English speaking churches in Paris

There are several really good English speaking churches in Paris.

The first one to mention is The American Church in Paris at 65 Quai d'Orsay in the 7th. This was the first American church established on foreign soil. Begun in 1814, it was officially chartered and the first sanctuary built in 1857. From the beginning, the American Church has been an interdenominational fellowship, theologically situated in the historic Christian tradition as symbolized by the Apostles' Creed. It serves not only the American expatriate community, but also many internationals seeking an English language service.

There is also The American Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Paris, which offers services at 9 and 11 with a Sunday School at 10:45. The mission statement of the American Cathedral describes their focus: "The mission of the American Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Paris is to share the good news of God in Christ by worship, word and example, as a parish church in the city of Paris and as a cathedral in Europe, living our faith and serving the common good, inspired by our American, Episcopal, and Anglican heritage and open to the cultures, languages and faiths that surround us. We pursue this mission through prayer, observance of the sacraments, fellowship,
education, stewardship, and outreach to our community and the world beyond."

The church my family and I attended was Trinity International Church of Paris, which is pictured above. This church draws not only from the American expatriate community, but also from the wide variety of internationals in Paris who seek an English language service. There are also many students who are studying in Paris who attend the services, leading to a very upbeat and lively worship experience.

Kitchen cabinets are something you use every day, yet you probably never take the time to appreciate them. They seem simple enough, but there is actually more than plenty involved behind the scenes. There are many things to consider regarding kitchen cabinet refacing, cabinets materials, finishes, door designs, and even information on hardware.

I visited the American Church often, mainly for the 12-step meetings in which I participated for a number of years. My actual church home was St Michael's Anglican church which at that time (late 80s) was very conservative.

Our true God is revealed
This is the new thing on the earth Jer 31:22. The woman of Rev 12 is now here, she is the prophet that God raised up of her brethren Rev 3:14-22, Isa 66:7-8 she is like unto Moses Num 12:3 she has delivered Rev 12:5 the true word John 1:1, Luke 8:11 to the whole world Matt 24:14 from the wilderness for 1260 days Rev 12:6 boldly as Elijah Mal 4:5-6, and as Moses Acts 3:21-23 to turn the hearts of the fathers to all the children of God Luke 1:17. She is the reason that Moses, Elijah and Jesus were witnessed together Matt 17:3. She alone is preparing a people in the true testimony of Christ Rev 12:17 for his return.
God our true Father will not put any child of his into a hell fire as a second death or an eternal torture no matter what their sins, whether they repent or not in this life. That thought has never entered the heart or mind of God to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5, Heb 13:8.
NOTHING in this world is worse for a self-professed believer in the one true God, than to DOUBT his eternal power Matt 12:31 and will Luke 1:37, Matt 18:14 to SAVE 1 John 2:25, 1 John 2:2 EVERY CHILD John 12:32, Romans 14:11, 1 John 1:9 that HE created to hate him Rom 8:7, Heb 12:8 to learn the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22, Ps 82:6, Isa 45:7 for their eternal placement Ezek 37:26, on the New Earth or on a New Planet Matt 8:12 in the New Heavens Rev 21 each in their own order 1 Cor 15:23 according to their own works Rev 20:12-13, Matt 25:40 of how they have treated their neighbor as themselves Matt 22:39.
Prove your love for God 1 John 4:20. Every child of God will be an immortal Ezek 36:26 at their resurrection Matt 22:29-30, Rev 20:5, Jer 31:34, Heb 2:15 some will be placed far from the new earth Matt 25:30.
The good news of the true coming kingdom of God is here. Anyone doubting the power of God are without excuse Rom 1:20, Matt 12:31. Turn to the true God 1 John 4:8 and all his children Matt 7:21, Matt 12:50.
Satan has deceived the whole world Rev 12:9 into believing in him as their father John 8:44 he is of hate, murder and revenge. Believing his lies causes your prayers to go to the wrong god John 9:31.
Anyone rejecting his true word now delivered to hold to their carnal deception will be trodden down by it Isa 28:15, Isa 28:18, 2 Thes 2:9-12. Prove all things by hearing ALL things Acts 3:23 at Much is required to whom much will be given. Be a workman of the King James Bible 2 Tim 2:15 now preached God's way Isa 28:9-10. His truth will set you free!
