The Essentials – James 2

8/29/2018
More
Quick Quiz: Who is the good news of the gospel for? Everyone. Who is so big a loser God does not want us to tell them about Jesus? No one. I hope you passed. Treating people fairly and without prejudice is a basic of our faith. Jesus died for the most vile of people as much as He did for those that seemed like that had it all together. In fact we need to be just as careful that we do what Jesus told us to do and that is to ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’.

The Essentials – 1John 4

8/29/2018
More
Getting to the point, if you are God’s child you better love people. That’s it. We love because God loved us first and we want to show in our lives and tell by our words as many people that love as we can that God loved them so much He sent His Son to die for our sins.

The Essentials – Philippians 2

8/29/2018
More
We are surrounded by people that want to be viewed as significant, important or worth paying attention to. Athlete, politicians, movie stars, millionaires…whatever you can imagine. We live in a culture looking for acceptance and accolades. One does wonder if that is really what God wants for his children. If we look at the example of Jesus we see what God’s real desire for us is. Spoiler alert: It is not what you hoped it was.

The Essentials – Romans 8

8/29/2018
More
Not too much is our culture is seen as black or white. The truth is most things are some shade of gray. God tells us in Romans 8 that when we are Christians then we have some things in our lives that are in fact black or white and that being sure of these should bring us some security and hope for this life and for eternity.

The Essentials – Colossians 1

8/29/2018
More
Priorities are really important and when they get out of order the usual results are not so good. The simple reminder today is that in all the areas of our lives Jesus needs to be our first consideration. The facts that He is the creator, the reason for all of creation, the one who restores our relationship to God and is the giver of each moment is why He needs to be first place in our thinking. Colossians 1 tells us all about this.

The Essentials – Genesis 1

8/29/2018
More
In the beginning God… Perhaps the most significant words in all of the Bible are these as they perhaps lay the foundation for everything else that is coming after them. Taking God out of the equation or out of our thinking and decision making is really saying that we are the rule makers and we determine what is right, wrong or otherwise. Dependence and submission to the creator God of the universe is what Moses is trying to get us to do as the story of God’s love for us begins.

The Essentials – Romans 12

8/29/2018
More
The way we act matters. In fact it often identifies us to people that are watching us. If we are a business person we may be dressed for the office or meeting with clients. A carpenter probably has rough hands and sawdust in their truck. The point is that being something changes the way we act in daily life. In the same way a follower of Jesus should be easily identified by some unique characteristics in their lives as well. Romans 12 helps us discover what a true follower of Jesus should...

The Essentials - John 3

6/26/2018
More
What we believe can become complex at times but it really should not be. This summer we are targeting some of the great chapters of the Bible in order to discover, or maybe rediscover, the essentials of the Christian faith and the basic ideas that are critical for a follower of Jesus to embrace and live out. Today we look at John 3 which has probably the most famous of all Bible verses right in the centre of it.

Whole Heart - You and Me

4/22/2018
More
What is it that God wants from His children? It seems to sort of comes down to He wants our whole heart, our whole allegiance, our whole life. Will you give it to Him or will he need to wrestle it away from us? Open hands. Give Him your life.

Whole Heart - David

4/22/2018
More
Was he perfect? Not even close! So how can he be called a man after God’s heart? Well is is not about perfection but rather about how we view our sin and our failures. David learned that loving what God loved and hating what He hated was most important. A good lesson for us. We need to have a whole heart for God.

No Heart - Saul

4/22/2018
More
We begin a series on some famous people in the Old Testament. We will look at what made them successful and what they failed in. As always it comes down to their heart because that is what God is most interested in. Saul was the first king in Israel but he was way more interested in externals and it cost him his position as king. A huge reminder for us to consider well.

Zero - What makes me important?

3/27/2018
More
We all want to be noticed, recognized, applauded. In some ways that is ok but God also wants us to know that we are just like everybody else on the planet. Doesn’t matter how famous, how rich, how powerful, how intelligent, how attractive we are. The truth is that we bring nothing to the table that makes us any better that the rest of the people on the planet. Sorry to disappoint you.

Zero - What we do to merit Garce

3/27/2018
More
Man is always trying to do something to make God pleased with them. The best news is that you can’t do anything. I mean nothing. Never. We are saved by Grace, will forever glorify God by Grace and show the world about God’s love by Grace. Now that should take the pressure off!

Duration:00:34:02

Zero- Giving Grace

3/27/2018
More
We rely on Grace, we sing about Grace, we talk about Grace and yet we often fail miserably at actually giving it to others. This is the start of a short series on the big topic of grace and will challenge us to not on;y receive Grave but to freely distribute it too.

Happy New Year!

1/15/2018
More
As we sit at the brink of 2018 we may look back on 2017 in many different ways. The days ahead of us are a mystery and perhaps filled with some uncertainty. Isaiah 52:12 gives us a good frame of reference to enter a new year with all of the questions it holds. God is before us and behind us and His presence should bring comfort to us.

Christmas Eve

1/15/2018
More
Our Christmas Eve Service is always a great time of fun and informal celebration of the season. This year we look at the things that came to man that first Christmas Eve and perhaps why they are so important to us today. Merry Christmas

The Scenic Route

1/15/2018
More
Christmas can be a busy time. Understatement of the year, I know. But among all the clamor and clatter, the food and the fun, we can miss what really matters and usually it is none of these things. Imagine if the shepherds and the wise men had been too busy to go and see Jesus and worship Him. What would they have missed? Something way better than they had decided to spend their efforts on that is for sure. This Christmas slow down and take the scenic route. You may be surprised what you...

EMPOWERED - How the Holy Spirit works

12/5/2017
More
Rushed upon. That is how the Bible describes the coming of the Holy Spirit in both the Old and New Testament. David, Samson and the believers in Acts. Same picture…rushed upon. The unstoppable force of the church was that way because the Holy Spirit was active in their lives and they did amazing works. Why is that not the way the Church is today? In North America we are often kind of ineffective and the power of God is not seen like it was in Acts 2. We need to get back to that.

EMPOWERED - Why We Get the Holy Spirit

12/5/2017
More
Is Jesus not enough? In many ways yes. He is enough to save us and He is our redeemer for sure. But as we live life seeking to glorify God in our world we need power that is not in us without the Holy Spirit. In fact we have been given a mission to share and proclaim the gospel throughout the world and we are called to follow God’s design for our life. We need the Holy Spirit to do both of those things.

EMPOWERED - The Importance of the Holy Spirit

11/22/2017
More
Expectations were high for the disciples as they waited in Jerusalem. As we begin a new series today on the Holy Spirit, take a moment and think about what you know or what you think of when you consider the Holy Spirit. Why do we not desire the Holy Spirit to be working in our lives like He did in the life of the disciples? Maybe we have just forgotten what a blessing He is to us.
