Belong, believe and behave

Ps Andre brought a baptism service message Belong, believe & behave. We are all on a journey.  Baptism is the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.   We are all on a journey of faith.  Christianity is about Love, Grace Acceptance and Forgiveness.  It is Freedom. One Way to Jesus, of which could be entered via 3 doors. Door 1 – Intellectual or theological understanding, or an innate ‘unfounded’ faith in God.  BELIEF Reading the bible where it just makes sense. …

Amongst Giants – Pt2

This week Ps Andre spoke the second part in the series Amongst Giants. Giants of Faith – Nehemiah and the wall. Gal 5:1 – It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Giants are massive issues, they are freedom issues. Are there giants in a neighbouring land? What can you step up to the plate for? Opposition is opportunities for God. We…

Amongst Giants – Pt1

This week Ps Andre spoke about Amongst Giants. A giant is either a massive issue in our lives or they can be something in the darkness that we are unaware of and a giant causes a blockage. We, ourselves, need to become giants of faith and love, walking amongst our community. But to do so, we have got to be truly free. Galatians 5:1 says, It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do…

Designed for Destiny

This week Ps Andre spoke about Designed for Destiny. God has a plan and a purpose for your life. Moses killed someone, but that did not stop his destiny. David made mistakes while he was doing God’s work. God doesn’t make mistakes – You are where you are and who you are for a reason. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10 You…

DNA – Pt3

This week Ps Andre continued to speak about the DNA of Cornerstone – What are we made of? Jesus was a revolutionary. He was not what they were expecting. He taught: love your enemy; kingdom of God on earth; loving the unlovable; touching those who you don’t want to touch. He had radical thinking about the Kingdom of God. Revolution meaning ~ An overthrow of a social order, in favour of a new system. Jesus flipped things on it’s side –…

DNA – Pt1

This week Ps Andre spoke about the DNA of Cornerstone. We are Christ followers, Holy Spirit focused, Prophetic, Theologically mature, Biblically literate & knowledgeable, have Faith that moves mountains, Generous & Sacrificial. We are Christ followers and Christ leads in love. Read 1 Cor 13:1-13. If we don’t do any of these things in love we have nothing. Don’t miss the opportunities to be loving. 1 John 1:4 says, God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God and…

Philippians 4

This week Ps Andre spoke about Undermining Uncertainty from Philippians 4, in particular verse 6: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. The enemy wants us to abandon our calling, prayer life & Scripture. When we worry, we fixate, and when we fixate, we abandon. Worry causes things outside of our control, to control us. We, however, are not designed to be worriers but Warriors. If you…

Connections – Pt3

This week Ps Andre summed up the Connections series about Discipleship. He gave us the How to disciple sermon. There are four parts to the journey: Winning 1 Cor 9:19 says, “Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible.” We are called to win people for God. We need to be intentional at praying for at least one person. Feeding We need more nutrients, we need…

Connections – Pt2

Ps Andre spoke his second sermon in the Connection series, Intentional Discipleship. 2 Tim 2:2 says, You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others. And 1 John 2:6 says, Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did. Happiness is based on external circumstances. Joy comes from the Lord, and is an internal state…

Connections – Pt1

Ps Andre started a new series called Connections. This week we looked at Discipleship. Discipleship starts with connection. We all have a Calling. A general calling (to all mankind). Gen 9:7 says “As for you, be fruitful and increase in number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” Individual calling (our own). 1 Peter 4:10-11 speaks about our own gifts to be used to served others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. To point the…

His Way – Pt 3

This week Ps Andre continued the sermon series on His Way – Loving but firm. The unified church is the fortified church. A weakness with in the church is the ability to correctly correct. Matt 7:1-6 talks about judging others. The Pharisees were extremely judgmental, and Jesus was showing there is another way. Gal 6:1 talks of restoring one who has sinned gently. James 5:19 & 20 talks about telling a brother or sister the error of their ways. Luke…
