Garbage or Gain

Philippians 3:1-11Using his own life as an example, Paul urges the Philippians not to place any confidence in their own religious resumes to make them right with God. Our true confidence is only in the fact that we know Christ and are found in him.

A very personal encounter with God

Isaiah 1:1-13Life as an Old Testament prophet was vitally important, but often difficult and lonely. In today’s message Isaiah tells us how God called him to this 60 year ministry to the people of Judah. Through a personal vision, Isaiah received a glimpse of God sitting in all His glory on His heavenly throne, attended by angelic beings singing “Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord Almighty, the whole earth is full of His glory”. Isaiah was never the same again.…

Christlike Servants

Philippians 2:19-30 Timothy and Epaphroditus serve as examples of Christlike servants. We should imitate, trust and honour those who serve like Christ.

A Christ-like community

Philippians 2:12-18 In this message we consider what it looks like for the example of Christ (2:5-11) to work itself out in the context of our Christian community.

Isaiah 1:1-31This message begins a new series from the book of Isaiah, apart from the Psalms, the longest in the Old Testament.

What difference does knowing Jesus make?

John 15:1-17 When Jesus calls us to follow Him, He is calling us to a changed life, and this process of change the Bible calls holiness (or sanctification). Because of ingrained sin and its devious influence, there is always work for the Holy Spirit to do in us in order to “conform us to the image of Christ” (Romans 8:29). Slowly but surely, as the Spirit exposes our sin, we are to take whatever steps are necessary to kill off…

Why is the cross such a big deal?

1 Corinthians 1:18-31All over the world the cross is the most distinct symbol of Christianity. But why? In this message we see that the cross is actually the one great historic act of salvation that the whole Bible points to, and that sets Christianity apart from all other religions. Mankind’s greatest need is not a new, improved version of society, but every individual person (including each one of us) saved from their sins. And that is only possible through what…
