History of Mira road Baptist Church
Mira Road Baptist Church
The Mira Road Baptist Church adores its existence since 1999 August when a missionary from Indian Evangelical Mission (I.E.M) Rev. Marson Khumlo and his family came over to Mira Road. .
Beginning with a small family gathering at St. Xaviers High School (Shanti Park Mira Road), it has now expanded to a congregation of 120 members comprising of 95% North - East youths and 5 % family members.
Adhering to the Word of God it stands against all heresies like Jehovah Witness, Idol Worship, Speaking of Tongues, and the Seventh Day Adventist which are rampant in Mira Road. Girded with the Truth, washed in the precious blood of Jesus, she prepares to present herself spotless and blameless as the bride of Christ (2 Co 11:2); feet shod with the Gospel, holding the shield of faith and the sword, we press on awaiting that glorious event the "Rapture": when the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven for those who believe in His salvation alone and for those who are walking in His Word.
For Jesus Christ said, "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven; but He that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.....And I will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23)
We are unique and precious in the sight of God for He has bought us with the precious blood of Jesus and nothing can separate us from Him.

Jesus said 'I am not come to destroy but to fulfill'. (Matthew 5:17)
Scripture Reading: Matthew 21:1-13.The prophecy of Zechariah 9:9 is fulfilled in Jesus, on Jesus' entry into Jerusalem.
After this event Jesus went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray. His words to His disciples, speaks to us today. 'Pray that you enter not into temptation'. Why do you sleep? Pray!
Are we engaged in activities, that dim our vision of God's plans for our lives, or dull our hearing of His gentle voice? Let us not sleep but pray.
Ladies please always dress decently for this is glorifying God. Dressing to church in appropriate attire shows that you respect God and His word. God has commanded women to dress modestly in I Tim 2:9.
Dressing modestly to your work place or college shows respect for yourself and reflects that you are children in obedience to God's commands and respect for God's word.
Do not wear tight pants, slacks, short tops, short skirts, transparent clothes. This sends the wrong message about yourself.
Do not rebel against the authority of the church and the elders for rebellion is like witchcraft. I Samuel 15:23
You are rebelling against God and His word.
Ladies! Let's be Modest.
Happy Mother's Day
Women hold an exceptional role, no human on earth can replace it. How much have we done to preserve it? When God created man and woman He blessed them and said 'Be fruitful and multiply' ( Genesis 1:28). God ordained this sacred unit in the Garden of Eden and blessed it.
The resolution for the celebration of Mother's Day, was signed by the U.S President Woodrow Wilson on 9th May 1910. Women have a significant role to play, at home - a mother, a wife, a friend, a servant, a handmaid and many more, as such the mother's role is outstanding, a God given task that requires patience, perseverance, a prayerful life and a sacrificial giving.
God honored Mothers, and this we see in His command to children, "Honor your mother' and to the husbands, 'Honor your wives, even as Christ also loved the Church and gave himself for it'.Jesus on the cross, though in His agony, charged Apostle John to look after His mother.
The Book of Luke is richly illustrated with women, mothers, widows, where Jesus Himself honored them and wept for them. Mothers,Jesus loves you, you are not alone in your toil, for God doth love your children so dearly, that He has placed the attributes of love, and perseverance in the heart of a mother, to carry out His plans in their lives. Hebrews 12:1,2 says we are surrounded with a great cloud of witnesses...let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.
William Blake in his poem "The Little Black Boy' pictures the beauty of the child's mother who took him on her lap, kissed him,and pointing to the East would tell him of God's dwelling from where He sends light and heat for the flowers, trees, beasts and man. Man is put on this earth ,a little space to learn the beams of love and is just a passing cloud, which would vanish when our lessons are learned and God calls us to glory to rejoice around His throne.
Dear Mothers, there is much to accomplish, keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and NEVER GIVE UP. 'In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength'( Isaiah 30:15).
Mothers You are Special!

The dangers of Heresy
Apostasy is serious. Jude gives examples of how God dealt seriously with Israel, with the angels that fell, and with Sodom and Gomorrah; but God is now dealing with apostasy more seriously than He ever was, because it is a rejection of Jesus Christ. God is no respecter of persons. He didn’t respect His own people who were unbelieving. He destroyed them He didn’t respect His own angels who were apostate; He incarcerated them. He didn’t respect Sodom and Gomorrah who knew the truth He wiped them out.
Jude reminds them of these Biblical truths and warns them of God’s Judgment on such apostates. He further states example of Cain, Baalam, Cove (Korah Num16:1-35) with his pronunciation of “Woe” unto them. Such men can have but one destiny. For them has been reserved the gloom of darkness for ever.
We see apostasy infiltrating not only the churches, but also the Christian nation. It is alarming and we ought to get down on our knees and pray before this massive calamity utterly shakes up the Christian faith.

