Re:Vision: A Place to Grow

Date 25th August 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage 2 Peter 1:1-11, 2 Peter 3:18

When you were growing up, did your parents ever say to you, ‘I wish you would grow up!‘? You know what they meant, don’t you? They wanted you to act more mature than you had been acting. I wonder if God looks down at His church and says ‘I wish they would grow up!‘? It’s

Re:Vision: Why Gather as a Church

Date 18th August 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Psalm 95:1-11

Two Christians gather to have coffee: Is that the church? Five or six people gather to read the Bible: Is that the church? We gather to hear a pastor preach and we sing some: Is that the church? What does it mean to gather as the church? The Protestant Reformers concluded that there were three

Re:Vision: GATHER

Date 18th August 2013  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Acts 20:13-38

Last Sunday we kicked off Re: Vision by saying that we are gospel people! We heard that the gospel IS the power of God for salvation as Jesus himself turns the hearts of those who will believe to God. This week we’ll start to look at four responses coming from this grace we receive in

Re:Vision: ‘Gospel People’

Date 11th August 2013  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Acts 18:24 - 19:7

This Sunday we are kicking off a sermon series called Re: Vision. It would be easy to say that this series is focusing on what our job as a church is, in other words the grand plan of what we’re going to do in the future. Right at the outset, however, we need to realize

Re:Vision: Not Ashamed

Date 11th August 2013  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Romans 1: 1-17

This morning we begin our series looking at some of the core values that we believe our church holds onto. The first is the Gospel, which is at the heart of all we say and do. If we are honest every one of us at one time or another has been ashamed of the gospel.

Noah’s Famous Ark – Part 2

Date 04th August 2013  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Genesis 6:14-22, 7:24, 8:1

Last week we explored God’s justice at work in the story of Noah’s Ark as he judges human sinfulness. Left there, it has to be said that the outlook for a bright future is pretty bleak. Thankfully, however, the story of Noah’s ark is about so much more than God’s righteous judgment. We also meet

Love… Never Fails

Date 04th August 2013  by Jim de WItte  Bible passage 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

When we get to heaven there are so many things that will be gone. We won’t need teaching because we will know all things; we won’t need preaching because the gospel is complete; we won’t need faith because we will see God; we won’t need hope because we will be complete in the presence of

Romans – The Result of Rejecting God

In Romans last week we were reminded that the gospel is God’s power to bring salvation to all people. As we speak it to other, God will transform lives. Not only will people change their destination (hell to heaven), but God will change the way they live. The question is, why is that such good

Romans – Death in Adam, Life in Christ

This whole passage contrasts Adam and Jesus, each of whom fixed the future of all the people in the age they initiated. Adam brought in the age of sin, and all who are descended from him have found themselves trapped in sin and death. Jesus brought in the age of grace, and all who trace

This week we begin a short series looking at some of the big truths the Bible teaches us about God. Perhaps one of the most well known, but not always well understood truths is that God exists as Trinity, three in one. But why is that even important? Sure the Bible tells us, but does
