Whoever

1 John 4:13-21 English Standard Version (ESV) 13 By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus…

Such Great Salvation

I want to show that we should never be surprised by the depths to which sin can take human beings, but by the same token we should never be shocked by the wonders of God’s saving grace. Mannaseh lived a life of perversity, but when he humbled himself God restored him fully. Isaiah 44:21 English…

Love One Another

I want to show that the solution to attacks from outside the church is love within the church. This love, flows not from personal effort, but from the Love shown to us by God through His Son. God’s love for us gives us no escape from loving others 1 John 4:7-12 English Standard Version (ESV)…

Genuine Faith

I want to show that Genuine Faith is a life-changing, on-going relationship with Jesus Christ. It demands radical change, disposing of the obsolete and daily providing newness of life. 2 Corinthians 5:17 English Standard Version (ESV) 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.[a] The old has passed away; behold, the…

God created

In a day of secular beliefs, I want us to see that we are not random accidents or events, but we are in fact specific creations of God. Throughout history, God in Trinity has cared for His Creation and because it has been damaged He has taken responsibility to restore. Ecclesiastes 12:1 English Standard Version…

Our Righteousness

I hope to show that the glorious effect of justification should have an ongoing effect on our lives as we prepare for heaven, by becoming more like our God. This is not slavish religion, but a privilege prepared for us and made available to us by God. Revelation 19:7 English Standard Version (ESV) 7 Let…

Four Facts of Life

In this message, I want to show that it is possible to know that we are Christians without being presumptuous, because of the way we live, but also because of the work, promises and presence of God in our lives. John 3:11-14 English Standard Version (ESV) 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak…
