Sunday Morning

The Way, Truth, and Life

John 14:1-6 Life can sometimes throw us into a spin. When this happens, how do we avoid getting dizzy? We need to fix our eyes on something steady and sure. Easter gives us a chance to do that, as we look again to the One who has defeated sin and death. In this message, we’ll think about something Jesus said just before He died. We’ll be reminded to fix our eyes on the One who is the Way, the Truth…

Faithful to the End

2 Peter 3:1-14 Today’s message marks the end of our 8-part series on the end times. We are currently in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are disorientated by the speed with which our way of life has been turned upside down. All over the world people are isolated, anxious and fearful. Could this be a foretaste of life in the end times? While cannot escape much of the chaos around us, the strategy given in our passage today…

Longing for Home – the Hope of Heaven

Revelation 21:1-7 Except for the most hard-bitten atheists, most people still hold to some view of an after-life. Often at non-Christian funerals reference will be made to the departed one smiling down on us and enjoying some vague new state of existence. But for the Christian, heaven is the promised destiny of all God’s redeemed people. While the Bible doesn’t teach us everything about heaven, there is much that it does. In this message Pastor Murray gives us a glimpse…

Death, Resurrection, Eternal Life

It’s not surprising that death is a bit of a taboo subject in our culture. It’s not easy to talk about. But we must. How should we view death as Christians? And what happens when I die? These are the questions we’ll ask of the Bible in this message as we continue our Facing the Future series.

Differing views about the end times (part 2)

Revelation 20:1-10 The end times have always been a source of speculation and debate among Christians, and no more so than how we understand (a) the role of Israel and (b) the question of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ in the last days. For some Christians these subjects barely make it onto their radar, while for others they demand compulsive attention. In this message Pastor Murray gives us a balanced overview of the main positions adopted by evangelicals,…

Differing views about the end times (part 1)

While no serious believer doubts the fact of Christ’s return, many will have differing views on the events and key people who will play important roles in the lead up to that day. Today we look in greater detail at some of these: tribulations, antichrists, the beast, Armageddon and apostasy in the church. And what do we make of the so-called ‘Great Tribulation’ and ‘the Antichrist’? Perhaps this message will help clarify for you what the Bible says about these…

Jesus is coming back!

Any discussion about the future from a Christian perspective inevitably centres on one key event – the second coming of Christ. And in the Christian worldview, all of history is heading towards that climax. Everywhere we look the New Testament is littered with this teaching. But does it make any practical difference to our lives? In this message we see afresh the relevance of this important doctrine for our faith today. And with the saints of old we also cry…

Christian community in an individualistic world

Romans 12:9-21 One of the most powerful ways Christians impact those around them is by the way they relate together. Sometimes we simply take for granted this mysterious thing called “fellowship”, yet many people in modern society long for this. A common observation of the early Christians by their pagan neighbours was: “See how they love one another”. In this message we are challenged to make this love practical, not just to our best friends, but also to the those…

Humility in an Entitled World

Philippians 2:1-8 Increasingly these days we see a sense of ‘entitlement’ creeping into our national psyche. We are told to stand up for ourselves and ‘grow a spine’. But the whole essence of the gospel teaches us the opposite. And the kingdom values of Jesus fly in the face of the mood of our modern world. Listen in as Pastor Murray challenges us to follow Christ in our relationships and in our ministries, and show the world that denying self…

Sexual purity in a permissive world

1 Thessalonians 4:1-8It goes without saying that modern society is very open about sex, and there is great pressure today adopt a permissive lifestyle. In the days of the early church things were very similar, perhaps even more extreme. So how does God want Christians to live in this sort of world? In this message Pastor Murray deals with God’s view of sex and marriage in a clear and uncompromising way …. a message that needs to be heard today.
