Church gathering in the Philippines

"The best option"

TELL Network offers online biblical instruction to people around the world so that they can tell others about Jesus.

As part of that program, WELS Multi-Language Productions (MLP), which oversees the program, partners with WELS sister churches around the world to expand its reach.

Alvien de Guzman (pictured above, front right), pastor at Law and Gospel Lutheran Church, WELS’ sister church in the Philippines, is one of those partners. . . .

“There are many online Christian training programs that are being offered by other churches in the Philippines. I am glad that we’re able to give the people here another option, the best option, that is, since we offer the pure gospel of forgiveness and salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, based on the Scriptures alone,” says de Guzman. “Being a small mission congregation, we can’t possibly do this kind of ministry on our own.”

FIC's Bible-reading plan

Trace God's story of grace in this Bible-reading plan. Participate online and you'll have access to the full Bible passages for each week. Start at any time. All the previous readings are listed at forwardinchrist.net/bible-readings-2021.

Note: Each month includes four weeks of readings. This allows readers to not fall behind if they miss a reading or two because catch-up days are built into each month. If you finish the readings for the month early, you can use Forward in Christ's devotions for a quick daily reading, re-read a favorite portion of Scripture, or spend time meditating on a more challenging portion of Scripture from that month's readings.
