Posted: 29 July 2016 / Joshua 2
Someone once wrote, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

This Sunday we're starting a new series on the book of Joshua. It's an Old Testament book about the people of God living with the promise of God in mind. As a result its very relevant to you and I as we are God's people living by God's promise that soon Jesus will return and bring us safely and certainly into the new heavens and new earth. It's going to be...Continue Reading

This week at church we are thinking the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is not a force or a principle of nature or a part of God or mode of his existence. The Holy Spirit is a person—a teaching (Luke 12:11-12), speaking (Acts 13:2), interceding (Rom. 8:26), grieving (Eph. 4:30) person—distinct from the Father and the Son.
"Where the Spirit is, there it is...Continue Reading

Last week we started a new series on the ecstatic happiness of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We saw that nothing makes God the Father happier than His Son. There is no love more powerful, more intense, more continuous, more pure, more full of delight than the Father's love for His Son.
This week we are looking at God the Son. Who is He? What makes...Continue Reading

‘All sorts of people are fond of repeating the… statement that “God is love”. But they seem not to notice that the words “God is love” have no real meaning unless God contains at least two persons… If God was a single person, then before the world was made, He was not love.’ (C. S. Lewis)
But He is love, for He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is not a...Continue Reading

There will also be a time of sharing after the sermon, where you will have an opportunity to tell us how you've been challenged, and what we need to do differently as...Continue Reading

This Sunday we come to the sixth of the letters Jesus sends to the churches which we read in Revelation 3. In this letter, He says there is an door of opportunity standing open for the church of Philadelphia. An open door! Did you hear that?
