What Are You Living For?

Date 11th October 2015  by Ryan Hemelaar - Operation 513 Leader  Bible passage 1 Corinthians 7:25-40

It is always very easy to get comfortable in life and be overly concerned with the things of here and now. But in this challenging passage that we’ll be looking at this Sunday night the Apostle Paul reminds us of our priorities and our purpose of life. What exactly does it mean to “let those

Up to a Point

Date 11th October 2015  by John Van Dijk - Elder  Bible passage Mark 10:17-31

The parable of the Rich Young Man is a really challenging message for all of us. Last Sunday, Ettiene introduced us to the FINE print of being a Christian. Discipleship comes at a cost. Like the rich young man, we are all keen to follow Jesus “up to a point”. This is more or less

In a world where the very idea of truth is questioned and claims to know the truth are seen as arrogance, it’s possible to downplay the importance of gospel truth. Sure the truth of the basic gospel matters, but how much beyond that? But the Bible is clear, truth matters. Why does it matter? And
