Faith and Works – How we come to faith in Jesus

F

Good works are our response to the work of Jesus Christ on the cross through whom we have redemption and eternal life.  They show our love for God and for our neighbour.  Clearly the New Testament exhorts us to good works.  But our salvation is through faith alone, through grace alone, through Christ alone.  Because of this we know that we have salvation if we have truly...

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem – Andy Coomar

P

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.”Our feet have been standing Within your gates, O Jerusalem! Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord;2 Lord, hear my voice! Let Your ears be attentive To the voice of my supplications.3 If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?4 But there...

Discerning God’s Purpose

D

Let’s just have a word of prayer. Lord, we thank you for your word and pray you bless the time together and help me Lord to share as led by you, in Jesus’ Name, amen. Amen, praise God. Living in troubled times? I’m going to read a little section of Psalm 37 before I get into the message which I think speaks to us as where our trust should be psalm 37 verse 1: Do not fret because of...

The virus in Creation

T

If you look at what’s been made and you look at the evidence around you, it all points to a God who made you. You may have difficulty with the six days of creation. We can go into that. You may have all sorts of questions. There’s a book which the Answers in Genesis have produced called ‘The answers book’. It’s got four volumes that give you an answer to almost every objection...

Our Creed

O

12 For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day. 2 Timothy 1:12 We believe in one God, the Father, the almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally...

What’s God’s perspective of mankind? – Clayton Wells

W

25 Whom have I in heaven but You?And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.26 My flesh and my heart fail;But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. 27 For indeed, those who are far from You shall perish;You have destroyed all those who desert You for harlotry.28 But it is good...

The Redeemer of Israel – Isaiah 43

T

But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. 3 For I am the Lord your God...

The Resurrection and Judeo-Christian Tradition

T

This morning, I was speaking about the Gospel from the resurrection, from John’s point of view and one of the things we saw is that Jesus rose from the dead and that He was seen first of all by the women who were much more faithful and zealous to seek the Lord at this time, in the morning. And I suggested that the men, the disciples, had actually fled, most likely to Bethany, when Jesus was...

He is the Mystery of Godliness – Tim Coomar

H

Let’s turn to God’s word. So, we are looking at 1 Timothy chapter 3 and verses 14 to 16. Paul is writing to Timothy and he says, 14 These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; 15 but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 16...
