Dr AR Bernard is the founder of Christian Cultural Centre, a 32,000-strong church in Brooklyn, New York. He is also aid to Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, and sits on the NYC Economic Development Corporation Board.
Dr Bernard preached in two sessions in Heart of God (HOG) church, located at Singapore Post Centre, on Friday, 10 July and on Sunday, 12 July. It was described as a history-defining weekend for the church. From infancy to adolescence, HOG has been built on Dr Bernard’s teachings and values, which have, over time, become the core values taught in Heart of God church.
Dr Bernard delivered a non-watered down message on Hypostatic and Anthropological Hypostatic Union — about how Jesus Christ was one with man, understanding how man feels, thinks and goes through in life; He preached about how Christians must now have a union with God, understanding His heart and His will. Dr Bernard also shared about the value of the invisible work that goes into building a church; behind-the-scenes hardship, sacrifice, and faith that went into building his church from just four people to one which now stands at 32 000 in membership.
Ong Zhiyi, a youth in HOG, described the sessions as “mind-blowing” and thought provoking. “(I) learned that life is all about doing the invisible. We may not see it initially, but at the end, what we sow, we will surely reap.”
