Making this a God Year

Matt Parrington spoke about what an Only God year looks like. It teaches you to be Confident, to grow in faith and trust. 3 things about God you should know: God loves God Leads God longs – He longs for our fellowship with Him. God went to the utmost extent to restore love to us. He wants us to grow but He doesn’t expect us to be perfect. However… He does expect us to be better, to be better, in…

Dealing with Challenging People

Jordan Jones spoke on Dealing with Challenging People. There are 3 things that will happen to us when dealing with challenging people: Reveal – What we learn about ourselves. It’s not all good. Grow – We need to grow in grace, humility & compassion. Show – It’s an opportunity to show Gods love. Ephesians 4:32 says; Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. The only bible that many people…

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…

Bearing Fruit

This week Ps Sheridyn Rogers spoke from John 15 (the vine and the branches).  God’s intention and expectation for each of our lives is to be fruitful.  If we are in a relationship with God we will leave a mark.  It’s more than prayer and church, it’s about all the time in between.  We need to be in constant contact with Christ.  By abiding in Christ there will be a return.  God expects a return (read Matt 25:14-30). So what does…

Philippians 3

This week Rob spoke from Philippians Ch 3, key verses from 7-11. Why did Paul say that knowing Christ was so central?  Acts 9 gives us the clue – Paul (then Saul) met Christ on the road to Damascus, where he was heading to bring the Christians back to Jerusalem to be punished.  As far as the law was concerned Saul was faultless, but still Christ asked on that road, “Saul, why do you persecute me?”  See it’s not the people Saul…

Philippians 2

This week Lyndon spoke from Philippians Ch 2. It is all about Humility and Honour. God finds joy in like mindedness, being one in spirit, with the same goal. Humility is the foundation to honour. Without humility we hold no honour. Real humility comes from surrender. We need to get out of the way and let it be ONLY JESUS. We need to think of heaven in terms of coming down a funnel (A funnel from Heaven), where the top end…

Philippians 1

This week Warren started a new series from the book of Philippians. Chapter 1 was written when Paul was in a Roman prison and is about encouraging the faithful Church. He had the attitude of ‘Whenever, wherever, do what Jesus did’. This book is full of treasure. It is for you – blessing of peace and grace. Partners in the Gospel – We are part of a Cornerstones Team (Do not underestimate what God can do through YOU). LOVE GROWS…

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…

When Love Goes to War

Garth Chin Poy spoke about When love comes to war. He started with the question “Do you want to fight?” We often say things from a purely emotional experience. It becomes something else when we give it a spiritual emotion. 2 Cor 10:3 says For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. Just as the Israelites had to step into the promised land, sometimes we too have to take that land from…
