Remembering the Lord's Salvation
Exodus 13

Redemption has consequences. They are not optional. They are required. GOD redeemed his people from their captivity, from their bondage and set them free from that bondage.


The three consequences that we see highlighted for us here in chapter 13 of Exodus are;

1.Consecration (v1-2 and v11-16)

2.Commemoration (v3-10) and

3.Conformation (v17-22)


1.Consecration (v1-2 and v11-16)

Redemption has consequences. The immediate radical reorientation is called Consecration. The redeemed are to be consecrated, set apart, to be declared holy, to be sanctified. God’s instruction to consecrate the redeemed, didn’t stop as they left Egypt, it was to mark the people of God for the rest of their life. 


2.Commemoration (v3-10) 

God made the Israelites commemorate that day by instructing them to eat bread made without yeast as a constant reminder of how God had redeemed them from the land of slavery.


3.Conformation (v17-22)


Redemption has consequences, the redeemed are to be consecrated, constantly commemorating what God has done for them and lastly, the redeemed are to conform to God’s way, to be a follower of God.


Preliminary Theological Certificate (PTC)

A second 1.5-hour session for the Preliminary Theological Certificate (PTC) is planned to commence in T1 2023.

The Board of Elders commends the PTC as a worthy benchmark for elders and leaders of the church to aspire to and attain as a significant step in furthering your theological education. We would want for you to aspire likewise towards further theological education.

You can join PTC sessions purely to learn the course content, or you can enrol for exams which are administered online. Further information may be found at the PTC website:

If you are interested in studying the PTC, there are two things you can do.

1) Our Saturday morning sessions will resume in Term 4 (From October 15th to December 17th) and we will be working through the subject of Mark’s gospel. There are no pre-requisites required to study this subject, though completion of ‘Introduction to the Bible’ is preferable. You are welcome to join the classes at

2) Express your interest in joining the second session which will commence in term 1 next year, starting with the subject ‘Introduction to the Bible’. The day and time is TBC depending on people’s interest and availability. Please contact Ps Jose or send an email to

Prayer Meetings

Every Friday night from 8-9pm we meet over Google Meet and Sunday morning 9:00-9:30am over Zoom or in-person at church.

Baptism Service

Our next baptism service will be postponed to late Q1 2023. Further details will be published closer to the date.


Individuals wishing to baptized or confirmed should get in touch with Ps Jose and must apply in writing to the ESCCC Board of Elders (


Individual classes for men and women wishing to be baptised or confirmed at ESCCC are run as needed throughout the year. These cover the matters of personal faith, church membership and public testimony over the course of three sessions.


All baptism and confirmation candidates also participate in two group sessions in the two weeks leading up to the baptism and confirmation service, presenting their testimonies and learning about the baptism and confirmation service liturgy.

Electronic Giving

We give to what we love. Due to the restriction of our physical Sunday meetings as a loving precaution against the spread of COVID-19, we will not be able to collect a cash offertory as usual. Electronic giving instructions can be found on the Giving and Offerings page.

Missions Support

In support of God’s mission, we encourage all members to give regularly to the ESCCC Missions Fund, according to your means. The EFT details can be found on the Giving and Offerings page.


The Missions Fund will be allocated by the Missions Committee to bless ESCCC and our Mission Partners in missions work.
