We aren’t called to be imitation Christians, but we are to ‘Be imitators of God as dear children’ (Eph.5:1). Now there’s a verse that has been taken out of context by those who think they can be God or gods, or be ‘like God’ (See Gen.3:4-5). Why can’t people read the verse in context, starting off with the obvious word, ‘Therefore‘, showing how Eph.5:1 is the continuation from Eph.4:32, where Paul told the believers ‘And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you (See also 2 Cor.5:19-20). But what is all......

In this week’s episode we look at some practical areas that need to change in the new life of a believer. It may come as a bit of a surprise that Paul had to write to Christians to tell them that they need to stop lying, stealing, or continue to have angry outbursts of wrath (which is usually just bad temper), and not to slander (speak evil of) one another. Such things grieve the Holy Spirit of God. Therefore because we have been forgiven, we ought to forgive one another, just as......

This Sunday Eric shared this message on Faith and how various Biblical characters were ‘kept afloat during troubled times’, because of their obedience to God.Here are 3 Points to take away from this sermon: 1) Total Trust in the Written Word of God (2 Cor.5:7). 2) Total Dependance through a lifestyle of prayer and worship (See Matt.6:9-13; Lk.11:1ff). 3) Total Surrender to God’s Will and Purpose (1 Cor.2:9)....

What was our spiritual and mental state before we were regenerated by the Holy Spirit? Paul paints a dismal picture of ‘the rest of the Gentiles’ in Eph.4:17-19, which corresponds with his more lengthy discussion of the state of the whole world, as recorded in Romans 1-3 (See especially Rom.1:18-31). So it is a wonder that anyone at all has been saved out of that mess! Of course, if it was left to each one of us to find our way to Christ and be saved, none of us would have made it! But God broke......

What is the role of those of “The Five-Fold-Ministry” gifts mentioned in Ephesians 4:11-12 ? Are they there for all time throughout ‘the Church age’, or do we see Apostles and Prophets functioning the same today as in the formative days of the early church? What is their role? How can a church grow to maturity and hopefully numerically? Surely it is when every member, every joint and ligament “pulls its weight” or does its share, energised and empowered by the Spirit of the Lord....

This is a very short section but it is important to understand what it meant for Christ to first descend into the lower parts of the earth, and then ascend, and what was the purpose of this! Did Christ really descend  into Hell, or was it the grave? What was the Gift that Christ showered or poured out upon His people? Based on Ephesians 4:7-10....

Today we had guest speaker, Pastor Jim Smith. Jim is the senior Pastor of Happy Trails Christian Fellowship, Surprise, Arizona. Go to www.htcfsurprise.com for further information. Today Jim pointed out that although in Luke 2:14 the angels announced, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” the people involved in the story experienced anything but peace! Their lives were in danger, they experienced fear, and their lives were in turmoil. So what was the “Peace” that God had in mind? Listen to this excellent word in season to find out more!...

What a wonderful theme is found in this title and the accompanying songs. Our Lord did not cling on to His heavenly glory but came to this sinful world, knowing His destiny. He was on a rescue mission: “To seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10). He knew that He would not fail to “Save His people from their sins” (Matt.1:21). What is amazing is that God didn’t have to save any one! He set no plan in motion to save any of the angels who sinned (2 Pet.2:4ff), and in......

Can a man in his natural human state decide he wants to be born again? Can he come to Christ of his own accord or according to own “free will”? Or does it require a special act of God to renew his heart, quicken him or make him alive, so that he can respond freely and willingly to God? Toward the end of this message Michael shared about his mother’s life and testimony, and some excerpts from the eulogy that he shared at his mother’s funeral service on Friday 13th December.We have......
