The Mongol, Genghis Khan, conquered the largest contiguous land empire in history.  It stretched from the Pacific to the Mediterranean.  His grandson, Kublai Khan, was visited by Marco Polo’s dad and uncle.  The Khan told them he wanted the Pope to send 100 missionaries who could teach him the ways of Christianity and Western science.  When the Polos got back to Europe, they discovered that the Pope had died.  The new one, Gregory X would send only two Dominicans.  They traveled with the two Polos and the young Marco.  When they got to the Eastern Mediterranean, the Dominicans fled.  The three Polos pressed on, however.  Kublai was so impressed with Marco that he made him an official in the empire.  Marco ended up writing memoirs that changed the course of history.  But think how different the world might have been if the Pope had sent 100 missionaries who could have brought the Mongolians to Jesus!  The Mongols were the most dreaded warriors in the world!  All of Asia could’ve come to know the love of Christ if those missionaries had been sent!  Similarly, we miss opportunities to tell people about Christ’s love for us.  Our negligence impacts eternity!

Sunday I’m preaching on “Have a Fresh Witness,” from Psalm 40:1-10.  We’ll talk about “Wait for God,” verses 1-2; “Have New Praise,” verses 3-8; and “Speak of God’s Faithfulness,” verses 9-10.  David was a powerful witness for God as he publicly praised God and let the nations know of God’s greatness.  We can likewise praise God with fresh vigor, and give a fresh witness of how wonderful God is to us.  Like David, we go through hard times, but that can be a springboard into deeper praise (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).

Don’t forget that January 29, at 9:30 we’ll have a class on “How to Witness to People of Other Faiths.”  We’ll help you keep your witness fresh!  (This class won’t be livestreamed or recorded.)

Life Group (Small Group Bible Studies)

El Camino Baptist Church
Life Group Bible Study
Mission and Vision

Our vision at El Camino Baptist Church is to help our people become true disciples of Christ in the simplest way possible by helping them Love, Grow, and Serve.


Love – Love God, neighbor, and the un-reached world


Grow – in likeness of Christ through the fellowship of the church


Serve – Being affirmed in their gifts and call, members take on opportunities to serve on ministry teams, our community, and serve local and foreign missions


Generosity runs throughout these as a virtue to endorse and give the church its mission.


Our Life Group Bible Study Ministry fits into the second of those components, Grow. We need to be immersed in the truth and held accountable for growing by God’s people in fellowship with one another in a weekly Life Group Bible Study.


As the members of our Life Group Bible Studies grow, we will grow in the other two areas , Loving God, our neighbors, and the unreached world, and Serving in ministry at El Camino Baptist Church, our community, and  missions.


If you would like to host or facilitate a Life Group, please contact our Life Group Director, Carl Turner by email, carl@elcaminobaptist.org, calling the church office, (916) 488-1522, or click here to complete the Life Group Interest Form.
