is true conversion, standing up for what is right; suffering for the truth and living solely for Christ’s lordship.

This is not to state that upon accomplishing such requirements, planting a church or heeding the call to Pastorship becomes easy; for if your faith is true- ministry is never easy but the present testings and tribulations causes us to develop endurance; and because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit no matter the storm one faces; there is irrevocable joy to press on for we do this not for ourselves, nor for ego sake; we plant, we build, we serve to proclaim the supremacy of Christ; to confess His lordship and in that. We are much satisfied for Christ is glorified in our victory or in our suffering, in our living or in our dying.

It was a wonderful day last October 20, 2013 when such a church who stood its ground and proclaimed the lordship of Christ in the heart of Quezon city celebrated its 3rd year anniversary. Abundant Harvest Fellowship International, a missionary church from Crescent city, Florida which opened its doors in the Philippines on October 10, 2010.

Pastor Lyle L.A. Lopez, a missionary from Florida and the senior pastor of AHFi recounts the journey each of the faithful saints have treaded. Each hardship they faced together to reach this 3rd year milestone.

“AHFi started with a vision, to plant a church that stood solely to uphold the truth of the gospel, in a world filled with misconstrued idealism and pseudo Christianity; our prayer was simple: plant Your church our King; draw true believers to this place, fill us with Your anointing and may we please you. I still remember the clattering of benches in SNR Fort Bonifacio where a handful of believers with my family made a covenant to God to plant A church and obey Him completely. Like many beginnings, everything started out well- we rented a space in Back to the Bible where we held Sunday service thus impacting the community. Trouble began to brew when our ministry faced oppression from the said christian organization which threw us out on the street. I can’t tell you how painful it was to see the state of christianity in the Philippines, where the vision is to compete instead of to complete. We tried to find a space to worship, our outcry to God was simple- Lord all we want is to worship you; please lead us to Your place that we may glorify You even in this trial.”

Pastor Lyle and his family searched through Quezon City yet could not find a space due to many business owners who disdained the idealism of being born-again. It was then that God granted them the wisdom and discernment to plant the church in his family’s ancestral home. After a few days of preparation, AHF reopened its doors in Dalisay Ext. West Triangle homes.


“The church bloomed in the Place, God is good and with that God began several ministries under AHF such as Harvest Groups; the Wednesday night service at AHFi, the youth ministry called the Armor Bearers, the Men and Women’s ministry and the Helps Initiative. Soon we saw members flock in our door, we never stood for big churches since our desire is to plant a small church with several campuses since the Pastor should know his congregants by name. The member should not be just a face in the crowd but a person whom the Pastor encourages, prays for and rebukes if need be.”

Pastor Lyle being a former child star and celebrity was constantly featured by different television shows and networks. His story was what they wanted; what he gave them was something else- not his story but God’s great work in his life.

“Glory to God, once the church focuses on a persona; it is not a church anymore but a social gathering of sorts with Christ as a vague footnote. That is something we would not allow, it should always be less of us and more of Him.”

In the midst of joy came trials pressed on by members of the flock who viewed God as an atm machine, or genie instead of Lord. There was no true conversion in their hearts but a vague belief that by sincerity; they were saved.

“When you hear of a testimony of change, such joy fills your heart- sadly not all who profess change actually changes. Not all who call themselves believers are actually believers. It boils down to the evidences of their faith. My family, our leadership and myself devoted every waking moment and at times even in late nights to early mornings to resolve personal issues, try to reason with them and pray for them. Sadly, many do not know how to respond to kindness. We opened our home to them but they worked to destroy what God has planted here. I pity them since there was no true conversion in them, they just went through the motion. Yes they served, they prayed and cried on the altar; but there was no change in their lives.”

Some of the former members turned to direct rebellion to a point of even working to destroy the current partnerships that AHFi had with an outreach church in the provinces who benefited greatly from AHF’s projects, activities and support.

“It was a tough time, we felt alone- my mother who is truly focused in God cried out and said; even if the only ones to remain are the 4 of us; we would press on with the work God entrusted. It is painful to see God’s truth become maligned by wolves in sheep’s clothing but at the end of the day; all you can do is trust in the Lord and be still in His truth.”

