    based on 11 ratings
     | 16,810 views

    Often we wonder where we will get the resources to support God's work, but in many cases we already have it.

    Peter just shook his head. That was all they wanted was money. Couldn’t they see the bigger picture? That there was more at stake then just money. They had just arrived back in town and before they could even get settled the church was there with its hand out. Well it wasn’t ...read more

    How would you like to have been in that job interview? “So, you want to be an apostle, what previous experience do you have? None huh, oh right this is the first time the position has been advertised for.” “Yes, we do have a requirement, that’s right, just one: So were you with Jesus from the ...read more

    What did Jesus mean when he said that the law would not pass away?

    The biggest cop out for spiritual failure and the most common excuse for deliberate sinfulness are these words "I’m not under law but under grace!" and with those seven words we seek to absolve ourselves of any spiritual responsibility we might have for our behaviour. And when we are confronted ...read more

    With all the Hype about Evan Almighty it’s a great time to preach about Noah

    He wiped the sweat from his brow and took another look around the desert that surrounded him. The Sun baked the ground into a rock like consistency and the reflected heat simmered like pools of cool water on the hard surface. It was going to be another scorcher. I’m getting too old for this type ...read more

    Communion looks to the past present and future.

    It is probably one of the most memorable scenes from the New Testament. For three years they had travelled the width and breadth of Palestine, listening to him teach, watching him heal, marvelling at the miracles that he performed. Sometimes they found what they were looking for and sometimes it ...read more

The apostles are working full time to administer ...read more

    This is the fifth in my CSI series and the first of the New Testament, looks at the death of Stephen and what we can learn from it.

    It would appear that he had every thing going for him. He was one of the leaders of the early church. He was a person of influence and integrity and he had the respect and honour of his colleagues and peers. Think about it, how would you like to be described as “a person full of faith and the Holy ...read more

    As we move into a brand new year we often remember the previous year, but there are things that we would do well to forget.

    FORGET IT PHILIPPIANS 3:13-14 It’s almost gone, not quite but pretty close. By this time tomorrow 2006 will be but a memory and we will be standing on the threshold of a brand new year. Now during the first week of a new year it’s not unusual to reminisce about the past and to dream about the ...read more

     | 25,593 views

    We all want our churches to grow but have we actually considered the cost?

    Well it’s been a year. Hardly seems possible in some ways and yet on the other hand it seems like we’ve been here forever. Now understand that while we have only been here for a year in this church building this church body has been in existence since six of us started meeting in our living room ...read more

     | 824 views

    This message looks at the Mission Statement of Christianity.

    It was almost as if it had never happened. Almost as if it had been a dream, a bad dream, but just a dream. Everything was exactly the way it had been before.

    The story of Lydia gives us direction for the new believer.

    She was a successful business woman, actually she was a successful business owner and that was virtually unheard of in the time and society she lived in.
