Salvation stories

Jewish Paul had a salvation story. The Gentile Ephesians had a different salvation story. But though they were different, they shared plenty in common! In the end, every Christian’s salvation story has the same author, the same hero, the same key details and the same ending.  Ephesians 1:11-14

How rich we are!

In this message we begin a new series on Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.  He launches immediately into what one writer calls a “golden chain” of spiritual blessings that ought to thrill the heart of every Christian. How humbling it is to know that we have been chosen, adopted, redeemed, forgiven and given a glimpse of God’s eternal purposes!  And there are more in the next few verses!  May these wonderful truths drive us to our knees in gratitude and…

Fear, Forgiveness and favour

Listen as we consider the experience of Joseph’s brothers who went from a place of fear to a place of favour in the presence of the brother they had sinned against. As those who have sinned against a powerful and holy God, let us remember that forgiveness is the path from fear to favour. Genesis 42-45

Almost a Wasted Life (Samson)

What should we make of a man like Samson?  Incredibly talented, empowered by the Spirit of God, yet deeply flawed in so many ways.  In this message Pastor Murray gives us a glimpse of his “playboy ” lifestyle and eventual downfall.  But we also see how God chose to use him despite his many failings to deliver his Israelite people from the torment of the Philistines.  Samson’s story gives hope to all those who have wasted the best part of…

Learning To Trust God … Patiently

Among the many godly women in the Bible, Sarah is specifically mentioned for her faith in the book of Hebrews.  But her journey with God was a bumpy one, as we see in today’s message.  Over 25 long years she waited …. and waited …. and waited, until finally God fulfilled His scientifically impossible promise and enabled her to have a baby!  Her laugh of unbelief became a laugh of joy.  Perhaps you have been waiting for God to answer…

Going The Distance In The Life Of Faith

As we begin a new year with all its hopes and uncertainties, God calls us to keep on faithfully living for Him.  One man who exemplified this was the apostle Paul.   And in Philippians 3 he gives us a snapshot of his life – his early life, his conversion to Christianity, and how he pressed on as a Christian over many years.  Clearly his personal encounter with Christ was life-changing.  Whatever our age or stage of life, let us be…

A Unique Baby

Millions of babies are born every year around the world.  Billions have been born throughout history.  But one baby born 2000 years ago was unlike any other baby ever born.  The birth of Jesus was absolutely unique, but why?  Listen in as Pastor Murray shares with us three special reasons that help us understand the true meaning of Christmas, and make it relevant to each of us personally. John 1:1-5  and  1 John 1:1-4

A Unique Backstory

To understand the story of Christmas we have to go right back to the Garden of Eden.  What happened there brought darkness into the world.  The Old Testament records for us the long, sad story of sin and failure.  For thousands of years all attempts to solve the world’s problems failed.  But God refused to give up on the world and the people He had made.  He promised that one day a Son from the descendants of King David would…

Models of Ministry

As Paul presents the apostles as models of Christian ministry we are challenged to consider what it is we value in our Christian leaders and what kind of leaders we ourselves want to be. 1 Corinthians 4:1-17