Many who formed the rebellion stood for easy believism; a heretical standpoint that licenses christians to sin since when sin abounds, grace abounds even more. They stood for the Once saved always Saved doctrine that promoted the viewpoint that regardless if you continue sinning; you were saved. Pastor Lyle who devoted 2 years in preaching sound doctrine was surprised to hear such a standpoint. His father, Bro. Rommel Villarico who stood as the church’s elder for doctrinal studies was appalled upon learning of the idealism that grace is unlimited for those who practice unlimited sinning. The rebellion worsened when the people who incited such a thing professed that lordship salvation is a cult like idealism.

“These people readily view Christ as savior but never as Lord; for if they did- their actions would have been to edify the brethren, to strengthen the church of Christ not tear it down because of egotism and pride. I do not despise or hate the, I pity them for they chose the broad road instead of treading the narrow path; thus to work your salvation with fear and trembling.”

In this difficult time, Pastor Lyle, His family, Youth Pastor Akeem Lumongsod and a handful of true believers stood in prayer and pressed on the work God entrusted. What happened next was the New Beginning God purposed in the opening of the Napindan Campus of AHF in Taguig. The campus started out as a youth outreach under the headship of Bro. Mario and Sis. Aleta Manosca. Their desire was to impact the youths in their neighborhood who has regressed to profanity, stealing and disobedience. Pastor Akeem Lumongsod heeded the call to come each Friday to share the word of God. What began as an outreach became the main branch for the Youth Ministry. Pastor Lyle Lopez then held core bible studies after the youth service. AHFi who was known for their wonderful activities and events took a step back from all that and focused on one simple thing: to share God’s word, impact lives and put love in action.

God’s hand moved for the Saints of AHFi who began Sunday Services in Napindan. They also held monthly outreaches to Gawad Kalingga, a government housing facility for the impoverished citizens of the Philippines. The vision came to them to plant a campus in Napindan with the creation of the Upper Room, a sanctuary overlooking The community where the youth services would be held and Sunday services would be accomplished.


“Hallelujah to God’s great faithfulness, God has planted through us the upper room situated in Napindan Taguig, a newly constructed house of worship. All glory to Him!”

God’s goodness truly shown, what the enemy meant for evil; God has turned for good. He sifted through the field of AHF and purged the Tares that inhabited alongside the wheat. He quelled the weeds and replaced them with generation of believers who truly sought to glorify God.

“That is why the 3rd year of AHFi means so much to us who remain; it signifies the end of an age of strife, disobedience and rebellion and signals the beginning of an era of complete obedience and truth. This is not because of a program we have set or some strategy to tie the people to this church; no- it is simply because all of us proclaim Christ’s Lordship. No one can truly proclaim Christ’s Lordship if the Holy Spirit does not dwell in them; praise God that He has sent forth the Holy Spirit in our midst and filled all of us with such an anointing to cleave to scripture thus proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ by the indwelling of God’s Holy Spirit.”

1 Corinthians 12:3 “Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking in the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus is accursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except in the Holy Spirit.”

“We stand by the truth that we are slaves to Christ’s righteousness thus we will not do anything that goes against His will. This is an age of the renewal of our covenant to proclaim Christ’s lordship in our lives no matter the cost. We will follow, we will obey and regardless of the dry ground we tread upon, despite the birds that might devour the seed we have been called to plant; we will continue sowing not for us, nor for some misplaced idea of legacy- all this, our lives, our everything is to glorify our King!”

AHFi, now in its 4th upcoming year stands as a beacon of God truth in the heart of the Philippines as each Pastor, leader and teacher that has been called to service in this ministry stands to proclaim the truth of God’s goodness one verse at a time by the power of the Holy Spirit thus confessing and professing Christ in their walk moment by moment. Glory to God for His great faithfulness that shines in the church He planted.

Glory to God, AHFi Celebrates 3 Years of God’s Great Faithfulness

Lamentation 3:22-26“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,“therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”

Praise God for His Great Faithfulness as we celebrate the 3rd Year Anniversary of Abundant Harvest Fellowship International- Truly God is good as He empowered us to press on as we proclaim Christ’s Lordship in our lives and shine His truth in each aspect of our existence. Glory to the King of Kings!

On Sunday, October 20, 2013 The Saints of AHFi will stand to celebrate God’s goodness by pressing on with the mission set forth in the hearts of the planters and our dear pastor which is found in Luke 1:17 which states – “…to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared.” This day we celebrate God goodness as we renew our covenant: to give our heart and soul to Christ in submissive salvation, yielding all things under the power of the Spirit of God as we progressively proclaim His Lordship in each aspect of our existence.

