Easter Sunday

Ps Andre spoke about a Tomb with a View on Sunday.  Jesus won the victory when He was resurrected by the power of God.  God came to give us fullness not so that we would be 1/2 empty.  It’s time to leave it all at the cross and walk as one who has the fullness of God’s power within.  Isaiah 25:8 says, He will swallow up death for ever.  The sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.  He will remove the…

Not because…

Rob spoke on Not because… based on the scripture in Mark 3:1-6. Rob said the man in this scripture was healed on the Sabbath in the synagogue not because he earned it, not because he was owed it and not because he was worthy.  Jesus shows concern for those with a disadvantage, even though the others in the synagogue didn’t want him there.  He showed them up, they were unconcerned for the needs of the people especially on a sabbath.…

Having Hope

Lyndon spoke about Hope on Sunday. We can’t live without hope.  We were told we can hope/dream again if we lose it. Hope is something that is always out in front of us, something good.  We don’t need to be afraid, God knows what’s ahead.  He knows the next season.  Hope deferred makes us sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.  Proverbs 13:12.  We never want to catch up to Hope because that becomes dark.  Hope must always be out…

Join the Movement

Warren spoke on Join the Movement.  It’s about sharing the journey, about being in power and strength together with the Lord. Leaders share the journey, whether we are the leader of our family, church or even the nation, to lead is to share the journey.  We learn leadership by following.  We go to church to follow Christ and learn, so that we can “GO, in the name of Jesus”.  We learn to put Christ at the center of our lives.  The purpose of…

Unity

Things we have in common are that we love Jesus, believe the Word & are in Church together.  This plus the word unity equals community.  Unity requires more than one person.  There is power in unity  through the mind, heart & vision.  There can be diversity within unity (the end is the same, but the how we get there can be different.)  If the enemy uses disunity (which he does all the time) he sees the power in unity. Unity can be broken into…

The Presence of God

Lyndon brought us a sermon on the Presence of God starting with Ps 139:1-7.  Verse 7 says “Where can I go from your Spirit?  Where can I flee from your presence?”  Indeed, where?  We do not want to do church without God.  Everyone wanted to be with Jesus.   Because when we are near Jesus we will see things.  Being around Jesus upsets the normal life, it causes a response or reaction from those around us. Jesus promised us the Holy Spirit who is…

Vision and Culture – Pt4

This week Ps Andre spoke on the vision & culture of being creative.  Eph 2:10 says we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works… Ps 139:13-16 talks of our being created in our mothers womb.  Our God is creative, and He does different things in all of us.  Because He is creative, we are creative.  Not all people, however paint or play an instrument. Some work with their hands and build or grow things.  You can be creative and make it work…

Vision and Culture – Pt3

Ps Andre spoke on Living Courageous and Praise & Worshipers as part of the Vision & Culture Series. First things first, you are not where you are by accident, and everybody could do with a little bit of courage. We have been called to GO and be fruitful – to multiply, GO preach the gospel reflecting Jesus – to live by the word and FIND that individual word for us to do. So what do you have to be courageous about to reflect your Christian walk?…

Vision and Culture – Pt2

Ps Andre spoke on Generosity and Authentic Joy as part of the Vision & Culture series.  He spoke about our purpose being: Connected to God Connecting to others Connecting others to God Jesus had a personal generosity, he was generous to everyone with his time, ministry & love.  Are we generous like Him?  What does it look like to be generous with our time?  A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Prov 11:25 . We need to have a culture of blessing because…

Journey to Jesus – Pt6

Rob spoke ACT 6 of the Journey to Jesus series – The final word. Rev 1:4 & 5: “Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne, and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth.“  How much would our lives change if this was what was at the back…

Journey to Jesus – Pt5

On Sunday Warren spoke on ACT 5 of the Journey to Jesus series – spreading the news of the king.  Jesus teaches us to love one another – the gospels tell us how to live as Christians (they deal with debt, pride, forgiveness etc)  We are told to love one another, to look out for the other person all the time. How we live is the gospel – churches that love one another are strong. The commands of Jesus are to…