Children's Day Special
Children you are special to God and to your family.A crown without a Gem has no beauty in it. Likewise a child without obedience to God's Word and the instructions of the righteous man is lacking in beauty. Remember to put on the New Man the beauty of Jesus Christ and to put off the Old Man the sinful habits. Ephesians chapter 4.

Prayer for the children and youths
Loving father, Almighty God, please protect every youth, child and infant from the evil one. Deliver every child and adult from the influences of the addictions, and the snares of Satan. Lord deliver every man from the evil influences of Satan causing them to harm innocent girls. Deliver every girl from the influences of lustful desire to cause men to stumble through their dress style and evil snares. Father, please help every husband to strengthen their bonds in their family, to love and honour their wives, and every wife to pay due benevolence to their husbands and children.
Lord wipe out the corruption in the schools and the dilly dally method of teaching in the institutes. May every school make education a passion for children, with teaching simple methods so as imprint the concepts on their minds.
Father all power belongs to you, and I plead you that in the name of Jesus every child, youth and adult will have victory in their study, their performances and their presentations each day. May your name be glorified. \In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Mira Road Baptist Church
The Sad Demise of our Youth President Vijay Pesidulla.
Vijay Pesudilla was known to us since 1999 ever since the Mira Road Baptist Church took its roots in Mira Road. His death is a mystery. 24 years young Vijay had a brief life-span. Yet his life is marked with obedience and a willing spirit for any errand for the church at any time of the day.He had found the key to eternal life-Belief and obedience to the only one way -the Lord Jesus Christ, who said, "I am the way the Truth and the Life. No man can enter heaven except through me" John 14:6.
The essence of his life is vivid in the bonds he made from strength to strength.
The stand he took against the evils that crept into the church.
The love of God is a mystery in that He took Vijay away.
Just two days before his demise,he found that his MRBC account had got deleted. so with the
permission of Pastor Marson he switched his responsibility to Daniel Foong thus wrapping
up his responsibilities as the administrator of the WhatsApp with not the slightest idea that he
would be leaving us for a while on 8 August 2014 he quoted thus " I am proud to announce
Daniel as the administrator.Please cooperate with him'.
The responsibilities that he bore,
In the family, church and many more;
Faithful was he, each step of the way,
What more can we say?
He's with Jesus today.
Our son, Our youth the pillar of our church Vijay Pesudilla
Hunt your Hidden Treasure
- Hunt your Hidden Treasure
God,s desire is to bless us abundantly. All he asks us to do is to obey Him and do what He commands us in the Holy Bible. Hunt your hidden treasure. For every success there should be a commitment.
Are You really a Christian?
How to know you are a Christian?
- Where is her Justice?
The women of today all over the world are seeking for justice. Can we find the security forces vigilant, loyal, and faithful? We pray that God the supreme Judge will wipe out these atrocities.
- The False Teachers of Today
The false teachers of of St. Peter's day, spoke solemnly of the punishment that awaited them. God is not idle, nor is he asleep. God remembers His children, He knows how to punish the unjust.
- The Dangers of Heresy
Heresy can be destructive, defiling and defamatory. The body perishes at death does that mean we will not be held accountable for the sins of the flesh? We should recognize and reject them.
- The Church and the Corrupt Practices
The church drifts, and we must ask the serious question are we preserving the sanctity of the church or are we a cause of blasphemy to the name of Christ and His word?

exjwlaurie on April 12, 2011:
Olga, what precious pictures! I know what you are speaking about here in your words. Having been a Jehovah's Witness for most of my life--now washed clean by the grace of God--through my faith in the shed-blood of the Lamb, Christ Jesus--my ONLY Lord and Savior; I so appreciate you sounding the warning against the heresy of their religion!
I too--sound the warning for any who will "hear" the message! Bless you!
olga khumlo (author) from Mira Road Mumbai India on January 30, 2011:
Truly, we do experience the reverence of God in our midst throughout our worship.The singspiration is composed of hymns accompanied with key-board and guitar led by the youths,very inspiring preparing our hearts ,leading us to the heart of worship.Referring to the Seventh Day Adventist ;the founder of this heresy is Ellen G.White .She claimed to be the Lord's messenger and her writings a continuing and authoritative source of truth.Her writings specify that the atoning sacrifice of Christ is not complete;sins are pardoned yet kept on books.Atonement requires a work of investigation ,a work of judgement and Christ inherited a sinful nature.Speaking of Tongues is simply blasphemed by the groups as it is an apparent blabbering of gibberish that is evident in the very phrases repeated 'Sakar Baba Sunder Baba'.Many Jehovah Witness tried to seduce our youths ,however they remained firm grounded in the Word of God. We're led by the Holy Spirit to be wary of these heresies.
James A Watkins from Chicago on January 23, 2011:
I enjoyed reading about your church. It sounds like a great place to worship the Lord. I was surprised to see Seventh Day Advetists listed as heretical. On what do you base that? And, speaking in tongues? Heresy?
Captain Jimmy from WV on October 11, 2010:
Keep Following TRUTH!