Letter From The Senior Pastor: Abundant Harvest Missions

Screen Shot 2013-09-19 at 1.57.45 PM
Good Day Dear Saints,

Peace be with you, Truly God is good as we see the fruition of our mission work at Napindan, Taguig . Each 4th Friday of the month, our dear youth ministry The Armor Bearers hold a feeding program and sharing of good news at the local Gawad Kalinga that we may shine God’s light not only by the preaching of His word but by feeding and caring for the least of our brethren.

Matthew 25:40 states – “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me”

This is possible by the grace of God and the strong passion for the gospel that we see in the saints of AHFi. Though we are a small church; the arm of God through our missions has extended through to impact lives and bless others. I’ve witnessed my dear brethren cook and prepare wonderful dishes to bless the least of our brethren; more so the fire to share the gospel is burning without fail by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Many residents of Gawad Kalinga are but simple people who due to their impoverished state and circumstance have fallen out through the journey of life. Many in their past lives have resorted to crime, and activities that are less savory in nature. Upon given a second chance, these people have shown a desire to renew their ways with resilience to begin well. Our desire is not just to see a change that might one day waver; our desire is to see them stand as New Creations not by might nor power but by the Spirit of God. Thus the mission work is crucial in this part of the Philippines.

Romans 10:13-15 “For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

Many missionaries would go to the ends of the earth to share the truth of God’s word and His kindness but most of the time we overlook the specific need of missions in our own backyard, in our own community, in the lives of our family, friends and neighbors. Thus we in AHF international would like to strengthen another wing of the ministry God has entrusted us called: Abundant Harvest Missions.

The primary focus of this organization is to strengthen the body of Christ to impact lives in their own country, in their own communities.

James 2:14-18 “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”

The work to heal, to bless and to impact has already began a few months back – but to formally launch this God focused endeavor; we would like to launch a Medical Mission, Feeding Program and Sharing the Gospel on November 15, 2013 which will be held in the Gawad Kalinga in Napindan, Taguig.

Isaiah 58:10“If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.”

    AHF International “New Beginning”

    In the 3rd Year of Abundant Harvest Fellowship International, we glorify God as He finally closes a chapter in ministry as He unveils something new. There is a great vision that has been entrusted to Pastor Lyle Lopez and Bishop Waid Hobbs which by the grace of God, they have been true to;all the more in this new generation.

    AHF Backdrop Napindan 2013

    As this new dawn begins, we are standing firm as New Creations; as we are sealed by grace thus upholding one solid truth. This great vision is to bring the lost to Christ, this is the cause; not just to lead them in a simple prayer that many would state works due to sincerity; but to truly lead each person to Christ; being saved by grace through faith- confessing that He is Savior and Lord each day, not thinking that grace is a license to continue in sin but to answer grace by repenting and confessing the Lordship of Christ in our lives each day; to the day of Glory!

    Last Sunday, June 10, 2013 – Pastor Lyle Lopez and the dear brethren of the AHF Family stood by the vision that God has placed in their hearts. God has called each one of them to go forth and spread the gospel; and after a months of continues sharing, going house to house and standing firm to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all; the vision for the church came.

    1000898_10151770693471874_1440073810_n

    “Many of our third generation Armor Bearer youths are situated in Napindan, Taguig where we usually hold youth service in the house of Bro. Mario and Sis. Aleta Manosca each friday. Sadly only a few can make it to Quezon City for Sunday service. It also came to our attention that many of the parents of our dear youths desire to come to know Christ and have a personal relationship with Him- thus after much prayer; God counsel and Biblical discernment we have decided to begin an AHF Campus in Napindan Taguig.” Pastor Lyle Lopez says.

    “The biggest blessing and confirmation we saw was when we asked a local church if we can hold services in their church building during the afternoon; glory to God they obliged- after that we saw the mighty work of the Holy Spirit move in that place as we work together with the churches in the vicinity to impact lives and make a difference.” Pastor Lyle Lopez who have stood at the helm of Abundant Harvest Fellowship International since 2010 states that the heart of the church is complete christian union; since we stand not to compete but to complete.

    Now, youths, men and women; whole families are impacted by the great work of God in Abundant Harvest Fellowship International- and this is the just the first fruits of the labor God entrusted. The harvest has come, the time of grace is now- thus Pastor Lyle Lopez and AHF International stands to draw more people to Jesus Christ.

    Now the question goes to you; do you have a heart for church union? Do you have a desire to impact lives and make a difference? Are you ready to be a light to all; to share the PURE, TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ and win souls for the King?

    If so, then stand with us as we gather for the great harvest that God has purposed us to labor in. Shine with us, Partner with us and Pray with us as we shine love in all we do; winning souls for the King of Kings!

    28 Years of God’s amazing faithfulness; God’s best is yet to come

    28years.023

    One day as I was driving home, I came upon a particular podcast by Pastor John Piper as he exhorted each minister to press on with the good work God entrusted to us all despite the difficulties we often face. This came as an encouraging call to my heart as he implored those who serve the Lord faithfully to press on despite the set backs, despite the pain; despite all hardships. Now if I can sum up the whole message- there was a resounding promise that Pastor John shared that encouraged me- “the best is yet to come.”

    Such a profound promise and one that I stand to lay hold of in my 28th year of life; the best is yet to come. Now I know what that sounds like; it resounds as a fantasy that we tell ourselves when all seems lost. To a realist, most of what I would say would seem laughable but to those who know of the faith I lay hold off, I believe that it would stand As a wonderful reminder that all the good you’ve done was not laid to waste. That God sees your hurt, your pain, the love you exuded and the sacrifices you have experienced and He takes all of that into account as you fix your eyes on Him. It might be that no one appreciates the good you do; but God sees and you may not be able to understand the seed you have sown in the lives of all you have touched by God’s immeasurable grace that empowers you to do every good work; but be strong and take courage. Though our lives are poured as an offering to sate the thirst of men for the truth, do not be weakened.

    2 Corinthians 4:7-10 – “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.”

    Consider it pure joy brethren when afflictions come, when troubles arise- since in our weakness- God’s power is seen. Though we are persecuted, cursed, torn down as all the good we’ve done is forgotten- be of good cheer and press on for we are following in the footsteps of Christ who despite the good He shined was beaten down; carrying the weight of the cross and bearing our sins as His blood was poured in order to appease the wrath of God as we are given a hope and a future; if we abide in Him. We ourselves are earthen vessels whose use is not on our rough, worn exterior but the truth that is embedded in our hearts as Christ’s life exudes in our bodies. For the pain we face does not compare the eternal weight of glory we will witness in the day of glory; thus as I exhort myself to press on, I call to you dear saint to do so as well.

    2 Corinthians 4:16-17 – “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison,”

    Unlike many of my previous letters of thanks, I deemed it necessary to write this letter in the hope that those who peruse will be encouraged by God’s great grace and faithfulness in my life. I have seen my self in the spotlight as an actor/singer; I have stood in the background as an unsung hero who does the nitty gritty work backstage; in this life I have been blessed to see the very best of people and sadly the very worst; and then God called me to His service with a simple call – to love unconditionally and press on to win the lost back to God. Initially it seemed simple, yet as years progressed; I realized the difficulty of this path. The sadness and much brokenness of Spirit but amidst the pain; there is unimaginable joy and hope. Each day I face in ministry; God has purposed that I experience; peace and fulfillment. I can’t express the extreme joy of seeing souls won to Christ; when change is not some partial reflection of emotion and truly a 180 degree turnaround. When repentance is our response to grace and as the response of our youths to the gospel is not a continues want for activities but a desire to evangelize and share the good news of God’s grace and the proper response to His kindness.

    I am truly blessed and joyful as I celebrated 28 years of God’s great faithfulness; as such I celebrated the eve of my birthday proclaiming the word of God in the streets of Napindan Taguig as I marched with the youths to draw many to Christ. It was a fruitful day as we held our live event for the month of May entitled: “Sharing the Good News and Taho.”

    We were met with many who desired to know Christ as we blessed them with Taho in abundance. As the sun started to set; I was able to inspect the docks where some of our youth who travel by boat make land. I was also able to see the beauty of the fields in Napindan and the colorful hues that the sun makes as it sets on the horizon.

    What I did not expect was that after my message on loyalty to God and His redemption came the most heart warming surprise by our beloved youths. First came a poem, a dance number, and a giant card of gratefulness, blessings and prayers.

    Afterward was a scrumptious feast that my family and dear brethren in the church lovingly bestowed. What a blessed day and a purposeful one; God in every sense revived me as a particular psalm came to heart:

    Psalm 71:20 – “You who have made me see many troubles and calamities will revive me again.”

    So if I have to give a conclusion to what I have seen in my 28 years of life, it would be this; it does not matter if all the good you do is forgotten, it doesn’t matter if life seems unfair, if the bonds you once held dear is broken; you are not called to cry out injustice or fill your heart with resentment or hate. This life is much more than triumphs and defeat, joy and sorrow. This life’s great purpose is to please God and to make much of Him; not being made much of. Don’t feed your ego with you accomplishments or by the goodness you once exuded. Don’t do good for approval or for a pat in the back; do good because God commands us to do so and take heart. Things may not seem well now but be strong and take courage for God’s best is yet to come.

    Isaiah 40:30-31 – “Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”

    Glory to God, thank You Father for another year to serve You and Make much of You My King!

    Standing Up For Loyalty: Are You Loyal to God and His Redemption?

    942716_665465923468718_1012672904_n

    Loyal: Faithful to lawful authority; faithful and true, as to faithful to a king or to whom one is subject; unswerving in allegiance. Being true to any person or persons to whom one owes fidelity, especially as a wife to her husband, lovers to each other, and friend to friend; constant; faithful to a cause or a principle.

    Are you loyal? Is God the authority in your life? Are you faithful and true to Him? Are you faithful, even as a servant unto their King, pledging to honor that loyalty, even with their own life? Is your allegiance only to God?

    Today, Pastor Lyle Lopez will continue our series entitled: “Standing Up For Loyalty” at the Armor Bearers Youth Service @ Napindan Taguig as he shares his message entitled: Are You Loyal To God and His Redemption? This a very important question to answer, and one that has much stock in our walk. How true are we to God? Do we break our oaths? Do we tell God where we want to serve, how we want to serve instead of asking Him- “What service can I do for you Lord?” How true is our salvation? Do we think that regardless of what we do; no matter how wicked we live, because of a simple prayer we are already saved?, how our Christianity? does it stand for truth or licentiousness, does the grace of God truly move us and empower us to stand pleasing and ever repentant to God?

    2 Chronicles 16:9 – “For the eyes of the LORD are looking and seeking throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are loyal and fully committed to him.”

    Friends, God is seeking for true worshipers, those who will worship Him in Spirit and in truth; question is- are we one of the few who harken to His call? Glory to God for His great faithfulness; His goodness never cease; it is steadfast and long suffering. So come and join us today as we impact our youth, changed lives, make a difference and stand together in unity as we intentionally worship our King in Spirit and in Truth. Praise the Lord!

    Live Event: “Sharing The Good News & Taho”

    Abundant Harvest Fellowship Philippines will be hosting a live event later today @ 3:30 PM Entitled: “Sharing The Good News & Taho” @ Napindan, Taguig City; we are standing firm to bless, encourage, edify and bestow the good news to all who will hear as we move to enlighten those who will harken into repentance as we answer the great gift of grace by following Jesus, turning from sin and living up to who we are in Christ; New Creations through Him who strengthens us. We are also blessing all who would harken with taho, a hot flavorful comfort food that is known well among the locals as a treat. It is the heart of this ministry to truly shine God’s light in the community, not just pretending to impact but truly making a difference. We are blessed by our youths and dear members who devote their time to proclaim the gospel, going offline completely from the things of this world and being connected to the great call God has set in our lives.

    If you are in the neighborhood- you most welcome to join us; and we hope that you may stand in prayer for us as we preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all. Thank you so much and have a blessed day!

    May 2013: Most Valuable Sharers and The Sharer of the Month

    At the Youth Ministry of Abundant Harvest Fellowship Philippines called the Armor Bearers, we stand to encourage our youths to go out and share the Good News that the Kingdom of God may be preached as we proclaim His steadfast love, His great faithfulness, His immeasurable grace and the singular response which is complete repentance as we stand to please our King. We are blessed to see our dear third generation Armor Bearers, the best; God focused generation as they stand to serve, not to be served. In an address last April 26, Pastor Lyle Lopez challenged every Armor Bearer to proclaim the gospel and stand up to draw people to become New Creations through Jesus Christ, not by just praying a simple prayer but by supernaturally being transformed in mind, heart and spirit by the grace of God. Glory to God as we have seen our youths work tirelessly to proclaim the good news, setting more time in preaching the word of God than pursuing meaningless exploits. As the month of May comes to a close, we would like to share with you the tally for the Most Valuable Sharers and the Sharer of the Month as we ask for your prayers and support that we may continue to shine God’s light to all, In Jesus Name Amen!
